Using a v slicer??

I have a kitchen appliance called a Borner v slicer youtube.com/watch?v=IhM_9hz... It basically easily cuts up all kind of vegetables either into thin slices or into julienne strips - like this seriouseats.com/recipes/ima...

I have found many webpages about how to use it - but what to do with the resultant sliced vegetable , not so much. The pic above is a coleslaw salad. I have stir fried the mixed Julienne strips and then poured egg over it in a frying pan - to make a kind of vegetable omellette. But looking for other ideas.

Hi Bazza1234

This recipe looks quite nice - it's called 'Spicy Peanut Quinoa Salad' and uses Julienned Carrots as part of it:

Thanks for that - but most of the recipes I have found have been salads :( - really looking for cooked recipes.

Hi Bazza1234

I've had a look around - and I agree with you, there don't seem to be many suggestions of how to use your Julienned veggies - I was thinking that maybe a lovely Frittata might be a good idea - you could layer one up with your Julienned veggies and either potato (if you like that) or sliced aubergine or pasta sheets - so you could have either Frittata, or even a Veggie Lasagne or one containing pasta.

I used to make a meal where I layered some potato, with various sliced tomatoes and red peppers and some cheese in the oven, on a baking sheet, and drizzled olive oil and baked it - that was very delicious - and I could imagine it would be nicer with thinner slices - and that your ability to Jullienne - you'd be able to try something like that out?

I hope you'll let us know what you end up cooking.

I'll keep an eye out incase I spot any other meals or suggestions.

Just looked up what a Frittatta is :) It is basically what I called a Vegie Omelette in my OP :) I like this v-slicer because you can use it on whatever vegies and combination thereof that you have to hand

Maybe there's only a few possibilities - i.e. limited recipes - I think they would be lovely with some ginger flavours throughout - maybe stir-frying in soy sauce and ginger. :-)

I use it to slice zucchini, toss in olive oil garlic and a little red pepper; then roast in the oven until crisp. Use like potato chips for dipping. Google zucchini chips for an exact recipe.

Looks like a mandoline to me. They are very useful, but I've noticed it takes a fair amount of force to make them work properly!

The mandoline and Borner v-slicer are very similar. I "think" the Borner may be the original.
