Sharing the 'cooking hack' with her 197,000 TikTok followers (you can follow her @athomewithshannon), she revealed that she separates the veg in glass jars and fills them with water, before placing them in the dishwasher.

She then puts it on a normal hot cycle, which she claims cooks the veg.

Shannon wrote: "Need a quick hack for your holiday dinner? Put your veggies in mason jars and fill with water.

"Put them in the dishwasher, run a normal cycle and instant dishwasher veggies!"

A number of confused TikTok users weren't convinced by the hack, with many pointing out that most dishwashers run for at least an hour on a hot cycle.

One said: "This doesn't even save time? A dishwasher cycle is much longer than steaming broccoli?"

Another added: "Girl boiling water in a pot doesn't take that long. What in the unseasoned..."

A third wrote: "Just because you can, and I can't stress this enough, doesn't mean you SHOULD."
