This baby has been on my mind for quite some time, though I must admit I was always hesitant to get one because the blade is so menacing. On cooking contests someone always manages to slice off a piece of their finger on that sucker. But it's products seem so worth it at times.
French fries. Gratin with evenly sliced potatoes. Homemade chips. French fries. I have only used it thus far for a gratin and french fries (twice...but we bake them so it is ok). I am looking forward to this summer making evenly sliced zucchini for the tarts as well as beet and parsnip baked chips. Wowee. Look out for those!

Lentils are a wonderful source of protein and are so quick to cook, they are one of our favorite pantry staples. I also had some lightlife sausage to use the rest of, and TastyKitchen had recently posted a spicy lentil sausage soup. While this soup is not spicy in the least (the hubs and I have had to tone down the acid and spice as of late), it is hearty and flavorful.
This soup was wonderful for a pre-snow storm evening. And hearty enough to even satisfy the hubs while being vegan.
