The Pleasure of Small Appliances
Recently I turned dried garbanzos into usable chick peas using the pressure cooker. I grilled corn (wrapped in foil) on the electric grill out on the deck. I sliced red bell pepper and zucchini and zapped them in the air fryer and made farro in the rice cooker. I combined the room-temperature chick peas with the pepper, zucchini, and corn (sliced off the cob), with a tablespoon of olive oil, a tablespoon of white wine vinegar, salt, and pepper, and let them sit together in a bowl for a few hours. This salad was placed on the plate next to the farro to create a healthy and attractive meal with minimal heating up of the kitchen on a very hot day.
