Trying to incorporate more vegetables into your meals this year? Two of our favorite attachments for vegetable prep are being featured this month. First up is the blender with this roasted eggplant and red pepper sauce. Sauce is a very familiar and easy food to use to introduce new or more vegetables into your life, especially if you are also cooking for kids. This one goes well with pasta, as a dipping sauce for bread, or a sauce for meat.
Our first of the month posts are usually for blog subscribers only, but with all the upheaval in the world right now, we’re trying to do any little thing we can to help our fellow bakers and cooks out. This pesto recipe utilizes the blender attachment for the Ankarsrum mixer and gives lots of substitutes for ways to make pesto with what you might have on hand now.
Continuing on with the food holiday theme this month, and tipping my hat to National Hamburger Day on July 28th. How do you make a really great burger? Grind your own meat. How do you make it taste even better? Make your own hamburger buns. And how do you really take it over the top? Fill it with a little homemade pimento cheese and slather some of that delicious southern spread on the bun as well. That’s right, multiple recipes in this post for the ultimate summer grilling sandwich.
