Veggies. Steamed. In a microwave. Revolutionary. Nah, but the simplest of all ways to prepare your veggies without the added calories and sugar that comes with putting a marinade on them.

You need to eat your vegetables and this is arguably the quickest yet most gourmet way to do so. Like a wittle sauna for your bowl of veggies.

    Cover the bowl with saran wrap (or a lid) and microwave for 2 minutes. If they’re not ready, flip and place back in the microwave for 1-4 minutes, flipping at each minute interval.
