Prep: A meal that’s good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. First, you need to microwave the tortillas for 1 to 2 minutes depending on how crunchy you want them to be. Mix the chicken, bell peppers, and taco seasoning in a bowl then microwave for 1 to 2 minutes until the diced bell peppers are soft.

Spread the mixture evenly on one tortilla, cover it evenly with cheese then top with the other tortilla. Pop in the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute and enjoy.

Omelet in a mug

Poached eggs

Ingredients: 1 egg, ½ cup room temperature water, salt, pepper.

Prep: Eggs are one of the healthiest and cheapest foods you can eat. To poach eggs via a microwave oven, crack the egg in a mug with ½ cup water, microwave on high power setting for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Let the egg sit in the mug for 1 minute so egg whites can firm up.

Drain the egg from the mug using a spoon or fork. Season with some ground pepper and place on top of your French toast, salad, or roasted vegetables and you’re good to go.

Bonus microwave snack recipe

Potato chips

Ingredients: 2 medium-sized potatoes, 3 tbsp olive oil, ice water, salt.

Prep: Instead of opening a bag of chips, go with this easy and simple recipe of fresh potato chips. Rinse potatoes and peel off the skin if desired. If you want to keep the skin, make sure you rinsed it thoroughly. Thinly slice the potatoes, the thinner the better.

Place the sliced potatoes in a bowl of ice water to remove the starch and create crispy chips. Dry the potato slices on a paper towel and line a microwavable plate with parchment paper. Lay the potato slices out so they aren’t touching and brush them with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Microwave on high power setting for 1 to 3 minutes on one side and another 1 to 2 minutes on the other side until golden brown. Sprinkle it with salt anew and enjoy your snack.

Dark chocolate dip

Ingredients: dark chocolate bar, fresh strawberries or bananas

Prep: If your sweet tooth is looking to be satisfied then melt a dark chocolate bar in a microwavable bowl for 1 minute or until the chocolate is completely melted. Let it cool for a while and dip your strawberry or bananas in your melted chocolate dip.

So whether you are loaded with tasks and deadlines or are in for back-to-back Zoom meetings and find yourself short on mealtime, turn to one of these microwave meal recipes to curb your hunger and fuel your body with nutritious food.

Most of these meals will take you less than 10 minutes to prepare so there’s no reason to resort to ordering fast food to get your quick fix. You can even experiment and make your recipe if you’re feeling adventurous.
