20 Microwave Recipes That Are Delicious and Nutritious (Yup!)

Evidence Based

There’s no doubt that microwaving is one of the fastest and most convenient ways to cook food.

But that expedience comes at a cost, right?

Doesn’t microwaving food strip it of all its nutrients? Doesn’t it effectively “kill” the food, leaving you with an empty shell of irradiated swill?

I mean, it’s called “nuking” your food for a reason, right?

Well, you may be surprised to learn that all that is nonsense.

Ironically, research shows that microwaved food is not only perfectly safe to eat, but can actually be more nutritious than when it’s cooked traditionally.

Yup, it turns out that “nuking” your food can be a “healthier” way to heat it up.

Let’s find out why, and then get to the recipes.

Microwaves Don’t Make Your Food Less Nutritious

The most common charge leveled against microwave cooking is it zaps most, if not all, of the nutrients in food.

Well, extensive research conducted by scientists at the University of Murcia found the exact opposite. Microwaving is actually one the best ways to preserve the nutrients in your foods, along with griddling and baking.

The exception is in the case of boiling vegetables in the microwave, which causes most of the micronutrients to leach into the water.

Furthermore, other research indicates that microwaved vegetables can be more nutritious because they’re easier to digest and absorb.

Yup, you read that right. Microwaving some foods actually makes them healthier for you.

Microwaving Doesn’t “Kill” Food

This is one of those claims that “plays well,” but doesn’t really make sense.

By the time it hits your mouth, more or less everything you eat is “dead,” regardless of how you store or cook it.

You see, biologically speaking, plants start dying the second they’re harvested, meat and animal products die soon after the animal does, and frozen foods are completely dead on arrival.

That doesn’t mean the foods aren’t healthy to eat, though.

Unless you’re talking about probiotics, there’s no evidence that eating food with more “live” cells is healthier for you (and that’s the subject for another article).

So, microwaves don’t “kill” anything but what you don’t want in your food, like bacteria.

The Radiation From Microwaves Isn’t Dangerous

Microwave marketers have had an uphill battle from the beginning.

Blasting your food with “radiation” just sounds really bad, because, well, isn’t that the stuff that makes nuclear bombs so destructive?

Well, yes, but there are many different kinds of radiation.

The kind used in microwaves is known as non-ionizing radiation, which is very different than the radiation that blighted Chernobyl and is threatening to do the same in Japan.

We don’t need to get into the technical details here, but just know that microwave radiation can generate enough heat to boil water, but not enough to break food down on a molecular level (which would be bad).

In fact, that’s how microwaves work: they heat the water in food, which turns into steam, which cooks.

They also all have a safety shield built in that keeps the radiation from “leaking out” and heating the water in your body.

So, while you probably wouldn’t enjoy eating nothing but microwaved food (many types of dishes must be cooked traditionally to turn out right), don’t be afraid to make good use of your zapper.

As you’ll see with these microwave recipes, you can use it to make all kinds of delicious stuff for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even snacks in between.

Faster Twice-Baked Potatoes

This healthy twice-baked potato recipe can be made entirely in the microwave in about 20 minutes. If you choose to use the oven, it’ll take at least an hour.

Serves 1

Homemade Microwave Mac ‘n’ Cheese

Pass up dinner in a cardboard box, and make it from scratch in the microwave. This recipe still starts with boiling the pasta, or you can microwave the macaroni in a bowl of water for about 10 to 12 minutes. The cheese sauce gets microwaved separately.

If you want to take it over the top and don’t mind turning on the oven, mix panko bread crumbs with some melted butter, then finish it under the broiler until crisped and brown.

Serves 8


16 oz. small pasta, cooked

Microwave Potato Soup

Anyone can open a can of soup and heat it up in the microwave. But did you know it’s almost as easy to make soup from scratch without the stove?

Of course this requires a few more steps than reheating a can of soup, but it’s worth taking ten minutes to cook a real meal in the microwave whether you’re at home or in the office breakroom.

Serves 1


3/4 cup water

3 Tbsp. small diced potatoes

1 Tbsp. chopped white onion

When you make corn on the cob in the microwave, it’s easier to get creative with how it’s served. This version is fancy, but it takes hardly any time to whip it up as a quick snack.

The corn only takes a few minutes to cook, and you aren’t waiting on a pot of water or grill to heat up. Microwave unshucked corn, and the husk and silk will come off easily once cooked.

Serves 4


1/4 cup (about 2 oz.) soft goat cheese, room temp.

90-Second Protein Cake

Most mug cakes have higher macros than a slice of frosted cake – and that’s plain cake without tasty toppings.

That’s because the recipes rely on a lot of butter or oil, up to three tablespoons, which is a whopping 40 grams of fat. This chocolate cake uses Cool Whip for a fat-free replacement, and it has whey protein powder to reduce the carbs.

Serves 1


1 packet granulated stevia (or sweetener of choice)

1 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

Microwave Mug Pizza

You probably think microwavable pizza has to come from a cardboard box. But when a frozen pizza is microwaved, the crust winds up being soft and kind of soggy rather than crisp.

This mug pizza isn’t reheated – even the crust at the bottom of this convenient lunch is made from scratch. Top it with pepperoni, as shown, or leftovers like roasted veggies and sautéed mushrooms.

Serves 1


3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour

Pinch of baking powder

Pinch of baking soda

Pinch of salt

3 Tbsp. milk

1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

Serve with fresh strawberries and coconut cream or Cool Whip. If you want to make a quick strawberry sauce while the cake cools, mash one berry with a teaspoon of granulated stevia, and pour that over the top.

Serves 1

This is the kind of dish you’d think would need to stew on the stove for a bit, but you can make the whole thing in the microwave.

Seasonings are an easy way to upgrade cheap canned goods, and once the lentils are done, the yogurt and almonds turn it into a full meal. Extra hungry? Enjoy the lentils with flatbread like naan, pita, or a flour tortilla.

Serves 1

Paper Bag Microwave Popcorn

Microwave popcorn is convenient, but it’s not exactly environmentally friendly. There’s the cardboard box, the plastic wrappings, and the actual popcorn bags. And all that adds up to an extra cost too.

You actually need just two things: the plain popcorn kernels and a paper bag. Fold the top down tightly, and microwave with no extra ingredients. Once it’s popped, top with butter or coconut oil, plus your favorite seasonings.

Some popular pre-workouts are all-natural. Some contain the right mix of high-quality ingredients. Some provide clinically effective doses. But only Pulse checks each of these boxes.

Pulse doesn’t just “contain natural ingredients''—every ingredient is naturally sourced from plants and animals. Pulse contains no artificial or synthetic substances of any kind.

Every serving of Pulse contains 15.1 grams of active ingredients that have been shown to be safe and effective in peer-reviewed scientific research.
