As a leading brand in the microwave industry, WEILI Global is always looking for ways to make cooking more convenient and efficient. One of our favorite vegetables to cook in the microwave is broccoli – it’s quick, easy, and a great source of vitamins and minerals. In this article, we’ll show you how to steam broccoli in a microwave with the help of WEILI Global microwaves.
Why Steam Broccoli in a Microwave?
Steaming broccoli in a microwave is a great way to preserve its flavor and nutrients. Unlike boiling, steaming doesn’t leach out the water-soluble vitamins and minerals, so you end up with a more nutritious and flavorful dish. Additionally, steaming in a microwave is faster than using a stovetop method, making it a great option for busy weeknights or when you’re short on time.
Preparing the Broccoli for Steaming
To prepare broccoli for steaming in a microwave, start by washing and trimming the florets into bite-sized pieces. You can also peel the stems and slice them into thin rounds if desired. Next, place the broccoli in a microwave-safe bowl or dish and add a small amount of water (about two tablespoons per cup of broccoli). Cover the bowl with a microwave-safe lid or plastic wrap, leaving a small vent for steam to escape. At WEILI Global, our microwaves are designed with pre-set vegetable buttons that take the guesswork out of cooking time and temperature, ensuring perfectly steamed broccoli every time.

Once your broccoli is prepped and ready to go, it’s time to start steaming in your WEILI Global microwave. Here’s how:
- Place the bowl of broccoli in the center of the microwave.
- Press the pre-set vegetable button on your WEILI Global microwave (or manually set the time and power level).
- Cook the broccoli for 2-3 minutes on high or until it reaches your desired level of tenderness.
- Carefully remove the bowl from the microwave using oven mitts or a dish towel (be careful, as it will be hot!).
