Shopping for kitchen utensils - mandoline

Kitchen gadgets are designed to make our lives easier. The working chef will appreciate having a mandoline when it comes to making our healthy Brussel sprout salad.  It cuts the preparation time and is almost effortless to use. But what if you don’t have a mandoline?

  • Use a vegetable peeler.
  • Our recipe requires the sprouts to be shaved. For that, a cheese planer will do as well. —“that thing that looks like a little spatula with a slot.” 
  • The more tedious option is to use a knife.
  • If you have a food processor, you may be in luck. Check if it has a slicer attachment. This is by far the quickest method. You’re literally a few seconds away from a bunch of sliced veggies.
