I LOVE MY 7-CUP FOOD PROCESSOR so much that I purchased (yet another) one to give away. Who’d like to win this indispensable kitchen gadget in a random drawing?Up for grabs is a brand new Cuisinart DLC-10S Pro Classic 7-Cup Food Processor. This model is much nicer than my 10-year-old (and now-discontinued) Cuisinart.
I use my food processor to achieve hundreds of delicious dishes in a fraction of the usual time. For instance:
French Onion Soup (Soupe à l’oignon gratinée). In a matter of seconds, the food processor will thinly-slice the big onions you need for this fabulous, French, slightly-boozy brew. Here’s the recipe.
Chive Pesto. Toss chives, almonds, garlic and oil into the processor, and WHAM! — you’ll have a pesto that’s so delicious you’ll probably faint. The recipe.
Mayonnaise. Give eggs, olive oil and lemon juice a spin, and 3 minutes later you’ll enjoy mayo as it was originally meant to be — creamy, dreamy…and real! Details here.
I dump butter, flour, and a bit of ice-water into the processor, and ten seconds later, I’m presented with Pate Brisee — the tenderest, flakiest pie crust in the world. The recipe.
English Cream Scones. Sure, you could mix these up by hand. But why should you? The food processor will accomplish the job before you can say “English Cream Scones.” My easy recipe.
Garlic Scape Pesto. You haven’t lived until you’ve tried this heavenly stuff. And the processor will turn it out for you in less than one minute. The recipe.
Use the processor to turn fresh or frozen strawberries into a thick puree… fold the puree into beaten egg whites… and voila! you’ve got the goods for my fail-proof Strawberry Souffle.
