Time saving tips

  • Use Borner mandoline slicer, it will cut prep time by 5-10 minutes, make slicing effortless, and make veggies look uniform;
  • Soak and cook chick peas in advance, divide them by 2-3 cups portions and freeze them. Cooked chick peas are way tastier than the ones from the can, and they contain no aluminium or bisphenol-A.
