Say Goodbye to Sad Office Meals With These Recipes

There's nothing like a hot meal in the middle of a busy day!

There's nothing more disappointing than a cold, sad lunch in the middle of a work day. If you’re lucky enough to have an office pantry with a microwave oven, then you better maximize its use. Though, we must note that not all kinds of food are recommended to be heated in a microwave oven. You can turn bread, breaded food and crispy fried delights into a soggy or rubbery mess. Instead, find out the recipes that are heated best in a microwave oven: 




1 Mini Quiche

You can make a delicious quiche on Sunday and freeze it for baon for the whole week! Thanks to the gooey cheese, your quiche will stay wonderfully moist. 

How to reheat quiche: First, opt for a crustless quiche because crusts don’t do well in the microwave oven. Then, simply heat on high for 2-4 minutes.


These mini versions of your fave quiche make it easy to bring to the office as breakfast or as a snack!





2 Barbecue Chicken Fried Rice

This fried rice recipe utilizes your leftovers without missing a beat on flavor.

How to heat rice meals: Sprinkle water over rice so that it retains moisture. 


For baon-worthy fried rice, mix in your fave barbecue chicken!



3 Chicken and Chorizo Soup Recipe

You might think that soups aren’t a filling enough meal, but this scrumptious, creamy recipe has all the filling protein you need. 


How to heat soups and chowders: After heating on high for 1 minute, take it out and stir. Heat again for a minute or two, depending on how hot you want to go. Microwave ovens don’t heat evenly so stirring helps distribute the heat.


This creamy soup is both hearty and healthy.




4 Chicken Bolognese Lasagna


What’s not to love about lasagna? It’s pasta designed for a perfect bite each time!

How to heat lasagna: You want to make sure that the whole thing is heated through, including its cold core. To find out if you’ve heated it long enough, pierce the center of your lasagna with a fork and hold there for 5 seconds. Take out and feel if the tines are hot. If not, burst for 30 seconds and try again.
