There are so many different ways to eat vegetables and plant foods, and one way is to make it fun. Changing the texture of your food can make you feel like you’re eating a variety of foods. By changing the way we eat vegetables, we can also discover the many ways we can enjoy them. Potatoes, for example, are a wonderfully versatile food, and making that one potato in different ways can get us excited about the meals we eat. Using different shreds, spirals and slices, we can discover a completely different way to prepare delicious plant-based meals.
Using a grater, a mandolin, a kitchen zester or even a food processor with these attachments you can make delicious and healthy plant-based meals! Not only this, but you can use these for so many other foods! You can use it to grate cold butter into biscuits, grate toasted bread into breadcrumbs or garlic into a dipping sauce, and even use a zester to get a finer piece of chocolate on smoothies or bowls. All these beautiful textures transform the final dish and take your meal to the next level.
We also strongly recommend that you check the Food Monster App – with over 15,000 delicious recipes, it’s the largest meatless, vegan, plant-based and allergy-friendly recipe resource to help you get healthy! And don’t forget to check out our Weekly Meal Plan Archive!
