If you have recently updated your kitchen with new floors or counters, you know how great a kitchen can look. We’ve come up with a few easy tricks for you in the kitchen so that you will look as amazing in your kitchen as your kitchen looks to us!
A cheese grater can be a super handy tool in the kitchen. There are many things you can grate, other than cheese. Find out how to put this ordinary tool to good use! To make your life easier when grating food, spray the grater with cooking spray to keep foods from sticking to the tool. This allows for super easy clean up; taking the scrubbing out of the equation.
Don’t have a garlic mincer? No worries, garlic can be grated on the small side of the cheese grater. This will mince the garlic and give you more flavor. This is especially helpful when making sauces or dips that require garlic. Ginger can also be grated just like the garlic. The same goes for ginger, more flavor will come out if you grate it, opposed to chopping it.
Grate hardboiled eggs to make a super quick salad topping. Make several hard boiled eggs, grate them all and save them for a salad topping that will last a couple of days. This is a great idea if you are trying to eat more salads. Hard boiled eggs add flavor and protein to your salad.
Potatoes can be grated to make yummy hash browns. The prep time is significantly reduced by grating the potatoes, instead of chopping them. Once the grating is done all you have to do is pan fry the hash browns and add some yummy melted cheddar (which of course is delicious when grated)!
Grate tomatoes when making sauces. By doing this instead of dicing, the tomatoes will cook easier because the pieces are smaller. Just make sure to peel the tomatoes before grating.
Spices can be grated by an extra small grating tool. This will allow you to use fresh spices in your recipes. The flavor will be more apparent when using a freshly grated spice. Cinnamon sticks are perfect for grating because they are easy to hold on to while using the tool.
Make toast and grate it finely to make fresh bread crumbs. This will come in especially handy around Thanksgiving!
