Garlic & Ginger Grating Plates
A quick and easy way to produce garlic and ginger paste – the designs are cute too.
TIP: Breaking down garlic’s cell structure by grating it and then leaving for 5-10 minutes before eating or cooking allows for the production of alliicin, which is responsible for many of garlic’s health-promoting benefits.
A firm favourite, the Nutribullet is a compact yet powerful blender that doesn’t take up much space and is easy to clean.
TIP: As the NutriBullet has a smaller cup than other larger blenders, avoid overfilling it. It is better to add additional ingredients in after you’ve blended down the first lot.
