DIRECTIONS

  • Put vegetables into a covered, glass casserole or other suitable microwave cooking dish with a lid. Add water if you are making a solid, dense vegetable like Brussels sprouts or if you like your veggies soft-textured.
  • Microwave on high for 4-5 minutes. Stir. Repeat twice. The vegetables should now be hot through but still bright-colored and firm.
  • Continue the repeats if softer veggies are desired.
  • Note -- microwaves vary tremendously. Ultra-high power versions will take less time. Older, lower-power versions will require more. Adjust so that you have 3 cook-stir cycles for the most even results.
  • Serve plain or add whatever seasonings or sauces you desire.
