Got steam? It's not only one of the healthiest ways to cook, it's also the only way food is cooked at Steamed Organic Vegetarian Cuisine. The warm fig and fennel salad; quinoa quesadilla; and happy tuna fresca bowl (with “vegan tuna, walnut meat and chipotle sauce”) are all prime choices to impress your vegan friends — or your cardiologist. With a menu based on organic produce that's been engineered for maximum flavor by nature and not Monsanto, it's like a meal you'd make after a successful trip to the farmers market if you actually had the willpower to assemble everything yourself. 801 E. Third St., Long Beach. (562) 437-1122, —Derek Thomas
