Cooking vegetables in your microwave
Vegetables should be washed just before cooking.
Rarely is extra water needed. If dense vegetables such
as potatoes, carrots and greens are being cooked, add
about ¼ cup of water.
Small vegetables (sliced carrots, peas, lima beans, etc.)
will cook faster than larger vegetables.
Whole vegetables, such as potatoes, acorn squash or
corn on the cob, should be arranged in a circle on the
turntable before cooking. The will cook more evenly if
turned over halfway through cooking.
Always place vegetables like asparagus and broccoli
with the stem ends pointing towards the edge of the dish
and the tips toward the center.
When cooking cut vegetables, always cover the dish with
a lid or vented microwavable plastic wrap.
Whole, unpeeled vegetables such as potatoes, squash,
eggplant, etc., should have their skin pricked in several
locations before cooking to prevent them from bursting.
For more even cooking, stir or rearrange whole
vegetables halfway through the cook time.
Most of the time, the denser the food the longer the
required standing time. For example, a baked potato
should stand for 5 minutes before serving, while a dish of
peas may be served immediately.
