On my last business trip I intended to buy a plastic microwave-safe bowl at the adjacent supermarket, to microwave vegetables. I found some nice broccoli, but the only microwave-safe containers were too large to fit in my motel appliance. But I had an idea.
Currently I cook an ear of corn by wrapping it, unhusked, in hot wet paper toweling and microwaving it. The corn steams in its package and the result is delicious. Why not do other vegetables the same way?
I wrapped the broccoli in wet paper toweling, zapped it, and enjoyed the result. I suspect a number of other vegetables (and combinations of vegetables) will repay the same treatment.
