    Can the julienne peeler that you’ve linked be used for all the vegetables or just the carrots? Thanks x

I struggled with making this as it seemed to separate and was very liquidy, am I doing something wrong with the vegetables beforehand? should they be dried out first?

Great feature that you can click to adjust the servings-I usually do it in my head but this saves me that trouble too-I didn’t even know that was possible-thanks! Will make it for tonight.
