Microwave-Steamed Veggies

What you need:

    • Microwave-safe bowl (preferable not plastic…)
    • Some water
    • Any fresh or frozen veggies (some that steam well are: broccoli, carrots, brussel sprouts, corn, kale, peas and spinach)
    • *Optional* – toppings of your choice (cheese, salt/pepper, garlic powder etc.)


Fill your bowl with however many veggies you want to eat. Rinse the veggies slightly with water by filling up the bowl, swishing the veggies around with your hands and dumping out the water in the sink. Generally that’s enough water to steam, but if it looks unusually dry, add 2 spoonfuls of water to the bottom of the bowl. Cover the bowl with a plate or a microwave cover and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Let the bowl sit in the microwave for another minute. Take out of the microwave with a hot pad, as it will be very hot. Pour out the water and add your toppings. :)
