Cooking Tool No. 1:
What’s A Mandolin?
No, we’re not talking about the string instrument.
A mandolin slicer will allow you to slice ingredients super thin. This is beneficial for people who think they don’t like vegetables. If eating raw carrots or broccoli stems feels like you’re chewing on sticks then a mandolin is for you. Thin shavings of these vegetables are more pliable, are easier to chew and digest and soak up sauces exceptionally well.
Be very careful when using the mandolin slicer. It is very effective at cutting fingers.
