Course, now I am thinking about homemade slaw for some strange reason...

I hung around in old town on my BEEMER bike. Bought furnature and art at the mdise
mart and ate at pizza uno before it was a chain.
I often did chinatown and ate at booker in blackstone territory when it was a small store front. Great museums-- especially science and industry. Big John was built when i lived there.

A special city for sure :)

I LOOOOOVE my food processor It's a Magimix 5500. Love it love it love it.
I use it to make the crust for quiche, it's so simple and because you put cold butter in and wizz it quickly (using the sharp blade, not the dough blade mind you), you can roll it straight out and put it into the flan tin immediately (but if you live somewhere hot you may still have trouble).

I also use it to make basil pesto. You don't need a huge one to make pesto, but it doesn't matter, it just does a great job.

I could go on, but I won't bore you. But as you can see I LOVE my food processor.

Ok, I'll try. This is going from memory as the cookbook is at home and I'm at work (BTW it's nearly 1pm on a Saturday, I'm in Australia )

Aaaanyway....you put the flour (my recipe calls for 300g from memory) in the food processor, using the sharp blade, with the pinch of salt (this is for savoury of course, I suppose you might be putting sugar in for a sweet shortcrust pasty)...then you add the cold diced butter (I *think* it said 125g, not 100% sure, will have to check at home) and process it until it is blended and resembles fine bread crumbs (takes less than 30 seconds).

Then whilst it is still running, slowly trickle in the 3 - 4 tablespoons of cold water (in Australia 1Tbsp = 20mls). It will come together and form a ball within about 20 seconds, then you tip it out and roll it out on a lightly floured bench/board, and press it into the flan tin as normal.

I then prick the base all over with a fork, blind bake it with rice/baking paper for 15 minutes (moderate oven), then take the rice out and put it back in the oven for 5 minutes to crisp it. The crust is now ready to use.

You can make two large (9x5) loaves of bread. kneading time, 90 seconds!

Have you read your instruction manual? I'll bet you'll get lots of ideas from there.

I asked this in another thread, but never got answered. I am hoping you will be able to help me. I made dough in my FP with the dough blade, and it kneaded like you said in about 90 seconds, LOL.
But, it stuck like crazy to the bowl. Any trick to that so it doesn't stick?

I have the KA 14 cup and love it. Today, I made two kinds of yeast doughs and pesto in it. I use it almost every day at least once.

Hummus and baba ganoush can also be made in a food processor. I can't remember the proper spelling, but it will also do a good job on gespatcho (cold tomato soup). The longer you have a food processor, the more you will need it.
