Sorrry Pacanis, missed this the first time around! I can give that a try and see how it works.

This site should get you started:

Everything You Wanted to Know About Hummus but Were Afraid to Ask

The recipe I've been using for years (learned it from a neighbor who was from Iraq) is basically the Hummus with Tahini recipe on that page except I use about twice as much tahini and EVOO as they call for. I also make a little bigger well in the center of the dip and add about 1/4 cup EVOO - and add more as you run out.

And if you like eggplant - Baba Ghanoush

I can make an entire meal out of either one of these and some pita bread ... and have!

Shred the carrots for the carrot cake.
Grind the walnuts for the carrot cake.
Shred carrots for the carrot/apple/walnut/raisin salad.
Grind up 1 lb cream cheese, shred 1 lb cheddar cheese, grind it together with a little sourcream and add garlic and spices to taste for the best spread around. Melt that for tortilla chips.
Slice lbs of onions for the french onion soup.
Grind for pesto (basil and garlic) with oil, parmesan, season.
Grind (mix) the cheesecake batter to get it perfectly smooth.
Hummus (as was mentioned), tahini (grind the seeds).
Shred up the cabbage for kimchi or saurkraut, and shred up some carrots and onions and celery to add to it, makes fast work of it.
Grind walnuts and black olives for a sandwich spread. (mom's recipe)
Another was green olives chopped with cream cheese.
Grind ham or baloney and pickles then mayo for a sandwich spread. (any cooked leftover meat make a great spread with a little mayo and pickle)
Shred fresh made soap to melt down into laundry detergent. (makes it easy to wash too )

I've used my food processor to replace my hand shredder, my mandolin in some cases, my hand mixer--though I still keep them all.
