Cooking Pal Miso Cod and Steamed Potatoes
We are in the middle of a kitchen renovation and have been eating out WAY too much! So when I came across Cooking Pal, I decided this was the perfect excuse to give it a try!
If you’re short on time and want a fast and effecient way to cook meals for your family, this smart cooking device has been such a game changer for me!
Now it is pricey, but it’s a one stop shop device. Meaning, you don’t need 5 different appliances to do 5 different things. This does EVERYTHING!! It cooks, weighs, emulsifies, grates, steams, chop, sautés, kneeds, whisks, boils and grinds! So it 100% takes the hassle out of cooking! This allows less time in kitchen and the tablet is preloaded with hundreds of recipes that talk to the device. So I no longer have to worry about what recipes to cook for my family.
The Cooking Pal is also incredibly easy to cleanup!! It comes with a self cleaning mode (add water and dish soap) and it cleans itself!!
Now how does this appliance work?
1) You select a recipe on the tablet. This tablet comes with the device and it’s what controls the Cooking Pal and tell it what to do. (saute, boil, chop, steam, etc)
2) From there the tablet guides you through the entire process from start to finish on how to cook the meal.
During each step, the tablet will control the appliance and tell it when to start a specific step in the recipe. Basically the machine tells you what to do and then it does the rest! To test it out, I tried this miso cod and potato recipe. The cod went in frozen (from Costco) and was done in under 20 minutes with the push of a button! Ahh-mazing!!!!
|Prep Time||5 Minutes|
|Cook Time||20 Minutes|
- Cut the baby potatoes in halves. (about 1" in size)
- Add 17 oz of water to the mixing bowl. You won't need a measuring cup. The bowl self measures and will show you the measurement on the tablet!
- Add the potatoes into the simmer basket and place inside the mixing bowl.
- Place the cod in the deeper steam tray and hit start on the tablet.
- After the machine finishes, pull out the cod and potatoes. This is where I veered from Cooking Pal's recipe. I didn't want to blend the cod into a casserole like dish, so I left the pieces whole and served with the steamed potatoes.
- Salt and pepper everything. Serve the cod with lemon and kalamato olives with the potatoes (optional).
My honest review on this piece of equipment is that I loved how everything cooks at once! You can literally have an entire meal cook at the same time with the push of a button. There is no jumping from the oven to the stovetop to properly time things. The table and the Cooking Pal do it ALL for you! So if you like home cooked meals, but hate the hassle, I can't recommend the Cooking Pal enough.
The cod turned out so good that I cannot wait to try more recipes!!
