View Full Version : New mandolin, any ideas?
11-14-2005, 05:09 PM
I just picked up a sweet mandolin from the specialty cooking shop in town...I'm all excited to use it for some rawsome lasagna!
Anyone else use theirs a lot or have suggestions for recipes with it?
It makes "fries" too with whatever you like. It also has a wide range of thicknesses as I specifically avoided ones with only one or two settings.
This one can make things very very thin...I'm thinking I could use them for little wraps to roll up pates and such.
Thanks for any suggestions!
well, this wouldn't utilize it to it's full potential, but I love using mine to make a cucumber, tomato, onion salad. Just slice away at aforementioned veggies, mix with oil, vinegar, a little sea salt and viola!

Slice zucchini thinly and make a lasagna.
Let us know what you do with the mandoline. I am thinking of buying one soon.

Dragggon loves ours, he uses it to cut the eggplant for eggplant bacon, to cut zucchini for chips, and yams, and sweet potatoes, all for chips.
He cuts red pepper and zucchinit and mushrooms julienne so he can put them in soups.
he uses it for anything you sliced, or julienne, or whatever, he uses it every day.
So, just leave it out on the counter, and use it and enjoy it.

I'm also thinking that it would do very well for the rawviolis....slicing the turnip etc into discs...
I do have the spiral slicer for pasta but this gives so many more slicing type options for different "noodle" shapes :D
I've lent Alissa's book and I miss it so much! Wow, it's like my raw bible. I need it for the lasagna recipe!!! I'll let you know how it turns out:>

What kind of mandolin did you purchase?
Mine is not doing so good, It is a few years old and it just isn't cutting things anymore.
I love my rosle peeler because I can replace the blade if needed. It was definately a great investment.

It's a DiMani Stainless Steel one.
I opted for paying a little more to get the durability of stainless....wow, I cut some cucumber to make little "sushis"...the degree of thinness or thickness of noodles that it can achieve is great!!!!
It was about $80 (Canadian)
