If you're talking about the little plastic steamers, such as
sold by Black & Decker - yes, you can cook brown rice in
them. I do it all the time. It comes out very nice, but
takes a long time - 60 minutes. You should have an
instruction booklet with your steamer which will include
directions for brown rice.
No, I've never thought of seasoning veggies during the
cooking process, but it's a good idea, thanks, I'll try it.
So far as I know, all veggies (maybe not eggplant which
would probably just turn to mush) steam very nicely.
