Save time cooking with these useful tips!

Here’s a perfect example of a recipe where I saved myself 15 minutes prep time by using my food processor.


This tip is exceptionally useful if you don’t know the correct (and safe) way to chop vegetables.

1.  In a food processor add fresh (Mirepoix) and garlic:

  • 2 lbs of Carrots
  • 2 lbs of Onions
  • 2 lbs of Celery
  • 1/2 lb of Garlic

2.  Pulse repeatedly until finely chopped.  You can store the Mirepoix in the fridge until needed (usually lasts about 7-10 days no problem).

USEFUL TIP:  Add 1/4 cup of salt to help preserve!

3.  In a large stock pot sear 2 chicken thighs, breasts and legs.  I love to use my LeCreuset for this one.

4.  Once seared, add the Mirepoix and garlic mix to the stock pot and stir. 

5.  (Optional)  Add 2 cups rice, barley or lentils until cooked. Chop and add some green onions or parsley to plate and taste.
