What really impressed me was how many different blades that this food processor came with. It can do so many different things including make dough, grate, slice, blend, etc. It includes a 6, 10 and 12 cup mixing bowls, 2 Sabatier blades, a dough blade, 2 grating disks, 2 slicing disks, a blender mix attachment, an egg whisk and a spatula. I beautiful chrome color looks great in my stainless steel kitchen. I plan to keep this on display since it is so nice.
This food processor is currently on sale at Williams at Sonoma for $300-$350. Even though that may sound like a lot, for what it comes with, it is actually quite a good deal. I am beyond in love with my new food processor. I literally made my parents come over to see it because I was so excited.
Some things that I plan to make in this food processor are:
-Shredded potatoes for homemade potato pancakes
-Shredded carrots to throw in soups
-Whole wheat bread dough
-Fresh fruit sauces
As you can see, there are tons of different healthy options to make with a food processor. I believe that this is a great tool to make homemade, healthy foods. The possibilities are endless of what you can make.
Homemade Peanut ButterI have been wanting to make homemade peanut butter since I saw it on a healthy living blog years ago. Since I just got this beautiful Magimix food processor, I figured it was time to make something new to me.
1 1/2 cups peanuts (I chose Planters dry roasted, unsalted peanuts)
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon caramel sauce
(The last three ingredients are optional. I added them as I blended the peanuts to give it some extra flavor and loosen it up a bit.)
1. Place peanuts in food processor and grind.
2. After about 1 minute, peanuts will begin to change from powder to a ball in the food processor. Keep blending.
3. Add additional ingredients as desired. Blend to a desired consistency. I blended for about 3-4 minutes total.
Blended for 1 minute
After 3 minutes
