So I bought a food processor. Now what?

I am very excited that I have a new kitchen tool that I think will take my cooking to the next level.

Am excited to make soups, salsas, and protein shakes, but what else do you guys recommend that I do/don't do with this thing?

I'm thinking about making hummus. What else thats easy?

I really was first thinking about garlic oil and pesto oil to cook with. What's next?

Go on a wild cooking spree for about a month, then find a spot in your cupboard and ignore it for the next 20 years before selling it at a garage sale for $2.

Cheesecake. Make the graham ******* crust in the processor, then the filling right afterward. You don't need to clean the bowl in between.

We got one, too. I'm still trying to figure out if it does anything the Kitchen Aid, the blender, and the really nice knives don't.

Jack of all trades, master of none?

you use it a few times, then realize (unless you're regularly feeding a hoard) that the little mini chopper works just fine & is easier to clean.
As with mud, life, too, slides by.

mmmMmm hummus. Think I'm making some this weekend, I just need a red pepper as I like roasted garlic and roasted red peppers in mine.

heh -- I'm still using the food processor my department gave me for my wedding shower from the mid-80's. Runs like a champ! I don't do ice cubes and hard stuff like that in it though.

Lots of small sharp knives, rotating at high speeds, slicing stuff up... who do think will show up on this thread?

(granted, is a blender, not a FP... but you get the point)

You like spicy?

Ever tried chipotle hummus?
You now have the power, in the blink of an eye.
