I'd like to make some nice dips or soups or puddings with it but cant think of anything at the mo so could you please leave your ideas and or recipes on here please and maybe we could all have a go and feedback?? :)

Thanks in advance xx :)

I love my food processor and use it for loads of things (not cake making so much now though LOL). One of my favourites is to put the grating discs on and shred vegetables for salads and coleslaws - I would never bother if I had to do it all by hand.

grated raw carrot and raw turnip - delicious!

Food processor is a must-have in each household. I usually use it when i am making my home-made salsa. Cos i'm tired of chopping fine bits for tomato and onions. ;)

For dressing you may want to try this:

Mayonnaise
Milk
Cloves of garlic (this one you have to use the food processor)
Cheese

Best for lettuce and tomato.

homemade burgers! if you blitz the mince, onion, garlic (whatever you put in them) them they're much smoother and much nicer in my opinion :)

Tonnes of soups

Spray a baking tray with frylite so they don't stick
