Kitchen Tip: Uses of a Veggie Peeler

For many kitchen tasks, it's handier than a knife (and because the sharp edges face inward, it's safer too).

Here are a few new uses with a veggie peeler:

  • Create elegant chocolate curls or coconut shavings to garnish cakes and other desserts.

  • Garnish your Caesar salad with wisps of Parmesan or Romano cheese. Thinly slice semi-hard cheeses, like Cheddar or Gouda, for grilled cheese sandwiches and panini.

  • Don't stop at the peel. Slice zucchini or carrots lengthwise; saute in a bit of butter till tender for a yummy side.
