It’s Fruit And Veggies – More Matters Month over in the States this week, and while it doesn’t appear to have made the journey successfully across the Atlantic, here at Kitchen Design Centre we can always get on board with the idea of healthy food and healthy living in our kitchens, It certainly did get us thinking about how to use some of our own fantastic kitchen appliances to cook some delicious meals, and we came up with more than a few examples!
At Kitchen Design Centre we’re very proud to be a Neff Master Partner. We’ve talked in detail about the achievements of this industry-leading kitchen supplier before, so it probably comes as no surprise to learn that Neff ovens are not only impressively powerful, but also versatile enough to cater to a range of cooking styles. The latest model – the 3 series – is complete with a ‘Pizza setting’. This incorporates bottom heat and a fan oven to create a more crispy base on your classic margherita pizza – ideal for all you lovers of Italian food!
It’s not just pizza that this setting can be used for, too – it’s much more than that. The pizza setting can also be used for ‘blind baking’. Sometimes known as pre-baking, this is the act of baking a pie crust of other sort of pastry without the filling, so you can fill it with whatever delicious vegetarian option you have in mind. It’s amazing if you’re cooking a vegetarian quiche for example, or even a lemon meringue. For the more culinary adventurous amongst you, it also has dough proving and bread-baking settings, too. Whatever you’ve got in mind, the raw power and beautiful design of the Neff oven can help you make it absolutely perfect before you plate up.
Induction hobs are a constant source of pride for many of our customers, as you can see from a quick glance amongst our case studies. Now, they’re made even more versatile with add-on grills; marvellous for grilling asparagus, peppers or corn-on-the-cob for an indoor BBQ-style dish. Try it for any length of time and you’ll be convinced – vegetarians can enjoy barbecues too!
And, if you’re lucky enough to own one of Neff’s Domino Hobs, you can enjoy all the benefits of a Teppanyaki add-on grill plate. Teppanyaki is a Japanese style of cooking that was popularised in the mid-twentieth century, and it’s had plenty of time to evolve and produce some mouth-watering dishes since then. The smooth grill plate lets you enjoy a wonderful vegetable stir-fry with onions, bean sprouts and peppers all cooked with a hot Asian style sauce. The hob itself is designed to be intuitive, efficient and easy to clean. Trust us; it’s an absolute dream to have in your kitchen.
We hope this post has given you some inspiration to cook delicious vegetarian meals in your kitchen. Even if it’s not generally your thing, maybe give it a go – you might be pleasantly surprised at the results! These are just a few examples of some of the top-of-the-range appliances we have here at Kitchen Design Centre. If you’re curious to see them in action – and we don’t blame you – why not pop into any one of our designer showrooms in Manchester, Colne or Blackburn, where one of our talented designers will be happy to show you round.
