HOUSTON, Aug. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Top chefs and foodies have elevated veggies with creative recipes that leverage their unique fresh tastes and endless possibilities. Here are tips and tools for turning veggies into the star of the meal.
Keep a nutmeg mill next to your salt and pepper, to add personality and flavor to carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, cabbage and squash – as well as fresh fruits, egg dishes, desserts and more. Made in France, Peugeot Nutmeg Mills feature a stainless blade/grinder mechanism and a strong claw to reveal nutmeg taste.
For refreshing vegetable soups and sauces, use the Küchenprofi Vegetable Sieve/Food Mill. This dishwasher-safe, stainless-steel tool features a large crank handle and is easy to use. It can also be used for creamy mashed potatoes or for quickly making fresh, delicious baby food from scratch.
The Kyocera 3-Piece Knife Set features Kyocera's proprietary ceramic blades that are ideal for fresh vegetables and fruits. Unlike metal blades, they never alter the taste, smell or appearance of food. In addition to unparalleled purity, they hold their edge up to 10 times longer than other professional knives.
Peel and core tomatoes effortlessly with the Kuhn Rikon Piranha Tomato Set. It features a super-sharp, serrated stainless steel blade, with an ergonomic non-slip rubber handle that works in the right or left hand. The cleverly attached huller precisely removes the tomato core with less waste than a knife. Ideal for prepping tomatoes for soups, sauces, or canning, or making stuffed tomatoes.
Make a big batch of homemade soup, stock, sauce, vegetable chili and more with the Tramontina 18/10 Stainless Steel 16-Quart Stockpot. This durable pan features a tri-ply base, excellent heat conductivity, ergonomic soft-grip handles, and a clear glass lid for monitoring cooking progress. It works on all stovetops, including induction.
For another frosty take on veggies, chill out with a Green Refresher Detox Slushy made with cucumber and kale using the Zoku Slush & Shake Maker. It makes single-serve slushies and more, on the countertop in as little as seven minutes. Simply freeze the inner core, place it in the protective sleeve, add chilled liquid ingredients, and then scrape and stir with the included spoon. For more recipes, visit www.zokuhome.com/blog.
