I’ve never been a huge fan of cooking dinner, but let’s face it…it needs to be done. I try to prepare quick and healthy meals for my family, but I don’t always have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen.
I was excited to try out the new Ninja Cooking System, which helps you save time and serve up easy, healthier meals, all from one convenient countertop pot. Now, it’s possible to make complete meals – layering the main course, vegetables, and pasta or rice inside the Ninja® Cooking System pot – in just 30 minutes, even from the freezer, cutting cooking times by as much as 30 to 50 percent.
Steam-Infused Roasting and Baking – Revolutionary steam roasting and baking provides quicker cooking, plus healthier and moister results. Steam-infused roasting cooks meat evenly and cuts the cooking time by up to 30 percent, keeping more natural juices in the meat while taking the bad fat out. Baked goods are more moist too, and can be prepared with up to 50 percent less fat.
Fast One-Pot Meal Making – With Triple Fusion Heat, complete meals can be made in just one single pot. Home cooks can layer meals by cooking dry pasta, veggies and meats all at the same time in the Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System. Meats cook more evenly and casseroles have a savory and crispy finish, with more crunch on the bottom and sides. Frozen seafood and other frozen items can even be prepared in 30 minutes.
SEAR-ious Slow Cooking – The Ninja Cooking System has both stovetop settings and slow cook settings which allows the home cook to use the same pot to sear and brown meats and vegetables to add more flavor to the meal. The stovetop can be used after slow cooking to deglaze sauces, and to add delicate vegetables for a perfect texture. The slow-cooker is programmable; allowing you to set the cooking time, which will automatically keep warm once cooking is complete.
I really love this cooking system! It took me awhile to choose which recipe to try first, and we decided on Upside-Down Mac & Cheese. It was easy to cook both in the stove function and then the final step in the oven function, and my family declared it a success!
Since I was so excited about the system, I decided to make my normal homemade spaghetti sauce recipe in it instead of the stove, and it worked great. I could have even started it early and used the slow cooker function to keep it warm to serve later.
I’ve been looking through the recipe book, and there are several recipes that I can’t wait to try in the Ninja.
Ninja Cooking System has offered to give one (1) lucky reader their very own Ninja Cooking System (approx. retail value $159).
