Throw a can or two of beans in a food processor, add garlic, salt, pepper, maybe some fresh herbs and drizzle in some olive oil as the processor is running. The options to make this dip your own are endless, you can add any bean, from black beans to red beans to lentils to chickpeas. Most beans are high in fibre, meaning they will help with fullness as well as digestion.
Chopped, Ground Nuts and Nut Butters
Forget chopping nuts by hand – when you want a few cups of finely-chopped nuts for a dessert recipe, take out the food processor. Chop nuts into large or small pieces or keep the motor running a little more past the floury stage, you’ll eventually have homemade nut butter!
Mayonnaise – Garlic or Chilli
Put egg yolk, mustard, salt, pepper and lemon juice or vinegar and let the Brought to you by PANASONIC machine run. Add oil in a slow drizzle. Once it comes together, taste and adjust seasoning. Add 2 to 8 cloves of garlic to make garlic mayonnaise. Or 1 to 2 dried chillies for chilli mayonnaise.
Coleslaw, Salad and Hash Browns
Most processors come with a slicing and shredding blade. This tears through hard cheeses and is excellent for shredding vegetables like potatoes for hash browns, cabbage and carrots for coleslaw, and zucchini and carrots for baked goods and salads.
Chop raw meat into medium-sized chunks and place in the freezer until firm. Pulse the partially frozen meat in the processor bowl until you reach the consistency you want. Be careful not to process for too long, or you’ll end up with meat paste. Excellent for when you want to make meatballs for a party.
