hey, peeps! merry christmas! i was wondering if you all could give me some quick recipes to use for my food processor. i just recently moved out of state and until i get a new dehydrator, i only have my food processor, blender and juicer. i need some quick ideas. i already do the banana ice cream and date/raisin brownies. so anything else would be awesome. i'm also gonna check the recipe section, but thought it wouldn't hurt to post here, too. :) thanks in advance!!!

You can make nut butters ... 2 cups of the nut of your choice and blend away ... you can add some oil if necessary.
Alissa's PESTO! There are two different recipes in her book. One is used in the Stuffed Mushrooms and the other with the Pesto Pasta. The one with the Stuffed Mushrooms is *rich* and the one with the Pasta has some tomatoes in it and not as much nuts. Both are good over vegetable "pasta" :D
Hummus ... there are several different varieties
Taco meat from RAWvolution ... all you have to do is grind up the walnuts :)

Shazzie's ragu sauce -
blend 2 tomatoes, 12 sundried tomatoes, 1 clove garlic, 1 apple, 1 date, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons olive oil, until smooth. Add half a bunch of fresh basil, and a couple of sprigs of fresh oregano, blend but leave flecks of herbs still visible.
I mix marinated mushrooms and pine nuts in with the sauce.
I have a spirooli that makes spaghetti out of zucchini but I can't get it to work. So I either pour over hijiki seaweed which looks like black spaghetti, and is fabulous, but may not be raw. Or I mix it with chinese-style beansprouts (the long things you buy in the shops that are used in stirfries) or chopped cauliflower.

This is something I made a lot when I was transitioning, but you might think its disgusting.
Make a sauce out of pine nuts, sundried tomatoes, fresh tomatoes, braggs, seaweed, lemon juice, garlic, oil. Pour into a bowl. Without cleaning the FP add brussel sprouts, chop into bite size pieces. Add to the bowl, mix up.

This is gorgeous, one of my favourites.

I love maraws herb cheese spread, try therawtable.com She has great recipes...also, look up Alissa's pates in her books. I like her pesto sauce which is easy, and then spiral cut some zucchini (or if you don't have a spiraller...just use a hand held veggie peeler, and keep peeling your zuc.)

I have a spirooli that makes spaghetti out of zucchini but I can't get it to work.
Hummmmmmm, I purchased a Spirooli back in September when I came across a thread about the spirooli/saladacco ... and, at the time Alissa didn't have the saladacco available.
Anyway, I finally pulled it out of the box today because I got some potatoes in my organic produce basket and I made one potato with the "chip" blade to make *curly fries* and then did another potato with the regular "slice" blade. I've got them soaking in salt water and will put them in the dehydrator before I go to bed tonight :)
It worked great for me. Did you not have it stuck on the surface well? Oh, since I did a potato instead of a zucchini maybe I can't offer any advice ... :o

It's probably just that I'm useless with machinery.
I have a saladacco as well and can only get that to make little strips out of zucchini. No spaghetti. :(

Have you tried blending banana icecream with a small handful of pecans, a pinch of salt, and some coconut oil? It really makes it more like real icecream. Also, adding frozen raspberries or blackberries or redcurrants is gorgeous. You may need to add a sweetener.

oh how could I forget!
Storm's Raw Tabouli! (Our special staple "green stuff" recipe):
* one bunch cilantro
* one bunch parsley
* one bunch green onions
* two tomatoes
* one avocado
* half a cup of raw almonds
* cold-pressed olive oil
* unrefined sea salt
* raw honey
* half a lemon
Chop up cilantro, parsley, green onions, avocados and tomatoes in a bowl. Blend almonds to a fine flour in blender and add to bowl. Add the juice of half a lemon, a tablespoon of olive oil, a tablespoon of honey, and a teaspoon of salt. Change it up each time by adding a different vegetable/herb like corn, broccoli, or fresh basil, or a different spice like Italian or Mexican seasonings. Serves 3.
I love it with basil instead of coriander.
