I have become extremely dependent on several food appliances that I rarely used before I started eating a more plant based diet. Now I find myself reaching for some appliances a few times a week when they were the dusty items on the shelf two years back. Most of the items I didn’t receive until my bridal shower last October. I always had them on my wishlist but figured I would wait until I could get the exact ones I wanted when I registered. Below is a list of items that I don’t know what I would do without!
- Food Processor Cuisinart 9 Cup Food Processor– I love my food processor. I primarily use it to make hummus. It is so easy to use and for cleanup. I also use it to create nut butters such as almond, cashew and peanut. I also like to use it for homemade applesauce.
- Blender Breville Hemisphere Mini Blender– I have always used my blender for the occasional smoothie but now I use it everyday since I start my morning with my green smoothie. I don’t have a vitamix (yet) but my little breville does the trick for now. I just let it run for about 3 minutes to make sure all of veggies and fruit are completely blended. I also like to use this for salad dressing.
- Immersion Blender Cuisnart-My favorite appliance! I use this for almost everything. Cauliflower mashed potatoes, banana whips, salad dressings, all of my baking needs (as long as it doesn’t require a heavy duty mixer which in that case I use my trusty Kichenaid ) and acai bowls. Not only is it so useful but its super easy to clean and store. It also has a small price tag. They have a bunch of different extensions but I usually stick with just the standard chop extension that it came with.
So tell me, what is your favorite appliance, anything I should add to my wishlist?
