Save Time Cooking

A large part of saving time with cooking is about saving preparation time. However, with this great tip, cooking time is also greatly reduced, as grating vegetables reduces cooking time by up to 95%.

Use a food processor to prep up to 5 days of veggies (excluding salads.). Use grater blade for carrots, zucchini, jicima, broccoli stems, squashes, potatoes and other hard veggies. Grate large batches at one time (no need to clean processor after each vegetable), seal and store in refrigerator. Combine these veggies or cook individually in a sauté pan in minutes, adding a bit of oil or butter, garlic or lemon and salt.

Add grated vegetables to meatloaf, stews, soups, stir-fry’s, pasta sauce and more. Even squash and potatoes take only minutes to cook with this method!
