    Just got a food processor- what should I make?

    Shop Now
    My mom just surprised me by giving me a little Cusinart food processor that she found on sale. It's probably not that powerful, but I'd like to try to make something tasty with it! Any suggestions? I was thinking guacamole and almond butter, but I'd love some good recipes for other things that fit in with the primal way of eating.

    Liver pate from the PB cookbook. Don't have it in front of me, but I think you take half an onion and 2 carrots chopped small, saute them till soft in lots of bacon fat or butter. Add 1lb liver, herbs. Cook till done, stir in 2 eggs and briefly cook till eggs are set, then puree in the food processor. Awfully good and a great use of a food processor.

    Primal since July 2010...skinniest I've ever been and the least stressed about food

    What capacity?
    Try soups, mincing meat and onion into patties/meatballs, you could try mayo?

    I've been wanting to try that cauliflower "rice" from the cookbook too. Gotta find our food processor first though.

    I used mine tonight to grind some meat for burgers. They were delicious. I've also used it to make baba ganoush, coconut butter, and cream of greens soup (recipe from Primal Blueprint cookbook).

    My fave uses of food processor are:
    * freshly ground meat
    * liver pate
    * cauliflower rice
    * jerk style spice paste for Jamaican beef or chicken
    * last but not least, banana no-ice-cream!

    Chocolate avocado pudding! There are a bunch of recipes floating around using various proportions of avocado, coconut milk, cocoa, and sweetener. Finger licking good. (I use my fingers to get every last molecule out of the blender.)
