I got a food processor for my birthday and am so happy with it that last weekend, I decided to use it. I didn’t have many ingredients but I saw I had one sweet potato, or kumara, 😉 and a potato. I decided to try out the blade that is supposed to ‘slice food very thinly’ like a mandoline.

After twenty minutes (because I am slow like that) of trying to figure out how the parts connect, I finally managed to use the device properly. And I was ecstatic! The potatoes were super thin! I fried them in olive oil and sprinkled salt over and had them for breakfast. I’m going to buy more potatoes this weekend and experiment.

My Birthday Gift 😀


Look at how thin the slices are!


Fried in extra virgin olive oil


A sprinkling of salt and black pepper over and it makes for a tasty supper
