One key for adding flavor to meals without lots of extra and calories is finding ways to infuse light flavors and a great way to do this is with a microplane. It is a perfect way to grate in lemon or lime zest, garlic, shallots, ginger, and even fresh spices like nutmeg with virtually no mess and easy clean up. The key to buying a great microplane is making sure that it is sharp enough to zest or grate almost anything, and ideally having multiple sizes of grating holes in one microplane can cut down on needing lots of different sizes.
