Win a Russell Hobbs Desire Mini Chopper

Summer is the perfect time to pick a handful of fresh herbs or leaves ready to whizz up into a quick dressing or sauce. I’ve seen some really interesting pesto recipes recently, with walnuts in place of pine nuts or wild garlic in place of basil. Summer fruits can also easily be blitzed into a fruit coulis, or even a quick smoothie. Fresh herbs with a little vinegar and olive oil added make a quick salad dressing, too.

I have two Russell Hobbs Desire Mini Choppers (RRP £24.99) to giveaway this month. The Mini Chopper is easy to use and store and comes with a glass bowl and handy lid.

  1. Jill Freeman says

    I so often see recipes I fancy cooking for myself but getting the food processor out for quantities for one person really puts me off. This sounds like it fits the bill, esp as you mentioned pesto – my favourite sauce!

    • KAREN TAYLOR says

      Would use to grind my own spices for marinades,curries and fresh herbs for pestos and dressings……mmm bring on the summer : )

  2. frances hopkins says

    I’m not a very good cook, so I’d have to leave the deciding to the cook of the house, my partner

  3. Jean Vaughan says

    I would chop tomatoes for making my own tomato soup- using my knife is so messy and time consuming.

  4. Liz Thomas says

    Take a whole lemon and slice it thickly, remove seeds, put it in the chopper with a bit of sugar and chilli flakes to taste. Whiz thoroughly. Wonderful condiment to curries. The Russell Hobbs Desire Mini Chopper would be perfect for this!

  5. Jayne Sullivan says

    I would use it to chop up some onions – no more crying eyes. A perfect addition to my homemade pasta sauce.

  6. says

    I would probably use this for all my chopping needs just now, as I am ill and finding chopping very tiring. What I’d most like to use it for though is for grinding spices so I can make delicate curries from scratch.

  7. Alison M says

    Onions…no more crying at the sink with 3.5 yr old daughter asking “what’s the matter Mummy? Why are you sad?”

  8. Joanne Mapp says

    My Daughter won’t eat onions if she can see them, so I would use it to make the onion pieces so small, she wouldn’t notice them in her meal.

  9. LiBB says

    As a new vegan, I would love to experiment with some homemade dairy free pesto and some fresh Mexican fiery salsa. Yum!

  10. Tracey chalk says

    Onions!!!! I can cry in the next room from chopped onions! Love making homemade soup so this would be great x

  11. L Bunning says

    I would chop my home grown herbs and onions. Making a salsa would also be one of the first things I would do.

  12. Mariana Tarkulicova says

    perfect little Chopper :-) just what my kitchen needs. definately a lovely homemade coleslaw

  13. Emily Clark says

    Some homemade vegan pesto – just replace the cheese with white miso and it tastes exactly the same, just as delicious!

  14. Julia Nicholls says

    I love making pesto but I would find this a fantastic aid to making coleslaw which I make a lot but find the chopping a bit of a chore.

  15. Louise Comb says

    I would make a chopped salad with cucumber, tomatoes, onions, kidney beans and a little light dressing :)

  16. Kerrie McKay says

    I would make a pesto with items from our garden. It would chop up our herbs and garlic nicely.

  17. says

    I prefer my onions finally chopped but I can never do it by hand with a knife so this would be perfect!

    Great for homemade yummy salsa too! :)

  18. rose p says

    To make up meals for my 2 day fast(not as my husband thought macdonalds one day and burger king the next!)

  19. princesspamma says

    I would use it to make a really lovely pineapple and chilli salsa – this handy little beauty would save loads of time!

  20. Jeremy Hards says

    Carrots, Onions, Peppers and other vegies to make a nice salad. The food processor is too much agro for a meal for one person. A mini chopper would be ideal

  21. Helen S says

    The first thing I would make is homemade pesto; it livens up pan fried chicken and spread on a french stick before it goes in the oven, is a perfect alternative to garlic bread …. and no bad breath the next day either, bonus.

  22. Andrew Halliwell says

    The blackberries are beginning to form and it looks like it might be a bumper crop this year, so, blackberry smoothies…

  23. Kelly Hooper says

    Id be cheeky and use it to chop up some veggies that my son swears he doesnt like and hide it in his yorkshire pudding lol

  24. Claire says

    I’m just starting out eating healthy and aiming to lose lots of LBS!!! This would help me create flavour combos without the calories…

  25. Emma D says

    There are so many different side dishes that I would love to have a go at making. My first choice would probably be coleslaw though.

  26. Holly Boyd says

    In this weather anything cold, a smoothie would be amazing with lots of exotic fruits and perhaps the occasional vegetable.

  27. Tracey Kifford says

    Breadcrumbs – this would make it really quick to make breadcrumbs, which have a multitude of uses in so many recipes.

  28. rebecca elaine pawsey says

    cucumber and carrots as my children love snacking on them and this would be a quick way to put them into bitesize pieces.

  29. Hannah Whitling says

    Different pastes and bases for sauces to flavour food. I dont have any blenders etc so rarely make home made marinades and pastes for any meat i’m cooking, so would love to have much more flavoursome food using this.

  30. kerry sullivan says

    chillis and garlic would be great in this mini chopper – saves getting them on your hands too much

  31. Sarah Ballantyne says

    I found a great recipe for Thai Noodle Salad last week and I’d use this to make the dressing – chilli, ginger, lime juice, soy sauce and sugar. Mmmmmm…

  32. sam bailey says

    I like making home made breadcrumbs with maybe some garlic and lemon, or cajun spice thrown in so this would be ideal to mix it up

  33. zoe bryan says

    I would use this for so may thing we do lots of home cooking so it would speed up loads of things like marinades and coleslaw, chopping veg and so much more. the more time I save the more time I can spend baking with my kids

  34. Katie Harmer says

    I would definately chop up salad stuff including red cabbage and/or stir fry veg – It may save me some time!

  35. Rob Clayton says

    hmm good question. i fancy chopping walnuts/peanuts/cashew nuts and then mixing chillis and fresh tomatoes and herbs. make a hot tomato and nut marinade for some chicken for the bbq. no idea how this will turn out but i like to play in the kitchen

  36. susan willshee says

    any minute now the blackberry bushes near my house will burst into fruit – they have so many flowers on! So I’d whizz up a few blackberries and add some yoghurt. Yum1
