Recipes That Can All Be Made In The Microwave

The Good Housekeeping Institute is an organization that gives a seal of approval to housekeeping products as well as provides tried and tested methods to help with cooking. They just some good news for those of us who are strapped for time when it comes to cooking.

They just released the most surprising recipes- apparently, there are tons of foods that you’d never think you could cook well in a microwave which you totally can. The regular rules apply: you still definitely need to use a microwave safe dish. They say you can cook meals that are quick, but also don’t skimp on quality!

Let’s take a look at some of their unbelievable claims:



Take dry spaghetti and put it in a large bowl of boiling water, let it sit for a minute, and then microwave it on high for one minute. Stir it around so you get all of the noodles under the water, then cover the bowl with cling film, poke some holes in it, and then continue to microwave until the noodles are done, eight minutes later. Drain and serve! It’s that easy.



Melt 1 and 1/3 sticks of butter into a bowl by zapping it for 30-60 seconds. Add 1 cup of sugar, 3/4 cup cocoa power, and one tablespoon of vanilla extract, two eggs (mix them in well), and then finally add a cup of flour and mix everything. Put the concoction into a greased dish, and microwave for five minutes. Then enjoy your five-minute, delicious brownies!



Put your risotto rice in a bowl, and cover it with half portion of stock you normally use (and save the other half), along with some wine for good measure.

Cover the bowl and microwave for 10 minutes. Then, stir the rice, and add 1/3 of the stock you have left, and zap again for three minutes. Then add the rest of the stock along with meat or veggies (pre-cooked), and then put the rest of the stock, cook again for 7 minutes. Add cheese and enjoy!
