Besides heating milk and leftovers, what else would you do with the

microwave oven? In this issue, life times invited fan Zhihong, associate professor of food science and nutrition Engineering College of China Agricultural University, to explain some wonderful uses of microwave oven in cooking.

and

were heated by microwave before frying. When cooking fried rice, it is important to separate the rice grains. If the rice is too sticky, it can be heated in the microwave oven for 1-2 minutes at high heat, and then heated for 1-2 minutes at medium low heat. It should be noted that the cover should not be covered when heating, otherwise it is unfavorable for moisture volatilization. Before frying eggplant with

and

, heat the eggplant in microwave oven. As we all know, eggplant is a very oil-absorbing food. If you want to have a non greasy fried eggplant, please try the following methods. Wash the eggplant before frying, cut the skin into strips or pieces, and heat it in the microwave oven for 2 minutes. Then add oil to the pan and stir fry. This method is also applicable to dry fried beans.

roasted sweet potato and potato were first heated in microwave oven. Many people like to bake sweet potatoes and potatoes at home, but it takes two hours to bake in the oven, which is time-consuming and electricity consuming. Before baking, it can be put in the microwave oven for 5-6 minutes to heat the inside of sweet potato and potato, and then put it into the oven to bake for about 30 minutes, and then it will be fully cooked.

are steamed fish. After the fresh fish of less than 1 jin are washed and cleaned up, cut several small openings in the place with thick meat, put shredded scallion, ginger slices, etc., sprinkle with a little salt, put it into the microwave special lunch box, cover or cover with heat-resistant plastic film, and heat it in the microwave oven for 6-7 minutes. The fish is nutritious and delicious. Remember to make holes in the film so that the steam can be released. Finally, it should be noted that the microwave oven has high heating efficiency and is difficult to master. Because the power and function of each microwave oven are very different, so we still need to explore the heating conditions in the cooking process. After several experiments, we can find the right combination of firepower and time to make delicious dishes. ▲
