Every Food Conservator Has Gotta Have One

I'm in love with my immersion blender.

She saves me. Well, she doesn't actually save me, but she saves some food from perishing, from a prolonged refrigerator death, and as a result, saves me, because I can't stand to see food die.

This afternoon, while staring down a gallon size ziploc bag holding a bulging bulk of leftover Indian spiced roasted cauliflower, I spied the half empty container of chicken stock. Now I usually prefer to make my own stock, especially since I always have veggies lingering that make for a tasty stock, but when I think soup and want it within a 1/2 hour, I resort to store-bought.

Into a pot went the stock; I added the cauliflower and let it simmer for about 20 minutes. Then, grabbing my love, I twizzled and blended until I had a deliciously thick hearty bowl of soup.

Earlier this week, she rescued broccoli, potatoes, onions, and parsley along with the ingredients for a homemade stock (celery, carrots, onions, kale). Once again, a simple combination of stock and veggie equals a perfectly textured hearty bowl of soup.

Not only is she my love. She is my savior.
