A garlic press is a handy tool for getting your garlic ready for soups, sauces and salad dressings. This tool eliminates the job of mincing garlic and keeps your fingers free from the lingering smell. We all love garlic, but we don’t need to wear it!
This little silicon sleeve is a new addition to my kitchen and a wonder! Simple roll a garlic clove in it with the palm of your hand to remove all of the skin.
I know what you’re thinking – that this is a lot of money to spend on a blender. And it is. But it’s worth it. Especially in vegan cooking where there is a lot of blending. I use mine nearly everyday between smoothies in the morning and vegan cheeses, vegan soups and sauces. This blender is often a 1-pot wonder, able to make an entire soup on it’s own without additional cooking.
A handheld immersion blender is a great tool to have on hand in your kitchen when your Vitamix isn’t the right solution. I use it when making pureed soups and sauces that call for preparation in a stockpot.
I resisted a tofu press for a long time, but I’ve learned that removing the water from tofu before baking it makes the differences between crispy delicious tofu and soggy tofu.
Once you start using fresh citrus juice in your recipes, you’ll never go back! I keep a small bottle of fresh squeezed lemon juice (that I get using this juicer) in my fridge. Within a week, I use it up in everything from soups to sauces to my morning tea!
A mandolin slicer is a key kitchen gadget for getting those thin zucchini slices used for making things like vegan lasagna or vegetable wrapped enchiliadas.
