Here’s what you need to do:

Green beans and green asparagus

  • Start with the vegetables: put the sliced green beans or green asparagus in the glass jar.
  • Then fill the pot to half with water.
  • Season the green beans by adding two lemon slices, along with some salt and pepper.
  • To season the green asparagus add some pepper, salt, a sprig of rosemary and a knob of butter.
  • Close the glass jar tightly and set aside for a while.

Chicken breast and salmon

  • For the chicken breast you also use a glass jar. Place pieces of chicken breast at the bottom of the glass jar, until about a quarter of the jar is filled.
  • Add a generous dash of white wine so that the chicken breasts rise just above the white wine.
  • Place a bunch of tomatoes on the fillets and add some pepper, salt and a sprig of rosemary. Put the lid on and set aside.
  • For the salmon, tear off a piece of aluminum foil, make sure the matte side is on top. Place the piece of salmon fillet in the middle of the foil.
  • Season the salmon with some salt, pepper, lemon and some fresh dill.
  • Fold the aluminum foil closed so that a closed package is created.

Now put all the glass jars and the package with the salmon in the top drawer of the dishwasher. Run the dishwasher once on the normal program, without adding a dishwasher tablet. Afterwards, remove the pots and the package from the dishwasher and serve all vegetables, chicken breast and salmon on a plate. Enjoy your meal!
