Thank you so much for your well wishes on my guest lecture- I'm so excited! I spent hours yesterday working on my PowerPoint slides, and planning activities for the class to do. The lecture is on Wednesday at 11:00am- but I wish it was tomorrow :)
I was cooking with a friend yesterday and I started getting irritated by my lack of counter space and abundance of small kitchen appliances. I thought about putting some away in boxes but I realized that I use all of my appliances (blender, food processor, spiralizer, steamer, rice cooker...) on an almost daily basis.
They are all important in my kitchen and today I want to share some stuff that's been coming out of my little food processor!
I got this small Cuisinart processor courtesy of CSN Stores earlier this month and use it so much!
I have made Veggie Good Falafel:
I skipped the olive oil in her recipe and instead of pasta, served my sauce on a big bed of cabbage, zucchini, tomato, carrots, black beans, and lettuce! The sauce was amazing- it's a must make dish!
I've also made oreo balls twice...
and one of the latest things I've been making is...
Tropical Berry Balls
These were inspired by Allison's recipe.
In mine, I used:
1/3 cup dried berries (cranberries, blueberries, strawberries)
1/2 spear dried papaya, diced
2 TBSP cashews
1 TBSP agave nectar
1/4 cup oats
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
I pulsed all of these things in the food processor until they came together into a big mass. I rolled them into 6 balls and even rolled a few in unsweetened coconut.
Delish! Thank you for the recipe, Allison!
This is a super quick 5-minute dessert, and they make great pre-workout snacks. And- they're way cheaper than LaraBars or any other raw bar, and just as (if not more) tasty!
What is your favorite kitchen appliance?
