When we think of blenders, the “S” foods come to mind: soups, smoothies, shakes, and sauces. But with a high-end commercial blender like the Hamilton Beach EXPEDITOR™ Culinary Blender, you can maximize your investment by using it in a few non-traditional ways.
Pancake and Waffle Batter
No need for more dirty dishes! Speed up your breakfast service by dumping the ingredients right into the blender, and then pour the batter right onto your griddle. Never fear about flat pancakes, either. Blend in short bursts until the batter is just mixed. This ensures the gluten in the flour won’t activate, which leads to frumpy looking pancakes.
Cauliflower Pizza Crusts
For restaurants who cater to low-carb diets, cauliflower pizza crusts as currently all the rage! Why not whip up your own using the EXPEDITOR™? Simply blend cauliflower until it reaches a rice-like consistency and then saute. You’ll want to add any spices and binding agents (like egg or cheese) before you shape it into a crust and bake. Finish off the baked crust with any toppings and return it to the oven for finishing.
The chocolatey-hazelnut taste of Nutella is great, but what if you can make your own? Now that would be sweet! Check out this recipe from Bon Appetit’s blog, and you’ll be serving up tasty treats before you know it.
