I just read one of JMB’s Appetite for Construction columns (the one in the new paper T-mag). In it, he suggested for those who have a hard time fitting vegetables into their schedule, to make a “homemade V-8” by dumping all sorts of vegetables into a food processor to make a veggie shake. Has anyone tried this? A few questions…
What kinds of vegetables should I use, both for health benefits and taste benefits? I’m already thinking tomatoes, carrots, something green (maybe broccoli). What else?
Mr. Berardi mentioned adding salt, pepper, and spices. What kind of spices would I put in?
I don’t have a food processor, but I could buy one. Would a regular blender work for this?
I’d love to hear from some of the resident chefs on this one, as well as you, Mr. Berardi, if you’re out there.
