The humble colander can do more than drain pasta. Repurpose this functional kitchen stalwart! Here are seven clever things you can accomplish with a colander that you had no idea you could do.
1. Mash avocados for speedy guacamole: Press peeled and pitted avocados through the holes into a bowl. Mix with fresh lime juice, spicy chile peppers and cilantro for a super-quick and tasty guacamole.
2. Make mimosa eggs: Push hard-boiled eggs through the colander. Sprinkle on top of asparagus for a classic side dish, or on bagels and lox for a sandwich upgrade.
