the magic bullet

i know you've all seen the infomercial about the magic bullet. it's a great party item, and you can make virtually anything using it...and it's so easy to clean! well, i received said magic bullet as a gift and this blog will chronicle how well the bullet lives up to its reputation.

white bean sammiches






haven't used the bullet in a while, mostly due to the fact that i've been eating out a lot this month. it's just too damn hot to be in the kitchen lately.

i'm off from work today, and decided to make a yummy, healthy lunch that included using the bullet in a new way.

according to the infomercial and recipe book, the bullet is supposed to be able to handle making hummus.

i took a can of white kidney beans, rinsed and drained, and added some olive oil and salt and pepper. placed it all in the bullet and tried to pulse away.

it got stuck several times while making this mixture into a paste. i had to mix it up with a spoon in order for the beans to get evenly mashed.

i spread this mixture onto some good multigrain bread, added red onion, avocado, broccoli sprouts, and cucumber, and made a double decker sammich. delicious!

ummmm- she is vegan, actually. and if you wanted to piss money away you could even make it all organic.

If the magic bullet is not up to the task, then perhaps you need something more vigorous, like a magic artillery shell.

You might try adding a little tahini to the mix. The almond paste might thin down the mixture some and keep your bullet from misfiring.
