Unique Ways To Use Your Box Grater
De-stem herbs
Fresh herbs enhance whatever they are added to, but the task of removing them from their stem can be painstaking and time-consuming. There are herb strippers on the market made specifically for this task, but the larger-holed side of your box grater works just as well.
Shred coleslaw
The large-holed side of your box grater is the perfect size for shredding the cabbage, carrots, and any other veggies you like in your coleslaw. Shredding the vegetables down to size using a grater is a far more efficient and uniform method than chopping and slicing them with a knife.
Mince garlic
Your box grater has a side with holes sized in between the larger and the tiniest, perfect for breaking down garlic cloves to their most aromatic and flavorful form, and with a grater, you can easily monitor the amount you add in a quick and controlled fashion.
Crumble eggs
Hard-boiled eggs are one of the easiest food items to cook and they have many different applications. They can be diced and used for egg salad or have their yolks removed and used for deviled eggs. The easiest way to do so, predictably, is with your box grater.
Puree tomatoes
Tomato sauce is another staple best made in your own kitchen. The instruments most commonly used, however, are not always the most kitchen-friendly. Your box grater, on the other hand, will provide you with tomatoes equal parts mashed, juiced, chunked and ready to go.
