NuWave PIC Recipes | A Healthier Way to Cook?
The NuWave PIC claims that its technology will make healthier and tastier foods. This is true for the most part. If you deep fry chicken using the NuWave PIC it isn’t going to somehow make it better for you. I want to share what they mean when they say that the NuWave PIC is a healthier way to cook food as well as share with you some NuWave PIC recipes.
The NuWave PIC Manual and Cookbook is a fantastic booklet of important information regarding the NuWave PIC that should be read before it is operated. In this booklet you will learn exactly how the NuWave PIC works and why it is so much better than using a regular stovetop to cook on. Throughout the NuWave PIC recipes it gives tips and nutrition facts that are very insightful and help you to prepare healthier, nutrient-dense meals. The NuWave PIC Manual and Cookbook are available in PDF form on the Official NuWave PIC Website if you want to check it.
As you will see in the NuWave PIC Manual and Cookbook it instructs you on the right temperature and setting to cook certain foods on. The tips it gives in the NuWave PIC recipes section also teach you how to retain nutrients by slightly cooking foods differently than you normally would. These two things combined are how NuWave PIC can create healthier and tastier foods.
Here are a few of the NuWave PIC recipes that I use for my cooking classes and that are a favorite in my family.
2 pounds ground beef
1 cup chopped yellow onion
1 cup chopped celery
2 tablespoons chopped garlic

1. In large stock pot, cook ground beef and 1 tablespoon chili seasoning on Medium High (375°F).

Roasted Red Pepper Sauce over Tortellini
2 (9-ounce) packages cheese or meat tortellini
4 red peppers, roasted
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup onion, small diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh thyme
1 tablespoon fresh oregano
2 teaspoons sugar

4. Sauté onion and garlic until fragrant and tender.
5. Add pureed pepper, thyme, oregano, and sugar.
6. Cook and stir until heated through.

Tip: If you don’t have freshly roasted red peppers, substitute with 2 jars of roasted red peppers. If you don’t have fresh thyme, substitute with 1 teaspoon dried. If you don’t have fresh oregano, substitute with ½ teaspoon dried.
Did you notice that in the NuWave PIC recipes it instructs you on the exact temperature to cook things at during specific times in the process? I love that! Recipes will tell you to turn it to medium-high heat or low, which is probably a different temperature on every stovetop. The NuWave PIC recipes teach you how to use it so when you start using your own recipes you know exactly what to do.
I hope you can see that the NuWave PIC has so many advantages from cooking to health. It can’t think of a single disadvantage it has. I think the NuWave PIC should be in every home as a stovetop replacement.
