For the past few months I had been toying with the idea of getting a microwave. I cook quite a lot of food and always have plenty of leftovers. Some end up in lunchboxes, others as the next meal.

Here is another week of delicious meat free inspiration. For the past 2 weeks I have been trying out this Panasonic Combination Microwave. I quickly realised that microwave technology had moved on since we last had one over ten years ago. This baby can also steam, grill, bake or even multi-task with any of these functions.
