Guilt-Free Recipes from Philips Kitchen Appliances
There are still plenty of meals you can whip up at home even though your meal choices would be trimmed down for a week of fasting and abstinence. Here are some guilt-free recipes to try out using Philips kitchen appliances.
Prepare a simple pasta dish with portabello mushrooms as a healthy alternative from the usual meaty pasta. Seal in all the nutrients of all the ingredients of this pasta dish as well as every meal you wish to cook with the Philips Induction Cooker HD4932. It has 2100 W high power for fast heating and reduces 1/3 of your cooking time, resulting in more nutrients sealed in your food. It quickly starts cooking at the touch of the start key and is also extra safe for children with its cool-to-touch surface.

Another great meal to add to your list is something freshly steamed, like steamed lapu-lapu (grouper fish). Fish in itself is already a healthy and delicious meal. But for it to be steamed instead of fried only makes it even more mouth-watering and rich with nutrients.
Boost the flavor of your steamed lapu-lapu with your own combination of herbs and spices using the Philips Food Steamer HD9140. Its Flavour Booster improves steamed food with delectable herbs and spices without doing anything more than popping herbs into the booster. The steamer requires little effort to operate with its digital timer and a Keep Warm function to keep food ready for serving all the time.
