How can I give steam vegetables flavor? Without using; butter, cheese or salt?

Fresh herbs like basil, chives, parsley, coriander, ground black pepper, lemon juice. For a sauce, use yoghurt, tahini, olive oil with dijon mustard, hummus, roasted pepper and tomato, chilli sauce.

Here are things I use on vegetables instead of butter, cheese or salt:
Garlic powder or sautéed minced garlic
Citrus, lemon, lime and even orange
Celery Seed...especially deliscious in thre water with corn on the cob. A must try.
Cumin with canned corn/corn on the cob
Minced red onions
Roasted red peppers
Extra Virgin olive oil drizzled over cooked veggies is very good, so are
Infused flavors in extra Virgin olive oil, such as lemon, lime, toasted sesame seed oil, garlic, basil, paprika and other flavors.
Herbs d' Provence
Soak veggies in non fat salad dressing and grill or roast in oven
Mint is fantastic with carrots
Roasted veggies in the oven brushed with olive oil and herbs are very good
Zucchini, tomatoes and onions halved and grilled are full of flavor
Sautéed garlic and onions
Mushrooms, raw or sautéed
Baby cocktail size onions
I stopped using butter and regular table salt years ago. When I do use salt, it is either sea salt or Pink Hymilaian Salt, sparingly.

Maybe try something like Mrs. Dash, or a similar seasoning mix that has flavors you think you would like.

Mrs. Dash is a brand of no-salt seasonings that flavor doggone near anything. They're super good on steamed veggies and really convenient.

Fresh lemon juice works well, and a drizzle of honey

A drizzle of balsamic vinegar is good on some.
Apple cider vinegar is good with some
Any variety of herbs and spices will work. Placed in the water or on the veggies they will infuse the veggies as they cook.
Soy sauce..although that does have a sodium content.
Lemon or other citrus, orange with carrots is good.
And simply blanching veggies and then serving them cold is a great option with a dip made from hummus or avocado or even a salsa. (jicama chips with salsa or hummus!)

Try using dried thyme or sage. Liquids would likely just run off.

I say your comments. Yes, you can use whatever you wish, but steam veggies first, then place in a bowl and add and mix whatever you want. Soy sauce and garlic would be really yummy together. So yeah, whatever seasonings you decide, do it, just steam first, then mix altogether while still warm, gently, so you don't crush anything. I do this a lot myself :)

Balsamic vinegar goes well with steamed vegetables.
