What Can You Do with a Food Processor That Is Unique and Simple?
Do you have a food processor in your house? What do you do with it? My mother has one but it is not in use. This is because she doesn’t really know what to do with it. Before I purchased mine, I had to find out how I can really utilize the machine.
The processor can be used to do more things than you can imagine. When you buy a processor and start to use it, you get to know and understand how it functions. Instead of keeping your processor, there are so many things that you can do with it.
So now what can you do with a food processor that is unique? Here are some of the unique things that you can do with your food processor:
The food processor does well in chopping large quantities. If you want to chop onions in few seconds, this can help you to save time. The only thing you can do is to peel the onions and put them in the processor. It can also chop fruits, vegetables, and nuts.
This is the only way out if you need lots of onions. The processor also works best in chopping garlic, turmeric, and ginger roots.
If the processor has good attachments, it can be used to slice cucumbers, cabbages, apples, potatoes, and any other food that needs slicing precisely and evenly. You are the one to choose the thickness or thinness you want.
Mixing and pureeing
The food processor can mix numberless things. For example, you can mix whole egg mayonnaise in moments. This can be made into tartare sauce, with cornichons, capers, and parsley. This is so amazing, you may not go back to buy from a shop again.
When making the pastry, you can use the processor to soften the fat; this is excellent instead of using your hands to rub the hard fat. Make sure, when using the processor you add water at the end to ensure consistency.
The processor can make a nice smooth puree by using butter and some crème Fraiche. This is better when serving vegetables.
Squash can be used to make a creamy pie. After cooking the squash put them in a bowl of the processor. Mix with any seasoning to add flavor. Add some oil or cream to make it loose. This can be served with dinner or breakfast.
You can grate large quantities using the food processor. A good grating disc is essential in a processor. It should have different settings. This will help you to grate vegetables and cheese.
This makes it easy to grate hard things like coconut, parmesan cheese, and pecorino. To make your work easy, just use the processor. Cut the vegetables into pieces before putting them into the tube.
I love the idea of kneading dough with your hands. But this can be hectic if you have to knead more dough. If you want to make your work much easier, use the food processor to make bread. This is incredibly easier.
This is found mostly in supermarkets. But you can make it at home using your food processor.
- All you can do is to puree the nuts
- Roast them first before pureeing
- Process them when cold. This will ensure that they don’t stick to the blade.
- Add the sweetener and let the machine stream it
- You can use honey or maple syrup. Also adding sea salt is a good idea.
Making a pie crust
You don’t have to cut butter using your hands, use the processor to perform the task. This can be used to whip the dough together. Chop small pieces of butter and put them in the processor with the flour, salt, and sugar. Make sure that the butter is evenly distributed in the flour.
Add ice water from the top to make the dough like crumbly ball. Now you can let the processor do the rest.
The things a processor can do include
- Chopping large quantities
- Making breadcrumbs
- Mixing and pureeing
- Grating cheese
If the blade of your processor wears out in time, it will probably need a new sharp blade. You can order it from any the manufacturer or any other kitchen shop.
