Healthy eating today is much easier than it was a decade or two ago. A large part why is the adoption and affordability of food processors.
With a powerful quality-made food processor, you can make all sorts of yummy concoctions mixing together foods that would have taken so much effort to get right. In a food processor, everything’s dumped in and mixed. Within minutes, you’re done. Don’t believe us? Here is a preview of what can be made in a food processor with basic, run-of-the-mill ingredients you probably already have on-hand.
Homemade nut butters
There are a variety of nut butters a food processor seems to almost be created to make. An elementary peanut butter is a great practice food but you also have peanut sauce, cashew sauce, and more to dig into.
Homemade salad dressings
If you’ve always desired to make homemade dressings, don’t sit there stirring your ingredients in with a spoon. Use the food processing. You don’t even need to cut up the herbs, garlic, or anything. Just pile it in and let your food processor make a homemade salad dressing for you. Nice and smooth, it’ll come out looking perfectly blended!
Cut up veggies for salads
When you make a salad, you can cut down on your time in a big way simply by using a food processor to cut veggies. Carrots, celery, green pepper, cucumber, lettuce, and more. Put it in and let the blade do the rest. You will get absolutely beautiful looking vegetables textured just right for a salad.
If you have some salmon, partially ground beef, or another kind of meat you really want to process, you can do so in a good processor. The right blade inside will really tear apart meats, allowing you to fashion meatballs and burgers out of any meat imaginable.
Homemade pasta sauces
Who doesn’t like the convenience of an out-of-the-can pasta sauce – of course, we all do. Nothing’s tastier though than making it yourself. Pile in the ingredients to a homemade pasta sauce into a food processor and let it happen. You can customize according to taste.
If you have things like peanuts, almonds, or cashews that you want to chop in half or get down close to a dust, you can do both in a food processing. Chopping a pile of nuts used to be labour-intensive but it doesn’t have to be anymore. You can then use these in ice cream, salads, and whatever else is to your desire.
