Update I : New Knife Skills!
Thank you for this great class and technique's Elana!!
Because I cook very often these handy tips are very helpfull to me to be more efficient in the kitchen.
I sliced, diced and julienned some of the vegetable's: Spring onion's, Carrots, Onions and Red Peppers.
What I have learned is this class:
1) Holding my knife correctly (Untill now I was doing this wrong, not anymore!)
2) Rocking, pushing and pulling motion (I was doing it the wrong way! at this point I laugh about it!)
3) Having trouble slicing through the skin of a tomato, sharpen your knife! (Definitely needs to be scharpen)
Practice makes perfect! ( I know what to do! )
Update II : Green Detox Smoothie!
I did make a green detox smoothie my way and why not use my new skills!
These are my ingredients for my green smoothie: Water, Ginger, Spinach, Cucumber, Lemon, Banana and Apple.
1: Poor 500ml water in the mixer bowl.
2: Put two hands of spinach. ( let shake for 45 seconds )
3: Take two lemons and cut them both in half, then squeeze them out.
4: Take 20 grams of ginger and then cut into fine pieces. ( let shake for 20 seconds )
5: Take one cucumber and use only 1/3 of it, then cut into pieces. ( let shake for 45 seconds )
6: Take one banana and then cut into pieces. ( let shake for 30 seconds )
7: Take two apple's and cut them in half, repeat this again! Remove the core and cut into pieces.
( let shake for 1min 30 )
Enjoy your green smoothie!
