Meet the #anovafoodnerd: Liz Alstott
Liz hasn’t always been the food nerd she is today. But when her son Luke was born, she took to the kitchen to make sure he was eating nutritious and high-quality home-cooked meals. Luke is an adorable little guy coming up on his second birthday. Getting Luke to eat veggies has always been a bit of a challenge for Liz.
“He doesn’t like the soft, mushy texture and lack of flavor. He’s never been a huge fan of veggies and they’ll often end up on the floor,” Liz told me.
It wasn’t until recently that he found an appreciation for vegetables, thanks to a new way his mom started cooking them. Luke is a huge fan of asparagus, his favorite recipe? .

Cooking Sous Vide with #anovafoodnerd Liz Alstott
When I first started cooking sous vide with my Precision Cooker, I thought it was a just meat machine. I learned how to make a really impressive steak–my favorite temperature 129ºF. I finally made pork chops that didn't have the consistency of a leather shoe. Early on, I had no idea how creative I could get with my Anova. I also discovered that I could completely eliminate my trend of burning everything I put in the oven. I now have a tool that cooks food to the perfect level of doneness and texture, every time. I am now considered a great cook in my family, but I am still able to spend time with my son without being stuck in the kitchen all evening. My mother has always told me, “If you can find a way to get a toddler to eat and enjoy asparagus, you are winning the mom game.”
Sous Vide Stuffing with #anovafoodnerd Liz Alstott
My favorite thing about this stuffing recipe is the flexibility. I made it the way I like it - super moist, tons of sage-y flavor, BACON. But all that you really need is the base of the stuffing and you are good to add whatever you want to make it your own. Add carrots, add apple chunks, add nuts...whatever your heart desires. Leave out the bacon and make it vegetarian with veggie broth, broil or sauté it for a little extra time to get it super crunchy - the options are endless. The sous vide factor allows you to 1) make it ahead of time and refrigerate in the bag until the day of, 2) get a creamy, flavor-packed result, 3) save oven space for other Turkey Day menu items.
