Vitamix® machines and other professional blenders are renowned for making smoothies, but, as author Tori Ritchie shows us in this lavishly photographed cookbook, they are also great for nut milks, juices, dips, spreads, hot and cold soups, sweet and savory sauces, dressings, batters, creams, foams, and even frozen desserts. Preparing recipes in a professional blender is quick and easy: Just layer roughly chopped ingredients in the container and you're good to go. There is no need to strain puréed mixtures to help improve the texture of the dish, so you preserve maximum nutrients from ingredients. This books offers recipes for every meal of the day. For breakfast, try a Perfect Green Smoothie, Chilaquiles & Eggs with Roasted Chipotle Salsa, or Puffed Oven Pancake with Peaches. Tempting lunch choices include a Trio of Mediterranean Dips with Flatbread, Avocado Gazpacho with Spicy Bread Crumbs, and Turkey Panini with Cranberry Relish. For dinner, try Thai-Style Curried Squash Soup, Meatballs in Tomato-Cream Sauce, and Grilled Lamb Chops with Chimichurri. And for dessert, look for Silken Chocolate Mouse (which happens to be vegan), Peach-Raspberry Ice Cream, Tiramisu Semifreddo, and more. Hardcover, 96 pages.
