You can use the steel blade to "mince" meat (similar to ground) or make pie crusts, or use the other blades to slice, shred, or grate. Some have dough mixing attachments ... don't know what FP you have. It should have come with a book giving you some ideas beyond shredding cabbage.

There are FP Cookbooks like The Food Processor Bible (my favoriate is A Mostly French FP Cookbook - don't think it's in print anymore) and there are FP recipes online.

Ooooh, I recently got a 14 cup food processor too, slowpoke. Some of the things I use it for is slicing potatoes for making mashed potatoes or potatoes au gratin. The even slices makes them cook more evenly. I shred whole bags of carrots for salads - they last in a tupperware container with a little lemon juice for about a week. Also slicing cucumbers, celery and other veggies. Also making my own breadcrumbs. That's all I can think of but you'll get lots of suggestions here. (ChefJune is the queen of the food processor!)

Just got my KA 14 cup as well. I do have the dough blade, two chopping blades, two slicing blades, a shredding blade, two bowl inserts, and a juicer.
I actually spend some days just thinking of ways to use it for what I am cooking, LOL.

Good ideas

I have a meat grinder and a smaller FP that has recipes etc.

I was wondering what a 14 cup something recipe would be.
I intend to use it to try and make a proper slurry so i can make hot dogs.
I have failed at that in the past

The two big things I want to try in mine are a real creamed soup, like butternut squash (now I can make it nice and creamy); also fruit smoothies and such.
Our blender is broken, so instead of getting a new one, I figured I would get a FP and do everything the blender does and more. I also am thinking of taking the apples in the fridge and running them thru the juicer, maybe make some apple cider or apple juice.

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