Who doesn’t want to dig into personal decadence? Think baking will require too much precision, ingredients and preheating the oven? Forget it. How about a total of 10 minutes and at least three components? Check out these different cup cake recipes and get straight to instant gratification.
2. Make a delicious breakfast with eggs
Forget about the hassle of pans and worrying about dirtying the stove with butter or oil. No matter how you like your eggs—scrambled, hard-boiled, side-boiled, or hard-boiled—the microwave can cook them for you in just a few minutes. We guarantee, your microwave hard-boiled eggs will taste better than your stove-boiled eggs! The best part? While the microwave is spinning, you can use the time to prepare toast and coffee/bottle.
3. Steamed vegetables
Use them in rice dishes, simply spice them up and gobble them up or turn them into salads with dressings, microwave steamed vegetables can be used in many ways. Forget about complicated steamers and hot water on the stove. Steam your veggies in a covered bowl in the microwave with some water, and you’re good to go!
4. Crisp soggy snacks
The humidity in Mumbai can ruin the flavor and crispiness of all your favorite snacks. Just put your portion in a microwave-safe jar and heat it up for 30 to 60 seconds. Once in the microwave, leave the bowl out for a few minutes and enjoy your crisps.
5. Chestnut Toast
Yes, it can be done in minutes, and it can be done in the microwave. Make sure you place your nuts in a single layer on a microwave-safe dish and stick it in for a minute. After a minute, rearrange them and place them for another minute. Continue the process at one-minute intervals, rearranging them and flipping them over so they bake evenly. Check them out along the way and stop when they’re baked.
6. DIY fresh herb powder
Enjoying a generous dose of aromatic herbs on your pasta, pizza or chicken? Dry your herbs, fresh, in the microwave. Place 4-5 sprigs of soft herbs you want on kitchen paper towels and microwave for 2-3 minutes. During that time, they will dry out and easily crumble into powder. These powdered fresh herbs will have more flavor than the bottled ones.
7. Foaming milk for your cappuccinos and lattes
Missed the regular dose of bubbly cappuccinos and lattes from your favorite coffee shop because you don’t know how to get frothy milk? Then get over the feeling and use your microwave! Yes, you read it right. All you need is a small jar. Pour your milk into a jar and close the lid. Shake well for a minute or two until you see all the foam. Immediately microwave for 30 seconds. Viola, you have your milk foam!
