The Immersion Blender!

The immersion blender is a magical tool which gives this soup with no butter, bread or milk or cream that ‘creamy’ texture that is so well, creamy!  If you don’t have one, you can ladle the soup into a food processor to puree it, but again there is something magical about the immersion blender which transforms the texture of the soup into fooling your mouth into thinking that you are enjoying a decadent creamy soup, even though you are basically just eating a bowl of veggies!

Recipe using the Immersion Blender:  Butternut Squash Curry Soup



The Food Processor!

The food processor is another magical kitchen tool.  So many things can be made quickly with this gadget when it is ready to go just sitting on the counter.  I use it every week making things such as: hummus, salsa, dips & different types of pesto, as well as for chopping, grating, and slicing veggies like carrots.  Though one of the more expensive kitchen tools, it can be used for many things and can save you time and energy and help you quickly prepare fresh ingredients for a last minute delicious meal or snack!

Recipe using the Food Processor:  Cilantro Almond Pesto



The Mandolin Slicer

The Mandolin Slicer is another magical kitchen tool!  I used it to slice up the Radishes in this recipe.  It is a great, easy and fast way to slice up things super thin and uniformly without worrying about cutting your fingers!  I also use the Mandolin for zucchini, potatoes, mushrooms, large garlic etc.  Mine has 3 settings for different sizes and also a ‘lock’ position to keep it safe for washing and storage. 

Recipe using the Mandolin Slicer:  Broccoli Carrot Salad



The Slow Cooker

If you don’t already know, Slow Cookers are yes, magical too.  Throw a few ingredients in the pot in the morning, put it on low heat and move along with your day.  When dinner time rolls around there is something delicious and ready to eat.  Perfect for people like me, read: exhausted by 7pm!  And by the way, you can buy them for as little as $30!

Recipe using the Slow Cooker:  Korean Beef Veggie Blast!

    1. The beauty of the Slow Cooker is that you can fill it up with all sorts of ingredients in the morning, set it on low and let it cook all day while you are out working/ shopping etc. Then when you get back later your home is full of wonderful aromas and dinner is ready to serve! Super easy and great for anyone who is too tired at the end of the day to cook a healthy meal for themselves. Sure beats the drive-thru!! There are tons of Slow Cooker cookbooks out there, not to mention all the recipes you can find online. You can find all sort of cuisines: French, Italian, Mexican, Thai, Indian and of course good old fashioned America recipes (think Pulled Pork or BBQ for instance), as well as desserts & breakfasts recipes too. Try it out - you'll be happy you did!
