The Best Recipes for a Tasty Microwave Meal

Many think of their microwave as a place to quickly heat leftovers or pop up a movie snack, but we see the microwave as an excellent source of gourmet dinner inspiration. Here are 4 surprisingly easy dishes you can make in a microwave.

Salmon fillets and broccoli. Sounds questionable, but salmon is quickly cooked in the microwave and when done right, comes out moist and flaky. Alice Currah at provides these quick instructions for making a spicy salmon in the microwave.

Chicken Fajitas. Who says Tex-Mex needs to be a big production? Follow these quick instructions to have chicken fajitas on the table in less than 10 minutes, complete with tasty peppers and onions.

Risotto. Risotto’s traditional directions often include the words “stir constantly,” meaning you will spend a while stuck by the stove. Luckily, the microwave removes that dilemma! Brit + Co offers up three recipes for a 10-minute microwave risotto.

Dessert. No meal is complete without dessert, and we’ve got several quick and tasty desserts for a crowd. Check out sweet Chex mix from This Week for Dinner, or for a sweet and sticky experience try monkey bread in the microwave from the Neighborhood Moms.

    Hello to everyone wanting to cook in a microwave. It is getting a lot easier to do these days. My wife and I both sell Tupperware and they have many new products out to cook an entire meal all in one container. You can cook your main dish in one layer, your vegetables on another layer and your desert on a third layer all cooked with steam. We also have a brand new microwave pressure cooker. For example you can cook a 3 pound roast in 30 minutes or mac & cheese from scratch in 15 minutes and we have recipes. We also have microwave pasta& rice steamers, a new breakfast maker for poached eggs as an example, snack maker to make your own granola bars with whatever you want in them plus lots more.
