Hallelujah to the person who invented the microwave. It’s the contraption in the kitchen that makes us all iron chefs because left overs still count as great meals right? Besides being able to make a delightful mango cake, did you know you can cook actual meals with just a microwave? Forget the limp vegetables, it’s time to take it to the next level:
Yes, an entire fish. Take your fresh fish from the market and slice it three times across the side. Garnish with slices of ginger and green onion. Place the fish in a microwave safe dish and add a bit of water. Cook for 9 minutes on high. While you are waiting, heat up oil on the stove but not until it boils. When the fish is ready, pour the hot oil over the fish and add a splash of soy sauce. You are now an amazing chef, pat yourself on the back while your friends dig in scrumptiously.
No, not the plastic cup version but the actual whole sha-bam. I know, how much more instant can you get? This one is for the lazy people who refuse to boil water. Throw in some dumplings to spice things up!
Want a quick snack on the go? Stick these suckers into the microwave for 60 seconds and place on top with rice and hot sauce. It’s at home sushi!
Take your potato and slice them thinly. Toss them in a bowl with oil and salt. Spray a microwave safe plate with cooking oil and spread out your slices. For 2-3 minutes on high, let the chips turn brown around the edges and then flip them over. Set aside for cooling and you now have crunchy and healthy chips!
If chips aren’t your thing then bake a potato! Pop half a potato into the microwave for 10 minutes and then scoop it out to mash around with sour cream and cheese. Comfort food created within minutes.
Hot, slurpy meals are definitely a fave for the colder seasons, this healthy pumpkin oatmeal is a great breakfast food to wake you right up. Cinnamon, pumpkin puree and quick cook oats are all you need!
Why spend so much at Starbucks when you can make your own yummy drink at home? Milk froth is so easy to make: Fill half a cup with milk, add cover and shake for 30 seconds. Pop off the lid and place cup into the microwave for 30 seconds. Pour into coffee or tea and now you have a delicious drink.
Forget the movie theatre, have your own popped corn without the disgusting butter that concession stands chimp out on. Drizzle some melted chocolate or sprinkle some cheese powder on top for that burst of flavour. The popcorn is your oyster.
This is a Mexican dish that will satisfy any craving and leave you wanting more. Tortilla chips, salsa and cheese is a combination that cannot go wrong.
Heck yes to these eggplants. You don’t need the skills of master Ramsey, you only need your two magical hands.
No need to get frozen pizza. Try the better alternative: PIZZA BREAD! Spread tomato sauce on a slice of whole wheat bread, toss on shredded cheese and pieces of ham then pop into the microwave for 40 seconds. Kick those pizza pockets out the door.
