We learn in life that it is important to have the right tool for the job. When focusing on plant based whole foods, there are a three tools that I would recommend you consider owning.
Tool #1 – Vitamix https://www.vitamix.com/
I have already killed one standard blender. This blender is powerful and useful for making hummus, flour from chickpeas, vegan cheese or any other meal requiring a blender. You can save a few dollars by getting a refurbished model.
Tool #2 – The Griddler https://www.cuisinart.com/products/grills/gr-4n.html
This is a 5 in 1 product. It is kind of like an electric frying pan with the added feature of a panini press. It’s easier to flip things as it doesn’t have an edge. The panini feature adds crunch to the outside of a burrito. It lists for $99. The dials come in red and black. I found one for $60 on amazon selecting the red dials.
Tool #3 – Instanpot http://instantpot.com/
It’s basically a fool proof pressure cooker. There are so many instanpot recipes on the internet. It has a following like the big green egg. I am buying mine for only one reason. Beans. You can make a serving of beans starting from a dry bean in 30 mins. Making your own beans taste better, cost less, you don’t have to rinse them and there is no risk of BPAs.
