View Full Version : food processor only recipes
01-28-2007, 11:07 AM
I am eagerly (and quite impatiently :p ) awaiting the arrival of alissa's book!
But in the mean time, does anyone have any good dinner-type recipes that i can make using only a food processor? My dear fiance' (who is getting me an excalibur for valentines day.....god bless him!! :D ) has decided to jump on the raw bandwagon with me (And I'm pretty sure it was RP's brownies that convinced him! :p)
anways....he's a real 'hearty meal' kind of guy, and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas they could share that would tide us over until we get the dehydrator.

DH loved this:
by Leslie Oakes
3 ripe avocados
1 lg. onion
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 1/2 tsp cumin
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup sun dried tomatoes, soaked and chopped
2-3 chopped jalapenos
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
romaine or leaf lettuce
Cut the avocado into chunks, and pour lemon juice over it. Chop onion in food processor, then add the rest of the ingredients and process untill smooth and creamy.
Spoon some of the mixture into a lettuce leaf and wrap around mixture. I promise, this tastes like a taco!
You can add more or less of the jalapenos if you wish, the dish is quite spicy, but VERY good!

No prob. Though I have to admit it doesn't taste like them to me - but it's delicious! =)

Oh Beckla...this recipe sounds wonderful...the avocados cut in chunks with lemon...do you add those to the food processor,too, or are they added to the mixture afterwards...????
I can't wait to try this ...Elaine

I just put it all together in the food processor. Brought it once as a dip to a party and they all devoured it.
Grin - I'm actually going to make this right now!

This is my favorite recipe of any I've ever tried, it looks a bit intimidating but it's actually easy
Young Coconut Pad Thai
One cup each, julliened:
granny smith apple, skin on
1/2 cup each, julliened:
red bell pepper
3 cups, julliened:
young thai coconut (about 3 coconuts)
I used the food processor for all of that except for the apple and zucchini.
Put that all in a big bowl and add this sauce:
Pad Thai Sauce
2 Tbsp tamarind juice
1.5 Tbsp maple syrup
1.5 Tbsp nama shoyu (raw soy sauce)
1.5 Tbsp minced garlic
1.5 tsp minced serrano chili
1 Tbsp virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp celtic sea salt
Blend in Blender until smooth.
Mix that whole mess up really good, then put a handful on a plate or in a bowl. Use this almond chili sause to liberally garnish :
Almond Chili Sauce:
1/2 cup raw almond butter
1 Tbsp minced peeled fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic
1 thai dragon chili (remove the seeds unless you want to burn your lips off)
2 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1 Tbsp nama shoyu
1/4 cup filtered water, if needed, to thin
Celtic sea salt and fresh gound pepper, to taste (I didn't need it)
You can also garnish with some more nama shoyu and sesame oil, and also with spicy cashews.
1 cup raw cashews, soaked for 12 hours in filtered water, then drained
1 Tbsp maple sugar
1.5 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp celtic sea salt
1 tsp cayenne pepper
Toss to coat, then dehydrate at 105 for 24 hours on a non-stick drying sheet.

I meant it - I ran off and made some tacos. I'll post a pic in the "photos only" thread. :)
This chili is delicious!!! It calls for some dehydrating but you dont have to. I also omit the ginger and sometimes use green onions instead of leek. It is the best chili ever. Enjoy!!
