I want to cook kumera in the microwave. What's a good way to do it?

If I do it the same way as potatoes it goes very dry & I can't swallow it.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Mine do too. I gave up so will be delighted to hear if someone has mastered it.

How about mashing with garlic butter when cooked and having them with sausages and mushy peas and onion gravey - now I'm hungry.

We mash them with a bit of butter and milk and add a bit of curry powder, yum! :p

Try wrapping with microwave cling film, or even a plastic bag. Do not seal bag tight. This will retain the moisture and make it more palatable.
I could just do with a baked kumera right now, sliced open whilst hot and a big slice of cheese inserted and allowed to melt. Yummmyyyyy.

There are no bad questions only those that are not asked.

That's because microwaves are evil and should only be used to transmit communication signals! You'll all be dead by the end of your lives if you eat microwaved food! [}:)]

Microwaves are awful for cooking thinks like that, no flavour and no texture, the oven is best. I occasionally do cauli's or carrots etc in there but they are much better steamed!

In fact my microwave gets so little use I wonder if I actually need it! But how would I do microwave popcorn! ;)

Must admit I mainly use mine to put a packet of frozen meat in to thaw (not going) so the cats can't get it.

Or melt butter when baking or reheat leftovers.

I do as Spook does but add a wee bit of water and only half cook. Then finish off in the oven as normal.
