any ideas for cooking in the microwave ? healthy meals that taste good /are simple to prepare.
I tend to use mine to reheat things like lasagne etc. that have already been cooked, or for defrosting things I'm about to cook
If you want to not use an oven, things like couscous and bulgar wheat are great as you only need hot water form a kettle
I make this all the time and it's very easy to change up the flavor by changing the sauce added. You can use all beef, all turkey or a combo of both which is what my family likes best.
Makes 8 servings
1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef
1 lb ground turkey breast
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 clove minced garlic
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup bbq sauce, divided
Mix first eight ingredients in a large bowl. Add 1/4 cup of BBQ sauce. Shape into loaf. Placed in a microwave loaf pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray, cover.
Micro on 50% for 15 minutes. Pour 1/4 cup BBQ Sauce on top of loaf; carefully spread to cover. Replace cover and microwave on 50% for 15 minutes or until meat thermometer reads 140 degrees.
Let rest for 10 minutes.
I use the steamer bags for veggies. It makes broccoli taste like you are in a restraurant adn the best corn on the cob-usually halve theem throw in some butter and salt and delish!
