Book says to boil or steam veggies for puree, what about microwaving?

Can't see that this would be a problem, any thoughts?

Yes, I thought that (not about the steriliser) but that I steam our veg in a pyrex bowl with a lid and surely that's as good?

microwaving in water = boiling, more or less

is this prescriptive book by a certain AK? hmm

do whatever you like, the world won't end if it;s zapped not steamed, or even if you just hand her a bit of leftover carrot from your own plate. Weaning should be fun, not stressy smile

easiest method I've found is a little plastic tupperware tub with holes in the top, put in a bit of water, stick in various frozen veg, put in microwave for 2 mins, there, done- with no other washing up or energy used.

I use our microwave rice steamer, works fine, but as ll said, it is possible to overdo broccoli! It can get rubbery.

Actually microwaving destroys antioxidants in veg, now I'm panicking!
