7 Days of Interesting Kitchen Gadgets – Day 6: Mini Food Processor

Posted on January 29, 2011


Day 6:  Mini Food Processor (like this Cuisinart 4 cup white mini processor)

Yesterday, I blogged about how much I am enjoying our Vitamix.  Keep in mind, the Vitamix was a gift for two years’ worth of my birthdays.  Yes, I waited patiently.  If the Vitamix is just not in your budget yet, I do highly recommend a food processor or mini processor.

I still keep my mini processor, like the one picture above, on my counter top.  It is great for quickly chopping veggies, making a dip or hummus.  Since I have a little one new to solids, I use my mini at least three times a day for pureeing whatever fruits or veggies the rest of us are eating.  (I’m a big fan of homemade baby food).

Speaking of hummus, what is your favorite hummus recipe?

I am always looking for new and creative ways to make hummus.  I will be sharing my Sweet Potato Hummus that I put together on a whim during the holidays in a post soon.  And be sure to check out my friend, Jessica’s, at Growing Healthy Sprouts, hummus recipe and her funny horrible hummus story.

Stay tuned this week for my blogging marathon of more fun kitchen gadgets! And be sure to check out Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4 & Day 5!
