Using a Steamer

Never used one before.
It has the pan base for the water and two tiers. I need to steam, brocolli, cauliflower, diced carrot & swede (already mixed together). In which order should they be?

I then need to steam an apple and some butternut squash and sweet potato for DS's lunch this week - i guess this will be separate as there won't be enough room.

Help pls? And how much water should fill the bottom?

No idea, my steamer is the type with a timer and a water level display!
It advises you to cut veg to similar size and place the things that take longer to cook at the bottom
You can't really go far wrong...Just give it a bash and keep an eye on steam output...add more water if you need to

Start off with the veg that takes the longest to cook and then swap that to the top layer when you put the rest on IME, otherwise the stuff at the top takes longer than it should.
