Having infused oil on hand is the key to making more interesting sauces, dressings, sautés, you name it. It’s also great for drizzling on dishes to finish. The microwave makes it in minutes — try it with different herb combinations to find your favorite flavors.

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

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.
