The microplane- a zester, grater, shredder, whatever you prefer to call it, is perhaps one of the handiest tools for the kitchen. Its uses extend far beyond that of a traditional shredder or zester and it can create soft and fluffy pillows of cheese, citrus rinds, chocolate, and so much more.   

If you’re looking to upgrade your recipe game, here are a few dishes that the microplane absolutely shines in:

Peanut Dipping Sauce

Have you ever tried to grate ginger or garlic by hand? Yeah, rough. The microplane is amazing for shredding up fine pieces and avoiding a knife catastrophe waiting to happen. Grated ginger is what upgrades this peanut dipping sauce, perfect for an asian inspired slaw, spring rolls, or soba noodles. 

Parmesan Crisps

A super simple recipe (literally involving just parmesan and your choice of spices) that creates deliciously crunchy cheesy chips. Perfect for topping on salads or a keto substitute for crackers. 

Roasted Brussel Sprouts 

Upgrade your brussel sprouts with a hint of lemon and grated cheese. You'll be pleasantly surprised with how far these two ingredients take the whole dish!
