Veggie Chick’s Recommended Resources
I never thought I could love a blender as much as I love my Vitamix. It's a serious powerhouse and can handle anything you throw at it, literally. This is a staple in my kitchen.
My Kitchenaid mixer is the statement piece of my kitchen. It’s essential not just for the awesome job it does with pizza dough, mashed potatoes, bread, cookies, cakes and more- but it also looks cool.
3 Speed Hand Blender
This is the perfect solution to chopping onions or vegetables and I use it constantly. I LOVE how easy it is to use, and to clean.
Next to the Vitamix, this is the most used item in my kitchen. Use it to chop up nuts, make pestos, soups, etc.
I have a bunch of cutting boards in my kitchen. Some are basic, some are boring, some are pretty with chevron patterns, but they all basically do the same job. Get one. Or 5 like me.
Gone are the days I use a spoon to measure out cookies. I love to use this cookie scooper to properly measure each yummy cookie-to-be.
This avocado tool is a great one if you’re looking for an all purpose tool. Split, pit and slice. And then eat.
These are great for liquid measurements. I recommend getting a few of these.
Collapsible Measuring Cups
These are great for dry measurements. I love these because they are super easy to store because they take up very little space. I hang them on little hooks in my cabinets.
You gotta have a set (or 3) of measuring spoons! They are an essential part of cooking and baking.
It’s crucial that you prep and prepare food with a good sharp knife set. Just be careful!
I make a lot of Asian meals, and a wok is so great for stir fries because the heat is distributed evenly. It also holds a lot of food and perfect when I’m making food for a crowd.
Apple Corer Peeler Slicer
My mom had this when I was a kid and I thought it was the coolest thing. I remember her making apple pies and this little contraption made it so much easier to core, peel and slice the apples. And if you have a Kitchenaid mixer, you can also get one that attaches right to the mixer. Cool!
This piece of equipment is key for peeling potatoes or zucchini and that’s primarily what I use it for.
I use this peeler to peel ginger, potatoes, mangoes, you name it.
I couldn’t live without my slow cooker. If you are lazy with dinner like I sometimes am, this is a winner.
If you can add rice, add water, and press a button you can use a rice cooker.
Not only do I use this to zest a lemon or lime. I also use it to mince garlic; works like a charm! It’s one of my most used tools.
This is another necessity in my kitchen, since many of my recipes call for lemon or lime juice.
When cutting certain herbs like chives, kitchen scissors are a necessity. Some of them even have jar openers or nut crackers.
The Instant Pot is amazing for when you don't feel like putting much effort into cooking. It's so easy to use and can replace your rice cooker and slow cooker. Get one!
I really love this spiralizer attachment, which fits right onto the end of my mixer. It will also core, peel and slice your apples and it’s just a blast to use.
