Re: let me ask my silly question of the day

my silly/wise  answer would be do not use microwave and let the soup take its time and you too (youtu-be lol ) when I make polenta it takes 40 mins, I decide that I follow it and that it's our time together, you cannot be against and in a hurry with something good you are going to eat, too much philosophy eh? for working people but a soup is not a panino, if you have not time make yourself that otherwise honour a soup with the time it needs even if reheated

cuoco Roberto thaught me that and I agree

Re: let me ask my silly question of the day

I have to admit that I have occasionally popped a bowl of soup into the microwave , but most f he time I reheat the soup in the saucepan , so Grandmadamada , I am delighted to know that I am honouring the soup before I eat it ! big_smile

Re: let me ask my silly question of the day

I have the same philosophy about taking the time to honour food, but I don't think there is anything inherently dishonourable about a microwave.  Be it a  fire, stovetop element, gas ring ,oven,microwave or steamer, all are simply a means to transfer energy.  Using a microwave simply because it is fast , without thought to how it affects quality , is what gives them a bad name.  On the other hand if you understand its properties and use it as such, it can be  a great choice to use in some cases, as this link talks about
