Wow your dish is cooked entirely in the microwave. I will never take cooking advice from someone who cooks with the microwave!! Reheating leftovers is what the microwave is for and even then I try not to use it. It ruins the natural taste of food, gives meats a tough rubbery texture and destroys more nutrients than any other form of cooking. If your going to try to inform people on proper cooking techniques and good recipes please educate yourself first!! But maybe if you don't have the palette to realize why you shouldn't be using a microwave in the first place then your beyond educating. This is disgraceful!!!
