Cooking with the microwave
The microwave oven is one of those inventions of the twentieth century which allows us more freedom in the kitchen, despite the fact we sometimes do not know its versatility. A microwave is used not only to heat, but also for cooking raw food, especially vegetables. Here is how to cook broccoli in the microwave.
Firstly wash the broccoli and cut it into suitable sizes to be consumed and put into a microwavable bowl. Then cover the broccoli with clingfilm and perforate with sufficient holes so the vegetable can breathe and to prevent it burning.
Once securely covered put the bowl into the microwave and cook on high power for about ten minutes, keep an eye on it. The time will vary depending on the amount of vegetables being cooked and the wattage of the microwave. When the broccoli is blump it is ready to dress and eat.
Cooking broccoli in the microwave will help you not only to save time, but also avoid contact with wáter. As indicated on many occasions cooking broccoli in wáter reduces nutrients and vitamins therefore steaming in the microwave is the perfect answer.
