    I made a new chop today. Riced beet, riced califlower, riced butternut squash, broccoli, carrots, tri-color quinoa, jalapeños, bell peppers, and poblano peppers. Boy do the beets make it a lovely color lol!:hehe: I hope it goes over well.:fingerscrossed:

    Ooh very pretty. I like your idea of using a ricer, too. :thumbsup: Yousa pretty smart lady!


    I made borscht once from a friends' recipe & was surprised it was more orange than red. It was my first time making it so I thought I'd messed up but she said that recipe just uses more carrots than other recipes. :) So simple. I'd just assumed borscht was always red.

    I would have thought the same. We juice with beets some times and it always turns the drink red.

    It does look great! Never thought of using a ricer either. Did you taste it? Inquiring minds want to know if it's tasty! :D

    I did and it is actually one of the best ones I have made so far. All of the flavors really meld well together.

    I liked using the ricer veggies for some of the veggies. I got that idea from another post here on AA I think. It does work really well and makes it a bit quicker to whip up a chop.

    I remember my mother using a utensil that was cone shaped with tiny holes in and she would put cooked potatoes in it and mash them through to get a rice like texture. This link describes ricing vegetables a different way... I think it's a great way to feed multiple vegetables for the smaller to medium birds ( bigger birds would like it as well).

    Almost forgot the link:

    I was thinking you used a ricer like this. I thought my mothers ricer was cone shaped until I saw this one.

    I bought some of the pre-riced frozen beets, cauliflower, and butternut squash. I typically just use my food processor to chop everything up but I saw the idea of using the frozen already riced veggies in a post on here and wanted to try it.

    Our grocery store had a ton of options so I just picked a few to try. I really liked using the frozen for the beets since there was much less red mess to clean up.

    I may end up buying one of those ricers you all posted to do it myself since I really like the way the smaller veggies blend together. I always end up with a few large chunks with the food processor.

    I agree the frozen riced veggies are great. Especially to me because of so much arthritis in the hands.

    Awesome!!! :eat: The frozen riced vegetables really are great and helpful when you don’t have a ton of time to prepare chop for the littles. My birds love the sweet potato and cauliflower mix. :D
