question of the month

Am I losing the goodness out of my veggies by cooking them in the microwave vs. steaming?

Yes, if you only use 1-2 Tbsp water in the bottom and then put a plate on top of the bowl to allow it to steam in the microwave. Same for frozen. If you use too much water it is just like boiling and that is not good.
