6 Scrumptious Meals You Can Cook in a Dishwasher (Yes, You Read That Right)

Dill Lemon Cream Salmon

It’s an oldie but a goodie. Poached salmon can be particularly tricky if you’re not closely watching the temperature. Cooking it in a dishwasher, however, is as simple as setting dishwasher to a normal 50-minute wash cycle according to this recipe the Los Angeles Times reprinted in 1970s. Before putting your fish packet onto the dishwasher rack though, you’ll want to fill the pouch full of aromatics like lemon, dill, peppercorns, and a sprig of parsley.

Boiled Vegetables Galore

Eating your vegetables is important and so Lisa Casali found a super easy way to make them. You can toss all your vegetables into vacuum-packed cooking bags to seal in flavors better than a pot of boiling water ever could. They don’t have to be just boring, bland steamed pea pods either. Casali gives a few recipes to make balsamic tinged crunchy radicchio treviso and curry seasoned baby marrows.

Dishwasher Lasagna Florentine

Tasty lasagna is still possible even if you never had an Italian grandmother to teach you to make it. You can easily assemble your stacks of pasta (preferably oven-ready lasagna noodles), ricotta cheese, mushrooms, and pre-sauteed meats into an aluminum pouch ready for a spin in your dishwasher. Set your machine on a two hour normal cycle and heated dry cycle for a deliciously fully cooked, albeit non-browned, lasagna. Even The Mythbusters and Epic Meal Time are trying it out.
