Cookbook Corner: 650 Best Food Processor Recipes - Giveaway (ends 11/15)

Friday, November 05, 2010 Posted by Rita A



If there is one kitchen appliance that I do not use often enough it is my food processor. I guess it is easier for me to chop, and dice with my knives instead. I mostly use my food processor for mincing or to make puree. Boy have I been missing out on a great way to prepare foods.

Here is a fabulous cookbook for more inspiration. 650 Best Food Processor Recipes by George Geary and Judith Finlayson. George and Judith want you to bring those food processors out of your appliance graveyard. In 650 Best Food Processor Recipes they will show you how easy it is to put that processor to work. You can make sensational delicious and foolproof dishes.
The chapters include:

Appetizers
Soups
Poultry
Meats
Fish and Seafood
Meatless Mains
Sides and Salads
plus much more.

In Appetizers there is a scrumptious Pumpkin Cream Cheese Spread which I plan to make for my Thanksgiving get together. How about Roasted Garlic and Mushroom pate? I am drooling over Santa Fe Sweet Potato Soup made with dried New Mexico chiles, sweet potatoes and corn plus a few more choice ingredients. Yum!

My guys love beef so Beef Fajitas with Guacamole or the Southwestern Brisket would satisfy them. There is even a recipe for Homemade Ketchup.

Here is a tasting of the goodness inside 650 Best Food Processor Recipes:

Old World Salsa

This salsa is a favorite to serve at a south-of-the-border party.
Makes 3 cups

3 Roma (plum) tomatoes, quartered
1⁄2 red onion, quartered
1⁄2 sweet onion, quartered
2 cloves garlic
1⁄2 green bell pepper, quartered
1⁄2 red bell pepper, quartered
4 jalapeƱo peppers, cut in half and seeded
2 tbsp coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
2 tsp freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1⁄4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1⁄4 tsp celery salt
1⁄4 tsp sea salt
1 can (8 oz/227 mL) tomato sauce

In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, process tomatoes, red onion, sweet onion, garlic, green and red bell peppers, jalapeƱos, cilantro, lime and lemon juices, black pepper, celery salt and salt for 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in tomato sauce. Let stand in a covered container in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour for flavors to develop or for up to 2 days.

Peach Mango Salsa

As well as with chips for a great-tasting dip, this sweet and fruity salsa can be used on top of fish and chicken.
Makes 2 cups

1 piece (1⁄2 inch/1 cm) fresh ginger
2 large peaches, pitted and cut into quarters
1 large mango, peeled, pitted and cut into quarters
1 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
1⁄2 tsp cayenne pepper
1⁄2 tsp salt

With a garlic press or ginger grater, press juice from ginger so you have 1⁄2 tsp (2 mL). Transfer to a bowl. In work bowl fitted with metal blade, pulse peaches and mango until chunky, 8 to 10 times. Transfer to bowl with ginger juice. Add lime juice, cayenne pepper and salt. Toss together.

With so many hundreds of recipes, I have asked for a new Food Processor as a gift. Mine is so old and I can't find some of the blades, bummer!
