This recipe is so easy and part of the sous vide bulk meal series I am working on to make life easier for myself and others. My
motto for this year is to "work smarter, not harder" and for me this is largely an attempt to streamline and automate
a lot of day-to-day tasks that take up more time than they should. Check out this recipe for
carrot apple soup

Sous vide has been around for a little while in the professional cooking sector, but it is just starting to gain traction with home cooks thanks to cheaper equipment.
There are a lot of great resources out there, but here are a few of my favorites:
