Nomi: People get really tired, really fast of salads. I do, but you can take the same things that you put into a salad and throw it in the blender and do it up, it's amazing what the addition of a tomato or slice of mango or something can do to a concoction like that and you can make yourself some really delicious things really fast. Nomi: There are only two great blenders, in my humble opinion, Kevin. One is the K-tech which is the one I do recommend for several reasons. The other is the Vita-mix. They're both fabulous blenders. I prefer the K-tech. The main reason is it's a whole horsepower stronger but there's a few others.The difference between one of these blenders and a Hamilton Beach or whatever is the difference between a Pinto and a Rolls Royce. They're both cars but need I say more? In my book, for example, I assumed everybody would have a regular blender.
They're not inexpensive. I would say to make this dish,grate the carrot, grate the parsnip, then put it in the blender. Well, one of these blenders, you throw the darn thing in whole. I throw two frozen, rock hard bananas, whole and 45 seconds later I'm eating whatever it is.
You can do with one of these blenders things you could never do any other way. I will take a couple of apples and cut them up and throw them in the blender with some cinnamon, I have to baby the blender a little because there's no liquid in there, and I can turn it into applesauce in a minute or two, because people think applesauce? Raw applesauce? No, it's completely easy and possible if you have the right equipment.Kevin: It's great for kids, too. I think the price comparison, you can tell me if I'm wrong or not, is if you break two or three $100 blenders, you can eventually, you kind of go for the bigger one. Nomi: Well, I personally have taken two, probably $30 to $50 blenders, smoking,outside to finish their smoking process in the air where I tried to make a pate or something in it. They couldn't handle it. I do understand Kevin that there are plenty of people interested in this kind of food that are never going to be able to spend $400 on a blender.
I appreciate that and that's why in my DVDs I use a regular blender. One or two hints about that, if you have an old Oster blender or you can get your hands on one and that would be like at garage sales, 40 or 50 year old blenders grab it, because they have the most amazing motor. Now, they don't compare with the Vita-mix or the K-tech. But they're still nice and strong. My first few years I was raw I had an old Oster.
Kevin: I think that people sometimes just think that the only thing you can make in a blender is a frozen drink or a yoghurt smoothie and you mentioned applesauce and then you just talked about pates. How versatile is a blender for making things? Nomi: There's a big crossover in equipment. When I make a pate I use a food processor because a blender needs a lot of liquid. The pate I like best, it's in my book, called the Sunflower Pate, and it's 3 cups of sprouted sunflower seeds and lemon juice, because that's a good preservative and some tahini and then some onion and scallion and different spices. I use it in the food processor. The secret to blending is it needs liquid. Food processing is for things that are drier. The food processor could never work with as much liquid as a blender would. It would leak all over the place.
