this cooking method is the worst i can possibly think of other than using individual matches. Microwave??? Nothing should EVER go in a microwave for more than 3 minutes. If it requires more than that, there is a better cooking method. 27 total min in the nuke will destroy every vitamin, mineral, and bit of protein in the whole thing. what is the point??

That's completely untrue. I used to believe the same thing only to have it debunked by experienced researchers. Look it up. Microwaving does not kill nutrients.
