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.

The Medium Deep Dish


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ¼ cup (30g) diced yellow onion
  • 4 oz (115g) Italian sausage, removed from casing and broken into pieces
  • 1 medium potato (120g), cut into 1” pieces
  • 1 cup (35g) kale, thinly sliced
  • cups (350ml) chicken stock
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ cup (60ml) half and half or heavy cream


  1. Add the olive oil, garlic, onion, sausage, potatoes, and kale to the Anyday dish and stir to mix well.
  2. Cover with lid (knob lifted) and cook in the microwave for 6 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork.
  3. Add the stock, salt, oregano, and half and half and continue cooking uncovered for 6-7 minutes, or until the soup is hot.
  4. Taste and adjust seasonings. Serve warm with crusty bread!

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Add shredded chicken or cooked beans for a heartier soup.
  • Substitute kale for spinach or Swiss chard.
  • Keep it dairy free by using coconut milk or unsweetened plant base creamer instead of half and half.

Recipe notes

  • We recommend using russet or Yukon potatoes in this recipe. You can also use peeled and chunked sweet potatoes.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
