Oh it was a veritable appliance festival in my kitchen today. Really I only used two appliances but the beauty of each one of them shone through and made preparation of Everyday Chickpea Quinoa Salad from Appetite for Reduction a breeze. I used the magic rice cooker to prepare some presoaked garbanzo beans while I worked diligently in the other room. Next it was put to work making a batch of quinoa in a wink. The next player in this scene is the shiny new food processor. It whipped up the Balsamic Dressing for the salad and sliced the onion and shredded a carrot in no time flat. Served over some pre chopped romaine this was one quick dinner. It’s almost as good as having a chef in the kitchen.

Salad for dinner…this was more than just a salad; except now I have total onion breath.
