These 12 (healthy and vegan!) food processor recipes are the reason I can’t live without my favorite appliance.
If you’ve been reading this blog for long enough, you may have realized I’m obsessed with my food processor. It has permanent real estate on my kitchen counter, right next to my water pitcher – that’s how essential it is. I use it almost every time I cook and honestly feel I’d be lost without it.
A food processor is particularly transformative for a plant-based, health-conscious kitchen. It turns cashews into cheese, dried fruit into brownies, and cauliflower into rice, for Christ’s sake. If that’s not magic, I don’t know what is!
I’m a proud owner of this Cuisinart model, which has lived with me for the past seven years. It’s roomy enough for everything I make, but not giant enough to take up too much counter space (of which, in NYC, I have very little). It’s also not heavy, should you need to store it in a cabinet and pull it out as needed.
With the holidays coming up, you may find yourself asking Santa for a food processor – or gifting one to someone you love because you’re a very, very nice person. Below are 12 of my most magical vegan food processor recipes to get excited about.
