I’m pretty sure we’re all guilty of buying groceries and having some of them sit in the fridge a little too long before turning into science projects. It happens! A great way to prevent this from happening is to take those foods (before they’ve gone bad, that is) and get creative with your food processor. It’s a fun way to experiment with new recipes and flavors, while not wasting food or money.
Just toss anything you want in a food processor, add your favorite spices and oils, and voila! You have a delicious spread that can put on toast, salads, wraps, sandwiches, cucumber and other veggie slices, a chip dip, etc. Last night I realized I had more dandelion greens and cucumbers than I could eat, so I tossed them in my food processor.
I also tossed in:
- Ginger root
- Turmeric (a delicious cancer fighter too!)
- Sea salt, flax seeds, and chia seeds
OMG was it delicious! It had a meaty, hearty, and very fresh taste to it. I put it over a salad and drifted off to heaven. BONUS: All of these ingredients are PACKED with nutrients that nourish you. DOUBLE BONUS: it gives you tons of energy since it was so finely chopped that it didn’t use up much digestive energy.
