Three more ways your microwave can help you eat healthily
Dried beans and lentils need to be soaked overnight. Got time for that? Us neither. Instead, put them in a bowl of water, blast for ten minutes on high
then leave for 30 minutes.
Get more juice from lemons and limes
by microwaving them for ten to 20 seconds on medium. The heat makes the flesh softer so they’re easier to
squeeze, while the membranes holding the juice in burst more easily.
Garlic skins can be fiddly to get off.
Place one head of garlic in the microwave for 20 seconds on medium and each clove will slide out of its skin with the gentlest of encouragement.
