Remember all of the errands I briefly mentioned yesterday?
FINALLY! I know it’s no food processor, but I wanted something on the less $$ side to tide me over until next year when
I hit the kitchen appliance jackpot we register for our wedding.
I can’t even TELL you how excited I was to use this baby.
Unfortunately, I worked all day (on a Saturday – boo!), so my mind was preoccupied by more pressing matters, but as soon as I was out of the hospital, my mind began racing with all the possibilities.
I guess I should probz show my day time eats (even though everything PALES in comparison to my magic bullet’s masterpiece dinner).
The only real newcomer to note is the pretzels in my year-old baggie. Today I decided to go with a dried fruit/nut/pretzel mix just for sh!ts and giggles.
These were Newman’s Own Organic Protein Pretzels (which means zippo to me, but apparently 5 g of protein per serving is noteworthy?). They were mildly salty, super thick, and had a big crunch without tasting like empty calories (you know that nothingness cardboard quality that cheapo pretzels have…staying power of a twig). I guess that’s where the protein comes in…
As for dinner, I wanted to test the waters without going too big. Sure, I have a strong background in the blender department (first job was Jamba Juice), but that doesn’t necessarily translate to the bullet. But the infomercials always made it look so easy…
Introducing home made black bean dip (a la bullet).
1/3 can black beans
2 tbsp plain greek yogurt
10 cherry tomatoes
pinch of paprika
pinch of cayenne pepper
pinch of chili powder
salt to taste
I didn’t even let it chill, I inhaled every last drop.
Raw veggies were the perfect accompaniment.
And since my first bullet recipe went so well, I went for a second just a few hours later.
Dessert with my two new lovahs, Jay Robb and the bullet, obvi.
At long last, a protein packed smoothie that gets thick and whips into a deliciously chocolate-y dessert. Heaven.
Please leave comments with all your BEST ideas for ways to use my MAGIC BULLET. I’m thinking dips and sauces and HUMMUS galore! But tofu salads, soups, etc will be welcomed with open arms, too.
