My ricer is not only good to use for mashed potatoes it can be used for other vegetables and fruit as well. I decided to make some chilli carrots to go with a lovely piece of hake. Carrots is one of those vegetables that you will always find in my fridge. I use my ricer a lot and it is one of those kitchen gadgets I can highly recommend. I know that on my recommendation a few bloggers have purchased one. And they are super happy with the results. Just make sure it is sturdy.
I am a lazy cook during the week and I do not bother to peel my potatoes before cooking them. The ricer does the job of removing the skin with ease. I would do the same with carrots but my dogs love carrot peels and ends. And I do not want to deny them this treat. Raw vegetables are great for dogs and mine get to eat tomatoes, cabbage and any other crunchy vegetable they like. I give them the bits that would normally be thrown away. This way I am also reducing my wastage.
