It’s always been there for us—a trusty tool, always ready to heat a cold dinner in a flash, warm some milk or even create a great meal from scratch, in no time at all. The microwave has changed how we cook, offering shortcuts and hacks to make cooking a cinch.
microwave cooking dishes
After years of testing and experimenting with the best ways to use a microwave, here are some of my top ways to use it for cooking healthy dishes:
Steamed dish: fish in papillote:
Cooking fish in parchment paper eliminates the need for extra fat or oil, makes no mess if sealed properly, and gives you a flavorful meal of moist, delicious fish
Baked dish: Baked potato:
When you need something filling and satisfying, a baked potato can do the job well. Avoid a long cooking time in the oven by using the microwave, and you’ll have a baked potato in around 12 minutes!
Cooked dish: scrambled eggs
Did you know you can have a plate of scrambled eggs in under a couple of minutes thanks to your microwave? Add some veggies from your fridge and you’ll have a lightning-quick meal full of protein and nutrients.
Veggies with cheese
Yes, you can definitely cook your frozen veggies on the stovetop or steamer, but cooking them in the microwave is not only the shortest way, it best conserves the nutrients of the vegetables by limiting the cooking time. You can follow the cooking instructions on the package for cooking the veggies, in addition to adding a bit of salt, pepper and olive oil. Then, after a short time microwaving the vegetables, you can add some cheese on top to melt. This makes an exquisite light meal or snack!
My favorite pastry hack: melted chocolate
Melting chocolate in a water bath over the stove takes way too much time in comparison to melting it at 20% power a few times in the microwave
