Steaming veggies in the microwave is so quick and easy using my foolproof ziplock bag method. Delicious freshly cooked vegetables that retain all their nutrients in just 3 minutes!
A selection of fresh vegetables
- Chop any large vegetables like broccoli or cauliflower into bite sized pieces and add them all to a microwave-safe plastic bag.
- Seal the bag 3/4 of the way across if using a ziplock bag but be sure to leave a small gap so the steam can escape.
- Put the bag into the microwave and cook on high for about 3 minutes.
- Open the door and allow the steam to escape and the bag to cool down. Check if the vegetables are cooked enough. If not cook for another minute.
- Serve immediately.
