Immersion circulators, a boon in the kitchen. 11/19/17

Vegan Part of the Day

Today started off with the usual oatmeal, flaxseed, and blueberries. I really hope all the great benefits I’ve read about come true. When I go see my doctor in six months I would like to be slimmer with a lower blood glucose level and a better cholesterol reading.  Otherwise, it will be a lot of boring breakfasts for naught.

I am trying hard to make lunch more interesting. I bought some baked tofu and had it over brown rice with chickpeas and almost the last of our wonderful tomatoes. One minute in the microwave and lunch was ready. I will be sad when the tomatoes are gone. We’ve been spoiled. BTW this is a salad plate not a dinner plate.

Non-vegan Part of the Day

About the immersion circulator – Not only did we use the immersion circulator to cook the steak to a perfect medium rare, we took the brussel sprouts that I made yesterday and heated them up in their own bag. The meat cooked at 125F and so did the sprouts until John took out the meat for a sear on the grill. Then I bumped the water up to 140F. The sprouts came out warm and not overcooked. I think I am going to try heating some of my Thanksgiving sides this way.
