31 days of Food Processor Recipes: Day 13 • Quick and Easy Wedge Salad

To celebrate the return of the Cuisinart Trade In and Trade Up we are sharing recipes that feature the work horse of any kitchen: the Food Processor!

Some folks like to look down their nose at the humble iceberg lettuce. It has no nutritional value, they say. It’s devoid of flavor, too watery, they complain. There are more flavorful greens out there, to be sure, and plenty of them pack more vitamins and minerals. But who among the leafy can match iceberg for its crisp crunchiness? Add that to some creamy cheesy dressing, the saltiness of warmed bacon and the sting from a fresh red onion and you have a great American Classic: The Wedge!

31 days of Food Processor Recipes: Day 12 • The easiest way to make homemade Mayonnaise

To celebrate the return of the Cuisinart Trade In and Trade Up we are sharing recipes that feature the work horse of any kitchen: the Food Processor!

Mayonnaise is delicious. It’s a fact mayo-haters are often far too readily to dismiss. Why? All that store bought stuff isn’t all that great for you: lots of GMO soy and preservatives mucking up what should be a delicate emulsion of oil and eggs. Why not make it yourself, at home? It couldn’t be easier, and, even better, you can always revise the recipe slightly to fit the day’s meal: perhaps a little dill folded into the mix for a veggie sandwich, or maybe some chopped up chipotles to dip sweet potato fries in?

31 days of Food Processor Recipes: Day 10 • Cheesy Quinoa Cakes with a Roasted Garlic and Lemon Aioli

To celebrate the return of the Cuisinart Trade In and Trade Up we are sharing recipes that feature the work horse of any kitchen: the Food Processor!

Today, we are sharing Spoon Fork Bacon’s recipe for Cheesy Quinoa Cakes. It’s a great dish to haul to a party and a nice base for a quick weeknight dinner… perhaps with a simply dressed salad layered on top, or paired with a nice cut of grilled meat. We can even see these taking the place of hashbrowns at brunch. Or as a between meal snack or you could make them smaller and use them as a cracker base for a nice cocktail hour canapé.  The point is it is cheesy and garlicky and crunchy, what’s not to love?

31 days of Food Processor Recipes: Day 7 • Grilled Muhammara Kabobs

To celebrate the return of the Cuisinart Trade In and Trade Up we are sharing recipes that feature the work horse of any kitchen: the Food Processor!

Hailing from Syrian, Muhammara, shares a lot in common with other middle eastern dips like hummus and tzatziki; it is tasty as is, on veggies, spread on a sandwich, and tossed with grilled meats. What really sets this one apart, other than the earthy roasted flavor and tangy sweetness, is the amazing color. The recipe below calls for a hand blender. We think you might want use a food processor and double or triple the Muhammara recipe. Tomorrow’s lunch will thank you.

Food shouldn’t be squeezed from a tube! No offense to Mr. Dean but we think we can do better. We think our breakfast demands better! And you don’t need fancy sausage making equipment or case stuffing attachments for this brilliant breakfast sausage. Just a food processor, a pork shoulder, and maybe some homemade biscuits. You can always find use for some homemade biscuits, right?

31 days of Food Processor Recipes: Day 5 • Horseradish Salmon Burgers

To celebrate the return of the Cuisinart Trade In and Trade Up we are sharing recipes that feature the work horse of any kitchen: the Food Processor!

Dinner tonight could be this easy: throw a few things in the food processor, pulse to combine, form the resulting deliciousness into patties, grill, dress, eat. It’s that simple, really. If you REALLY wanted to send this one to the next level you might consider ditching the lettuce in favor of watercress. And though there is noting worse in this world than a over dressed burger we are feeling like a little diced roasted red pepper and sliced avocado wouldn’t hurt.
