Paleo / Primal / Bacon / CleanEats Lifestyle
I was always a fan of using a knife to chop vegetables but chopping and dicing a ton of veggies for a recipe can be tedious thats where the food processor comes in handy. The processor I use is a Black and Decker 8-cup model(found here). It is a great bargain at under $30. I have put it through some pretty vigorous chopping and it has held up nicely.
I mainly use it for chopping onions, bell peppers, and carrots for my meatloaf or meatball recipes. Once you chop it, it pulls a lot of the water out to not make your meatloaf or meatballs soggy. After chopping the veggies, I pour the water out and give it a quick sauté in a pan to get rid of any excess moisture. I also use it for making nut-butters. So far I have made almond butter and pecan butter. Both came out great, it just takes a little time.
