Microwavable food for lazy days!

Microwavable food for lazy days!

Working from home surely takes up most of our time even just staying at home the entire day. There are really days that we feel exhausted and extra lazy to spice up our cooking. Preparing a full meal for yourself or for the entire family, is fulfilling but would sometimes make you lose appetite just from the thought of all the preparation and cleaning. Some would rather just grab a bag of chips, order online or resort to a *still” sumptuous and full meal using our handy microwave!  

Here are some of the helpful meals you can come up:

Mug Cake

If you’re a fan of 5-minute crafts or anything quick fix related, you’ve probably heard of a mug brownie/cake. Perfect for snacking day or night and energize us for a day’ work. This is an easy recipe to make with ingredients readily available at your pantry.

Ingredients:

  • 3 tbsp. All purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tbsp. cocoa powder/Milo (any choco powder)
  • ¼ tsp. baking powder
  • Pinch of salt in the mug

Whisk these dry ingredients well and add in three tablespoons milk and three tablespoons vegetable oil. Mix until the batter is smooth and has no lumps. Make sure you use a mug that is big enough and has someplace for the flour to rise. You can add some chocolate chips on top for some added flavor. Microwave for 90-105 seconds (depending on your microwave’s power) and let it cool for at least two minutes before you dig in!

Scrambled Eggs

Scrambled eggs are a Filipino breakfast staple and also a great way of getting our dose of protein for breakfast. For an alternative, you can go for a microwavable eggs and it only takes about two minutes to make – perfect for when you’re short on time (or the motivation to cook!)

To make this quick and easy dish, crack open an egg into a microwave-safe mug, season with salt and pepper, and beat with a fork till it’s well blended. Pop this in the microwave for about 90 seconds, taking it out midway to stir and mix. Your fluffy and soft scrambled eggs are ready.

 

TIP: When cooking in the microwave, use the right utensils for food safety

One of the most important things to keep in mind when using the microwave is only to use plates/mugs that are marked microwave safe. Although the microwave might be a handy tool, it has its cons as well. Radiations are not too good for the body, hence, prevent those with the right set of utensils, mixed with the correct temperatures and of course- only the microwaveable ingredients.

High cooking temperatures can cause certain materials to break down, or even melt, contaminating the food. Microwave-safe containers will not overheat or melt and will not be too hot to handle once they’re out of the microwave. Even then, some microwave containers will only be safe for reheating and not cooking or boiling.
