Breville “Boss” Product Review and Recipe
Disclosure: This post is in partnership with Breville Canada. As always, opinions are all mine.
Recently I have had the privilege of teaming up with Breville to review their “Boss” Blender. This is a Blender and so much more. I love to cook from scratch and with this Boss Blender, I can do so much more than just make smoothies for the kids or blend up some soups. this Boss Blender makes it possible to even mill your own flour. I have never been one to step away from trying something new in the kitchen and this Boss Blender is certainly making me the Boss all over again.
Being of Italian and Macedonian descent, I love my dips. From Hummous to Babaghanoush to Tyrokefterie and taramasalata included, these are no easy task for your average blender. These dips take a lot of power and I’ve personally burnt out more than one making these fantastic Mediterranean marvels. With the use of Breville’s ProKintex Blade and Bowl technology for ultrafine particle size for less intervention, making a couple of these dips for you to try and to showcase this amazing blender is sheer genius. I chose to make two of my all-time favourite dips. The infamous Hummous and a pretty obscure but delectably delicious dip known as Tyrokefterie. Say that five times really fast.
With so many hidden features that most people would never even consider thinking of, like the “Green Smoothie” function that’s designed to blend whole fruits, veggies and ice to a perfect smoothie consistency that’s amazingly chunk free and icy cold. Or how about the incredibly powerful motor that runs this “Boss” Blender? 1500 watts of blending power at your fingertips. The list is almost endless, they even give you a spatula for extra ease of use. Be sure to check out the Breville Boss Blender Here.

I know right? Good thing it can’t drink it right? So as I was saying a little mile ago, I love my dips and I did it, I made my two greatest and fondest loves. Hummous and Tyrakefterie. Tyrakefteri what? All good guys, its the easiest and most scrumptious dips I’ve ever had. It looks just like this.
- 16 ounces good Feta Cheese (sheep and cow blend is okay but goat and sheep is better)
- 1-2 Roasted Red Peppers (hot)
- 2 medium jalapenos
- pepper to taste
- 1 tbs olive oil
I told you it was simple. combine the cheese, peppers and Jalapenos with the pepper and use the soup preset button. If you find that it is a little too pasty like, add a little juice from the peppers. You do want a thicker texture but not too dry. As with any great sauce or dip, let it sit and stew overnight in a bowl covered with saran wrap will do.
- 1 cup drained chick peas ( I used dried chick peas and cooked them before hand)
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 4 tbsp olive oil + 1 tbsp for drizzle
- 1 tbsp Hungarian Paprika
- 2 stp fresh lemon juice
So we all love eating Hummous. Think its labour intensive? Think again! With the Breville Boss Blender making this infamous dip was a breeze. With my blenders of old, getting the right texture and consistency was always a challenge. The Boss blew right through the chick peas and what an impressive job it did. A smooth and creamy Hummous was born in only a few short minutes.
Again, simple and kid friendly too! add all your ingredients less the extra tbsp of oil for drizzle and I used the “Green Smoothie” preset. With this dip it is essential to use the spatula and every so often scrape down the sides to ensure every last bit is at the same consistency. When your Hummous is at the creaminess and texture you desire, empty into a bowl and cover with saran wrap. I like to let my dips rest overnight but you can certainly dig in the second its done.
This my friends hasn’t left my countertop since I received it. I Don’t have a food Processor and I often turn to the Breville Boss as a more than adequate kitchen tool in place of. Hands down the best blender I have ever used and will continue to do so. I absolutely love this Blendeer and I guarantee you will too!
