I’m in love… with my food processor. We’re together almost every day, having an exhilarating time by choosing random ingredients, hitting the switch, and seeing (and eating!) the results. But our relationship wasn’t always this good…
When I first met Mr. FP, I didn’t like him at all! He was messy, he was scary, he was confusing. (Sound like any other men you know?) However, as the years have passed, I’ve grown to appreciate him a great deal– he’s so helpful in the kitchen!
One of my most recent food processor successes is something I’ve named “Awesome Aspara-dip”. If you aren’t a vegan, this dip will most assuredly NOT convince you to become one. I’ll admit, it’s not very pretty to look at. But don’t judge a dip by its cover, because this stuff tastes terrific– as a dip, as a side dish, even eaten plain, with a spoon! It’s so healthy, too.
I’m not posting a recipe, because I really do just throw a bunch of stuff in the food processor… but if you want to know how to make this dip, just email me and I’ll be happy to share.
Meanwhile, here are three more food processor ideas I’ve come up with:
1. Katie’s Nut Butter and Banana Pudding– Blend 2-3 tablespoons nut butter of choice with one banana. Eat as a pudding, or spread on bread, crackers, waffles, etc.
2. Katie’s Peanut Butter and Banana Oatmeal Fusion.
3. Little Vegan Tofu Quiche Dip– Be on the lookout for a future post with this recipe 😉
Before I sign off, here’s a bit of relationship advice for all of you out there in Blogland: Start paying more attention to your own food processors. They’re really great guys!
