NOTE: This recipe is for an 800 watt microwave. Most of our microwaves are either 1100 watts or 1200 watts. Powering down your microwave is easy. Set the number of minutes you want to cook, Then push “power level”. You can enter numbers from 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest). See below
For 1100 watts for 1200 watts
10 = 1100 watts 10 = 1200
9 = 990 9 = 1080
8 = 880 8 = 960
7 = 770 7 = 840
And so on
I usually set my 1100 watt over for 7 , let it cook the given amount of time and then just add bit more cooking time to bring it up to par.
Place 1/3 C water beneath the tray (or in the steamer if you have no tray). Put all ingredients in steamer. Close lids and cook in microwave for 4 minutes (800 watt microwave.. see below) Serves 1 to 2
NOTES: Cooking vegetables in water leaches vitamins. Placing the water beneath the tray steams the vegetables making them more nutritious.
Most microwaves today are 1100 to 1200 watts. To powerdown your microwave you must first know the wattage (See the inside wall – or edge of microwave when you open the door).
Enter cooking time (in this case 4.00 minutes). Press “Power Level” and enter a number 1 – 10 (10 is full power). Example: If you have a 1000 watt microwave, press 8 for 800 watts.
