Simple, soulful, and slightly sweet with a touch of spice — you’ll forgive our alliterations when you’ve had a sip. (Too much? Sorry.) This is your dish for chilly fall nights or fancy-casual couch meals, or lunches that’ll make all your coworkers jealous.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.


To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

Microwave oven by power - 700w



The Medium Deep Dish


  • cups (185g) carrots, peeled and cut into ½-inch slices
  • ½ cup (60g) medium diced apple
  • ¼ cup (30g) medium diced onion
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ½ 13.5 fl oz can (200ml) coconut milk
  • 1 cup (240ml) vegetable stock
  • salt, to taste


  1. Add all ingredients except coconut milk and stock into the Anyday dish and mix to combine. Cover with the lid (knob lifted).
  2. Cook in the microwave for 8-9 minutes, or until the carrots and apple are fork-tender.
  3. Add coconut milk and stock, mixing to combine.
  4. Cover and cook for 3 minutes, or until bubbly and hot.
  5. Using an immersion or regular blender, puree the soup in batches until smooth. Serve while hot.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Try it with pear or Yukon gold potatoes instead of apples.
  • For a less rich but still decadent version, use light coconut milk.
  • In the mood for a little heat? Add chili flakes for a spicy kick.

Recipe notes

  • Freeze in our 1/2 Cup Anytime Freezer Trays, then reheat as needed.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
