Q: Easy recipes for microwaving.?
My partner works shifts and a lot of times works over dinner time in the evening, I hate giving him microwaveable meals to take with him all the time. I’m looking for recipes of things to cook that he can easily microwave at work. Nothing spicy or with peppers cos they give him terrible indigestion. I already do shepherds pie, lasagne and a chicken and mushroom pie so ideas for anything else would be appreciated. Thanks a lot.

A: Sausage casserole

1 packet of sausages
1 packet of passata (sieved Italian tomatoes)
salt, pepper, herbs to taste

If you like it you can add a sliced chorizo sausage

Just put the ingredients into a casserole, put in the oven and leave for 40 mins. Microwaves really well.

serve with crusty bread.

Basically anything with a sauce seems to microwave pretty well.

I also use a steamer – they are about £20

I keep a stock of foil parcels (fish or chicken with herbs / butter/ seasoning) in the freezer and put them in the bottom of the steamer with veg on top. 20 mins later i have a cooked meal.

Q: What are some good microwave recipes?
I know the recipe for a microwave brownie and chocolate cake. I was wondering if anyone knows any simple microwave recipes.


Preparation Time: 8 minutes
Microwave Time: 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 minutes

2 eggs
2 english muffins, cut in half
2 tomato slices
2 to 4 slices of thinly sliced fresh mozarella
Small handful of fresh, washed basil leaves
Olive oil to taste

Preheat a 2- to 2 1/2-quart or 10-inch square microwave browning dish on HIGH (100%) for 2 minutes. Using oven mitts, carefully remove dish to a heatproof surface. Add 2 teaspoons butter or margarine to hot dish; tilt dish to coat bottom with butter. Carefully break 2 eggs into dish.

With a fork, prick egg yolks straight down through membrane. Cover with a glass lid. Microwave on HIGH (100%) for 45 to 90 seconds until eggs are fully cooked. Remove from oven; let stand, covered, for 2 to 3 minutes before serving.

Open the english muffins, toast them, and drisil a little olive oil on each muffin. On each muffin, place 1 egg, 1 tomato slice, 1 to 2 slices of mozarella cheese, and several fresh basil leaves. Finally, top with the second half of the english muffin.


Q: Any recipes for potatoes in a microwave or is that too weird?
I have potatoes but I’m lazy to make anything that will take much time. Does anyone have a quick microwave recipe?

A: Oh certainly, quick and easy…………no worries. If you want a baked potato, pierce the skin with your fork all over the potato then set in on your Micro plate and cook for 6-8 minutes. If you want mashed potatoes, cut up your potatoes into quarterly sections, drizzle some EVOO, salt, pepper and butter, cover the dish with saran wrap with a venting sequence, cook for 7-12 minutes, depending on how many potatoes you have in the dish. Then do your typical addition of milk, butter and mashing of the taters…………..If you want Herb Roasted Potatoes, then cut whatever potatoes you have in 1/2, drizzle with EVOO, S&P, Italian seasoning, garlic and onion powder with a couple of dollops of unsalted butter. Microwave on High for 8 minutes, stir, then cook for a final 2-5 minutes, depending on the quantity of potatoes that you have. Good Luck……..I love the Microwave for certain things.

Q: Hi guys, i am pure south Indian vegetarian can u help me, how to cook easy microwave recipes?
i want only vegetarian recipes ,guide me suitable dishes & websites .Pls help me .

A: Microwaves kill food. Don’t use them to cook with.

Q: Does any-one know of a book or website that has basic step by step microwave recipes.?
If it’s a book tell me a website or shop where I can get it from. I want recipes like soup, scrambled eggs, nachos, etc
I live in Australia

A: Your microwave actually (if new) comes with recipes as well as how to use the oven. If you have the appliance “secondhand” you may be able to go online – look up the make and model and download (for free) the guide that may have recipes.

Q: What are some cooking recipes without a stove?
Alright so I’m in a military base and the barracks I live in has no stove. I only got a microwave as the major cooking source. Can I buy any equipment that will let me cook without setting off the alarm. Also what are some good microwave recipes?

A: If I had only one other gaget or appliance I might choose a crock pot for the following reasons… It uses less electricity. You can put ingredients in the pot in the morning and come back to dinner. It is simple to wash, takes up little space and isn’t a heat/fire hazard.
You could also use a one or two burner hot plate or a toaster oven.
Best of luck…and THANK YOU for your service!

Q: Where can you find genuine 1980’s microwave recipes online?
I want to throw an 80s style dinner party, and to complement my black nylon (so static!) shoulder-padded Jerry Hall-esque LBD, I thought that I should attempt to serve food only cooked with the microwave (alongside prawn cocktail and Blue Nun), but I can’t find anything on the internet. Can someone help?

A: do you really want a micro meal? because it was very 80s to not only use the microwave but to use the frozen microwavable meals. perhaps you can micro wave the 80s pizza rolls, tuna helper and put out some microwavable pot pies and pizza. because finding meals to microwave isnt that hard. try this link:


have fun!!

Q: college dorm microwave recipes?
im looking for cheap and quick dinners, snacks or desserts.
im especially interested in recipes for desserts.

A: A couple I used when all I had was a microwave…
you said you wanted desserts…

1. Take a pear and cut in half. Sprinkle little cinnamon, drizzle with honey(or syrup, but honey tastes better with the pear). Heat a couple minutes (depends on microwave) Very good.
2. Buy some apples and slice into wedges. Buy some caramels and place in bowl. Heat your caramels until melted. Stir and serve with apples for dipping.
3. Melt chocolate in micro, use to dip strawberries or bananas or store-bought poundcake-cut into squares. Lay them on foil or wax paper to dry. (or dip as fondue style)


1. Microwave enchiladas – frozen burritos, enchilada sauce, cheese, black olives
Place burritos in microwaveable dish, pour sauce over, top with cheese and olives. Heat as directed on burrito pkg. maybe a few minutes longer. Be careful not to overcook-burritos can get hard.

If you don’t find what you want here, I googled a couple microwave dessert sites. Here are a few links :…/Microwave_Desserts_and_Baking_Tips.htm

Q: Can anyone give me a few simple microwave recipes?
Nothing that requires too much time or too many ingredients. Maybe something that’s just slapped together and tastes good.

A: Get a potato, stab it several times with a fork, then put it in on high for ten minutes. Maybe if you’re microwave is a low wattage, it’ll need fifteen minutes.

Then, open a can of baked beans. If you like, drop in some raisins or bits of tomato. I’m a vegetarian, so I will also add quorn sausage chopped up. It probably wouldn’t work with real meat though. Anyhow, heat the beans and whatever else in a covered bowl in the microwave for two minutes.

Then, cut the potato in half, put it on a plate, pour the beans onto the plate with it, put everything back into the microwave, and heat for two minutes more. Then it’s ready to eat!

It’s good to add butter (and cheese!) to the potato, and if you have any herbs you really like, sprinkle them over the top.

I eat potato in this way once or twice a week- it’s a quick, easy meal, and it tastes good.

Hmmm- I see other people are saying five minutes for baked potatos. I like to eat really big ones though, so I guess that’d explain the time difference. A small potato may need less time to cook, but if it tastes raw, just put it back into the microwave and give it two or three more minutes.

Q: Good microwave rice recipes?
I’m at uni, and all I have is a kettle, fridge and a microwave/grill/oven combo. I can cook rice in the microwave, but does anyone know any recipes or ingredients to add that will be more interesting than just eating plain rice? Preferably quick, cheap and not requiring much washing up. Thanks!

A: Absolutely!

You can use, you know them Ramen Noodles and how they come with the packet of flavoring that you put on the noodles? You can use that packet on your rice instead!

Also, you can add butter, garlic salt, and add a veggie to the rice like corn or peas.

I also love Goya Sazon seasoning. You can mix one packet into your rice and add a pinch of Adobe seasoning and it will taste flavorful and more ethnic like Hispanic rice.

Q: does anyone know any good sites that feature microwave recipes?
