Apple, onion and herb topping!

Review : Kitchen King Pro

Before we left for our adventure, Dave saw that Juz would be missing her food processor so he got her a very special present – a Kitchen King Pro.

 

This tool is basically a hand-powered food processor.  It has super sharp blades that cut though vegetables like butter, and once you’ve made a nice salad or salsa, simply remove the blades and eat straight out of the bowl.  Juz has chopped up a variety of things like onions, carrots, broccoli, apple, chickpeas and bananas within seconds!

 

 

Want to make salsa? 

Chuck in some onion, tomatoes and coriander with cumin, lemon juice and jalapeños!

Want to make veggie patties?

Chuck your veggies in and process until fine before adding egg and seasoning.

Want to make Juz’s delicious cookie dough recipe?

Chickpeas, honey and peanut butter are no match for the Kitchen King Pro.

 

Apple, onion and herb topping!

 

The Kitchen King Pro also comes with a whisking blade accessory if you want to beat eggs or make pancakes, a vegetable slicer and an egg white separator.  The ultimate camp kitchen tool!

Cookie Dough - peanut butter

Recipe : Cookie Dough

This recipe requires one of two things – chronic elbow grease and a sturdy fork to mash and mix the ingredients together, or a food processor, electric or manual, to make light of the hard work.  Dave surprised Juz with a Kitchen King Pro on her birthday last year and this tool works wonders at chopping onions, carrots, making salsa and yummy, healthy desserts like Cookie Dough!

 

As usual, this recipe is simple, delicious, does not require any added sugar and adaptable to everyone’s tastes.

 

THE BASE

1 can chickpeas, drained

3 tbs honey, golden syrup or maple syrup.  You can use stevia if you want.

3 tbs peanut butter, smooth or crunchy

1 tsp of vanilla essence

A pinch of baking powder

 

 

Combine all the base ingredients and process until smooth like cookie dough.

 

Chickpeas are a great source of fibre and have been known to increase satiety when they’re included in your diet.  Peanut butter is a good source of protein and heart healthy fat, and is utterly delicious, while natural, unprocessed honey has a variety of health benefits, such as antibacterial and antifungal properties, phytonutrients and antioxidants

 

Now, you can eat it like this if you want, or you can put it into a pan or muffin tins and bake it.  However, you can increase the flavour sensation with these suggestions.

 

 

FLAVOUR ENHANCERS

These can be added during or after the creaming, whatever pleases you.

  • A handful of dried fruit pieces
  • Bailey’s or Kahlua – party time!
  • Choc chips – this is a great option if you plan to bake your dough
  • Cinnamon – a natural sweetener with a range of health benefits, including blood sugar control and super antioxidant powers
  • Crushed biscuit pieces
  • Crushed nut pieces
  • M&M’s
  • Overripe banana – a great way to use up squishy bananas.  This will make the mixture moister and smack you with some potassium and fibre
  • Protein powder – extra flavour and amino acids
  • Raw cacao powder – chocolate cookie dough full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals

 

Stir through and enjoy.  You can even spread it on a cracker…
