Giveaway: Cuisinart

Cuisinart FP-12DC

Today I am giving away a brand new food processor from Cuisinart.  The 12-Cup Food Processor from the Cuisinart Elite Collection™ to be exact.  This is not the Cuisinart I have in my kitchen.  It is in fact, better than the one I have in my kitchen.  I have had my Cuisinart since before my children were born, and my older son is almost 13.

I am very attached to my Cuisinart food processor.  In fact, the Cuisinart and Vita-Mix are my 2 favorite kitchen appliances.  When people ask me which one to buy, I tell them both because the food processor and the high powered blender have completely different functions.  The food processor is great for making pesto, various batters and doughs and for also pulverizing fish, chicken and other meats.  The high powered blender is great for making sauces, smoothies and dressings –or more wet type foods that need to be emulsified and well pureed.

Here are some of my favorite gluten free recipes I’ve posted that use a food processor:

I also have a section of my website listing ALL of my recipes that use a food processor.  Check it out:
gluten free food processor recipes.

To be entered to win the Cuisinart food processor, just leave a comment (before Sunday, April 3rd at midnight) mentioning what your favorite recipe using a food processor is or what you would make if you had one.

*The winner will picked by random. This contest is limited to United States residents only

Update: this giveaway is now over and the winner was M Sieu!

  1. I absolutely love your mustard lime chicken! So tasty and always a hit with whoever I cook it for!

    I also love to use my food processor to make homemade Larabars which are always a hit at my Crossfit gym…gotta love Paleo! :)

  2. Lauren

    My favorite recipe is Elana’s bindi bars! What a hit.

    • Peggy Primm

      I would love a food processor to make your biscotte rescipe. I am just beginning to add foods into my diet after two years on the GAPS diet. I have your cookbook but prefer to use the blog because it focuses on what can be eaten, not on what to avoid.


  3. Dairy-free pesto!

    • Janne

      My daughter has to eat dairy-free and loves pesto. Do you have a good recipe for DF pesto? :)

  4. Joanne Napoli

    There are two things I make in my food processor that are my favorites: The first is a pistachio parsley pesto that is delicious. And the other is gazpacho — Yum! So refreshing and good int he summer months.

  5. Linda

    I would love to have a food processor like that…cool! I would make nut butters…love the Chocolate Hazelnut Spread!

  6. Lee

    Every year I have lots of basil in my garden and if I won the food processor, I would make large batches of fresh pesto so that I could give some away to friends. Right now, I use a small grinder that would be tedious to use for making large batches. Thanks!

  7. Stephanie Mckenzie @ readingyourlips.blogspot.com

    The Double chocolate walnut brownies, oh yeah baby! :)

  8. Janne

    Oh my gosh! I have been researching and comparing food processors, trying to find the perfect one, the past few weeks! I planted a lot of herbs this Spring and can’t wait to make my own pesto and salsa! Even if I don’t win, at least I have a strong recommendation to go by now. :)

  9. Danielle P

    I love your pesto recipe! I put it on top of pork chops, yum!!!

  10. My favorite recipe of yours is the cashew cream. My next favorite would be a coconut curry from scratch.

  11. I was going to say pesto, but in the spirit of the season, I’m going to say charoset.

  12. Petra

    The chocolate hazelnut cream!

  13. Aziza

    My favorite recipe is the soup, especially the split peas soup.
    in case I win this cuisine art food processor, I will use it for everything including making bread and Chermoula( Moroccan marinade).

    I hope I can win :-)

  14. Paulina

    Hi! Ooh! How fun! My fave recipe with a food processor is a raw kew lime pie with just 5 ingredients and major deliciousness!!!!!

  15. Christine Saunders @ girlywedding.com

    I use my itty bitty tiny Cuisinart food processor to make your date pecan apple muffins. The ones from your book. I love using apples as part of the batter and to sweeten. Really good.

  16. I don’t have a food processor, but if I did, I’d make your Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies…they look delish! I’d be thrilled to win the Cuisinart giveaway…here’s hoping!

  17. Laura

    If I had this food processor, I would make HUMMUS. Every.Single.Day!

  18. Karen

    If I had a food processor, I would make the jelly-filled donuts hands down. Thanks Elana!

  19. Tricia Bostrom

    Sweet Potato Hummus
    Sweet Potato Hummis

    2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced  (about 1 lb. sweet potatoes, in U. S. stores orange-fleshed sweet potatoes are often called yams or sweet yams)
    1 can garbanzo beans (15.5 oz), rinsed until no foam appears and then drained well
    1/4 C fresh squeezed lemon juice
    1/4 C tahini sauce
    2 T extra virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling on top of hummus
    2 tsp. ground cumin
    1/2 tsp. minced garlic
    salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
    water for thinning, 2-4 T
    1/2 tsp. paprika or Sumac for garnish (optional)

    Peel sweet potatoes and cut into small cubes.  Place in microwave-safe bowl, cover with vented lid or cling wrap, and microwave on high until sweet potatoes are soft.  (About 10-12 minutes for me, but microwave power can vary, so check a few times, being careful not to burn yourself.)

    While sweet potatoes cook, drain garbanzo beans into a colander placed in the sink and rinse with cold water until no more foam appears.  Let garbanzos drain.

    Put cooked sweet potatoes, garbanzo beans, lemon juice, tahini, 2 T olive oil, ground cumin, garlic, salt, and pepper into food processor bowl, with processor fitted with steel blade.  Process until the mixture is fairly smooth, about 2 minutes, scraping down the sides of bowl a few times.  If the mixture seems too thick, thin with a few tablespoons of water until it is the consistency you want.  Taste for seasoning and add more salt and/or pepper if desired.
    Makes about 4 cups.

  20. Kylah Elofson

    I would love to win this! I keep telling the hubby we need to set aside some $ to buy one. If I had one I’d use it for veggies so I could “hide” them in my kids meals!

  21. Valerie

    I just made your strawberry ice cream, I don’t have a Vitamix so I used my food processor, delish!!!

  22. Kristin

    I’m new to the almond flour world and absolutely love your book! I really enjoy the scones, parmesan crackers and sandwich bread. Such a great resource.

  23. Karissa Rogers

    I want a food processor so I can make all your healthy recipes!! Help me make that happen :)

  24. CAtherine Rutter @ kitchen-rx.com

    I love making different mixed nut butters in the food processor-almonds, walnuts, cashews, macadamias, pecans, sunflower seeds. And also many dips and spreads.

  25. Angela W

    Very cool! I’d use it to make pesto!

  26. I would make chicken liver Pate actually, mmmm! and Pinenut Pesto! and Houmus! Everything and anything! :-)))))

  27. Emily

    I am absolutely addicted to your double chocolate walnut brownies! And my husband loves the mustard lime chicken…I can’t make it often enough. Thank you so much for all the fabulous recipes!!

  28. Shanti

    Elana, your website has been my go to site ever since our son Henry was diagnosed with autism. He is on the SCD but cannot eat nuts so we’ve been making all of your recipes with raw pumpkin seeds that I pulverize in my old beat up food processor. Thank you for sharing all of your recipes, we are HUGE fans in this house.

  29. Wanda Starr

    I LOVE making the mashed cauliflour as a side dish in my little food processor.

  30. Angalee R

    I would try your Mustard Lime Chicken. I am new to your site and am absolutely loving it!! I have a whole list of your recipes that I would like to try where a food processor would be so handy!

  31. Kathy Trumbauer

    I make your Chocolate Eepresso power bars constantly in large batches. My family loves them and they are a staple for my husband. I would love any of your power bar recipes. Thank you.

  32. Laura

    I would make homemade GF bread, every day!

  33. Anita Galaviz

    If I had a Cuisinart food processor I would make homemade bread and homemade honey/nut spread to go on top of that fresh bread.

  34. crystal

    I am so glad to have found your cookbooks and website! I don’t make all of your thing because I don’t have a food processor. This would be awesome. Thanks for the chance to win!

  35. Christina

    Carrot banana muffins are the best! They’re a great grab-n-go breakfast. Definitely need a food processor to grind up those dates! I feel like my food processor can barely handle it sometimes lol! I’ve made two batches this week and I have to ration them out to my boyfriend so he doesn’t eat them all before I get a chance! :)

  36. maria

    I just discovered your site and think it is awsome. I can’t wait to try some of your recipes!

  37. Stacey

    I love making pizza dough in food processors. I look forward to making pesto in one.

  38. Lynda Bond

    I have four boys to cook for! I’m always in the kitchen…could defiantly use a processor. :)

  39. Desiree Rinza

    I would learn to make bread! Make fresh soy milk!

  40. Xochitl

    It will be Double Chocolate Walnut brownies.

  41. I’d like to try pesto, or your sesame dip. And a food processor would make cauliflower rice much less messy!

  42. I keep my food processor on the counter and use it virtually every day. Often more than once. I am hard pressed to pick one fave recipe…but here’s one I use frequently:

    Courtesy of Andrea from phytofoods.blogspot.com

    It’s a sweet potato or winter squash breakfast pudding. (I almost named her grain free breakfast porridge, but I use the miniprep for that one).

    add baked sweet potato, coconut milk, cinnamon, vanilla creme stevia and a dash of salt. process till smooth and creamy. DEE-Lish and healthy!


  43. Angel Harris

    I would love to win this! I use a itty-bitty processor to make my Salsa Verde. But, because it is so small, I have to make it it in 1/2 cup batches and it takes me forever to get it finished. This one would definitely make that job so much easier and quicker.

  44. I love making all sorts of pesto. My recent favorite used arugula in place of the basil.

  45. Jena

    If I had a food processor I would use it to make your Fig Newtons! I loved this snack as a child, but cannot eat the ones from the store. It would be great to be able to enjoy a fig newton or two, or four without the guilt or the stomach pain. Please help bring fig newtons back into my life! :)

  46. Shelly Kendrick

    I would love a food processor to make my own homemade tomato soup, salsa, and my children’s favorite: spaghetti sauce from scratch! And, I’d love to try out some of your recipes!

  47. Alison

    My husband and I absolutely LOVE the chicken pot pie receipe from your cookbook!

    I would use the food processor to make homemade Larabars…i broke my last one processing dates because it was not powerful enough to handle the sticky stinkers! :)

  48. Sally

    Pesto! :)

  49. Danielle Zollitsch

    My favorite is a complete toss-up. Apple sauce is a staple that I must have and stuffed mushrooms are to die for. Those are my favorite!

  50. Beth

    My food processor would be very busy making gazpacho. There are so many varieties to try!

  51. Kristine

    Mostly I would use it to make almond flour, which right now I use a coffee grinder! Considering I have to make your simple gluten free bread A LOT, it sure would be great if I could have a REAL food processor! Thanks!

  52. Tanya ~ The Chatty Mom @ thechattymom.com

    I love making my grandmother’s Kranskaker…raw almonds have to be ground down really fine to make it, so this is perfect!

  53. April L.

    I love the food processor for all kinds of things (I currently have a little Cuisinart Mini-Prep), but I’m currently pregnant and would love to have one for making baby food!

  54. My favorite thing to make is pesto…I can use any leafy greens or herbs I have hanging out in the fridge, and the resulting pesto is so versatile I can eat it all week without having the same thing twice. My (non-cuisinart) food processor broke a few weeks ago, so I could really use a new one!!

  55. Kate

    Elana you are awesome!!! I make my own fermented apples, veggies and sauerkraut. This would make it so much easier to shred and make large batches of these! I could name about 100 other recipes I would use it for!! I would love this new kitchen appliance!

  56. I, too, use food processor daily. Today, I made pea pesto, fish cakes (mashed fish in food processor) and healthy truffles (processed nuts and dried fruit to make a paste). Thank you for this great opportunity.

  57. Leah Bernhardt

    If I had a food processor, I would make all of your stuff! I can’t just pick one favorite!!

  58. don’t have a food processor but it’s the one kitchen appliance I want more than anything else. Would use it to make pesto! mmmmm

  59. I would love to make some fresh salsa and pesto in this beauty!

  60. Jelly donut cupcakes? Yes, please!

  61. Charlotte Campanella

    My food processor has just died from over use! I use it for so many things, but my favorite is thing to make is ‘Campanella Slime’! This is a marinade/salad dressing/sandwich spread made from fresh herbs, olive oil, agave, rice vinegar and seasoning. It is a special staple in the Campanella family.

  62. Emily

    Mashed cauliflower has been a favorite, but I also like using my food processor to make pumpkin pie.

  63. I would love a food processor so I could make hummus. I go through roasted garlic hummus like it’s my job.

  64. Leslie Hoffmeister

    We love your pumpkin bars! I must have two dozen cans of organic pumpkin that I purchased while it was readily available so that we could enjoy your bars all year long!

  65. I have never owned a food processor. It’s not that I don’t want one, because I do! I would make date bars to start, but there are so many things you can use a food processor for.

  66. If I had one of these fancy dancies, I’d totally make oober healthy smoothies for myself and kiddos EVERY DAY! I’d call it their “treat” for the day ;)

  67. Katie O’Dea-Horne

    My food processor that I have had since 1994 is dying and this would be a much welcomed help since our family has just adapted a all natural fresh ingredient diet and well as the Gluten Free. I love to make Hummus, Salsa, and Guacamole in my food processor.

  68. Ruthie Selch

    I agree with your thoughts on the Vita-Mix appliance – it’s awesome. I do not own a Cuisinart Food Processor and it would make a nice addition.

  69. Elizabeth Unterman @ elizabethunterman.com

    I would love a Cuisinart to make all of Elena’s recipes especially the crackers! Right now I use my Grandma’s ancient food processer that only chops 1 cup at a time!

  70. Elise (Healing Cuisine) @ healingcuisinebyelise.com

    Fav thing to make in a food processor is raw nut and seed protein bars. Don’t own a food processor so this would be a huge blessing. Moved away from mom (across country to be exact) whose food processor I used to borrow often.

  71. I would love to have a food processor again. I’d use it to make wonderful homemade falafels.

  72. Sarah

    I have never had a food processor, but I would love to make mashed cauliflower in it! So much easier than in a blender (which I now have to use.)

  73. Sarah @ Real Food Outlaws @ realfoodoutlaws.blogspot.com

    My favorite thing to make in my rickety old food processor is pesto. I would so love a new one!!!

  74. Nora

    Carrot cake!!

  75. Elaine

    This is a great machine.

  76. KRIS

    Love the pesto!!!

  77. I love, love, LOVE to make all kinds of pesto or hummus with a food processor. Unfortunately my food processor bit the dust and I haven’t been able to make those things much lately. A new one would be nice! :)

  78. Laurie Griffin

    If I had one of these, I’d love to use it to make almond crackers and nut butters. Homemade applesauce would be fun to try, too!

  79. Joelle

    My favorite uses for my 23 yr old food processor that no longer likes to chop nuts well, are shredding cabbage or lettuce, and making “Larabars”….which is why it doesn’t work so well anymore. Thanks for the chance to win a new one!

  80. suzanne bolling @ theconciergemom.com

    I love making an ugly pecan salad dressing- but you need a food processor for it for sure. this is an incredible giveaway! thanks

  81. Michele Ritan

    I use the grater blade on my very old, barely functional food processor (are you feeling sorry for me yet?) to grate cauliflower for gluten free “rice.” I hope I win a new one!

  82. I love making raw truffles and using the processor to grind up my walnuts,pecans, dates before they are dipped in cocoa powder.

  83. Tracy Haughton

    When I make risotta with mushrooms and sausage, I use my (ancient 20+ year old) Cuisineart to cut the mushrooms so small my daughter doesn’t recognize them–she loves this dish and eats it with gusto though claims to not like mushrooms.

  84. Alisa Fleming @ alisacooks.com

    Hmmm, definitely date bars, like homemade Larabars. Or maybe my roasted eggplant soup. Both are awesome!

  85. Lauren

    cilantro dip, peanut butter cookies and yummy carrot cake are my favs.

  86. Debbie Waid

    I love to make granola in my mini processor and would love to have a full size one!

  87. Nicole J

    I don’t have a food processor, but would love to have one! I would make the Chocolate Espresso Power Bars to snack on if I had one!!

  88. Allison

    I would LOVE a food processor! I would definitely use it to make hummus. I love hummus.

  89. The mustard lime chicken recipe sounds delicious! I would use the food processor for everything! That and the kitchenaid mixer were the only things on our wedding registry that we didn’t get that I really wanted :[

  90. Danielle

    If I had a food processor, I would make baby food for my baby and Salsa. I used to have one before it broke and my favorite recipe was the Salsa. It was so fresh and tasted better, in my opinion, to store bought! Fresh is best!!!

  91. Shelly

    If I had one, I’d use it to make pesto!

  92. melissa silvers @ srirachaheart.tumblr.com

    I don’t currently have a food processor, so I’m sure I’d find a million uses for it — but since summer is right around the corner, I imagine I’ll be hitting up the farmers market for yummy tomatoes and onions. I’m sure I’d make salsa one of my top uses for the summer!

  93. OMG! I want this food processor. I have been planning to get one for the past few months but this is better than the one I can afford. I can’t wait to try Betsy’s Multi-Grain Crackers – I need something crunchy to eat!! http://www.elanaspantry.com/betsys-multi-grain-crackers/ Thanks so much for doing the giveaway!

  94. kat

    i love a good food processor! mine sadly died on the weekend, but i just got a vita mix recently and i am loving it!

  95. Rob

    Bindi bars, pesto, anything I have trouble with right now because I don’t have a food processor

  96. My favorite recipe to make in a food processor is peanut butter coconut bars (http://nourishedandnurtured.blogspot.com/2011/01/peanut-butter-bars-gaps-friendly-grain.html)

    I would love to have such a large capacity cuisinart!

  97. Kristen K

    I’ve never had a food processor but have tons of things I could use one for. I want to make Cauli Rice!! :)

  98. I would make my new favorite pesto–cilantro pesto.

    And lots of salsa!

  99. Tiffany

    I love making hummus in my food processor, but I do need a new one as mine does not work quite right!

  100. Michelle

    I am going to be growing a lot of basil this year (can never have too much of a good thing!) so I’d use a food processor to make pesto!

  101. I would love to win this Cuisinart. I would make hummus immediately!

  102. Kat Barcus

    I would love to try all your processor recipes with the new Cusinart processor!

  103. Oh my, I would love to make the Chocolate Hazelnut Spread! I make nearly everything from scratch, and love cooking, yet i have never had a food processor. It’s one of those things I think of needing many times while in the kitchen, but have not yet saved up enough money to buy one. I would LOVE to have this food processor!!!

  104. Melissa Grimes

    If I had a food processor I would make spreads and dips. I have a friend who says the food processor makes the best guacomole. I love your foods and thank you for all the great recipes you come up with. I’ve turned so many people on to your site!

  105. Caroline @ chocolate and carrots @ chocolateandcarrots.com

    I love making hummus and pie crusts! :-D Yum!

  106. Julie Henson

    I love making pesto and grinding nuts for gluten free crusts. I also make raw marinara that is wonderful.

  107. SuzisSweetz

    Chocolate espresso power bars.. Mmm I havent made them yet but I want to soo bad

  108. Marcia Renert

    Pesto! LOVE the way my apartment smells of fresh basil!

  109. Beverly Bauer

    My current food processor is not long for this world and I’ll really miss it for many, many things. Love making my own salad dressings, but my favorite is probably mashed cauliflower.

    Thanks, Beverly Bauer

  110. Cindy MacMillan

    If I had a brand new cuisinart, I would make my kids home made raw granola bars with organic mejool dates, almond butter, ground sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, gogi berries, cacao powder, and ground flax seeds.

  111. Nana Rogers

    Wow! What a cool giveaway…
    I don’t own a food processor yet, but I want to try all your recipes. Hard to pick which one I’d want to make first. Probably be the Chocolate Hazelnut Spread for my Grandson. He love Nutella and Peanut butter sandwiches. He calls it peanut butter and chocolate peanut butter. It would be great to have the means to make more wonderful dishes that you have shared.

    (((Hugs))) April

  112. Wow, what an awesome give-a-way! Please enter me.

    I totally love using a food processor for a variety of recipes. Mostly I would use it for nut grinding as I explore the new (to me) world of raw food.

  113. Sarah

    if I had one I’d make myself a batch of cashew milk and then some thick applesauce. yum!

  114. Sandy

    I would make some hummus and then some chocolate hazelnut spread. Yum!

  115. Celina

    I would use mine for my favorite cherry almond lara bars!

  116. vicki

    I would love to be able to make my own flours…..
    And pesto!

  117. Leslee

    We Love your blog – Thank You! I have passed it on to quite a few friends! If I had a food processor I would make your Jelly Doghnut Cupcakes. My daughter has been craving doughnuts terribly and she would be thrilled!

  118. lenna mau

    I would make your brownies and crackers if I had a wonderful food processor like this.

  119. Joan Seliger Sidney

    Hummus, pesto, & latkes are among my favorite food processor recipes.

  120. Kiersti

    Oh! The food processor I have was a gift from when I was in college, several (eh-em) years ago. The shredding/slicing piece broke many many years ago and I have been making due with it since then. It’s it totally on it’s last leg. What WOULDN’T I make with it…my option would be dizzyingly open!

  121. Fresh basil pesto is SO easy in the Cuisinart. My son also likes Elana’s cinnamon bun muffins mixed in the Cuisinart. It’s great for frozen almond flour – gets out all those little lumps!

  122. Stephanie Moschel

    My favorite recipe with a food processor is raw fudge. It has nuts, seeds, oats, honey, carob and pure vanilla. You process it until it is gooey and then press it into a pan. YUM! A food processor in your kitchen is a must!

  123. Courtney

    I like to make cookies in food processors!

  124. Corrie

    I love my older food processor to prep a lot of foods, but I LOVE it for making pizza dough and pastry dough for eclairs and cream puffs! YUM!

  125. Karyla Parrish @ wmnutrition.com

    I would use it to make Gazpacho, one of my favorite summer soups. I have a great recipe that makes a bunch and I can hardly wait, but I don’t have a food processor so I have to cut everything up and then put batches thru my blender. Since I am gluten intolerant it is a great meal and healthy too and I would make great use of it.

  126. Diamond

    I just used my food processor to make chorizo!

  127. Christina Jensen

    I am ga ga over anything with pesto. I like the traditional pesto with basil but have even ventured out of the box with cilantro pesto. They really take a recipe up a notch AND I usually have leftovers which I put on my sandwiches. Yum.

  128. Judy Corbett

    My favorite recipe to make in a food processor is a white bean hummus. The food processor makes everything very creamy. I got my food processor as a wedding present….over 25 years ago. It’s kind of small so I have to make the hummus in several batches.

  129. Holly

    I would love to win this processor for I have none. I would love to make alot of your recipes if I had one. I most certainly would make the banana carrot muffins!

  130. heather

    Elam’s, Your recipe’s have been a lifesaver,ok a meal saver, for my family. We deal with so many food /diet issue that if it weren’t for your wonderful recipes, we would be eating very bland fare since I lack creativity.
    A happily fed family!

  131. Wendy Briere

    I’d be making lots of soups (coconut, pumpkin, thai, etc…) and cheesecakes! My 9-year-old son would really enjoy experimenting with it too!

  132. Flo

    I love to use it to make mayo, vinigraitte and also mashed cauliflower.

  133. Sandra Morris

    I would make any and every recipe that could fit in the food processor! I love experimenting.

  134. Em

    I would love to make nut butters!

  135. Abby

    Homemade Larabars! I am obsessed with dates!

  136. Hi Elena!
    Your chocolate cranberry bars were delicious (well, I used figs instead of cranberries) and I think is one of my favorite recipes using a food processor.

    I have a tiny food processor (also cusinart) that I use all the time to puree dates and figs for my desserts. I’d love to get a better one, and the one you are giving away looks awesome!!

    Thanks for the giveaway

  137. Madeleine Todd

    Mashed cauliflower – comfort food I can eat all the time.

  138. Fran Edwards

    Elana I love your website. My daughter, Rachel, has been on the GAPS diet for 2 years now: no sugar, no grains, no starchy vegees and your website has been my life saver for her. Rachel’s favorite are your Rosemary Crackers. I even substitute the rosemary for other spices and use noah’s ark cookie cutters to make them look like animal crackers. Another favorite is the No Potato Salad and Mashed Cauliflower. Since she can’t have potatos, cauliflower is a perfect substitute for her. I’d loved to get my hands on that Cuisinart to simplify my baking. I’d make her homemade nut yogurt, Mashed Cauliflower, Pancakes, Simple Bread, Biscuits, Green Soup with Ginger and Cucumber Avacado dip, just to name a few. I would also use it for selfish reasons and make some homemade red pepper hummus!

  139. Amy

    Hi Elana,

    My absolute favorite thing to make with a food processor is peanut butter! I love fresh peanut butter . . . I also love to make almond butter, too! Both with a hint of honey and sea salt, yum!

    Unfortunately, making peanut butter with a food processor can be trying on a processor and mine is now over 8 years old . . . I could definitely use this gift. Thank you so much for the opportunity!

    — Amy

  140. Chrysann Rudig @ abundanceskincare.com


    One thing? I can only pick one thing? I would have to say hummus, but only because it make it more frequently than my second-favorite thing, which is pastry dough.

    Like you, I also LOVE my Cuisinart. Mine is ancient, from the early 1980s, but she’s still going strong. It’s a smaller one, and now that I am using a food dehydrator and making more raw foods, the 12 cup would be a dream come true!

    Thanks for all the great things you do, Elana!

    My favorite is the Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies. Since finding out that my health issues for 16 years were really due to Lyme disease, I’ve had to completely modify my diet – taking out gluten and processed sugar. I love your website! It has really been a lifesaver for keeping me happy while following a healthy diet. Your recipes are amazing and I share them with other “Lymies” all the time. Incidentally, I don’t own a food processor – I always have to make do with a hand blender the best that I can.

  142. Angie Kenny @ zencatbakery.com

    I want to puree vegetables and make nut-spreads…like the cauliflower dish or the Chocolate Hazelnut Spread!

  143. DH and I make an amazing chickpea/almond salad in our food processor. It’s a little tangy, a little earthy, a little crunchy, and a little smooth. It’s a LOT tasty, too, and would be very difficult to make without a food processor.

    I’d love to win this, because our food processor is ancient (30+ years old) and starting to show signs of needing to be retired. We hang on to it though, because we can still coax it into working and it is so heavy that it could double as a weapon to defend our house against intruders.

    Thanks for orchestrating this giveaway!

  144. Summer

    I love making chimichurri sauce with my food processor. Of course my fp is only 2 cups so I could really use a bigger one! I would start my making that pistacio parsley pesto mentioned earlier in the comments :)

  145. meg segerberg

    I received a Cuisinart as a wedding gift which was almost 27 years ago!! It still works well but over the years I have had to replace the bowl and misc. parts and have often toyed w/ the idea of replacing it with a newer model. It would be such a treat to have a new toy to play with!The g.f. mulberry granola sounds amazing. Think that might be the first recipe I would try should I win.

  146. Carol

    I would use it for my soup veggies, breads and whatever else I could explore with!! Thank you Elana for your website. You have helped me tremendously. I am gluten and dairy free.

  147. Danielle

    I have made the Double Chocolate Orange Torte, and I would love to make the crackers, mashed cauliflower, and cauliflower rice.

  148. Christy

    Soooo excited that your doing a giveaway for the 12 cup processor. I have a 4 cup Cuisinart processor that I have to use and it takes me FOREVER to make a big batch of anything because I have to mix it in small portions. Plus, the lids gotten cracked over the years and if it’s too full…what a mess. Still, I use that thing every day. I make a REALLY a great vegetarian mock tuna in it and it chops herbs in a cinch. It’s also beats chopping onions by hand! Thanks so much for this AWESOME opportunity!!

  149. Moira L

    It would *fabulous* to own such a nice food processor so I could finally make my homemade hummus. Cuisinart processors are just so efficient – they make the creamiest, smoothest hummus!

  150. I love making dips in my knockoff version. Would love the real thing!

  151. Elaina

    My favorite food to make with a processor is raw, gluten-free granola.

  152. Lissa M

    I love to bake so when I decided to incorporate raw/vegan foods I discovered raw nut crusts that replace dough crusts. Having the right sized and right powered food processor is critical to getting the correct consistency without turning your crust into a nut butter!

  153. Katie

    I love making all my salad dressings and a wonderful date, almond coconut snack ball for my kids in my old, simple food processor.

  154. Nicole

    I would make mashed cauliflower and stuffed mushrooms.

  155. Would love to have this processor. I already have the blender, but is too small. I make a great sorbet just using frozen fruit and a little almond milk.This processor would solvw so
    many problems and help me make shortcuts.

  156. Kelly @ The Nourishing Home @ facebook.com/TheNourishingHome

    I love my VitaMix too and am drooling over this Cuisinart! Hope to win it! Blessings, Kelly

  157. date-cacao-almond truffles…. and raw chashew-cheesecake…yum.

    I’d love a new food processor… mine is nearing a poor state, sigh.

  158. Kathleen Guertin

    I would love to make my own almond butter! As well as a long list of dips, spreads, and other goodies :) (This is a great giveaway – I have wanted a Cuisinart Processor for a while now but am a college student so I have to wait until I graduate and get a job!).

  159. Jody

    My favorite food processor recipe? Hummus with lots of garlic!

  160. Sandy Wegner

    I would love to have a food processor – I would make hummus and your creamy ricotta dip most definitely!!!! amazing giveaway!!!

  161. I love making salsa in my food processor!


  162. Jenny

    I have been wanting to replace my old food processor with the Rolls Royce of food processors ever since I saw someone use one at a potluck I went to! I really want to make nut butters and frozen banana ice cream, which my current one just can’t seem to handle.

  163. Ruth

    Cuisinart. Wow. I want one. My Oster is starting to give out with all of the Almond/Hazelnut milk I make.

    You’re the best!


  164. Sun dried tomato dressing for Tuscan salad.

  165. diana

    So timely! Was just babying my old Krups since I’ve already been told there are no replacement parts available any longer for it. I use it mostly to puree steamed veggies
    for soups, but have been hesitant to try it with pates. Like everyone, would be thrilled to win. I very much appreciate this blog and your phenomenal recipes.

  166. Debbie Main

    Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies!! YUM!!!

  167. Lori

    Vegetable stuffing during thanksgiving. Would like to make smoothies my girls and son would drink :)

  168. I think my most favorite recipe to make using food processor is Mark Sisson’s Noatmeal! It is filling and supremely delicious!

  169. Hi Elana!

    There are so many great things you can make with the food processor, including guacamole, gazpacho, homemade ground meat (a real money saver!) and bread dough, but my FAVORITE is Banana Bread! It’s so easy, the whole process takes a few minutes. My family and I make a bunch of them for the holidays and they are always a big hit.


  170. Ivana

    Cilantro hummus and almond butter!

  171. Alycia

    If I had a food processor, I’d give the double chocolate biscotti a shot.

  172. Jennifer

    There are so many things I’d love to make if I have a food processor. I’ve always wanted one. From your list, I’d love to try out most of those recipes you listed above. Right now, the jelly doughnut cupcakes sounds the best! Haven’t had those in years due to being gluten intolerant.



  174. Atour

    I make hummus, pesto and power bars. I would love to win this :-)
    Love your site and recipes. Thank you!

  175. amanda

    My fave food processor recipe is my Asain Cole Slaw! With almond butter dreesing!

  176. April

    I love to make roasted red pepper hummus and baba ganouj with my food processor. It doesn’t make these as smooth as it once did… Thanks for the great giveaway!

  177. Becky T

    My mom had one that she would make biscotti with… I would love to perfect my own GF biscotti this year!

  178. Monique

    I would love a new food processor. Mine is dying. It’s blade is not sharp anymore and it’s cracking. My husband got it as a wedding gift from his 1st marriage in 91!! I make so many things in it – yesterday I made raw coconut wraps – sooo good! I make mashed cauli in it! I make butter, whipped cream. I make raw nut desserts in it. I grind up nuts and seeds in it to use as flour. I use my food processor more than anything else in the kitchen. Guess that is why it is dying.

  179. Michel

    My favorite thing to make is fresh salsa with tomatoesm onions cilatro, jalapenos and lots of lime juice!

  180. lea goodwin

    I want to try and make some bars like the Lara bars with the food processor.

  181. Judy

    Your FIG TAPENADE is the perfect recipe for using the Cuisinart! The tapenade recipe gets rave reviews when served with your OLIVE ROSEMARY BREAD that I make into crackers. Thank you for your fabulous recipes!

  182. erica

    mustard lime chicken! love it!!

  183. Lisa DeSimone

    If I had this food processer I’d try the Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies – FOR SURE!

  184. Tiffani M.

    I love making pignoli cookies’ almond paste in a food processor as opposed to using store-bought almond paste!

  185. Lisa

    Oh I would love it! I love your site Elana! Three months gluten free today!!! I wish you could see the before and after pictures. I am amazed. We were invited to a dinner party last weekend. They weren’t fixing anything I could eat so I brought (to share) salmon and mashed cauliflower. They were both a hit. For dessert I shared Dina’s Delightful cookies and the Roasted banana ice cream. YUM! Everyone wanted to be gluten free, grain free and dairy free that night!!! Thank you much for being so generous of your time and recipes.

  186. I would use the food processor to make my delicious from-scratch pareve (non-dairy)ice cream for our synagogue. My last one broke and we don’t have funds to buy a new one.

  187. Bonni Snyder

    I only have a little food processor and I make mayonnaise in it. If I had a big food processor, I would love to make your raw apple sauce. Mmmmmmm……

    A big food processor would also be extremely helpful in making gefilte fish for our seder this year!

  188. James

    Mustard Lime Chicken!

  189. Gabriella

    I would make my own fresh pesto sauce for a creamy pesto lasagna!!!

  190. Grace Burns

    I would love to have a food processor! I would use it for our coconut milk fruit smoothies, and to make Mashed Cauliflower and Creamy Ricotta Dip for sure, & then have a blast experimenting with it – starting with the recipes you have listed here! Yum! I’m drooling just thinking about the possibilities…

  191. Danielle

    My favorite recipe from your collection that I used my (non-Cuisinart) food processor for would have to be the cranberry bars. I love the tartness from the cranberries with the nuttiness of the crust. I also use it to make spinach artichoke dip which makes prep time a snap.

  192. Arleen

    I would love a food processor! First of all I would make your energy bars with dates and cranberries, and then I would try the Chocolate Hazelnut spread….fresh pesto this summer…. I’m really hoping to win!

  193. Patricia

    I only have a very TINY food processor (food chopper only, I think). How wonderful it would be to have one like you are giving away. I would like to try to make almond butter. Thanks for the nice giveaway.

  194. Alfred L. Boudwin

    I would probably use the food processor to more finely chop vegetables–carrots for carrot cake, gazpacho, whatever sounds good!

  195. Jan Olsen

    I was so excited when I read this! My son and I are both Gluten Free. I love your cookbook! It has helped us with this transition. I have always wanted a cuisinart to help make my cooking experience more fun and efficient!

  196. Becca

    I have been wanting a food processor forever, but just don’t have the money to splurge on it at this time. I love being in the kitchen, so this would be a wonderful addition to my kitchen appliances. What would I use it for?! The possibilities are endless! I would pick mashed cauliflower. :)

  197. Kathy

    My favorite thing I would make with my food processor is a dish I have had at other people’s houses: a shredded carrot dish that has feta cheese and harissa in it. I have been telling myself I need to have a way to make it at MY house because it is so good.

  198. Joan Foberg


    Your brownie recipe is the first one in 17 years of working with gluten fee that I have been happy with. I must admit I was skeptical about the chips in the food processor thing but you had earned my trust with a number of other recipes so I gave it a whirl.

    Its not one of my kitchen standards. And what is nice is that these brownies do not get a weird texture after a couple of days. AND for us folks who are serious about our chocolate, they really give you a nice chocolate glow. :-)

    Thanks for all the great recipes. You site has been passed around to many friends and family.
    Happy Cooking!

  199. Johanna Burton @ rawkansas.blogspot.com

    I have tried to make your apple sauce. My food processor is too small to do an adequate job even thought it came out tasting quite good. I do love to make hummus in it though. I love hummus and raw veggies as a snack.

  200. Theresa

    I love using these kind of kitchen tools! Mashed cauliflower and guacamole would be some of the top items on my list. I really want to try Elana’s Carrot Banana Muffins also!

  201. Jennifer Hasselbush

    I like making homemade pesto in my food processor. Also, I like making my homemade Caesar Salad dressing. So yummy & easy to make.

  202. Suzette

    Love, love, love your double chocolate brownies! I have already printed off the chocolate cranberry power bars to try next, though. I think I might feel a little less guilty eating those for breakfast. :)

  203. Patty Donovan

    I’ve made some of the muffins with a food processor, cauliflower and several other concoctions. I also make sauerkraut and other fermented veggies. I have an older 7 cup Cuisinart and would dearly love a bigger, more versatile food processor. Thank you for your website; I use it all the time :)

  204. Shari Cerrato @ sharicerrato.max4u.com

    German Pancakes. I like fast and easy because I can not stand long I need to be in and out of the kitchen fast. This is so easy my 10 year old daughter and 16 year old son make it often.

    6 eggs
    1 cup milk or rice or almond milk
    1 cup flour or Pamala’s Baking mix

    Preheat oven to 425. Melt 1/2 cup butter in a 9X9 pan. Pour ingredients into pan and cook for 25 min. Top with Agava Nectur, Almond or Peanut butter, fresh fruit or your favorite.

  205. Kierie

    I would use it for Spinach and white bean Dip!! soo good!

  206. I have been eyeing those Fig Newtons, I would definitely make those babies!

  207. Cheryl Yank

    I love getting a recipe in my inbox almost every day, and many of them I have tried and found delicious.

  208. Paula

    I love using a food processor to thinly slice cabbage to make sauerkraut.

  209. DajM

    Olive tapenade is my favorite thing to make in my tiny food processor.

  210. Rosie

    I would love making hummus in a food processor!

  211. I know I should be making more things in my food processor, but the only thing I really enjoy making is homemade nut and seed butters. I like making raw food recipes, as well, such as a raw chocolate cake made with walnuts, dates and carob powder. So good! :)

  212. Shannon

    a raw energy bar. I’m excited to try your espresso power bars. Thanks!

  213. Toni

    I love using a food processor for dates. I’ve made a chocolate frosting using dates, cashews, cocoa powder and some agave. It was delicious.

    I also use it for soaked cashews that I add basil to make a delish creamy pesto sauce. I use the pesto for a gf, dairy free lasagne that is so creamy no ever notices it doesn’t have any cheese!

    Thanks so much.

  214. Debbie H

    Sure are a lot of comments. I guess everyone wants a new Cuisinart! My favorite food processor recipe is Falafel!

  215. oh my goodness, elana, this is so neat! as a gluten-free vegan on a high raw diet, i would immediately, upon opening this baby up, make your simple and lovely raw applesauce for my friends and my wonderful mom who lives right next door to me (she’d appreciate it and we’d share the processor).

    i’d even use the lemons from my cute dwarf pink lemonade tree!

    love your gf and vegan recipes–thanks!

  216. Kelley Hart

    Hi Elana!
    We use our food processor for LOTS of things. But one of our favorite recipes that we use it for is Salman Cakes. We chop up the carrots, onions, walnuts, garlic, etc… Super yummy! It’s just NEVER big enough for everything we need to process… :)
    Thanks for the recipes and for the chance to win a new cuisinart!

  217. Anne

    I don’t have a food processor. If I had one though, I would probably use it first to shred carrots. I am always making carrot bars, cakes etc. with my grand children. We then get to enjoy something that tastes sweet, and the bonus of knowing they are getting their veggies!

  218. Dorothy

    I’ve always wanted a food processor, but wasn’t sure if it was worth the cost. I already have a Vita mixer and love it. Now it sounds like I need the food processor to make my kitchen complete. Love your recipes too.

  219. Vanessa Meyer

    My food processor died mid-hazelnut spread making (I am/was kind of an addict). I’ve been lost without it!

  220. I make a ton of stuff with my food processor. Trouble is, it is way too small. I would LOVE a 12-cup – what a difference it would make to be able to process, say, your recipe for “Gluten Free and Grain Free ‘Raw’ Granola” in one single batch!

  221. Meryl markowitz

    I would love to have a food processor for Pesach. It would really cut down on my prep time. There’s enough to do with cleaning the house and preparing the kitchen. Any break I can get, I woulfd gladly accept.

    Kuglels would be a breeze, no hand grating. Charoset, and quickly shredding vegys for salads.

    What a dream that would be for me.

  222. Hummus. Hands down the easiest, most frequently made dip from the food processor.

  223. Mary Vance Berlin @ mvsharesjuiceplus.com

    By far and away my fave recipe is your turkey white bean chili! When those white beans are pureed, and added back into the recipe, yum, yum! It’s enough to make you bite your finger!!! :-)

  224. Sharon S

    I love my very very very old food processor. I use it nearly daily for a variety of meal prep as well as breads and muffins, with your double chocolate muffins quickly coming to mind.

  225. Myra

    HUMMUS!! is my fav using the food processor…and boy could I use a new one. Thanks!!

  226. Elizabeth Bailik

    I would love to learn how to make fruit smoothies the home grown way.

  227. jc

    i’d make cauliflower rice for raw sushi or mashed cauliflower~

    banana ice cream is a must too! also, hummus!!!

  228. I am addicted to Pioneer Woman’s Restuarant Style Salsa and you use a food processor to make it. I have a tiny little food processor/blender combo that is about 10 years old and showing it’s age. In fact my husband just glued the bowl the other week. And with this one, I have to make the salsa in three batches so that the bowl is not too full so that it leaks all out of the edges, which I’ve done plenty of times. A 12 cup machine would be a dream!
    I also might then be able to use it for dough, which I have never done before.
    Thanks for the opportunity Elena!

  229. Lidia

    I’d like to make the mashed calliflour. I’d also like to try some of your dessert recipes, such as the hazelnut chocolate spread.

  230. anna eidson

    Yeah! The perfect piece of equipment to make a divine pistachio-meyer lemon pesto. Or, or, or…..! Raw orange-chocolate truffles…sinfully delicious, yet insanely GOOD for you. Oh! And edamame hummus! But maybe, just maybe the best of all – healthy dough for homemade dog cookies. A four legged fella needs good food too, you know!

  231. Vicki

    I make hummus in seconds and everyone thinks that I worked very hard on it. Sh, don’t tell

  232. Brandee Simmang @ bsimmang@comcast.net

    OMG, your double chocolate walnut brownies are an absolute dream! my daughter is turning 10 tomorrow(April 1st), and has requested that I make those for her slumber party!!! melts my heart that she requests these!!!

  233. Kim Brown

    Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies. Love, love chocolate!

  234. Jennifer Stephenson

    If I had a food processor, I would definitely experiment with a walnut pesto. Love walnuts and basil, so seems like it would be a good combination.

  235. kellee

    I’d love to make pesto with the food processor. Yummy basil and walnut or cilantro and pistacio…so many options! Thank you!

  236. Diana Lesire Brandmeyer @ pencildancer.com

    There are so many things I could make. Funny the first thing that comes to mind is chocolate chip cookies made with oat flour.

  237. Wendy Lynne @ fitfoodcoach.com

    My current food processor was passed down from my former mother-in-law. Boy it would be nice to have a new one, with happier memories LOL!

    Love your site – thank you for all your excellent recipes!

  238. Julie

    I would love to make homemade spaghetti sauce. My Mother-in-Law uses a processor all the time and I would love to learn her recipes.
    Thanks for the chance!

  239. Kristie

    I currently don’t have a Cuisinart, but having one would improve my baking/cooking! The very 1st thing I would make is the Carrot Banana muffins! YUM!

  240. Oh I have been wanting one of these for a long time now (had one but gave it to my sister) – I would use it right away to make my butternut squash soup recipe.

  241. Debbie Kuhn

    If I had a food processor, I would make some of my favorite recipes:

    GF Pizza Dough
    GF Sourdough Bread Dough
    GF Red Velvet Cupcakes

    It would be a time saver for me, I do a lot of Advanced Meal and it would cut a lot of my prep work almost in half!!!

    It would definitely be used and loved every day in my kitchen. No dust bunnies allowed on my kitchen appliances!!!

  242. Heather

    this is a wonderful giveaway & that food processor is much better than my current one. I just made a batch of your chocolate cranberry power bars and they are so yummy!

  243. Sandy Austin

    Elana, I use my processor most often to make my “garbonza mix.”
    I pulse garbonza beans, carrot chunks, broccoli flowers, purple onion, and celery until I get a mixture similar in size to small rice. A container full stays in the refrig for the week. I nibble on it (with or without rice crackers or fill half a gluten free pita pocket. A small amount (3-4 tablespoons) provide enough bulk and protein to make a quick snack or lunch that is simply sitting there ready to eat.
    My processor is even older than yours (kids now 40 yrs old!)The plastic handle that locks into place before the processor will engage broke about a month ago. I’ve not yet replaced it. Winning your processor would surely solve that problem (:>
    Thanks for making the possibility available to your faithful readers.

  244. Meredith

    Thanks for this great giveaway! I would use it for everything! Hummus, veggies, and salsa since my kids would live on salsa if they could!

  245. Bethany Miller

    O boy! I would love this food processor. We would eat homemade green and red salsa all summer long!

  246. Silvia

    Ohhh where do I begin, what I use a food preocessor for, soups , veggies, mixing all the delightful recipes for muffins you post on your site, it makes life sooo easy, I love love your cauliflower rice one of my favorite dishes to make and like mentioned before love using it for combining my muffin mixes! I have a small three cup processor and I would love a big one, espcially makig a huge batch of that loveley devine Almond butter you had posted it on here! It is a staple in my household! I would love it!

  247. carol

    Love all your GF recipes..been trying to eliminate glutens in my diet in hoping that it will help my MS…had to quit work last year because of it, but on the bright side… I have more time to try all of your dishes & a food processor like that would make it so nice !!!

  248. Deborah Binder

    I have a backyard garden and love to make big batches of homemade tomato sauce that I process in glass jars. Having the Cuisinart to chop the peppers, onions, herbs, etc would be FABULOUS! Thanks for all of your healthy option–especially for the Jewish holidays. L’Chaim!

  249. Liz N

    I love making hummus. Also I love using a food processor for mixing up my cheesecake batter. It takes out all the lumps! Thanks for the chance to win!

  250. Brandee Simmang @ bsimmang@comcast.net

    Today I made butter cookies (almond flour, butter, celtic sea salt, vanilla and honey) using my food processor! Actually turned it into a large “cookie cake” for my daughter’s birthday party tomorrow!

    How does anyone get by without a food processor!!!!???!?!?

  251. Julie

    Mmm… if I had a food processor, I would use it to make fresh salsas. I love fresh fruits and vegetables, and I LOVE salsas, but for now I chop by hand. Fun sometimes, but I’m sure it would be magical to have it in *seconds*!! :D

  252. johanna

    Your Orange Cranberry Biscotti–bar none the best!!!! Love it!!! And if there are any sympathy points, the crappy NON Cuisinart brand food processor we currently have is on its last blends, AND it’s a PITA to clean!

  253. Joan

    I would love a food processor so I can more easily make dill and caper salmon burgers!

  254. Oh what a dream… I was reading your post recently about homemade power bars and I really wanted to make the almond ones you noted here http://www.elanaspantry.com/power-bars/ but found that I need a food processor for most of them. So that’s which recipe I would try as step one with my beautiful new food processor if I won. The macadamia nut version of them sounds delish as well.

    Thanks for this opportunity Elana and Cuisinart : )

  255. Kim R.

    It would be wonderful to use this valuable kitchen tool to make nut meal for tortes, and then use it to make the chocolate sauce — gluten free goodness!

  256. Allyson

    I am so thrilled by your give-a-way. I’ve been thinking for weeks on how much I need to get a food processor. Your power bars would be an amazing addition to my breakfast foods. I’d also LOVE to be able to grind my own nuts, but sadly, my small coffee grinder just won’t cut it.

  257. Jackie Davis

    I would love a food processor. I am currently using my parent’s old one [I am 59 and they are in their late 80’s] so you know how worn out it is. I just got your book and have been making recipes from it as well as from your web site. I love the pumpkin bars but I did have to increase the cinnamon for a little more flavor. The old processor did seem to handle this recipe okay. I am currently using a mini food processor to chop up vegetables for my soups [basal joint replacements in both hands so don’t chop too good] but I have to do it in shifts because it is so small. It is better than the old food processor but not much room. PS. thanks so much for your recipes. They have made the anti-candida, gluten free, and diabetic diet I am on much more enjoyable. Looking forward to the cupcake book which I have pre ordered.

  258. Becky

    If I win this food processor, the first thing I would make is a delicious cole slaw with the beautiful red cabbage growing in my garden. Next I would grate carrots to add to the fresh food I make regularly for my beloved blue Weimaraner, Markai.

  259. Lorri

    The cuisinart food processor is the best piece of equipment I have tried for making bread dough and for grating cheese and veges. Hard to keep a modern kitchen going without one.

  260. Erin

    Hummus! Hands down, the easiest and best way to make it. =)

  261. Amy Daly

    My favorite thing to make in a food processor is bliss balls (with dates, almonds, cacao, honey, sea salt, coconut, and whatever other forms of healthy goodness you’ve got in your kitchen). A healthy, sweet treat and a nice alternative to candy bars, cookies, etc.!

  262. Samantha

    I unfortunately do not own a food processor, but when I do I plan to make a variety of doughs… GF pizza crust… etc. I love cooking everything from scratch so I’m sure a food processor would help in many of my culinary endeavors ;-) Love your recipes!!!

  263. Kat in Hawaii

    I have never had a Cuisinart…but in my dreams, I have always imagined making gluten free bread…mmmm….and chopping veggies…and…and…the possibilities are endless!!


  264. Jason Ruggieri

    Roast Carrot and Parsnip Puree


    Garlic Mashed Cauliflower


  265. Erica Dinner

    I LOVE the carrot kugel!! Since I just got a vitamix I have made about 12 carrot kugels in my, also very very very old food processor

  266. Julie Levick

    Is there anything better than jelly donut cupcakes??? That would be at the top of my list of things to make with a food processor, especially since they would be great to share with friends and family. :)

  267. Amy Merideth

    I have never had a food processor but the other day I tried to make homemade hummus with my blender and it was a failure. So I guess hummus and pesto are the two things I would love to make (well).

  268. Tessa

    I love your blog, and I love to make hummus in the food processor.

    Well, my latest favorite recipe is from 3/30. The chocolate cranberry power bars. I took them into bootcamp this morning and everyone LOVED them! Even our instructor…a very picky eater when it comes to his refueling foods.


    hhhmmm…. if the world was my kitchen, and I had a brand-spankinew, nifty, dandy cuisinart food processor, I would make THE most delicious raw cacao, cardamom and walnut brownies I have ever had in my life…

    Somewhere between ecstasy and nirvana, these little choc-o-bites of nature are packed full of trace minerals, anti-oxidants, nature’s medicine and bliss.

    1 cup medjool date (sans pits and steeped in hot water for 1 minute)
    1 cup raw walnut pieces (or roasted in your own oven, if raw isn’t your shtick)
    1/4 cup raw hemp seeds
    ½ cup cacao powder
    pinch sea salt
    1 T freshly ground cardamom seeds
    coconut milk as needed to moisten


    Mix: Place walnuts in a food processor and grind for a couple seconds to form a coarse flour. While machine is running, add pitted dates, cacao powder and salt, processing until a moist, crumb-like dough has formed.

    Form: Spread into an 8×8 inch pan, sprinkle with cacao nibs, and press firmly into a solid brownie layer. Cut into bite-size squares and serve. Alternately, press and roll brownie dough into small balls to make brownie bites.

    Hi there! My favorite recipe that requires using a food processor is an old family recipe called “Kolache.” It’s a sweet nut roll made with sweet dough & ground walnuts. I always used the food processor to grind the walnuts. :-)

    Thank you for this great giveaway! :-)

  272. Melissa Somers-Vera

    If I had a food processor I would love to make the Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies. They look absolutely delicious!

  273. melanie

    My food processor just broke and I miss it a

  274. My favorite food processor food is almond butter. I got the idea from your blog and am officially consumed by trying new recipes from this and other glutten free blogs. Please keep up the great work you do.
    Here’s the posting for my almond butter, couldn’t do it without the mixer! thanks.

  275. Sara

    I make cultured vegetables with mine. I could not imagine life without it! I inherited it from my mother-in-law almost fourteen years ago. It is cracked in a couple of places, but I love it!

  276. Jordana Halpern Geist @ healthyhappyyou.org

    If I had that amazing cuisinart…..smooth and creamy nut and seed butters….


  277. brandi@BranAppetit @ branappetit.com

    oh man, I need a food processor SO bad! ours broke months ago and we haven’t saved up enough for a really good quality one yet.

    I really want one to make my own nut butters at home AND for hummus!

  278. kim

    I would love to be entered into your drawing…thanks so much…

  279. Monica

    I absolutely LOVE making energy bars! Except I have been using blenders and I would LOVE a food processor so that I could make them with more ease!

  280. Anne

    Elana — I love your cookbook and your website. My 2 sisters and I are Celiacs and appreciate all your great recipes and ideas!!

  281. Kathleen

    My favorite thing to make is ‘banana soft serve’! Or grind nuts for your power bars – a staple in my house.

  282. Monica

    Homade Luna bars!!! My food processor died:(

  283. Elana, I CANNOT believe the synchronicity with this one!!!

    My fiancee and I are doing a mostly raw diet right now and loving it, so we were googling food processors YESTERDAY and eyeing this exact one. We just bought a blender, cute retro green Waring one that we like, but also realize that we are just going to get a Vitamix. We have been using a Magic Bullet, which has been nice for a lot of things, but not enough for others.

    I LOVE making raw avocado chocolate pudding/mousse in a food processor with Lovely Lilly of LilliansTestKitchen.com.

    I hope I win! It’s a sign from the universe… :)

  284. Alicia Crevier

    I have a son who just turned 5 months old. I am planning on making all of my own baby food when he is able to eat it. It would sure be nice to have a food processor because I do not currently have one. But, if I did, I would use it almost everyday to make all the delicious recipes that I have never been able to make before. Or to just make the recipes I have made a whoooole lot easier. My family adores your website, as we are wheat, sugar, and dairy intolerant. I love that I do not have to try to figure out a way to make these recipes edible for us – it is already done! Thanks for all you do!


  285. rebekah vanpelt

    I love to make pesto sauce in a food processor.

  286. jen

    Wow.. there are so many things I’d make, but I would start by making some hazelnut milk… mmmmm!

  287. Randi

    My favorite recipe would the one that I make that day, as I would use it EVERYDAY! Using the many gluten free recipes from your book (and others.) Cooking and baking everyday… It’s what I do! ?

  288. I would LOVE to try to make some of your power bars! I am an avid cyclist and triathlete and I am sick and tired of buying bars to fuel my activities. To be able to make them at home would be fantastic, especially since I am gluten-free. The cranberry chocolate bars you recently posted have my mouth watering, but being in dental school (aka deep in debt) keeps me from purchasing one of these amazing kitchen appliances!

  289. Jane Ballantyne

    I have used a food processor to make cookies for several years.
    1cup almond flour
    1/2 cup icing sugar
    1/2 cup corn starch
    Add butter or margarine a bit at a time and whiz….until easy to shape into balls

    Christmas could not happen without these cookies

    Thanks so much for the almond flour recipes…..

  290. there is a great raw veggie/nut pate from an ani phyo cookbook that I like to make that really requires a food processor to get the right consistency. it is so fresh and yummy tasting, perfect on a bed of lettuce or on veggie sticks or crackers… what a great giveaway- a new cuisinart….it would look so great on my counter :)


  291. Andrea L.

    Elana, I LOVE your Green Goddess Dressing! That’s what I would use a new food processor for. My current F.P. is shot. I could really use a new one.

  292. Caroline Bull

    Right now it’s a toss up between cauliflower rice and remoulade. Both are amazing!

  293. BlueRoseMama

    I would make those powerbars with that new kitchen toy!

  294. Kristine

    I would love to make a few of those recipes! Yum! How about for “starters” the sesame dip. That has been a favorite around here!

  295. Ohhh…Me! Me! Me! I would love to have one to make batches and batches of my favorite beet tapenade (roased beets, walnuts, balsamic vinegar, olive oil and salt). So delicious. For my birthday last year my friends chipped in and gave me a cuisinart and one of my friends would have an Oprah moment if I could return the wonderful favor.

  296. Lisa

    My favorite recipe using the food processor is sofrito (a blend of cilantro, peppers, onions). I made this with my grandmother as a child but she would use the blender and everytime we made it the blender would stop. As an adult I continued to use the blender, out of habit, until one day I just decided to try it in the food process and I was in heaven. I have never gone back to the blender. I always say it’s the little things in life.

    • Janice Howell

      If I had a food processor I would make the muffins. It sounds so good and healthy…..

  297. patti strong

    I Love Love Love the Mashed Cauliflower!! I make it in my small food processor… would LOVE to have a larger one! I also make flax/chia seed crackers (my recipe)in my food processor!

  298. Jenn Strilchuk

    I use my food processor to make home made lara bars and to chop up veggies for home made soups. The one I own is just a cheap Black and Decker and isn’t very powerful. I’ve been dreaming of getting a Cuisinart for a long time. If I had one, I make my own almond butter…..oh, I hope I win!

  299. Emily

    I’m a new international graduate student, and to be honest, food processors were sooo out of my league! but i just had my wisdom teeth operation, and i found blenders/food processors sooo soo good for making green smoothies, so I get my greens even as my gums and jaws heal up!

  300. Ella

    Pesto and salsa are my favorites!!:)

  301. oooh If I had a food processor I would make home made pesto galore!! I have also made you fig neutrons at a friends house, using her processor..

  302. Jenn

    Flourless chocolate cake… made with garbanzo beans and topped with peanut butter frosting. My favorite dessert fix!

  303. heather

    My favorite thing to make in a food processor is hummous! i know that it is a simple thing to do, but it seems like i make it all of the time : ) so yummy!

    i have the original, first model, cuisinart as a hand me down from my mom.

  304. JoAnn Whitley

    Hi Elana, I have several recipes that I like but I use it most for pureeing beans….I love to do this and use it to thicken soups…it works great and adds fiber and protein and no one knows they are in there. The cuisinart that I have is the very smallest and I would love to win this big one!!! Thank you so much for your website. JoAnn

  305. Leah

    Oh how could I choose!! I’d love to make salmon cakes, homemade laura bars, and pesto!

  306. If I had a food processor, I would make everything from salsa to falafel to nut butters!

  307. My favorite food processor recipe is Raw Granola from Raw Food, Real World by Matthew Kenney and Sarma Melngailis. I’d love to have a bigger food processor because I have to make this recipe in little batches with my 4-cup machine!

  308. Jan Mumma

    I love the mashed cauliflower! My doc said to lose weight that a low-carb diet works well and the mashed cauliflower is so delicious. My Cuisinart is very old and I think about to self-destruct so I sure could use a new one. Here’s hoping!!

  309. Linda Peterson

    Blessings Elana,
    If I had a Cuisinart, I would make homemade guacamole and different kinds of salsa. I thank my youngest son for getting me hooked on the them. LOL Also, I am going to be a first time grandma. I will be working on teaching my daughter how to make homemade organic babyfood. I no longer have a processor and would deeply appreciate getting a new one. Thank you for your time and talents.

  310. Denise

    I was just looking into food processors after your last post on chocolate cranberry power bars! That would be the first recipe I would try. In the past I have used my old blender when recipes have called for a food processor, but it doesn’t seem to work very well. I would love to have a Cuisinart! Thanks for offering this give away!

  311. Anne

    … forgot to mention… two of my favorite food-processor recipes are hummus and pesto !!!!! Yum :)

  312. Tracy

    i am definitely in need for a bigger food processor, i currently have a 4-cup, which works great – but we are expecting our first baby in july, and i am planning to make all my own baby food – so i’m pretty sure a 4-cupper, is not gonna cut it for long! :)

    have been loving all your fantastic recipes! thanks for all you do!

  313. Rebecca

    My favorite recipe to use a food processor for is nut bars with almonds, almond butter, pecans and coconut oil. Yum!

  314. Paula Shapiro

    Elana’s cook book is the one I use and recommend to everyone gluten free or not. There are many recipes I’d like to make but I don’t have a food processor. Love the turkey burgers!

  315. I love using a good food processor for making hummus. I always soak my chick peas to sprouting before cooking.

  316. Julie

    I would love to make the Chocolate Expression power bar recipe! I love on-the-go bars, but the ones in the stores are so expensive.

  317. OMG! I’ve been drooling over that food processor for months now! My old food processor broke so I’ve been without one for waaaay too long. As soon as I get a new one I’m making a big batch of hummus. Pesto is next on my list.

  318. jo

    My Kitchen Aid Food Processor sometimes leaks, I don’t like that. I also have a Cuisinart Toaster on my countervthat works great, it’s lonely, I think it needs friend :) I’d love to have this beautiful food processor :)

  319. Matt Stubbs

    I really love your Chcolate Hazelnut spread it is awesome.

  320. jackie

    Hmmmm…what would I make? Everything on Elana’s list to start. Love her recipes. Would sooo love to have this!!!

  321. Shari

    We make a breakfast pumpkin recipe with cottage cheese, egg, pumpkin pie spice, etc (a recipe from the About.com/Low-Carbs site that I modified) in the food processor and put it into glass bowls for microwaving at work later (then stirring in flax seed meal.) It’s is so yummy and it smells sooooooooo good, my co-workers alwlays comment on how good it smells! It’s not nearly as good when it’s not pureed/mixed in the food processor because the cottage cheese remains lumpy.

  322. Kelly @ The Nourishing Home @ facebook.com/TheNourishingHome

    I totally forgot to mention my favorite food processor recipe (probably because I am so excited about the new Cuisinart giveaway!) It’s cinnamon walnut cookies made in the food processor – they are SO YUMMY no one ever guesses that they are completely grain-free and sugar-free. Here’s the recipe (you see a photo of my 20 year old food processor – trying to gain sympathy points, here, ha ha): http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=189616354386232

  323. Lisa Rogers

    Oh wow, so many things I have needed a processor for that my silly little blender just cannot do. Hmmm for starters, pureeing fresh roasted pumpkin for my Pumpkin Hazelnut Torte, or beets for an awesome Red Velvet Cake, or making my own hazelnut meal. It would be fabulous to help me with so many of my meals and such. I currently have one of the tiny cuisinart food processors, but it’s old and wearing out. There are so many things I can think to do with it to make my time in the kitchen easier. :-)

  324. Tammy

    Gluten free potato kugel, just in time for Passover!

    • Tammy

      Just wanted to add, that I’ve never had the extra money to buy one, so for the last 9 years of marriage, I’ve been grating by hand! (for latkes, too :) )

  325. Donna

    My favorite use for a food processor is making homemade soups. I used to avoid making them for all the chopping I had to do, but with a food processor, all that chopping is so easy (especially onions, which are awful to chop by hand) and I feel like I’m eating more healthy by making my soups from scratch.

  326. Nicole Smith @ thefaithfuloven.com

    I would make anything and everything I could! My favorite is probably the carrot banana muffin! But I also like to make salsa and mac & “cheez” with my food processor! But it just recently broke!

  327. Brenda Gaines

    I have never had a food processor – and I have never tried making crackers.
    I think I’d try the multi-grain (grainless) crackers first if I had one.

  328. Arlene Griffin

    I am gearing up (and gearing up my family) to go gluten free in April. I have been diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease and we all have various problems, namely allergies, asthma, eczema, etc. I believe food intolerances are at the root of it all and have been gathering gluten free recipes for our experiment. A food processor would be ideal to make gluten free breads so my family doesn’t give up on me.:) Love your site, Elana.


  329. Lois Scarbrough @ bountifulspinweave.com

    What an amazing giveaway!!! My 30 year old Cuisinart has a cracked base and bowl and it does not chop evenly anymore. I am starting to look into getting a replacement. I could not function without one!!! I use it almost every day. I make almond butter regularly. I use it to make tuna salad or chicken salad…I chop up a red apple, walnuts, dill pickles and green onions, then hand mix with the tuna or the canned chicken and mayonnaise…yum! It makes great salsa and great guacamole, tomatillo salsa, hash, hummus, coleslaw, carrots for carrot cake, chops veggies so quickly for soups. I would like to make your fig newtons…that is one thing I really miss.
    I just made my own almond milk and made your crackers with the pulp. They were outstanding!!! I also love your cinnamon muffins, of course the peanut butter bread, pancakes and the pizza dough. I just got your book so have not had a chance to make all I want to yet. Thank you for the fabulous recipes! I have sent links to a lot of friends and they all liked your recipes.
    Sincerely, Lois

  330. Ronnie Cook Zuhlke

    I’d make gazpacho with tomatoes from my garden…RCZ

  331. My food processor died a few months ago and I have been missing it dearly. I’m going to bet the recipe I used most in my food processor was hummus. It is also fabulous for grating veggies quickly so my arm doesn’t fall off trying to hand grate pounds of cabbage or sweet potatoes. Thanks!

  332. Christey

    My hands down absolute favorite recipe to make in my food processor is Elana’s spicy power bars. Those bars of yours the best thing EVER. The flavors and texture are perfection. The bummer is I only have a 3 cup processor and I have to make the bars in stages. Elana’s recipes are all a hit, I don’t think I’ve tried one I didn’t like, but again my absolute favorite is the spicy power bars and that’s what I make in my processor all the time!

  333. Michelle

    would love to win! would use it for many things, but right now to make baby food!

  334. Cheryl McLean

    My favorite thing to make in my food processor is pie dough… I love that moment when it all comes together in a beautiful ball just ready to pluck from the bowl of the food processor. It’s magic!

  335. Allison

    I would definitely make curried mashed cauliflower! Mmmmm!

  336. judy gal

    i would make pizza dough for veggie pizza on the grill.

  337. Michelle S

    It’s beautiful! :) I have been wanting a new more powerful food processor for awhile. love your site and recipes Elana.

  338. Marguerite Payne @ BellaBeadsOriginals.com

    Hi Elana,

    I love my Cuisinart and use it a lot! What I’d like to do if I won this Cuisinart is give it to my sister. She loves to cook and is a fabulous cook. Her Cuisinart is worn out but she can’t afford a new one.

  339. Jennifer @ EFTHypnosis.com

    Ohhh, pretty! My food processor died recently, and I’ve been missing some of my favorite foods. Something I like to make often is “No-Cheese Spread” from John Robbins’ book “Diet for A New World”, which combines cashews, sauteed red pepper, nutritional yeast, tamari, olive oil, and sesame seeds. It’s super good on dairy free pizza, crackers, as a veggie dip, etc.

  340. Alana

    I would love to be able to make my own nut butters! And also try your chocolate hazelnut spread!

  341. jerusalem @ jollygoodegal.com

    I love to make pastry dough in my food processor. I know that is a simple answer but maybe if I had this one I would learn to make some more intricate dishes with it!

  342. Meggin

    Oh I need this:) I would make my raw pie crusts with it! And chop onions without crying! Oh please pick me:)
    Thanks for the offer!

  343. Peggy Jansing

    I would make fruit salsa if I had one!

  344. amom

    I would love to try making homemade Nutella using this new Cuisinart food processor!

  345. Hummus and Pesto! But after seeing your list of recipes, if I won this I would definitly be trying A LOT more! :-D

  346. Mary Rondeau @ wholeness.com

    Couple favs:
    1. Hummus
    2. Pesto
    3. falafals
    Super yummy and don’t know what I’d do without my food processor!

  347. Danielle

    Thank you for the opportunity!! Fingers and toes crossed!

  348. Nancy McGlinchey

    I would love to have a Cuisinart and would use it to make Artisan bread dough on a regular basis. It would be wonderful!

  349. Karen R

    Love the chocolate mocha biscotti!

  350. Lily

    I woud use a new food processor to make your power bars!!! Also, if I had a food processor, I would be able to make more of your recipes.. so far I’ve only made a few but they all look SO AMAZING.
    What a great giveaway!!

  351. Stephanie

    If I had a Cuisinart, I’d definitely try the double chocolate walnut brownies!

  352. Shelley

    Since my celiac diagnosis, I cook nearly all my meals. Even if I go out, I generally bring my own food. I purchased a Vita Mix to make green smoothies and soups to begin my healing process with nutrient rich meals that could be digested easily. That was 2 years ago and it worked – my health has improved. Thanks to your amazing website, my repertoire of recipes has been increasing dramatically. I have used many of your recipes and loved everyone. In particular, I appreciate your holiday menus. I have planned Rosh Hashanah, Thanksgiving and Hanukkah meals using your menus. Love IT!!!! Passover is quickly approaching and I would love to make your gefilte fish recipe for myself and my family. It would be amazing to have a cuisinart food processor to prepare the gefilte fish and explore new recipes. Thanks for this opportunity. I hope I win but if it is not me, I offer my congratulations to the winner!

  353. I like to make a pesto with walnuts, cilantro, mustard, olive oil,9 salt and pepper with the food processor.

  354. abby

    I would make macadamia nut butter. I can’t find it in stores.

  355. Carol

    I have a 4-cup food processor and I’ve used it to make salsa, hummus, and gluten-free pancakes and brownies.

  356. Date Nut Torte (raw) Nice giveaway..thank you!

  357. E Harris

    If I had a Cuisinart, I would make loads of pesto with fresh basil from my garden. I would freeze some so I could enjoy summer year-round. And, I would be able give pesto as gifts since it is truly one of my favorite things.

  358. Marilyn Forest-Dott

    So many wonderful recipes here. I’m actually enjoying cooking and eating again. I recently made Gluten Free Multi “Grain” Crackers, which uses a food processor and they are delicious. I had to bake them a little longer at a slightly higher temp to get them to be crispy. Delicious!

  359. Darkhorse

    Pesto!!! It takes a long time to make it in a 2 cup mini… :)

    Thanks Elana!

  360. Aura Aryeff

    Hi there Elana…my favorite uses for my very old cuisinart right now are some of your almond flour based bread and cookie recipes! I’ve been making fish cakes lately as well, experimenting with different kinds of fish and other veggies…thanks! ~Aura

  361. Joann

    I’m sure my daughter would love to have her food processor back so I can use my own to make coleslaw and shredded meat recipes!

  362. I like to use mine with my pizza crust recipe. :-)

    Elana, thank you so much for offering this to us. I think that I am in the market for a Vita Mix as well. Any suggestions? Please feel free to e-mail me. xrogersh@pld.com

  363. RH

    Perfect timing! I have a well-loved Cuisinart that’s on its last legs. When I use it now it makes the saddest, slowest whirring noise you’ve ever heard. Given a new one, I would use it for everything I used my old one for, which is everything. First on the list? Maybe walnut crema for some delicious roasted asparagus.

  364. Cathy North

    I love homemade salsa and soups made with a food processor.

  365. Loryn

    The double chocolate walnut brownies take me over the moon. With the push of a cuisinart button, they are ready to bake in no time. This is what every brownie wants to be.

  366. ~M

    My favorite Elana’s Pantry food processor recipe is your powerbars.

  367. Sarah

    I would make ultra-thick smoothies that require a spoon. And nut butters. I think actually I would just eat all of my food in a blended state, because I would be so overjoyed.

  368. Kelly- 18 Hour Kitchen @ 18hourkitchen.blogspot.com

    Lately I’ve been making hummus in my food processor… chickpeas, feta, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and salt and pepper…

  369. Dorothea

    I had a wonderful 25 years with my Cuisinart before the bowl cracked and rendered it useless. I’ve been lusting after the new Elite series ever since! One of my favorite recipes to make with a food processor is large batches of fresh, summertime Pico de Gallo. Thank you for such an awesome giveaway!

  370. shirley

    My very aged food processor (which we’ve had since ‘before kids’ as well :-) is my go to for grating potatoes for latkes and cabbage for Cole slaw.

    Thanks for the opportunity, Elana!

  371. Sweet! I SO need one of these. I’ve had Crohn’s since Nov. 2009, and am treating it with diet and natural medicine. A good food processor would expand my diet options a ton!!!!

  372. Heidi B.

    If I had a food processor, I would make GF protein bars!

  373. Eri

    I like making different dips for my kids. They eat vegetables they don’t normally eat if I make dips for them (and they don’t know that the dips already have vegetables and beans in them…)

  374. Kristen

    Thank you for all your wonderful recipes! We look forward to making the Almond Flour cake this weekend for my Sons 6th Birthday.

  375. Neva

    I do not have a food process – but would love to have one. Some many reciepes I want to try need one. I would make your mashed cauliflower, and chocolate hazelnut spread for sure. Thanks for sharing

  376. Marybeth

    I love using my food processor to make pastes for meat and fish, the pastes also work well if you are going to coat something in any type of gf cereal or crumbs. A yummy one: garlic cloves, red onion, basil, black pepper a little ginger, sea salt and a dash of cinnamon add lemon/lime juice and a dash of your favorite vinegar. This is great on meat and is also nice when coated with sesame seeds.

  377. megan hughes

    I use the food processor to make your butter almond cookies, from your website, not in the wonderful cookbook. I just dump everything into the bowl, pulse a few times and voila! They are the easiest cookies ever. I make them into logs and refrigerate or freeze and then just slice and bake. They are a favorite of my piano students. Megan Hughes

  378. Kendra

    I think dough’s are a fantastic thing to make in a food processor. Easy and consistent.

  379. Taca

    Oh would love to win this, don’t have a food processor. I would make pie dough, breads, spreads, pesto, etc. Anything that can be made with a food processor would be on my list.

  380. Alicia

    I have 2 favorites, gluten and dairy free morning glory muffins and a version of KFC coleslaw. Luckly my food processor (that is on its last leg) is 12 cups and can hold the 2 heads of cabbage!

  381. Marjorie Hill

    I find the fig newtons a most interesting recipe – with very nutritional ingredients. I would not of thought of making my own fig newtons, until I read the recipe in the Gluten Free Almond Flour Cookbook.

  382. Laraine Hadley

    I would like a food processor to do the things that my Vita-mix does not do well i.e. shredding vegs for cole slaw or salad. I used to have a food processor, but it wore out. Thanks!

  383. ann

    Wow! Looks great. I would love to make pesto and numerous other things.

  384. Joy

    The Cuisinart looks awesome! I like the Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies – lots of chocolate is always good!

  385. Dawn M

    I don’t have a food processor, but I would LOVE to make Hummus!

  386. Deanna

    Grain-free chicken biscuits and grain-free peanut butter pancakes are my favs!

  387. Eileen

    Wow, would have to be my pal Adele’s Basil Pesto. I love that fresh basil, olive oil, garlic, parmesan, nuts and a dash of parsley can make something so wonderfully tasty- and gluten-free! It is a treat on gluten-free pasta and Adele also recommends it with fish or to flavor soups. Yum!

  388. Melinda Carlson

    I just found your site recently, and I’m excited to get in the kitchen this weekend to try some of your recipes! I would also love a chance at a bigger Cusinart food processor! Thanks for sharing your recipes with us.

  389. Corey

    My favorite recipe to make in a Cuisinart is charoset. Can’t wait until Passover!

  390. Paula Hrynik

    Elena – hard to choose a favorite, but that mustard lime cicken practically sings from grill to plate! Of course, the double chocolate brownies are fabulous too – can’t wait for Lent to end – gave up chocolate for Lent! What was I thinking??? I love, love that you are generous in sharing GF recipes – sometimes being creative while providing GF fare is tough, but I can always count on you to nudge me along to better eating. Hope we bump into each other in this gorgeous foothills town some day! Thanks – Paula

  391. pie crust comes together really easily in a food processor. Hummus and other bean dips are fast in there too. Thanks for having the giveaway!

  392. Allegra Heidelinde

    I use a food processor to make my own nut flours, that way they are fresh, room temperature and I don’t have to worry about freezing them.

    Other favorite things to do in a food processor are: tahini salad dressing (combines all ingredients easily), pesto (I make mine dairy free), and cookie dough! (I fold in the goodies later).

    Thanks Elana,

  393. wendy w

    hello elana, thanks for your fantastic recipes! we’d love to have a food processor. if we had one i’d make mock mashed potatoes (w/cauliflower instead of potatoes, oil, salt, pepper and almond flour to thicken), we’d shred and dehydrate veggies for use in soups (onion, bell pepper, carrot, celery), pureed baby foods, slicing fresh veggies, slicing apples for making dehydrated cinnamon chips, bulk shredding and freezing veggies, etc. thanks for offering this giveaway! wendy

  394. Audrey J

    My favorite processor recipe is Cranberry Almond Slaw. It takes a large processor to be able to make this in one batch.

  395. Arlyn

    I would LOVE to win this food processor!!! I currently have a really tiny one in which hardly anything fits so I mainly used it to make my son his baby food.Thanks for the opportunity!!

  396. We love making hummus in our food processor. We make the garbanzo beans in a pressure cooker. We use fresh lime instead of lemon. We also add lots of cumin and gently chop in roasted red peppers once the hummus is really smoooooooth.

    Thanks for the great website and recipes and the chance to win!

  397. Matt

    I love making homemade nut butters with a food processor. I LOVE me some almond butter!

  398. oh man, I really need this food processor! I have just recently decided I need a “real” processor to replace the cheap little chopper I have been using to process. I tried making one of your brownie recipes in my chopper, but it just wasn’t big enough! I also love making grain-free granola!

  399. Stefanie rohman @ Www.stefanierohman.org

    I would LOVE LOVE to win one. My current one is horrible…my blender actually works better. Sad, I know! But my favorite recipe is Italian tilapia with my own roasted red pepper pesto on top. I also make a mean sun dried tomato pesto for pasta!!


    Oy! I managed to send my comment before I was finished… Sorry!

    So, suffice it to say… I LOVE these brownies, and they are delish. (Even if I don’t win the cuisinart–I say, YOU gotta try them!)

    They originally come from a raw foodie in southern cal, but I have added the toasting of the walnuts (raw isn’t always my deal)…. and I have added the cardamom, sometimes even crushed lavender or orange peel is yummy… The coconut milk is added only if you need a little extra moisture (and didn’t soak your dates). Oh, and I also added the hempseed. I’m a vegetarian… so I complete my protein whenever possible.

    So, not to take full credit, the “core” of this came from SoCal… and I have modified in my kitchen in Oregon (in my tiny little chopper)… The raw foodie I got it from was, of course, all raw, and no spices, hemp, or coconut milk… but all these ingredients are what bring out its highest potential — in my opinion, of course :)

    I always put a sweet little slice of date on the top and sprinkle with coconut powder (which is ANOTHER AMAZING way to use the food processor–by taking coconut flakes– Bob’s RedMill’s big flakes are my favorite b/c they are unsweetened and perfect.

    Sorry for the addendum to my comment :)

    Have an awesome day… and thanks for the opportunity to share!

    Love, Britt

    I love my food processor but it’s a small one so i have to divide and quarter recipes…I would love to have a 12-cup processor! Right now I am into using my processor to shred vegetables like jicama, carrots and squash for latkes and cauliflower for faux rice and mashed potatoes! As always, thanks for all you do here on your website!

  402. Marcy

    I would love a nice food processor like that as I would be able to make all sorts of yummy things. What I would love to make is a refreshing vinegarette salad dressing.

  403. Gabby

    I wish I had one–I’d use it for all the little things that are harder w/o one, like chopping nuts, pureeing fruit, and chopping veggies for salads, etc. I’d love one!

  404. Jamie Amos

    I tried Sesame Dip recipe. I was looking for a dip that did not have dairy and I could have with my raw veggies. It was easy to make using a food processer. I practiced on my sister who is my taste taster. She gave it two thumbs up and we ate all my celery and carrots because we couldn’t stop eating it. I made another batch and took it to my lunch friends at work. Everyone enjoyed my humble offerings. I directed them to your website and showed them your Almond Flour cookbook. They have enjoyed many of the recipes from your book and website in which I use both the blender and food processor. They are more that willing to try my ‘alternative’ cooking. Thank you for the great recipes.

  405. Kim

    KIMCHI!!!!! I’ve been hand chopping 12 quart batches of cabbage, carrot, garlic and ginger for the past year and dreaming of a food processor every time! Plus various pestos with herbs and greens from my garden, homemade Larabars, frozen fruit treats for the kids…..

  406. Sandra Garcia

    My favorite thing to make in a food processor is salsa.

  407. Laurie P.

    My old Hamilton Beach processor bit the dust several years ago and I have been slicing , dicing, chopping, mincing with a chef’s knife ever since. Ask me how long that takes! Just think how easy simple GF bread crumbs would be to make in this lovely accessory. Of course I would love this addition to my kitchen. Eleana, your recipes are the best! Thanks!

  408. Nicole Ames

    I am looking to purchase a new food processor so this would be a fantastic treat! I have a difficult time chopping due to some medical issues so a food processor is a key piece of kitchen equipment for me.

  409. Kristin

    I would like to have some type of Cuisinart blender or food processor to be able to make all kinds of soup. This year, i have absolutely fallen in love with soup!

  410. Mara Grigsby @ simplymara.blogspot.com

    I don’t know how I would get along with a food processor. One of my favorite recipes that I use it for is my homemade hummus. I have an older one, though, so getting a brand new one would be absolutely lovely.

  411. TLO

    My favorite thing to make with my very old, very tiny processor is lacto-fermented salsa. I have the best recipe *ever*! I would love a new processor that would hold more and enable me to make salsa in fewer batches.

  412. Kathy Tisthammer

    I am looking forward to making the Chocolate Cranberry Power Bars in the food processor!!

  413. Hello Elana!

    There are so many recipes I love that require a food processor, unfortunately I don’t have one so I have to use my mini-blender which doesn’t work very well and takes a long time for me to get chunks out manually stopping every so often with a spoon to scrape down the sides and try again.

    A few of my absolute favorite ones are:

    Gluten Free Bread Crumbs – I have a gluten free bread recipe that I came up with which really tastes amazing, even people who turn their nose up at gluten-free foods seem to really enjoy it! I should mention that I cut back the amount of vinegar in the recipe to 2 tsps instead of a tbsp and it comes out even better, here’s a link to the recipe: http://www.food.com/recipe/easy-grain-free-bread-ready-in-35-minutes-444065

    Spinach Pate – sauteed purple onions, with baby spinach, garlic, olive oil, and sea salt – really a delicious spread for crackers! I can’t remember where I found this recipe but I think it was on a raw website, sorry if anyone knows the link I’d like to give the creator credit! This is the closest version I could find to it online: http://www.culinate.com/recipes/collections/Culinate+Kitchen/Starters/Spinach+P%C3%A2t%C3%A9+with+Walnuts

    Banana, Walnut, Date, Wild Rice Breakfast – I invented this last month and it’s now one of my favorite breakfasts. I had it today in fact although my blender really struggled this time around looks like I’m gonna need a new one of those soon too! lol So for this recipe you puree all the ingredients – I use soaked raw wild rice – it has such a unique and delicious flavor and texture – although today I only had leftover cooked brown rice and that fit the bill in a pinch! Here’s a link to the recipe I posted just the other day: http://www.food.com/recipe/banana-date-walnut-breakfast-452574?ref=nf

    Homemade whipcream – simply delicious and easy – just cream, a little organic powdered sugar, and a dash of vanilla! Mmmm!

    So thanks for posting this contest, I wish the best to all who enter and I hope that your readers enjoy some of the recipes I have shared! Have a nice day! :)

    Although I use my food processor for many things, one of my favorites is for chopped liver which I will be making shortly for Pesach..I slowly cook the onions for hours until they caramelize and then after cooking the livers, I throw the onions, livers and hard boiled eggs in the processor with seasonings and like magic, I have the best ‘chopped’ liver…

  415. Rebecca Parmer

    I love my mini-processor for salsa and hummus :)

  416. Well… i would use it now for yummy dishes for the hubby and myself but considering we just found out we are pregnant I would put it to good usein the future for making fresh baby food. It is something my husband and I feel strongly about, feeding our baby natural fresh and mostly organic! This would be a step in the right direction!

  417. Susan Bartlow

    I can’t wait to try the mashed cauliflower recipe that I can’t make very well with my potato masher or mixer. I have a food processor on my wish list! My DIL makes it with a food processor that is to die for!!!!!!!!!!
    Thanks for entering me in the drawing,
    Susan Bartlow

  418. judith roston freilich @ judithrostonfreilich.home.comcast.net

    I’ve been making latkes with my food processor for almost 40 years, but in that time my family has grown and with four children plus spouses and kids, it takes forever to make enough batches of potatoes in my 40 year old Cuisinart. Although I’m attached to my machine, it would nice to have one that fits the size of my family!

    I always look forward to your blog!

    judy freilich

  419. Emily


  420. I would definitely make pureed soups!

  421. Heather

    My favorite recipe using a cuisinart is cauliflower mash! I served it for new years and THEN told everyone it wasn’t potato! They loved it!!

  422. I have been making baby food in my tiny Cuisinart (with a broken blade no less) for my 9 month old… I have had a new one on my “wish list” for a while!!

  423. Nancy

    I would love to win the Cuisinart!!

  424. Lacey

    My favorite is my butternut squash soup. Its delicious but, I use a blender, so its very time-consuming. I would make it so much more often if I had such a beautiful food processor!

  425. Heather

    I would love to try your stuffed mushrooms recipe!! Mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes…two of my very favorite things!!!!

  426. Amber

    So hard to choose which recipe! I use my food processor to make my signature creamy guacamole, but what I also love to use it for is to make dog food. I put meat, veggies, kelp, garlic and rosemary covered with water in the crockpot and let it cook all day while I’m at work. Once I come home I transfer the bulk of the it with a little bit of the water into my ancient Cuisinart and let it whirl into a puree. I use this to top off his dry food along with the left over broth to give him that extra umph of nutrition. He loves it and I love my Cuisinart (which I bought 5 years ago at a yard sale for $10), it may be old but it keeps on keeping on.

  427. Breanna

    Oreo Balls
    Use a food processor to crush a whole package of Oreo cookies into fine crumbs. Mix with 1 pkg cream cheese.
    Roll mixture into 1/2″ to 1″ diameter balls.
    Melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips with 1t vegetable oil.
    Dunk oreo balls in melted chocolate and arrange on baking tray. Let dry or freeze.

  428. Jeannette

    Jelly Donut Cupcakes all the way! I have an old German food processor that I will use till it dies.

  429. Mmmmm….lots and lots of pesto!!!!

  430. My favorite recipe is “charosis” for Passover. Nothing but a food processor can so easily and quickly chop the nuts and apples to make this holiday favorite.

  431. Melissa Walker

    I don’t yet own a processor but I borrowed one from a friend this past fall to help with canning. I made tons of salsa and even used it to chop up zucchini to prepare for freezing. Very handy, I must say.

  432. Sonya Basseri

    Love this website!

  433. Shannon

    It is hard to choose but it would have to be the almond bars with the chocolate on top, sooooo yummy and even my daughter eats them.

  434. Susan Glickman

    I’m so glad I came across your web-site. Cooking gluten free can be very challenging, but everything I’ve found in your recipes you make it very easy to follow. Have not added a food processor to my kitchen yet… looks like it would save some steps on things. Thank you for educating people with food allergies.

  435. Lisa Duetsch

    Pesto from my garden!

  436. Maureen

    All of those sound great! I love making artichoke dip recipe :)

  437. Linda

    I’d make Summer Hummus! :)) MMMMMM!

  438. Cari Jenson

    I would make lots of guacamole!

  439. Tisha Anderson

    If I had a food processor, my first dish would be homemade bouillon and after that I would make hummus.

  440. Vickilynn Haycraft @ realfoodliving.com



    I love making HUMMUS!!! YAY!

    Thanks for the giveaway!


  441. Nancy Vinson

    I love to make hummus and slicing up vegetables for my 7 layer salad. The food processor makes preparing the veggies so easy. Here’s hoping for a new food processor. Thanks

  442. Tess Moore

    I don’t know where to start….. I would make lots and lots of stuff that I have found on your site as well as others. You have so many good ones that I would start with the deserts (puddings, sweet sauces, cookie dough)first, and then work my way to snacks (crackers, dips, bars), then probably on to breakfast items……ummmm!

  443. Mary

    I would make my own Larabars or Organic Food Bars. They are SO expensive to buy. I just drool over your recipes! It would be fabulous to have the machine to make them in!

  444. Jamee

    I’d like to grind my own nutbutters and flours. That would save me money.

  445. Upon immediate arrival of the food processor I think I would have to make some applesauce! And then I would probably make some pesto or salsa! And then power bars! Yumm!

  446. Michelle

    Basil pesto, hands down.

  447. Erron Dawson

    Wow! I could make so many more wonderful things with a Cuisinart! And it would save so much time with the recipes I do make now by beating ingredients into submission… My family had been very sick for several years with no answers. We finally found out we had toxic mold poisoning. We can not eat any “conventional foods” as they cause severe reactions. Your book ‘Almond Flour Cookbook’ was our first glimmer of hope to some normalcy. We have made so many things… the Pizza is my daughters favorite and her friends love it too! We are still learning, getting healthy, and trying new things all the time. What would I make… where to start… homemade almond paste and milk, organic veggie split pea soup properly (my husbands fav), banana muffins, pumpkin pie, triple batches of the your pancakes all at once instead of 3 rounds in my tiny blender on Sunday morning! And so many more… We love your recipes and your education that goes with them. Thank you for your hard work:)

  448. Susan

    Salsa…and lots of it (o:

  449. Reema

    Your website is fabulous I can’t wait to try the chocolate hazelnut recipie:)

  450. Kathy

    I make green smoothies to always have on hand in the freezer. When I feel I haven’t had enough vegetables and fruits I have one of them. I also love soups using a processor or blender.

  451. Adriana Zupa-Fernandez

    Currently, I use the blender for this recipe, but a food processor would certainly make it easier and better (in terms of texture) …
    I just sort of eyeball everything, and if I have extra dried fruit on hand, I’ll often add that too …
    Healthy Almond Pumpkin Truffles
    In the processor — Combine almond slivers, pumpkin, apple juice, vanilla extract, agave, and pecans.
    Roll into balls and place in freezer.
    Next, melt dark chocolate.
    Remove the chilled pumpkin almond balls from the freezer and dip in melted chocolate.
    Place the truffles on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and place in fridge until hardened.
    Easy, healthy, and delicious!

  452. Rachel

    A family fav is your amazing coconut flour chocolate cake! I have sent the recipe link to so many friends and they cannot believe that it’s gluten free! I would love to see more coconut flour recipes. I have a mini food blender so to win a fancy Cuisinart would send me in to a cooking frenzy. Love it!

  453. Karen Martwick

    I just discovered your blog and would love a new food processor to help me try all the delicious-sounding bar recipes! Getting more and more into the paleo diet and looking for wholesome, homemade snacks. Your site is awesome!

  454. Anne B.

    Hummus is my favorite! Thanks for the chance to win!

  455. Crystal Dodson

    I love to make raw nut butters with my food processor. A big 12 cup cuisinart would be amazing!

  456. Amanda

    I would love to try making the raw applesauce with a new food processor! It has always been difficult to justify purchasing one with my tight budget and small studio apartment. But I would love one, as I’m sure 1000 people would as well!

  457. Rachel H

    Gazpacho! Perfect summertime recipe but just too much work to chop it all up by hand!!

  458. Nancy Johnson

    Love the recipe for mashed cauliflower (potatoes)…I make it all the time on my very old food processor! Just delicious!

    Thank you.

  459. Cheryl

    Lots of GF protein bars!

  460. Sheryl Lea

    My husband loves fig newtons and I am trying to introduce him to healthier, but tasty food. So, I think that I would try your fig newton recipe…sounds yummy!!!

  461. Nicole W.

    Too many recipes to mention. But by far my favorite is to make baby food. I love feeding my lil ones fresh baby food. I would love a bigger food processor. I have never tried any type of dough in a food processor. It would be interesting!

  462. Sandra

    I am new to your web site and also new to almond flour – just love the almond flour. Have just recently started using coconut flour and love using that along with the almond flour. If I were to win the Cuisinart Food Processor I think I might start with the Gluten Free and Vegan Fig Newtons.

  463. I LOVE making fresh salsa in a food processor. But I would try so many more things if I actually had a good one! I hope I win!!!

  464. Christine Schneider

    I would love to win the Cuisinart in order to make homemade chocolate hazelnut spread. It HAS to be so much better than the stuff in the jar.
    There are so many recipes that I would love to make with the spread.
    Thank you Elana for all the fantastic recipes that you post, I love your blog!

  465. Kay

    Carrot cake! I use my Cuisinart to shred the carrots. Mine is an old model and I have a crack in the bowl. Just started researching the new models to decide which to get.

  466. Venessa

    Wow! A larger food processor would be so helpful. I have a smaller one. My favorite thing to make in the food processor is fresh hummus. I prefer the texture over using other methods.

  467. Sara

    My two favorite things to make with a food processor are basil pesto and peanut butter- neither of which I have made since the box that had my food processor was lost in our last move :( I’d love a new one!

  468. Austin West

    i love hummus

  469. I’d make hummus! I adore hummus and can’t find a store brand that I love.

  470. I love Fig Newton’s and making them GF in a food processor would be the best!

  471. Jill Goldberg

    Hummus! Hummus is definitely the number one item that my food processor helps me create- always a little different each time, but always delicious, especially with many varieties of almond flour crackers. I have an old, sad, little food processor that I was given as an engagement gift sixteen years ago and I drool at the thought of what I could do with a Cuisinart….

  472. Stephanie Bennett

    I abscolutely LOVE food processors. The one that I currently own is a “hand-me down” that I recieved as a gift from a family friend. It is ten years old and the cap no longer fits so I have to use a plate to keep my contents inside. Needless to say my food processor shows signs of being very loved over the years! My favorite recipes to make with it are sweet potato pancakes, fresh salsa, fruit and vegetable puree for baby foods, etc. If I were to win a new food processor I would be so excited! I have a ton of new recipes that I would love to try, but my current processor just doesn’t have the power to handle the amount of vegetable matter anymore. ps I LOVE LOVE LOVE the elana’s pantry blog, it is so nice to be able to eat healthy and not feel like I or my friends and family are missing out on any delcicousness. Thanks for posting and giving me fresh ideas for tasty treats! :)

  473. Amy J.

    Flourless Chocolate Cake!!

  474. My poor old-school food processor definitely needs a replacement. This would be lovely!

  475. I dropped the bowl of my FP and though the handle broke off, it still works. I use it every day. Favorite thing to make–oh, so many things!
    I do love one ingredient banana ice cream.
    Take frozen banana chunks and let them rip in the FP until it becomes the most amazing creamy ice cream. Add any toppings you’d like and you have one great sundae!

  476. Leah

    I have so many things I like to make in a food processor, but my favorite is lacto-fermented salsa. Such a quick job in a food processor and full of probiotics, its delicious and a superfood!

  477. domestic diva

    I like making salsa in my food processor

  478. Linda

    What an amazing giveaway, wow. I just started shopping for a processor in fact, and seeing what I’ve been missing out on!

    I would probably start out with the mashed cauliflower recipe. I’ve tried it by hand, and there’s a bit to be desired in the texture. :) Nut butters are high on my list too. So curious to jump in to all the possibilities!


  479. Wendy

    I have been loving your site and use it to help a young friend who is transitioning to GF. I love using The Machine to make pesto most of all (ah, the scent!) as well as almond orange cake!!!

  480. I LOVE making kelly’s (from the spunky coconut) chicken meatballs. They are fantastic!

  481. Joni Roberts

    I would make salsa, probably every other day if I had a food processor! And I would try more cooking, if I didn’t have to manually slice and dice everything!

  482. Robin Parker

    I love making gluten-free, refined sugar-free custard pie with white beans. Right now I have to halve the recipe and make it in two batches since I only have a tiny old 2-cup food processor. What a relief it would be to be able to make recipes like that all in one batch.

  483. 4kiddos

    I love to shred veggies in a food processor to make a raw cole slaw or to make fermented kimchee.

  484. Sheryl Shantz

    I don’t have a food processor but I am always checking them out at the store when I go. There are so many to choose from and I am not sure what it is I should be looking for so I go home empty handed. One of the things I would love to have a processor for is to make my own fresh, no preservative Hummus! I have tried with the magic bullet and it never makes a smooth hummus. I end up finishing it with a fork but it is still very lumpy.
    Another great use for me would be to finely chopped vegatables to hide in spaghetti sauce I make the kids or your chicken balls.

  485. Sheila

    I purchased your Almond Flour book and have loved every recipe that I have made.

  486. thanks for all the gluten free recipes. My son has to eat gluten free. Processors are wonderful. What did they ever do with out them.
    Linda in IN\

  487. Darlene McKeen @ mckeenfamily.wordpress.com

    I do not currently have a food processor. This would be a great addition to my kitchen! I would love to start by making either your raw applesauce (yum!) or your cracker recipe.

  488. Alana

    I love making larabar type bars or “Fudge Babies” with my lil bitty food processor

  489. crosado

    One of my favorite things to make with a food processor is pesto, sometimes i throw in some walnuts or brasil nuts to change it up a little bit.

  490. Jody Hurst

    If I won the cusinart I would make the hazelnut chocolate spread first. Oh how I miss nutella! Then I would make the salmon with anchovy and olive tapenade. :)

  491. I’d like to make my own Larabars with a food processor.

  492. Kirsten

    If I had a food processor, I would make kransekake. It’s a traditional Norwegian recipe my mom used to make for special occasions when we were growing up. Typically they make them at weddings, but the cake is made mostly of almonds which you do in the food processor, mixed with egg whites, and a bit of sugar (I’m sure you could substitute agave nectar here, although I have yet to try it). The dough is molded into rings each of a different size and then they are stacked on top of one another. It is a beautiful recipe!

  493. Jenny

    ALL sorts of pesto….basil, cilantro, parsley, sundried-tomato….I’d be able to experiment with so much!

  494. janice fritsch

    I would make your homemade power bars, which I now make in the Vitamix.

  495. Anna Visscher @ tartique.com

    Oooh…. tough to decide which one thing I’d make with it. Probably pesto. I have a tiny little food processor attachment for my immersion blender and making pesto with it always turns into a comedy of errors. I have to shove shove shove the basil leaves down into the tiny little cup, hope they don’t all spring back up, flinging olive oil around, and then scrape the green goo out usually dropping half somewhere on me or the floor or the counter. I have to make it in small batches, so repeat the above 5 or 6 times… it exhausts me just thinking about it! I’d also grind nuts with it, make other sauces, oh the possibilities are endless.

  496. Christy @ jinxyisms.com

    I make graham crackers for my daughter with a food processor. They are so much more tastey and better for you then store bought.

  497. Amanda

    Any sort of biscuit dough or pie crust.

  498. Dawn

    I would love to have a food processor for making hummus, “frozen banana ice cream”, and pesto… as well as other yummy healthy stuff. Thanks for the recipes you post!

  499. Jeanne

    I freeze cranberries and would make a cranberry relish–delish all year round!!

  500. Selina

    Winning this would be amazing!!! I’ve been lusting after Cuisinart :)

  501. Freed Willie

    How sweet it is to make your Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies in a food processor!

    Food processor also works great to sift my Honeyville Almond Flour if it gets too lumpy. :)

  502. I used to make hummus and mix bread dough a lot in my food processor, but lately I use it most to make almond meal, nut butters, and for other chopping needs.

  503. catherine

    I love to make black soy bean brownies in the food processor. Even teenagers gobble them up.

  504. Janet

    There are several recipes I’d love to try using the food processor, like the shrimp cakes, the salmon with anchovy olive tapenade, the mashed cauliflower and the double chocolate brownies.

  505. Neomi

    Hi Elana… I love your page.. I hope you’ve gotten my gluten free cookie recipes vie sent :)

    My award winning processor recipe would be chocolate ‘ mousse’ made with soft tofu :)
    1 bag of chocolate chips processor with a cup of boiling water

    Whirl whirl whirl…
    And a container of soft tofu or toffuti cream cheese .. Or regular cream cheese ( that’s what the original recipe said but I never tried it) and whirl whirl whirl… Add a little coffee or vanilla if your taste buds tell you to :) put in the fridge and allow it to set a little… Yummy serve with half defrosted raspberries sprinkled with a little sugar or with strawberries :)

    My processor of 20 years broke a few months ago and I want to make for my kiddies the things they love… Olive dip.. Schug… Chummus….

    All the best :) thank you for a great page!,

  506. Julie Uehlein

    My favorite thing would be to make homemade salad dressings :)

  507. Since we’re on the intro phase of the GAPS diet, it seems like I use my food processor for EVERYTHING. But I guess if I have to pick one recipe, I would say the grain-free crackers from homehealthhappy.com’s grain free menu plans. Sunflower seeds, garlic, salt. Perfect!

    What a wonderful giveaway! I’d love to replace my current machine which is broken, with something that works!

    I use to make all sorts of things – but one of the ones I miss the most is chopped broccoli for cream of broccoli soup.

  509. Rita

    Pesto! During the summer I raise a variety of basils and parsley. While I use my ancient (18 years old) food processor for making gluten free crusts for my cheesecakes, I love using it for making pesto. The aroma of the basil, parmesan cheese, toasted pine nuts and evoo is intoxicating.

  510. Sharon Gartley

    I don’t have a food processor. I have been pricing them but good ones that will do what I need are just too expensive at this point. There are so many things I would do with it, but my biggest reason for wanting one, beyond daily food preparation, is to prepare food from my garden this summer, both for fresh use and for preserving.

    Thank you,

  511. Helen Raborn

    I would love love love to have a Cuisinart food processor. First recipe I would try would be the Gluten Free Multi “Grain” Crackers or maybe the brownies. Yum!!!!! Pick me please!!!

  512. Kris

    I would love to try to make your carrot banana muffin recipe with that new food processor! I recently came across your site, and feel so inspired by all of your delicious recipes!

  513. Lori

    I’ve never had a food processor, so I’ve been without homemade pesto. I’ve always wanted to try it, and my Magic Bullet just doesn’t cut it.

  514. Karin

    My most favourite recipe using a food processor is a “vegetable pie” which is made with a rice or quinoi base mixed with yummy spices. This is topped with a homemade tepenade which can be like a pizza sauce- I then load on the cut up veggies and cover with a “cheezy” sauce made from nutritional yeast and cashews. It can be changed so many ways and is a very satisfying dish! I make it so much that I am wearing out my current food processor and could really use a new one!
    Love this website and I am so grateful for all your recipes! Thanks

  515. Cheri Robbins

    Every Hannukah I use my food processor to grate potatoes for potato latkes. It’s so much easier than hand grating them.

  516. We have one sturdy food processor that has put in good service over the years, but with three other burgeoning and growing chefs in our kitchen, we sure could use another! Our favorite GF dish to make in our food processor is garlic Parmesan GF bread crumb topping with just enough olive oil and garlic – fast, easy and great with fish or chicken! If we had a new food processor, we’d use it exclusively for GF food prep, since my Gluten sensitivity is enough that even using non-GF ingredients causes me problems. Love your site and your dedication to yummy, GF cooking!

  517. Karen Lemburg

    I’m so excited about your giveaway! I’ve never had a food processer and have missed out on some great recipes because of not having one. I’ve looked at them everytime we’re in the stores, but They’ve been something that is a want and not a need, so it gets pushed back to the back burner. I’m sure after I have one I’ll wonder how I ever managed without it!

    Thank you for the chance to win!


  518. Roberta Thomas

    I LOVE a food processor to make fresh hummus. Everything is so fresh and fast with food processors. I too love my vitamix and they are BOTH priceless in my kitchen.

  519. Marla Pisegna

    I can ‘t believe you are giving one of these away as a contest! That is truly amazing.
    I must first start by saying I LOVE LOVE LOVE Your RECIPES!
    You are an AMAZING CHEF!!!!
    My old Processor is a braun and well now all the attachments are finished. I use my processor all the time making:
    – hummus
    -your pesto
    – your version of nutella
    – your chocolate expresso POWER BARS

    I make fresh nut spread every TUESDAY Morning…
    I use it for cawliflower rice, pizza dough

    I bought this exact one for my father for XMAS and now I have the ITALIAN CHEF making gluten free PIZZA! He has a large 3 acre garden and well he can’t wait to make all of his pesto and tomato sauce with his new cuisinart.
    If we had two we could make so much more….

    Thanks again for this opportunity.

  520. Neomi

    Oh boy and black bean brownies.. Also gluten free.. Yummy.. From the agave cookbook… Oh and strawberry ‘ice cream’. If you want any recipes ask me :)!!

  521. Stephanie

    When I pull out my food processor I am usually making pesto.

  522. kate lynde

    A friend of mind from Boulder just recently turned me on to your fabulous website. This week i made the bliss bars in my food processor. They were utterly divine and i had to share them with meditating friends. I love the ayurvedic focus of this sweet treat and even added a dash of cayenne! I also made the chocolate chipe almond cookies for a friend for her birthday..a stellar hit! I am so glad you are creating these sugar free, gluten free treats of us!! Big appreciation, to you Elana!!

  523. Quinlyn

    My favorite recipe with a food processor by far is the Chocolate Cranberry Power bars. However, my teeny tiny processor forces me to chop such small batches, it takes me forever to chop the pecans! With the Cuisinart, I would be blazing through! I would make this recipe at least once a week!!!

  524. Cassi Friz @ cassifriz.com

    I had a food processor for a brief period.
    We made hummus-
    chickpea hummus
    raw vegan hummus
    and then someone broke my machine trying to make hummus.

    i no longer make hummus.

    the other thing i loved to make was raw date brownies-
    dates, almonds or walnuts, cocoa powder and a touch of vanilla
    and power bars of any flavor and sort

    those are things i haven’t made since the demise of my food processor. i dream of a vitamix someday, and a nice food processor. especially as baby number four is due any day now, and i know how useful this device is!!!


  525. Vicki Gedge

    My favourite is definitely your original power bars, my non-GF husband and friends absolutely love them too! Though my food processor is just an attachment for my hand blender, so I have to make the bars in batches, a proper food processor would be wonderful :)

  526. I’d have to vote for the choco-hazel above, but I also remember using my old food processor for a divine red velvet cake using beets a while back :-) Miss my cuisineart!!!!!!

  527. Maureen Wheeler @ itsallconnectedliving.com

    This is my dream! I have an old, small food processor that seems to be more of a bother than an asset, so I thought that I didn’t like using one. Last Monday I was cooking lunch at our Waldorf High School and used someone else’s Cuisinart Food processor to shred 5 lbs of cheese for topping the organic chili I was making. (I was going to shred by hand with a box grater – I thought it would take the better part of an hour to complete. Instead it was about 5 minutes with no sore arm!) I cannot even put into words how shocking and fabulous that experience was! I cook all of the time, for my family, for my children’s school, I do gluten free cooking demos professionally,and I teach cooking classes – I can’t believe I have not had one of these amazing machines. This machine is a gem!

  528. Susan R

    Ooooh, if I had this Cuisinart in my kitchen, I’d love to make your Cinnamon Apple Cake.

  529. I love making Hummus with mine, but mine also bit the dust, so its been a while. I’ve been using a blender or immersion blender, but there is nothing like a good food processor!

  530. Janet Hirsch

    I love my Cuisinart! I have had one since my son was 2, he is now 40. I am a devoted fan of this wonderful food processor. I use it almost everyday and always have. I always have kept it out on my counter no matter where I lived. We have even used it to mix dog food for our beloved dog. I would love the new one, but it is very expensive and I live on a fixed income, so I can’t buy it.

  531. Amanda

    My favorite thing to make in my food processor is definitely gluten free cookies. But, I am dying to try your gluten free granola-sounds delish!
    I love your blog and cookbook. Thanks for all your ideas and delicious recipes. They have made going gluten free/primal so easy.

  532. Jess

    Nom nom nom, I use my tiny 3 cup food processor for your pumpkin bars all the time. It’s kind of a pain cause I have to make it in batches since my food processor is so small :(

  533. My favorite recipe is the chocolate hazelnut spread. I love hazelnut. :) Thank you for the opportunity to win the food processor.

  534. Heather

    I really like to make homemade Almond Butter. Yum.

  535. Tish @ deleted

    I would make hummus! Thanks so much Elana!

  536. Sandy Erxleben

    I have been wanting a food processor for years now, just haven’t been able to decide on which one! The first recipe I would make would have to be the double chocolate walnut brownies!

  537. debbie kuritza

    I would love this food processor we use to make almond butter with ours, pestos, hummus the kids ask when can we get a new one
    They know my answer by now budget budget

  538. Eva K,

    Bread dough would be my #1! I have a food processor now but it is cheap and not very powerful, and many doughs are too stiff for it to manage.

  539. Lauren Christine.

    i love making mashed cauliflower in my food processor! they taste like real mashed potatoes!

  540. Lacey Kirk

    If I had a food processor I would make Salsa, your recipe for Espresso Power bars, try all kinds of exciting recipes found here, and most importantly Paleo friendly Baby Food for our newest little one!

  541. Robin R.

    Oh fun! I would love a Cuisinart Food Processor for making our GFCFSFCF homemade nut butters! We are a busy gluten-free, casein-free, soy-free homeschooling family of four kiddos. This neat kitchen asset would save us LOTS o’ time :)
    Thanks for this great opportunity, and keep up the good work. We love your almond flour cookbook!!!

  542. Jennifer

    I would love to use it to make your Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies

  543. I too have an older food processor … it was a wedding gift 19.5 years ago. Pesto is my favorite use for it. Thanks!

  544. Alice Krause

    my favorite food processor recipe is a tapenade made with black olives and roasted red peppers

  545. Karen H.

    Right now I have a very wimpy processor that can’t do much, so I end up doing most things by hand. If I won this, wow, I would be able to use it all the time with so many of the things I make. We eat mostly at home, with me cooking most meals from scratch, so this would be a huge benefit to me. Especially when I need to feed a gang of hungry teen-aged boys!

    If I had to pick just one recipe, it would be your fig newtons. Not only do all of us love them, but I have very sweet neighbors who are always doing kind things for me who love them, too. I would easily be able to keep us all stocked up on fig newtons year-round with this!

    Thank you for this great blog and all the fun contests. Your recipes saved my life and brought flavor and fun into a medically-restrictive diet.

  546. Amparo

    Cilantro & spinach pesto!

  547. Kim LeBeau

    Much to my dismay, I don’t own a full-sized food processor, but I do have a miniature one. I love to use it to chop the ingredients for an Olive Oil Dipping Sauce. It is out of this world!

  548. I would definitely use this food processor to make your power bars. Mine is so lame and wimpy the dates just wear it down.

  549. Angela

    Pesto, pesto, pesto!

    and hummus.

  550. Terri Kirkner

    My absolute favorite recipe is Chicken, Bean and Spinach Meatballs. I grind the chicken, grind the almonds, pulse the beans, garlic, spinach, and shred the parmesean in the food processor for this recipe. I use ground almonds instead of bread crumbs in this recipe. These are addictive.

  551. JacQueline @ jacquelinesanchez.com

    I would love to make the jelly donut cupcakes
    Thanks for your wonderful blog

  552. Lynda Clark

    My food Cuisinart processor just died after 15 years so I would love to win this one. I use a food processor for so many things, but my favorite and most often made item is hummus.

  553. Abbie

    My mother has a food processor and when I am at her house I love to use it to make whole wheat pizza dough. It turns out great every time. I would love to be able to make it in my own home with this wonderful food processor you are giving away!

  554. Marsha

    I do not have a food processor……so there are so many things I would make if I had one like pesto, or potato pancakes, or carrot cake and so much more. This is a great giveaway. Thanks for the chance to win.

  555. Sonya

    I would love to make pesto. Thanks for the giveaway. Love your blog..

  556. suzanne menuet

    That’s awesome. I would make all of the above!!

  557. Raeleen

    My favorite recipe to make in the food processor is Natalia Rose’s gazpacho! It’s amazing… and oh so easy!

  558. KS

    I’ve got a really old Cuisinart Processor that I got at a thrift store for $8 and I love it. I would give this to my parents since they don’t own one. My favorite thing to make is a vegan chocolate mousse pie. Yummy!

  559. Kristine

    Homemade lara bars made out of dates, almonds, and all sorts of flavoring additions.

  560. Hummus, hummus and more hummus! All different varieties, of course. Heavy on the tahini. :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  561. Brenda

    I have enjoyed most of the bake goods I have made from Elana’s book and
    blog. Favorite? That is difficult as all are very good.

  562. Terri Mishler

    My food processor died after 35 years (yes, that’s 35 years!!!) of faithful service. It was put to rest about 2 years ago. Since then, I’ve been using my little 2 cup grinder and my heavy duty blender. Needless to say, my creativity has been hampered. Would LOVE to win the Cuisinart!!!

  563. Betty in Az

    If I won the food processor one of the first things I would make is home made fresh salsa with lots of fresh tomatoes, garlic, onions, cilantro etc. I would love to try some of your yummy gluten free recipes as well.

  564. Mary

    This would make a lovely birthday gift for me on April 5th. Thanks for the opportunity. I can already visualize cultured veggies (lots of shredded cabbage and beets, etc.) becoming a breeze to make. My fingers are crossed.

  565. Lisa Daniel

    I am determined to quit letting food processors intimidate me, lol!!

  566. Cynthia

    Cuisinart Food Processor has been on my wish list for some time…my oldie (1981) is getting tired, doesn’t have the power of the new ones. Love to make small batches of raw milk butter and nut butter & all my slicing/chopping for soups, etc. Keeping my fingers crossed! Thanks for all the time and thought you put into this site…love it!

  567. Sheila

    My favorites are mashed cauliflower and kale pesto!

  568. Meagan

    If I had a new Cuisinart, I would use it for everything, including grating cheese for gluten free mac & cheese!

  569. Jorie

    I just happened to stumble upon your website while looking at recipies from the pioneer woman. Many of her recipeis require a food processor and that is one item I am missing from my kitchen! I have been craving these yummy grilled chicken and roasted red pepper paninis with this delicious incredible panini spread that got all jammed up in my blender! A blender is just not the same as a food processor!

  570. Stephanie Eastman

    I have used my old 14 cup Cuisinart for no less than 15 years. I once broke a part on it and it was like having my arms cut off. I would LOVE to get the latest and greatest since my DLC-7 is still the one I am using to death.. but it may be on it’s last leg.

  571. Shirley @ gfe @ glutenfreeeasily.com

    My favorite recipe using my antiquated food processor (much older than 13 years and not a Cuisinart!) is truffles using dates. But the recipe I’d like to make is your healthy Chocolate Hazelnut Butter. :-)


  572. Bonnie Rogers @ bonniesherbals.com

    I thrilled to have found your website. This is exactly the way that I eat and what I recommend to my clients. Your recipes sound delicious and I’m looking forward to making some of them. Thanks for your generosity with them

  573. Bev Bertenshaw

    Wow, my appliance is probably 20 years old (yes, it has been well tended) but with a new one I could pursue a more healthy track of smoothies, raw food combinations and creating gluten-free meals with more ease and versatility. I have made so many of your recipes – I thank you for your vision and commitment. b

  574. Chris Faller

    I would use the Cuisinart food processor to re-create my famous chocolate and beet(root) cake – as well as using it to further my recipes/love/culinary portfolio of beets!

    Please, I’ve just got to win – I’VE JUST GOT TO HAVE THIS FOOD PROCESSOR!

    Thank you.


  575. Jane J

    I can’t remember how I stubbled onto your blog, but love the daily read! I would make the new frozen “Banana Ice Cream” recipe. Sounds so wonderful! I am a closet vegetarian and have been so for over 25 years. I think you have done a lot for people who don’t eat meat! Even those that do. Keep up the good work!

  576. Patty Whiteman

    Would absolutely love to have this. So many recipes I can’t do because I don’t have a food processor.

  577. Ste K

    Jo Stepaniak’s “parmezano sprinkles,” from the Ultimate Uncheese cookbook are my absolute favorite thing to eat that comes from a food processor.

  578. Gillian

    Oh, my Cuisinart is more than 25 years old — some visiting Italian friends had burned out my older one (on of the first models) by stuffing too much cheese into it, and the bowl split! Anyway, I love it for grating and grinding.

    If I was lucky enough to get a new one, I would love to try some items that couldn’t be made by hand, like super high speed whipping.

    Of the recipes you’ve posted above, I would LOVE to make the homemade nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread) — I am sure it is so much more tasty than the store bought version!

    Thank you for your fantastic recipes… I have told several friends about your site and we all cook up new things to try. I really like cooking with coconut flour and almond flour, and I think such foods are so much better for us!

    ~ Gillian

  579. Ashley


  580. Sara D

    I have the mini version and really need the larger food processor for my growing family. Yours was one of the first websites I found when first diagnosed, and has been an encouragement ever since.

  581. Ellie L.

    I would love a new cuisinart!

    I was just told by my doctor that I need to go gluten free, so I am so excited to try your recipes and a new food processor would make the gluten free journey even more fun!

  582. PaleoGirl

    I used to love to make a version of Larabars before my food processor broke. I used about 20 meejol dates, 3/4 cup chopped almonds or pecans, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, 1/8 cup desicated coconut, and 1/2 cup whatever other fruit I have on hand (apples, apricots, strawberry chips, dried cherries or cranberries). Throw it all in the food processor. Smash it into a pan, cool, cut and enjoy.

    Thank you, Elana! Love your recipes.

  583. Kim

    I love to make pesto and fresh salsa using a food processor- makes it so easy and I love how fresh it is. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  584. Paula Decaria @ freelifeglutenfree.com

    I use my food processor to pulverize my chicken for my kid friendly chicken nuggets. :) And, for about anything else I can think of, too.

  585. Eli Sedaghatinia @ Idonthaveoneyet!

    Dear Elana,

    I got hooked to your blog from your book which was given to me as a gift a year ago. my friend who knew how much i liked baking and how much i did not want to use any conventional baking flour bought for me. Up to that point i was just substituting my own combinations of other gluten free flour in original recipes and experimented with different ways of making my baking healthier for me. but your book put a different perspective in what to use instead of flour/sugar/oil. almond flour and grape seed oil. cant be better! also I’m in love with coconut flour and i find you posting recipes using that! I’m in heaven.truly!

    I never had a food processor. Two weeks ago, I wanted to make raw nuts/date/dried fruit truffles and it was way too much work to chop everything by hand manually as i always did.

    long story short….i ended up making the raw truffles to give as gifts to some friends for beginning of spring but it took me hours and hours to do small batched of chopping the dates nut and other dried fruits on my cutting board manually. my point finger got blaster the next day! no fun!
    ( i made four flavor and combinations…..so i chopped lots of dates and figs)

    I really need a food processor so my gluten free life become much productive and easy and so dont have to spend long hours to get things done by hand. (I work part time and am student and buying a good food processor is a bit of stretch for me at this point. my budget for extra expenses is very low this year)

    long story….. but i just wanted to share a bit of my life with you since you are doing lots of sharing with us. thank you for the wonderful recipes. i have made all your cookies and a couple of the cakes from your book so far. and all my friends in the bay area are always so impressed with what i come up with using almond flour!

    eli s.

  586. Yesterday afternoon I made the Chocolate Cranberry Powerbars, and my kids not only love them, but have discovered they like dates (plain) as well! Thank you for the excellence you put into your blog and your recipes: your passion is a blessing to others.

  587. Michele @ BsBags.us

    My favorite recipe using my food processor is pesto with basil I grown in my backyard. Instead of using pine nuts, I’ll use macadamia nuts!!! So yum!

  588. Gina

    I have a recipe for protein bars that calls for using a food processor. I have kept it in my “too make file” for one day when I get one. Would LOVE to win one!!!

  589. Summer Pramer

    Spinach artichoke dip!

  590. Linny Hansen

    Cinnamon Apple Cake…mmmmmm…try it with some craisins!!

  591. Heidi Hughes @ gfindie.blogspot.com

    I love making gluten free/vegan burgers with mine! They are great to make for my family since I have intolerence and they do not. Lately my favorite is Lentil, Walnut, and Basil Burgers! yum!

  592. christine squicciarini

    Nut crusts and dried fruit granola bars. Yum. =)

  593. P Roland

    This is so funny. I’ve had a Kitchen Aid Food Processor for about 15+ years and it’s finally (after SO MUCH use and abuse) having some issues. This couldn’t be better timing. Thanks. As for recipes, I use it for so many. Recently Cauli-Rice (among many other things) has become a favorite. AMAZING recipes…WONDERFUL blog. Thank you so much.

  594. Bonnie Stone

    I can’t think of a favorite recipe right now – I guess because I mostly use my food processor (which is on it’s last leg) to grind nuts and make almond butter. Winning this would be a huge blessing! Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  595. Kandace

    Hi Elana

    I have used one before in making granola/lara-type bars. Unfortunately the one I have is only a mini-size! I could really use a larger one :)
    I would love to win this! I’ve been wanting one for a long time. Thanks for the opportunity!

  596. Elizabeth Bailey

    I like making energy bars out of dates and cashews. SOOO yummy!

  597. stephanie

    squash latkes, almond butter, fruit and nut bars… so many uses for the Cuisinart!

  598. Kaela

    Hummus! It’s super simple, but oh so good!

  599. Desi@thepalatepeacemaker.com @ thepalatepeacemaker.com

    Oh. My. Word. Elana. The moment I saw that the photo of your beautiful Cuisinart staring at me from your homepage, I thought: “THERE is MY ‘Knight in Shining Armor.'” I am still stunned that you are actually giving away a 12-Cup Cuisinart Food Processor – the very one I’ve lusted after for so long!

    What would I make? WHERE DO I EVEN BEGIN?! I think my top priority would be nut and/or seed butters. Oh, but which one?!? This is SOPHIE’S CHOICE – culinary edition! Um… It’s going to have to be a tie: Coconut Macadamia Butter and my favorite treat of all treats (which I’ve been deprived of since going cane-sugar-free, but I’ve got an agave-sweetened version I’ve been waiting years to test out): MARZIPAN. Done.

    Thanks so much for this giveaway, Elana! :o)

  600. Carmen Martinez

    My favorite recipe of Elana’s to use my food processor is the “Starbucks” Orange Cake. Those boiled oranges turn into the most beautiful slush and make a perfect gluten-free treat!

  601. Erica

    I love making puddings and sauces in my food processor!

  602. Gina

    My favorite recipes for a food processor are pesto, olive tapenade, chocolate chip cookie dough,pie crust, chopped vegetables for turkey meatloaf,bolognese sauce, gazspacho, scones, gluten free toasted breadcrumbs, chopped nuts for coating chicken breast or fish before frying, granita, fresh fruit sorbet …I use it for many recipes since I do not have a vita-mix.

  603. Yulia

    For a long time I was looking at Jelly Donut Cupcakes recipe. The only thing I was missing (except of the wonderful Cuisinart) was xylitol. And I bought xylitol yesterday! I’m ready for Cuisinart and Cupcakes now!

  604. Brandae

    I love to make nut butters – almond, peanut, cashew, pecan. I haven’t yet made macadamia or brazil nut but would like to!

  605. My favorite thing to make in the food processor is hummus and raw desserts. The nut crumble is perfect chopped with dates.:D

  606. Virginia Morris

    I love making tomato and roasted red pepper soup, and using the food processor to puree it all once it has cooked. So-o-o quick and easy!

  607. Jennifer @ marriedtoabmw.com

    I would make lots and lots of pesto with basil from my garden.

  608. Patricia Caufield

    My favorite recipe using my food processor is a simple one. Using the small shred blade, shred 1/2 small red cabbage. Add a can of organic mandarin oranges, a chopped organic gala apple, handful of dried cranberries or tart cherries and pecans. Toss with Annie’s Lite Honey Mustard dressing. Let sit for a few hours or over night until the flavors meld and the dried fruit plumps. I tend to cook by color as well as flavor and this is very eye pleasing as well as flavorful.

  609. Carole @ email


  610. Ellen Basile

    Hi Elana,

    I love all you recipes…What would I make with the food processor, good question, what wouldn’t I make!!!
    I have 12 grandkids and love to make all kids of stuff for them.
    This woild just make it easier. :)
    Thanks so much !!

  611. Alexandria Jungkeit

    Although I love to use my food processor for various types of hummous, i use it even more frequently for my simple “mashed cauliflower.” This recipe is a must for the food processor (mine is on it’s last leg). A head of cauliflower (cooked al dente), 1/4 cup melted butter, and 1/3 cup shredded asiago (or parmesean or grano padno etc) and some salt and pepper go into the food processor and are “whipped” up into a beautiful, healthy alternative to mashed potatoes. Mashing the cauliflower yields a completely different texture and it matters so much to our family, it’s hard to eat it without our food processor.

  612. Becky Belting

    I would love to make pesto. It is excellent!

  613. Janice Wolff

    I would love to have the Cuisinart food processor! There are so many recipies that just can’t be made with a blender.

  614. Lisa @ Livanu Wellness @ livanuwellness.com

    I would definitely look to make pesto to serve with veggies! Fresh basil from my little herb garden and lots of yummy garlic :) can’t get better than that.

  615. Neely Wang

    homemade pie crust — yum!

  616. Rindy Leeds

    I would make the yummy mashed calliflower!

  617. Marci DeLisle

    Oooooh, I’d make the Jelly Donut Cupcakes in a minute if I had a Cuisanart. Don’t have a food processor as I’m low income and am spending all my money just trying to eat Gluten Free.

  618. heidi

    fave food processors foods: applesauce, pearsauce, peachsauce, plumsauce, you get the idea… yum

  619. Catherine

    I have many great recipes on my ‘to make’ list, including your cinnamon apple cake and chocolate walnut brownies. I have always needed and wanted a food processor but unfortunately it hasn’t been in the budget! There are so many things I would make such as homemade energy bars with dates and nuts and mashed cauliflower. Thanks so much for this opportunity Elana! This food processor is gorgeous!

  620. Esty

    I love making nut butters in my old food processor. Almond Cashew Butter with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and agave is divine. So is the Chocolate Hazelnut Butter from this website.

    Thank you, Elana! I already loved your recipes and book to prepare healthy meals for my family. I recently found out that I have hypothyroidism, very low vitamin d levels, and border-line diabetic. I am now on all gluten-free products which is enabling me to lose some weight. If I had a food processor, I could easily make my hummus, snack bars, dips, pesto, almond butter, etc. Eating healthy is more costly but I’m on a mission to feel better, have more energy, and lose weight.

  622. Rebekah

    Oh me oh my oh! Me and that food processor would be best friends forever! bff. I would make a million things. First some chocolate espresso power bars though, and some fig newtons, and some crackers so my little gluten free man can have portable snacks.

  623. Cathy

    Love the raw apple sauce – it is great in yogurt! Thanks for sharing all your efforts.

  624. Rhonda Keel

    My husband and I have been married a year now and this was one of my requests (on my to save up and get list) for the first year or so of marriage. I love cooking and do everything the old fashioned way. An appliance would e a godsend. I love your cookbooks and this site, we are eating gluten free slowly. I have to say I feel better for it – trying to be healthier this year and more aware of our bodies nutrition needs.

    • Rhonda Keel

      If I had the appliance I would make raw applesauce its a favorite of ours, my mother in law makes it.

  625. g.r. peirson

    I make all my spreads in my tiny processor, but have to empty it and make it in batches! Hummus is one of my favorites, as is the marinated artichoke parmesan one. So, if I win this processor, I can do spreads in one batch!!!

  626. Lauren @ As Good As Gluten @ asgoodasgluten.blogspot.com

    I love my little food processor and everything I do with it. My favorite thing to make is my husband’s homemade salsa.

  627. Penny Benning

    Hi there, Four years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer and went through 4 months of chemotherapy, a hysterectomy, and 6 1/2 weeks of radiation therapy. I never ate bad before this time, but I have made some changes in the way that I do eat now. I have enjoyed your website and the receipes that you offer. I recently got a receipe from a friend that is dehydrated garden burgers, which are gluten free and delicious. And you process everything up in a food processor. She has a food processor and they are absolutely fabulous and healthy. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Let me know if you are interested in the receipe. Penny

    Oh, Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies for sure!

    only 1/4 c. of coconut flour and so light and fluffy! I love that some of the choc chips are added on top of the batter before baking. They retain their shape and yet are slightly melted for that luscious chocolate taste.

    It’s a toss up between those and the Brownie recipe with just almond butter…. lol.

  629. Janice Cook

    My favorite recipe is pesto in the food processor. It just doesn’t do as well in the Vitamix. Thanks!! Love your recipes, especially the pumpkin muffins!

  630. The food processor was one of the greatest tools at my culinary school in Santa Cruz, CA. My favorite thing to make is raw maccaroons or Sweet Potato Fudge! (I actualy made some today, but the processor gets it so much more creamy!)

  631. Jennifer Sikora @ jennifersikora.com

    My favorite recipe is making homemade salsa in my OLD food processor! It makes it so easy and clean up is a breeze!

  632. Katie @ Nourishing Flourishing @ nourishingflourishing.com

    I love making date bars and tapenade in the food processor; it’s so easy! :)

  633. since going gluten-free, I have really learned to love cooking and food itself. if I had a food processor (and Ive been dreaming of one for forever), I would make: doughs, granitas, sauces, purees, EVERYTHING! because having a food processor opens you up to many options in the culinary world.

    I’d make something extra special for its first use

  634. cristina tucci

    My absolute favorite recipe would have to be the Double Chocolate Walnut Gluten Free Brownies. Although I am till afraid to use my processor for dough, I mainly use it for making hummus & other legume dips/spreads. I originally bought mine for slicing onions because I have very sensitive eyes & cant take the crying anymore, but my blade slices them to thin, so I don’t use it for that anymore. Occasionally I use it to shred cheese. But I’d love to have a good quality high powered food processor so I can be more versatile with my baking! Would also love to make all my almond meal , almond butter, peanut butter, & coconut flour from scratch, I think it would end up costing less.

  635. Victoira

    I have never owned a food processor. I do use my Braun hand blender with a small attachment to process small batches of onions, almonds and tomatoes for pico in the summer. I just purchased the new cookbook and am excited to test the dessert recipes and crackers. Tori

  636. Kathy

    My Cuisinart food processor is over 20 years old. It’s amazing it’s still cranking away! However, I would love to have a new one! My favorite recipe to make in my Cuisinart is Chickpea and Red Pepper Hummus. I use it instead of mayonnaise on my sandwiches, and also as a dip for pita chips and veggies. I make this once a week and my family loves it. The recipe is so easy. One can of chickpeas rinsed and drained, 1/2 jar of roasted red peppers and half of the liquid, 1/2 tsp ground cumin, 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic, and 1 and 1/2 tsp of lemon juice. Place everything in the food processor and process until it reaches the desired consistency. Enjoy!

  637. Juanita Thompson

    I have made several of the gluten free recipes from Elana’s Pantry and have been able to share them with my family and friends that are on strict diets. If I win the Cuisinart food processor, I will certainly make the Double Chocolate Walnut Gluten Free Brownies first!!
    Thanks, jt

  638. Kris Weimer

    Hi, that is an awesome looking processor. I have a vita mix but no processor. I love my vita mix put I like to make salsa’s, pesto’s and fillings that would work great in a processor! Thanks

  639. Jenna Smith

    Mashed cauliflower sounds great! I want to try it.

  640. Monica I.

    I use my (very) ancient cuisinart for grating zucchini, cucumber for tzatziki, blitzing cornflakes or rice krispies for oven crispy baked chicken (delicious – non-gf boyfriend begs for it)

    I’d love to replace my aging processor.

    Thanks for thinking of us.

  641. Sharon Johnston

    I love to make homemade Hummus! There is nothing like it. i love being able to make it differently- different spice combinations and ingredients. It is just so clean and refreshing!! It is always satisfying and always a big hit.

  642. Julia Stuble

    These Cuisinarts make everything so easy, like creating homemade pestos, soups, and baked goods! I love the ease of baking gluten free when I can use my mom’s Cuisinart – sometimes the recipes are so dry and finicky that my own muscle power isn’t enough. Her cuisinart makes it so simple. And with work, family and graduate school I turn to store bought hummus or pesto and everytime I reach for the carton, I think, “One day when I have a Cuisinart I’ll be doing this at home!” Instead, I take empty jars and ingredients home to use Mom’s when I visit. Thanks for the great recipes and this giveaway chance, Elana!

  643. Jacquelyn

    I have a tiny food processor, and I tried to make almond butter the other day and it only resulted in frustration. I’m in love with all your recipes and would love to make them with a food processor that actually works and fits more than a cup.

  644. Christine Fischer-Rothman

    I love making the pesto, and without a food processor this is a hard chore. But so yummy!!!

  645. meredith

    I have a great recipe for coconut macaroons that i would make….it’s called almond joy decadence and they are the best cookies. I make them infrequently as they are a little involved..perhaps with a food processor the work would go quicker..

  646. Christine

    I love the pumpkin bars!

  647. Kristin


    I can eat three whole bunches of kale chips on my own. I eat them right out of the oven, so I barely have any to serve to others!!

    • Kristin

      Ooops! I thought it said favorite Elanas Pantry recipe!!

      My all time favorite recipe where a food processor is a MUST HAVE is Cranberry Salsa:

      Cranberry Salsa
      1 bag fresh cranberries (only available around Thanksgiving holiday time)
      1 white onion (med.)
      1-2 Cerrano Chiles
      1-2 Jalapeno Chiles
      2-4 Cloves Garlic
      2-3 Limes or lemon
      1 Bunch Cilantro
      2 teaspoons salt
      1/2 teaspoon pepper
      Finely chop all ingredients, squeeze on juice, add S&P, mix well.

  648. Jenny

    Insane number of comments – obviously a very popular item. I have a mini food processor that’s good for salsa and such. A large one would allow larger projects and I’d love to try making pesto!

  649. Chelsea

    I would use it to make hummus and pesto for my three sons, husband and myself. What a fun giveaway!

  650. Sarah @ Eat Live Austin @ eatliveaustin.wordpress.com

    I have been lusting over a food processor forever. I haven’t bought one yet because I am waiting until I find one on sale, like the Crock Pot I recently bought. I have been using the Crock Pot non-stop since I got it, and I know I would do the same with a food processor! I think the first thing I would make is pesto, then nut butter, larabar type snacks, almond milk, hummus, and salsa!

  651. Tricia Smeding

    Great for making power bars too.. mmmmm!!!! Would love this!

  652. I just borrowed a friend’s food processor the other day and made quinoa flour by processing dried quinoa! I then used that to make a nutty chocolate chip quinoa and berry bar. I’m about to see how the photos turned out, so hopefully that will be posted soon.

    My favorite thing about food processors is not that they can make great recipes… but they open up so many opportunities to make the ingredients needed for great recipes. I still don’t have a food processor so I only get to use one when I am at a friend’s or borrow one, but I have used them for everything from doughs and pecan butter to red pepper feta sauce for pasta!

  653. Tracey

    I would make lots of hummus and almond butter and almond power bars! My kids love those!

  654. cindy

    I don’t own a food processor but making pesto with one sounds good.

  655. karen

    I could make lots and lots of pesto!

  656. Lynne

    If I had a food processor like that, I’d e making your yummy sounding, yummy looking hazelnut spread.

  657. Pam H

    Would love to make gluten free almond flour crackers!

  658. Jenny @ Stay on Path @ stayonpath.blogspot.com

    My favourite recipe to make with a food processor is chimichurri sauce. It’s easy, fresh, so delicious you want to pour it over everything, but you just HAVE to have a food processor to make it. I’ve never had a good food processor and now don’t have one at all, so I’m crossing my fingers that the universe will hook a girl up.

  659. Judy Randall

    I would love a food processor to make your chocolate espresso power bars.

  660. Crystal Munson

    Pie Crust, Granola, Pesto!

  661. Lindsey

    Owwww, I broke my food processor.

  662. Kaitlyn

    If I had a Cuisanart I’d finely grind up my own meat for meatballs. Mmmm, would love that!

  663. I absolutely LOVE your cauliflower rice!!! That would definately be my favorite recipe with the food processor and that way I could make it ALL the time! Woo Hoo hope I am lucky!

  664. I would love a new Cuisinart to make some coconut butter! I tried in my old crappy food processor the other day but it wasn’t up to the task :(

  665. Jami Leigh

    My favorites food processor recipes would have to be the simple things: pesto, salsa, and humus.

  666. Christi

    I love pesto! I pureed some veggies to hide in my kids’ meals this week, but the magic bullet just doesn’t cut it…. For either of these recipes!

  667. Karla Nesta

    If I won the processor the first thing I would make is the carrot banana muffins. I was diagnosed with Celiac in August. All of this food is so expensive, especially breads and any type of desert. I have yet to find a bread that tastes good, or a roll. I am learning to cook everything from scratch hard when your a mom, wife, student, and work full time.

  668. Amanda

    I would make everything I could think of in this. Smoothies in the morning, sauces for dinner. The possibilities are endless. I would love to have a food processor!

  669. Katherine Siegrist

    I am not sure what I would do with a food processor. I have never had one. I do have a Vitamix, and I love it. However, I think there are many things that would just be easier and quicker with a food processor. (The clean up too.) I have never baked as much as I do now, thanks to your fabulous book!! I love making healthy gluten free treats. They are for me, but my husband snatches them right up!! This makes me happy because he is now eating healthier, and he doesn’t even know it. :) Now, I bake so much he calls me Betty Crocker!

  670. I fully agree – the blender and the food processor are the most useful tools!

  671. Cheryl @ gfgoodness.com

    chocolate hazelnut butter!

  672. Elizabeth

    I use my food processor to make nutritious food for my dog (in addition to yummy food for me). Since my food processor broke, I’ve had to jab a spoon into it to try and get it to function. Food processors are amazing integral part of my life and I need a replacement!

  673. Robin

    By far my favorite is cauliflower “mashed potatoes.” I think they are better than the original since there is no chance of them getting gummy. Yum, with some butter….

  674. My favorite recipe using a food processor is your Cauliflower Rice! It is a staple in my house!

  675. Daniela Tanner

    This is a beautiful piece of kitchen machinery! I would love to make some pesto, salsa, and hummus this summer!

  676. Jim Slobojan

    Baby food
    Butternut Squash soup

  677. max in canada

    I would love a blender! hummus, and lots of stuffed mushrooms, please!

  678. lisa morris

    My favorite by far recipe I make each Shabbot is your Brownie walnut cake. Yummmmmmm

  679. Sarah P

    It sounds mundane, but I love making HUMMUS in the food processor; it gets it so smooth! We also enjoy making all sorts of RAW TRUFFLES and nut/date bars.

  680. Linda North

    I just made the almond butter brownies. My favorite and so delicious.

  681. B Oliver

    Wow! I would love that Cuisinart! Those machines can do it all! Going to make those Power bars since the Larabar bars are good but a bit sweet…

  682. Melissa

    The Mustard Lime Chicken sounds yummy!

  683. karen

    thank for great and yum gluten free recipes. i totally do this by hand since i dont have a mixer so it works but would love to win too. best, karen

  684. hiroko ueno

    I love smoothie in the morning. Frozen berries, almond millk, little protein powder and nuts.Making my energy bars with dates, coconut, almonds and sesame seeds will be easy with this processor.

  685. I would love to make the Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies or the Double Chocolate Mocha Biscotti. They both sound decadent and very yummy! ;D

  686. Bev Selby @ paint-the-town.com

    Hi there,
    I have been gluten free for almost 1 year (short of 2 weeks)! I am thankful for you and your recipes! My day is brighter when I receive a new recipe from you!


    Bev Selby

  687. Hetaher

    My favorite food to use a food processor with is hummus. If I won this, I would use it for everything!

  688. eden

    jelly donut cupcakes!! yum. I recently made some honey sweetened rhubarb jam…yumzers in the cupcake!

  689. Lori

    It would be a dream to own this food processor. Too begin with, I would make fresh salsa and coconut battered whitefish. What a help this would be to me in the kitchen! I was given one of those little machines advertised on TV, which just mashes everything into a paste.

  690. Laurie F.

    My favorite and easy recipe right now is making almond fig bites.

  691. Elizbeth @ mothermedoula.com

    My old food processor is great for making cookie dough, pesto, and pie crusts. My favorite gluten free recipe that I make with it would be cole slaw.
    I would love to have a new and better one.

  692. Cindi

    I make a pretty mean Salsa!

  693. Great giveaway! I like to do almond flour crusts in mine!

  694. Ela

    I would definitely make a brownie recipe! Yum!

  695. Heartsong

    Oh my, what a lovely and generous give-away.
    I have never had a food processor, and rely heavily upon my blender.
    Thanks for even the possibility!

  696. We’re going to be celebrating my Mom’s 80th birthday soon. I would use it to make gluten-free desserts for the event. I would like to take my family’s traditional desserts and make them gluten-free so others will know that gluten-free can taste great too. I’d like to make date and nut bread, carrot cake cupcakes, walnut crescents, just to name a few. My mom loves fig newtons so it would be wonderful to make her a gluten-free version. She’d be so surprised. A new food processor from Cuisinart would be perfect to help me make my Mom’s birthday party even more special. Thanks for offering the giveaway! Best wishes, Carol

  697. I love making hummus in a food processor…but making bread crumbs without one is a terrible experience!

  698. Sally Nance

    If I had a cuisinart food processor, I would definitely make the gluten free mulberry granola! Actually, I would make everything that Elana listed! I’ve been wanting one for years!

  699. I would love a food processor so I could make countless raw food recipes like Mexican burritos, zucchini pancakes, apple pecan coconut chutney and MORE!

  700. Adam

    I would make my favorite almond flour, coconut, beet burgers! Love them :D

  701. Lena

    I would use one to make potato pancakes and cole slaw! 2 of my favorite gluten free foods :)

  702. Laura rechtfertig

    Pick me! Pick me! ;) My cuisanart of 20 years just broke….my favorite recipe to make now a days are your energy bars with almonds, macadamians and dates. My whole family loves them!

  703. Katie

    Hi Elana,

    Your recipes have literally saved me; as a celiac with many food allergies, they help me eat simply and deliciously. Muffins, cookies, pizza, cupcakes… all are now possible because of you and your recipes!

    I have a blender that I use for cooking, but it is old and the power is not that high. I would LOVE this food processor and use it for everything from hummus to soup to cupcakes. Thank you!

  704. Elizabeth Dahl @ edahlphotography.com

    Double Chocolate Mocha Biscotti!!!

  705. What a great giveaway, thank you! I love my little 3-cup Cuisinart processor, but I have used it so many times the lid is breaking and I have long outgrown it, anyway. I would make so many more of my grandmother’s pecan macaroons if I won this. :)

  706. Mary Kay Martin

    I would use it to make a tapenade. I use mine a lot. I couldn’t live without one.

  707. Jamie

    I would use it to make another raw strawberry cheesecake…I only have a 3 cup food processor making the process longer! Tonight I am attempting your chocolate cranberry power bars and so excited!!!

  708. Simone

    I’d love to be able to make some healthy dips instead of always having to buy them at the grocery store, I’m sure it would save me some money and as a student that would be amazing

  709. Debbie Plumley

    I would probably say applesauce because I use raw apples in so many of the recipes I prepare.

  710. I would love to start making nut butters and flours, as well as a bunch of different sauces, salsas, and vinaigrettes. Such a great giveaway!

  711. Mariane Heroux

    I love to make peanut butter balls with natural peanut butter, oats, and soaked dates. Just process the ingredients, roll them into balls, refrigerate, and devour! So yummy!!!

  712. Kate costin

    Elena, my daughter and l love your community spinach cake recipe. I don’t have a food processor, so my texture might not be as good as yours, but it is still delicious. if I had a food processor, I would make your double chocolate mocha biscotti. That recipe looks wonderful. We love your recipes and are never without one of your breads and one of your crackers.


  713. http://groundcherry.wordpress.com/2011/03/25/sweet-potato-squash-filling/

    Sweet potato and squash filling! I make it for my birthday dinner.

  714. Susan S

    Ooh – I would love to make your Chocolate Espresso Power Bars. I have never had a food processor and it sounds like I am missing out on a lot of delicious things I could make for others, and myself too. And – my 65th birthday is April 8, 2011.

  715. i have celiacs, but my 2 kids and husband dont (as of yet)… i have one old cuisinart food processor to make my baby food and anything my families heart desires… however, for fear, i dont use it on anything for myself… it would be nice to be able to make my own hummus, salsas, dips.. really, just anything gluten free i can think of, in one of my very own!

  716. Lily Arfa

    I don’t have a food processor right now so I don’t make anything in one. I would love one to make everything from pesto to doughs for breads or cookies.

  717. Debbie Patt

    If I had this awesome food processor, I would use it to grind up my secret ingredients to make the delicious crust for my gluten free cheesecakes! Also, I would definitely use it to make homemade pie crust, and potato pancakes!

  718. Peiwen

    Thanks for the giveaway! I would love to make nut butters with the food processor!

  719. Joanna Thompson

    I love your Gluten Free recipes. My son and myself both have Celiac so we are using your recipes quite often. My son is also G-tube fed, thus I need to process all of his meals. Quisinart Food Processor would be a dream to have. I love your Carrot Banana Muffins, Mushroom Soup and Pesto Chicken. Delightful!

  720. Naomi

    Oh thanks for entering me! I love all your recipes and am very appreciative! My food processor is falling to bits and the S blade isn’t usable anymore. I’d adore this gem of a machine! And the very first thing I’d make to celebrate is pesto, the thing that first inspired both to garden and to become more inspired in the kitchen. My basil is planted and ready to go!

  721. Meggan D.

    my daughter keeps asking for fig newtons… so that’s what I’d make!

  722. Dolores

    I love the recipe you posted this week to make “power bars” I love them!!! but I don´t have a food processor and I don´t think the blender is going to work in this case (I use it for may other recipes specially to make GF bread crumbs)

    thanks for giving away this super kitchen tool!

  723. Amber

    Right now all I have is a mini food chopper/processor thing and I’ve just about burnt out the motor making banana-strawberry “soft serve” and pesto. I’ve seen dozens of recipes I’d love to try but had to skip since I knew neither the little chopper nor my poor blender were up to the task!

  724. sarah h.

    Almond Power Bars … we love them!

  725. miss tejota @ misstejota.com

    I didn’t realize the amount of things one could use to make items in a food processor. If I could use one, I would make your salmon with anchovy olive tapenade.

    Once again another great contest. Thanks for doing it.

  726. Lisa

    I use my aging Cuisinart to make potato latkas in the winter (and a yummy new leek latka recipe that I recently found). In the summer I use it to make homemade pesto.

  727. Jodi

    Hi Elana,

    Wow, thanks for the giveaway! What an awesome product. My very old Black & Decker food proc. is on it’s last legs and I’d love a new one. I use it often for various doughs, raw treats like chocolate mousse (with avocado), buzzing up nuts for pie crusts, etc. But honestly, one of my fav things to do with my food proc. is to make cole slaw! I could eat it by the bucketful!

    Thanks again for all of the recipes & advice!

  728. Karen

    I just made your pumpkin muffins, using a blender to mix the wet ingredients. It’s my favorite recipe. I don’t have a food processor so could really use one. I’d like to make pesto (drooling over those recipes) and need one for that alone!

  729. Chantelle yates

    Oh goodness!!! So many possibilities!!! For me I think a huge benefit would be hiding healthy veggies in sauces etc for my 2 year old daughter with celiac. She isn’t a big veggie eater so if I could hide them, yahoo!!’

  730. Marilyn Winberg

    I would love to have that food processor! I would make nut butters and esp mashed cauliflower, which my granddaughter and I love. It would taste sooo good nice and smooth out of that food processor!

  731. Sara

    What a great giveaway! I don’t have a food processor and am just getting into clean/healthier eating. My list of what I would use it for is long…pesto of course, veggie/chicken nuggets, homemade Larabars, homemade Nuetella and so many other things in my stack of recipes just waiting to be tested. Thanks for all the great recipes on your blog, loving everything I try!!!

  732. rachel

    I LOVE carrot cake! However, I don’t make it very often because of the grated carrots. A new Cuisinart would make it a lot easier!

  733. Donna D.

    If I had a food processor I would use it to make fresh salsa!

  734. Elisabeth @ elisabeth-sarah.com

    Wow, thanks for the wonderful opportunity! I would make lots of raw date and cashew desserts, my magic bullet can’t handle the goopiness. :)

  735. Noelle

    I love to shred chicken for buffalo chicken dip.

  736. Julia

    Your power bars! Without a doubt. Except, in my mini FP I have to do it in 3 batches!

  737. We eat Paleo/Weston Price but mainly as whole food as possible. It would be very handy to have the processor for a lot!!! Plus I have a 5 month old that is VERY interested in eating with her big sister.

  738. Ally Mahoney

    This time of year my favorite thing to make in a food processor is wild herb pesto. I like to use the fresh spring growth of stinging nettles, chickweed, cress, and wild onions along with the usual lemons, garlic, olive oil, and sunflower seeds to whip up a deliciously wild variation on traditional basil pesto.

  739. Jen-Jen Y

    My food processer is over 20 years old – and soon it is going to the big appliance graveyard.

    I use it for lots of things – one of my favorite uses is for nuts – to make crusts for desserts since going gf – and also to make a walnut sauce for pasta – so very, very delish. Also use it to make my hummus The list is endless :)

  740. I would start grinding my own buckwheat flour!

  741. Barbara

    If I won the food processor I would give it to my daughter (reluctantly) who is getting married in May. I use mine to make pesto, soups, salad dressings, and power bars to name a few things. I can’t get along without it.

  742. Shaunna

    my fav is the cranberry pictaico biscotti make with almond flour its rick and delish thanks for sharing

  743. Christy

    We use our Cuisinart for everything including pesto, soups, hummus and more. Just now going on 12 years old, our Cusinart is just now starting to feel it’s age. My favorite thing to make with Cuisinart is an Indian dish called Eggplant Bhartha. After roasting the eggplant in the oven you blend it in the Cuisinart before adding it to a savory mix of onions, tomatoes, cilantro and peppers that have been cooking on the stove. You top it off with a bit of ghee and the finished dish just melts in your mouth. The smoky, smooth eggplant makes it a decadent vegetarian delight that your family will love!

    • Maegan

      Thanks for posting that. I’ve never really knew how to use eggplant creatively and that sounds marvelous!

  744. Karen

    I hear pie crusts are way easier to make with a food processor, along with a raw cranberry dressing, homemade larabars….

  745. Kailin Fenn

    I would use it to make cauliflower mashed “potatoes”! I can’t eat gluten, but I can’t eat sugar or high glycemic foods either!

  746. Maegan

    Too many to name but I’d have to say the nut butters and our imitation Larabars with cocoa.

    Of course I just bought a cheap one at the place I dread, Walmart. I would donate one of them to a good friend or my mom who could use it to make healthier food!

    Thanks Elana for the give-a-way.

  747. i think i would start with Chocolate Espresso Power Bars.

  748. I actually just made your cauliflower rice recipe last night for the first time! It was not nearly as fun making it in batches in my tiny food processer as it would be in this amazing one!

  749. Rob


    I love your book and I have been following your blog for quite some time. Both my son and I have Celiac and lactose intolerance and your recipes have been amazing. Everytime I meet someone with Celiac I tell them about your website and cookbook. So many times I have served your recipes at Passover, High Holidays, birthday parties, etc., and every single time people cannot believe it is lactose and gluten free and no matter how much I make it does not last. Thanks again Elana



  750. Kristin

    I love to make various pestos, but lately, my favorite cuisenart recipe is almond encrusted chicken breast. Simply blend almonds in the bowl of the food processor, add salt, pepper, and paprika. dredge the chicken in egg whites and then through the almonds. Chill for 20 minutes, brown on each side, then bake for 20 minutes. Yum, yum, yum!

  751. Pat

    My favorite food processor food is pesto (any type) – dairy-free basil, cilantro-pumpkin seed, and sundried tomato are my favorite flavors. Love to mix the type of nuts used too. Recently made sage pesto – a dollop stirred into chicken soup is heavenly.

  752. I’d make italian ice with frozen strawberries. I have a teeny-tiney food processor that hardly can hold anything.

  753. I love making fresh Gluten-Free Romesco sauce with roasted Ancho Chilies and ground almonds or hazelnuts. Absolutely divine on grilled fish, chicken, steak or tacos. A new food processor would make this a whole lot easier! Mine is a 20 year old hand-me-down, but it must be a testament to the longevity of the cuisinart brand.

  754. Mindy

    I use my food processor all the time, particularly for finely chopping onions so that my hubby will eat them. : ) I’d love a new one since my blade is breaking and they no longer make replacement parts for it!

  755. Cara

    I would make homemade pureed tomato soup if I had a food processor!! :)

  756. Kay spitzmueller

    I would love to make power bars!!!!!

  757. Dayle

    Wow, what a give away! I have been wanting a food processor for some time now. Actually this week I have been researching online and found them to be expensive and out of our budget for now. In February of this year, I had a bone marrow transplant and I thought having a food processor would help me prepare some of the nutritious recipes I would like to try. I have been wanting to make pesto, you homemade lara bars and your cauliflower rice. I also saw a recipe for red bean jam granola bars on another site and you need a processor for that. Hoping and praying for the blessing of a Cuisinart.

  758. rose whalon

    i would love to have one so i could make many of your recipes, would especially like to make the jelly doughnuts ! have and love your cook book, and will be buying the cupcake one also.

  759. I would love to have a food processor! I would make strawberry sorbet every day.

  760. Melanie

    Gluten Free pie dough!

  761. Sheryl

    I use my broken food processor all the time to shred cheese for pizza. I used to puree zucchini and other veggies for the kids but it leaks out the side now….I would love to win!!

  762. victoria klein

    i love the spicy power bars! i make them in the Vitamix, but it would be much easier in a food processor!

  763. Jessica Elise

    My favorite thing to make with a processor are raisin-nut balls. They are a delicious and healthy dessert made with raisins or dates and any type of nuts. they need a touch of melted butter or coconut oil and dried unsweetened coconut flakes.
    Thanks for all the wonderful recipes!

  764. Courtney

    Those jelly donut cupcakes would be first on my list if I had a food processor. Yum!

  765. JKMichelson

    I would like to make some gluten free snack bars for my kids from a recipe I found in a magazine.

  766. Nadia Jaber

    I’d want to immediately make the mashed cauliflower, it looks awesome!!!

  767. Audrey

    I would love to make homemade hummus and nut butters.

  768. Laura

    I’d love to make pesto and nut butters!

  769. A Cuisinart would help me to make wonderful, nutty pie crusts. It would also let me make a mock-liver pate (I am a gluten-free vegetarian) out of mushrooms, walnuts and lemon juice — truly yummy with crisp vegetables or thin rice crackers! Yet another recipe that would benefit from the food processor is my family’s favorite: popovers. The batter is tricky to blend by hand.

    I check out your website daily. I purchased your cookbook (made the chocolate chip cookies for my gluten-free friends) and have fallen in love with almond flour. Thanks for sharing your creativity with the rest of us.

    A recommendation: Have you discovered Schar products? They are available in the health food store and are by far the best pasta substitute I’ve found.

    Thanks for this generous giveaway.

  770. Cindy

    This would be a great treasure to have, thank you for offering it to us….

  771. Maeri Krattenmaker

    I would make a strawberry,peach and orange smoothie.Tastes just like one from orange julious.

  772. Marj Starner

    I would make the Carrot Banana Muffins. I would love to have one just out of the oven. I can smell them. Oh so good!!!

  773. Elizabeth

    What a wonderful giveaway! By far, my favorite GF food to make in a food processor is hummus. I try many variations on my recipe (more garlic, more tahini, more parsley, lime instead of lemon, etc) but the one KEY to success is a decent blender. I am using one that was given to us about 20 years ago and I’d love to upgrade. Thank you!

  774. Summer Wilda @ peachnme.blogspot.com

    sun dried tomato and cheese bread – absolutely melt in your mouth amazing!

  775. Double Chocolate Mocha Biscotti! I make it quite often by hand because I do not have a cuisinart. I would love to make the recipe using one!

  776. cristy eirich

    my favorite reciepe is the gluten free granola…We love it and i make it every week..thnks! cristy eirich

  777. Julie

    I just used my food processor to blend up some dried chiles I had soaked in hot broth for a chili. Yum!

  778. Gwen

    I would make Hummus!!

  779. Michele Kendzie @ rhicarian.wordpress.com

    I think the dish I’ve made in my food processor the most is Black Bean Soup. (Yes, the recipe says to use a blender, but I don’t have a good blender and it works better in the little food processor I have.)

  780. Ashley Shaw

    Hi Elana! Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipes. I appreciate it so much! I’d love to win a Cuisnart. My food processor is about to bite the dust. I use it for so many things, but a few of my favorites are creamed cauliflower, pesto and cashew “cheese” sauce.

  781. Carrie Barron

    I like to make almond meal in the food processor, and cookie mix! I would love to see more recipes with coconut flour. :)

  782. Judi Meade

    Elana, If I had a cuisineart(again) I would go back to making pie crusts – something I never could do by hand. I only learned to make light and fluffy crusts once I acquired an 8 cuisinart, many years ago. The top of my cuisinart broke some years ago and I was unable to find a replacement. I made the mistake of going cheap on the replacement – not a cuisinart. Boy do I regret it. I would love to win your brand new 12 cup one.

    P.S. I love your recipes.

  783. Diane

    If I had a food processor, I would love to make your Double Chocolate Mocha Biscotti!

  784. Anna Aspnes @ annaaspnes.typepad.com

    Shredding cabbage and carrots for coleslaw. It’s so tedious to do it by hand. Thanks for the chance.

  785. Julie

    hope I win! This would make life easier and tastier!

  786. Jennifer Smith

    Ooooh! Just in time for summer! How exciting. It will be so hard to decide what my first recipe will be. So many great Elana recipes to choose from. I think I would like to try the carrot banana muffins for my youngest starting school in September.

  787. I made quite a few pies last summer from the blackberries, gooseberries and rhubarb on mine and my neighbor’s property using my mini food processor for the pie dough – and it worked great! Even though I had to process each crust separately because of the size of the processor. A full sized Cuisinart would be amazing!!

  788. Sarah Yoshi

    Ohhh dear, I’ve been trying to figure out what food processor to buy! I’ve had a craving to make some of my own Coconut butter, which my Vitamix isn’t built to do.

  789. Fariba Kerendi

    I woulf love to make spinach walnut pesto in a cuisinart!!

  790. I was recently diagnosed with celiacs disease. I am learning to cook more foods from scratch.The fact that fresh whole foods are less likely to be contaminated with Gluten would make cooking for our family of 5 much easier. I need to replace older appliances that might cause issues of contamination also. This product looks awesome!

  791. Susan Clark

    Pesto! Pesto! Pesto!

  792. Pamela Fox @ pamelagoesprimal.com

    I love to eat mashes of cauliflowers, parsnips, and carrots. Such a yummy side!

    Unfortunately I just moved and don’t have a processor yet, so I am missing out.. Winning one would fix that. :)

  793. Laura

    I would use it to make applesauce or almond macaroons!

  794. Wendy

    My most favorite thing to make is carrot cake. I love to mince the carrots instead of grating them. I also use it to chop the walnuts.

  795. Nicole

    Wow. I love my VitaMix but lack a food processor to make my kitchen complete…my favorite pre-gf kitchen appliance was my Bosch.

  796. Bonnie

    I LOVE broccoli soup! I’ve made yours Elana, and it’s so good, but my blender just never gets the texture right…

    Here’s hoping!

  797. Lenee

    I love your Muesli Bread from your
    Cookbook. It is nutty and delicious and I feel it’s very low carb.
    I would love to make your latest recipe, chocolate cranberry power bars. I also saw a recipe today on Facebook that looked delicious. Its called Cinnamon walnut buttons from the nourishing home. It has dates in the recipe that also calls for a food processor. I don’t have one, but would love to have a food processor!

  798. Roz

    Coleslaw. Use the basic set up to make a cumin-lime dressing, then add in the various size grater discs for cabbage, radish and bell pepper. Goes with everything from bbq to taco fillings.

  799. Kristen

    Your apricot tea squares hands down. Always & crowd pleaser & fruit sweetened to boot:)

  800. Crystal A

    Love to make scones in my food processor! For sure the thing that I use it for the most often.

  801. Twila Baker

    I enjoy your site and your recipes. Thank you.

  802. Hedy

    I love to use the processor for chopping nuts….and pulverizing rice chex for coating fish and chicken. I could use a larger one to handle more. I do at least 4 boxes at a time. This way I am well stocked, but only a small amount fits in the bowl.
    Loved all your info on Purim.

  803. JJ Hughes

    Absolutely make salsa and smoothies!

  804. Lisa

    I love to make salsa in my processor!

  805. I do not have a food processor but as we all all embarking on a grain free diet, would like to start making your fabulous looking breads. We are yet to find a bread that the children will eat, so hoping yours are the one.

  806. Rebekah

    I love your double chocolate walnut brownies, and they are so easy in the food processor. I also like to make cauliflower rice. I use my food processor a lot, but this Cuisinart would be fantastic since mine is so outdated. Hope I win!

  807. Mary Babcock

    I Love Cuisinart products from the food processors to the coffee pots they make. The food processor comes in handy for almost anything so I would leave it out on my counter space for easy access. I have celiacs disease so am learning now how to make food goodies all over again so I can eat them.

  808. Oh how I was thinking about this the other day when I almost burned up my vita-mix while making hummus, I had gotten it to thick & it was making awful noises…the kids were freaking out. If I won this lovely I would make worry free hummus & tons of other yummy food!

  809. Surella baer

    My favorite food processor recipe is potato kugel! I use a friend’s recipe that I “improved”.
    The processor does an amazing job of blending the potatoes and onion. It is the perfect food!

  810. Faune Kretchman

    I would make your delicious sounding Chocolate Expresso Bars. We have 6 kids and I have never owned a food processor! It would be great to have one.

  811. paula @ twoellie.com

    How fabulous would this be to win! mine is slowly dying….

  812. Kathy

    Would love to win this food processor!! My cheap one is broken and in need of being replaced with something more durable. Thanks for the opportunity!

    • Kathy

      This is a P.S. to my comment above: I would make your recipes for Chocolate Cranberry power bars. They look delicious!

  813. If I had one of these I would love to try the applesauce recipe!

  814. Archena

    The Chocolate Espresso Power Bars are great! Addicted to Bold Coffee and these are lovely!

  815. Rebecca

    My favorite recipe is a coconut milk smoothie I make with frozen fruit. It tastes like ice cream! The processor will come in handy real soon as I am 8 months pregnant & have plans to make my own baby food in the future!

  816. Abby H.

    We like making pesto in ours, also homemade mayo, egg salad, raw treats, coleslaw…the list could go on and on! This looks like a really nice one!

  817. Ooh, I’ve got a food processor on my birthday list. I’ve wanted one for months now, ever since I went home for Christmas and gave my mom a day of meal preparation. We did prep work for 30 meals in one day, and I had pulled out the chopping board when she goes “Let’s use the food processor.”


    I eat a LOT of veggie based food (grad student trying to eat healthy on $30 a week), and I do most of my cooking for the week on Sundays. I probably spend at least an hour a week cutting things by hand. Having a food processor of any sort would cut that down dramatically, plus then I could try all the great recipes here and elsewhere that require a food processor!

  818. Susan Garman

    Can’t wait to try the carrot muffins.

  819. Heidi Benitez

    My most favorite is Goa Yellow Curry. I Would like to try more recipes using a Cuisineart!

  820. Valerie G. Trapp @ valerieartlady@aol.com

    I do not have a food processor!! therefore, I have no recipes using one :( so, I really, really need one! Would love to make my own pesto! Nut butters would be great to make and to try to make my own protein bars! So…..

  821. Lauren

    Dear Elana,
    I’ve recently been looking into purchasing a food processor and didn’t know what bells and whistles I needed, as well as how much I needed to spend on one. My husband and I love to cook and we’ve really been wanting to make healthy homemade power bars- especially your chocolate espresso power bars! They look delicious. Thanks for all your delicious recipes! I’m actually making the double chocolate cherry cookies from your cookbook tonight :).

  822. Brian W.

    I would make lots and lots of salsa!!

  823. Tiziana @ tizib.etsy.com

    We can’t wait to get our hands on one of these:)
    Thank you,

  824. Tressa R

    I love making hummus! It helps me be able to eat more veggies….and crackers…..and pita chips….etc. :)

  825. Linda:-)

    I’d use it for soups… love soup any time of the year!! Soup is my favorite comfort food and home-made is always the best! Definitely would use it to get more veggies into the family since it would be easier to puree and hide the ones the everyone says ‘ewww’ too! I love veggies, but the rest of the family, not so much!

  826. nina radakovich

    I like the convenience of using a food processor for tuna salad. You can control the texture.

  827. Gretchen Kingsley

    my favorite recipe to use a food processor for is homemade larabars. yummy!

  828. Teri Paynter @ teripaynter@juno.com

    I would try all your recipes that needs a food processor.


  829. Karen Maxon

    I just made your Bindi Bars for the first time using my (old!!) food processor — and it may become my favorite! I also LOVE the Cauliflower and Mushroom dressing that I learned from marksdailyapple.com.

  830. Trisha

    I love to make pie crust in my food processor.

  831. Christine

    I love my processor that is at least 25 years old. It is great for everything but I especially enjoy making hummus and other g-free dips. I find that it is awesome for bread recipes as the bread seems to be fluffier.

  832. Sahnya

    One of my favorite uses of a food processor – making salsa

  833. Stephanie R.

    My favorite food processor recipes are raw brownies with raw chocolate frosting and fudge babies (also raw).
    I no longer eat the raw brownies only because I haven’t yet adapted them to my dietary lifestyle (very Paleo) but I make fudge babies whenever we have need of holiday treats or are expected to bring something sweet to a get together.
    1 cup walnuts (pecans work well too)
    1 1/3 cup pitted Medjool dated
    4 tblspns cocoa powder (raw is awesome if you have it!)
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    Pulse in processor until well mixed and crumbly. Empty into bowl and form into 1 inch balls.

    You can add cinnamon or a touch of cayenne pepper. Add wasabi powder or ginger powder and roll in toasted sesame seeds. Try a few drops of lavender or rose oil. Any number of things can be tried to make these unique but they are delicious the way they are.

  834. Jennifer Kim

    I would definitely make pesto with it!! :) yum
    I love putting pesto on my sandwiches, pasta, chicken, just about anything!!

  835. I love making raw food desserts. I use my food processor a lot for chopping up nuts:) I love your peppermint pattie recipe!!!

  836. Tricia @ Saving room for dessert @ savingdessert.com

    I would make pie crusts, homemade Larabar’s and all kinds of things!

  837. Tammy Lou McIlwain

    Oh it would be sooo easy to make my mashed cauliflower. Then those yumy energy/breakfast bars you post! So many recipes to choose from that I don’t make because it’s too hard for me to mix by hand. Would there be enough hours in a day to try all the recipes……..

  838. Heather Lewis

    I’ve never had a food processor. But I want one desperately. I’m pretty sure it would change my life. My prep time for making anything is pretty ridiculous. And there mere thought of actually being able to make pesto without wanting to kill the machine I was making it in is like a dream. Although if I had to choose a recipe that I would definitely make with the food processor, it would have to be latkes. Shredding potatoes by hand? No thank you.

  839. I do not have a food processor, my other one died long ago. I would love to have a food processor again to make homemade lara bars and other raw food meals. Crossing my fingers and toes! PIcK mE! : )

  840. Mindy

    I would love to make homemade salsa with a cuisinart

  841. karen roessler

    I am a big fan of yours, and your cookbook has been such a huge hit and health benefit with not only me but also my grandkids. If I am lucky enough to get the cuisinart I would make lots of brownies, cauliflower, and beans. Thanks for the opportunity. Karen

  842. Bonnie Brown

    Love Elana’s Pantry and many of your recipes! My favorite thing to make in the food processor is a confetti cole slaw. So fast! We eat lots of fish, and many cole slaw variations are delicious with it!

  843. Hannah Marcotti @ hannahsharvest.com

    It’s one of the only things on last year’s vision board, about to be remade on Sat that didn’t manifest, here’s to dreams!

  844. susan

    I would immediately try your double chocolate walnut brownies if I won your Cuisinart! I have just bought my first bag of almond flour AND your cookbook. Can’t wait to get started!

  845. donna

    hmm..i don’t think my comment posted the first time…i love making your gf orange cake with my old delapidated processor from a yard sale..lol….with a new one i would still make the orange cake amongst other things!that one looks amazing!

    • donna

      i meant to add that i just made that cake today and it is the second one this week! we are addicted to it! it is SOOO good- i have made it for company and parties and everyone always loves it…;-)

  846. I’d love to be entered in the contest. I’ve been looking to buy a food processor mainly due to the inspiration I’ve gotten from this blog!

  847. Oliver

    Pesto, mayo, and cauliflower mash… Also, I often use it make cauliflower/almond flour pizza dough (1 cauliflower head, 1 cup almond flour, 3 eggs, and seasoning).

  848. Rebecca Rosak

    Ever since I went to The Big Island a couple of years ago I have wanted to make pesto. I discovered this little italian restaurant and a chef from Italy who made everything from scratch. I never really liked the pestos I tried but this was amazing pesto made with walnuts. If I had a Food Processor I would make pesto and everything else you listed.

  849. Laurel

    Wow what an awesome thing to do. I use my old beat up food processor for all kinds of things like making dips, shredding veg for salads, making pie dough but I think my favorite is making different flavored aioli sauces or mayonnaise. It’s just so cool watching it come together; a pain to clean but fun to make!

  850. Alice Misiewicz

    I would love to make the chocolate hazelnut spread. I like Nutella, but am trying to cut back on sugar and also food costs.

    I appreciate that your recipes have simple ingredients, and You have done the experimenting to very successful results.

    Thank you!!

  851. Debra Gowlland @ gowlland@frontiernet.net

    I actually don’t own a food processor…crazy I know! I’d love to have one though. I know that it would make life alot easier in my gf kitchen!

  852. Cathy

    gluten free pasta in a food processor is amazing …

  853. johanna martinez

    i love your recipies elana. the almond butter brownies are hit in our house. i would love to have a food processer to make raw truffles. yummmmmm

  854. Gudrun Schindler

    I have a food processor that’s many, many years old. I use it mostly to shred cheese and to make sandwich spreads.
    I’d sure love to have a new one!

  855. I would love, love, love this food processor, I could
    really use one! I would absolutely make your chocolate
    hazelnut spread, I have made it before in a little tiny
    food processor, but need more room. It is delish!
    And made it with the cheddar crackers from your cookbook,
    they were both a hit when I had a few women friends over.
    Love your cookbook and website, thanks so much, Elana!

  856. I would make boatloads of hummus. and tons of different nut butters as well:)

  857. I’ve had my mother’s cuisinart from the 80’s for years and I just blew out the motor. I love it to make pesto and gaspacho. I was wondering what to replace it with and I guess another cuisinart is the way to go since they last (almost) forever!

  858. Chloe Marty @ mochieroo.com

    I would make more cashew milk if I had something nice and high-powered like this!

  859. donna greenaway

    well why would I like to have this wonderful machine….well who would not want it….my husband was told 1 and 1 half ago that his cronic digestive problems was celiac…well that changed our lives..my old kitchen aide died and well now I need it more than ever…to make your recipies as that is what has been keeping us fed for the past year and an half.

  860. Anne Armstrong

    I managed to make your chicken meatballs once in a mangled fashion of a knife and a blender. If I had a food processer, I would make them more often because they are great to freeze and cook a little at a time! Also, I would use it to quickly cut veggies for veggie soup – another staple in my house.


    P.S. your recipe for Almond Butter Brownies is amazing. they are superior to any gluten-filled brownie I have ever had, and I will never need to go back. Thanks!

  861. alicia

    My favorite recipe is the black and white cake!!!!!!! Soooo delicious! Alicia

  862. Nicole

    I would make salsa, homemade larabars, and mashed cauliflower!

  863. Angela

    I would make kale pesto with walnuts, olive oil, parmesan and garlic. Surprisingly, my kids love this one. I would also use it for hiding veggies in my many sauce and soup recipes. It would especially help in making things “thicker.”

    Still waiting for one on my bday, but maybe I can win one instead.

  864. What a great giveaway! I love making pesto in the food processor. I would like to try your chocolate hazlenut spread with it for sure!

  865. Lois Gilman

    I make pesto and hummus using my food processor which is very old. If I had a Cuisinart Food Processor, I would use it for all kinds of dough such as bread dough, pie crusts, and all types of cookie dough. I would also use it for chopping and pureeing veggies for soups and stews. The possibilities are endless!
    Thank you for your consideration.

  866. Deena

    My favorite recipe using a food processor is a raw cranberry relish. Sadly, cranberries are only in season for a short time.

  867. Barbara Barefield

    I would love to win the Cuisinart and prepare Elana’s recipe for gefilte fish! I could also use it for many other special foods for Passover, such as the horseradish, charoset and desserts. Thank you!

  868. My favorite thing to do in the processor is my grandma’s stuffing recipe, as well as anything that requires onions….mmmmmm!

  869. Barb

    The last thing I made were the Date/Walnut bars and after seeing the recipe for the Chocolate Cranberry Power Bars, they will be next. All delicious!

  870. Laura

    I use my old, beat up food processor for so many things – soups, shredding carrots and cheese, quiche. I would love to win this new one!

  871. Renee

    Hummus is quick and easy in the food processor. I’d like to try making Larabar type recipes for snacks.

  872. My favorite use is to make nut butter or raw kraut.

  873. Cristy VanWart

    I am so excited to try your carrot cake cupcakes for my littlest ones birthday- she will be 1 so I didn’t want something too sweet OR chocolate- and since her brother is allergic to gluten I thought I’d just go around that mountain instead of over it with her! I was searching for a good gf recipe, but needed one that was dairy free as well- (for another person) I was so excited to see you have a vegan frosting recipe- I also will be using whatever passover recipes you have again this year- last year I got RAVE reviews for everything I made- by both GF family and no thank you so much! Cristy

  874. Kristine Stevens

    I already make mashed cauliflower with my immersion blender but would love to try it in a food processor… among a ton of other recipes.

  875. Pesto is my favorite thing to make in the food processor – also purees like pumpkin and other squashes that I roast myself.
    I’ve been waiting to buy a food processor so I can have two to use in my kosher kitchen, one for dairy and one non-dairy.

  876. Mary Catherine @ mcreb414.blogspot.com

    I would love to have a food processor so that I could make my own flours and nut butters! I’ve always wanted make almond meal and oat flour, and would love to create some delicious nut butter flavors (or seed butter flavors for that matter).

  877. Wow…that “ricotta” dip! I wonder if I can make that with my magic bullet. Hmmm…

  878. Elizabeth Lonsberry

    I love your Mustard Lime Chicken but truly need a food processor to make my families favorite carrot and raisin salad. Also I am trying to convert our family favorite cranberry orange muffins which are a joy to make in the processor. Thanks for all you do to make GF easy and interesting.

  879. Dawn Christenson

    Roasted garlic hummas!!!! Absolutely love it! The other thing would be pesto, pesto, pesto, my garden usually bursts with basil. Thank you for all your great recipes!

  880. IF I had a food processor, I would make all of my dips in there. When ever a recipe calls for a food processor, I usually am slaving away over the mortal and pestle.

  881. Rhonda

    I would make huge batches of Cauliflower Rice!!

  882. My favorite and most common food processor recipe is cauliflower rice – thanks to you this has become one my favorite side dishes! Unfortunately my food processor recently bit the dust, so I’ve been having to chop the cauliflower very finely by hand. It has made me fully apprechiate this wonderful kitchen tool – and yearn deeply for a new one! So, this wonderful giveaway opportunity has come at the perfect time :).

  883. Carey

    I wish I had a food processor so I could grate vegetables! They are such a pain to do by hand.

  884. Any of your homemade power bars w/ almond butter added.

  885. Claire

    Fig newtons! Oh how I love thee!

  886. JennM3

    I have a recipe for a Moroccan roasted eggplant spread that uses a food processor. It is delicious! In fact, it’s been a while since I made that…must fix this soon!

  887. Sarah Hoskins

    I think my favorite thing to make in the food processor is PESTO. Mmmm…

  888. Laura Jacoby

    I just love your espresso power bars! I would make all sorts of things if I had a food processor. Right now I use a cutting board and a set of knives. A food processor would make life a lot easier. It is so difficult to work, go to school and eat a gluten-free vegan diet. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen every Sunday morning chopping the needed vegetables I need for the week.

    I have taken your espresso bars to work with me and my coworkers think they are the best brownies they have ever tasted.

  889. Samantha Austin

    Betsy’s multi grain crackers..YUMMMY! My toddler will eat a whole batch.

  890. sam

    i love making your espresso power bars (to which i sub vanilla protein powder for the cocoa)! they’re so addictive.

    i also love making cauliflower rice and cauliflower mash.

  891. April Asher

    Hmmm…tough question since there are so many great recipes to try!
    The Califlower rice seems to be a big hit with followers and I haven’t tried it yet, I think my family would LOVE it!
    AND I’ve been wanting to experiment and create a dairy free pesto, since dairy doesn’t work for me.
    Keep up the great cooking Elana! =)

  892. Johanna Hafey

    I make the chocolate espresso power bars for my daughter who is on the US Naval Academy triathlon team and is gluten-intolerant. She love, love, loves them. This is a key component of my care packages to her.

    Johanna Hafey

  893. Tammy

    Oh I would so love this! I have the vita-mix but all I have for a food processor is a tiny one cup attachment for an ancient blender I have LOL I could so use a nice processor like this! I would try all your recipes above but think I’d start with the double chocolate walnut brownies. yum!

  894. Karen

    I’ve been experimenting with making my own power bars this week as I’m tired of paying a buck and a half a pop for others… and the brand I’m able to eat uses chocolate chips with sugar in them for their newest ones. Grrr!

    So I came up with my own recipe that y’all are welcome to steal:

    1 cup chopped Medjool dates
    1/2 cup almonds
    1/2 cup walnuts
    1/2 cup pecans
    1 ounce unsweetened chocolate (stay with me, I promise this works)
    Pinch of salt
    1 tablespoon vanilla extract

    Grind the nuts in your food processor until chopped up as finely as desired. Chop the chocolate, add to the food processor, then pulse until the chocolate’s in relatively small bits and blended with the nuts.

    Add the chopped dates and run the food processor until all ingredients have blended. Add the vanilla extract and salt, then run the processor until the mix sticks together when pressed with your fingers.

    Press the mixture into an 8″ or 9″ square pan lined with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for several minutes until relatively firm. Pull the pre-cut bar mix out of the pan using the plastic wrap, place on a flat surface, then cut into whatever sized bars you like using a pizza cutter. Store in the fridge… I recommend wrapping them individually as they will stick together but if that doesn’t bother you then they’ll store nicely in plastic zip bags.

    Voila :-)

    The end result: They taste just like cookie dough (especially after you let them sit for a day) and my autistic son who normally doesn’t like the ones from the store has clamored for them. The dates manage to sweeten the chocolate as you’re eating the bar so no sugar necessary!

    If you’re a hardcore raw food person you could probably substitute cacao nibs for the chocolate and vanilla bean seeds for the extract.

  895. mary janssen @ maryj11@suddenlink.net

    My food processor was a wedding gift, so it’s 24 years old. I could use a new one.

  896. Heather O’Brien

    I had a cheapie food processor that leaked and the blade would get stuck. Not good. I tried to make your double chocolate wanut brownies and it just died before I got the chips chopped. I would LOVE to make them again with the proper equipment ;-)

  897. Heather O’Brien

    I had a cheapie food processor that leaked and the blade would get stuck. Not good. I tried to make your double chocolate wanut brownies and it just died before I got the chips chopped. I would LOVE to make them again with the proper equipment ;-)

  898. Leah

    I don’t own a good food processor, so it is easier to chop things by hand, but I love your raw applesauce. The mustard lime chicken looks really yummy also!

  899. Susan

    I would love to have this to help me make soup. I always have to pulverize the ingredients, so that my teenager doesn’t know he’s eating beans and vegetables!

  900. I love to make mayo in a food processor and I’m also interested in trying some pesto recipes and an aioli recipe that i’ve had for months. My food processor died a few months back and I’ve been aching for a new one. This would be heavily used in my kitchen.

  901. Heather

    I don’t have a food processor but would love one. I make your double chocolate walnut brownies with a combination of my mini food chopper and arm-power. To have the bigger processor vs chopper would be wonderful!

  902. Kimber Murillo

    I use my food processor the most for making baby food and butternut squash soup

  903. AndreAnna from Life as a Plate @ lifeasaplate.com

    NINE HUNDRED COMMENTS? My god, woman, you pull a Cuisinart out of your ass and suddenly people take notice? LOL

    As irony would have it, my 10-yr old Cuisnart broke last week while pureeing dates for a sweetener paste. I’ve been using a cheap brand to get me through the next few months with the move and stuff until I can afford to buy a new one.

    I’m sure I’m not eligible though. You know, seeing as how we’re married and all. ;)

  904. Melynda Hoffman

    We are pesto heads!

  905. Fiona

    I’d make brownies! Or something! I’d explore a lot…. have never had a food processor so it’d be fun just to play.

  906. Suzanne P.

    I love making hummus and pie crusts in my food processor. I can’t imagine it any other way!

  907. Sue k.

    My favorite recipe for a food processor is flatbread. I am fond of quiznos Sammies and am always experimentin with ingredients to attempt to reproduce.






  909. Natalie McAvoy

    My favorite thing to make in the food processor is pesto. Love it!!

  910. Christine Costigan

    love, love, love pesto in the summertime (freeze it for winter too)
    that’s what I would do w/ a new food processor!

    just broke mine :(

  911. Mardee

    I am looking forward to trying the gefilte fish recipe!

  912. Victoria

    I just made your gluten free chicken meatballs (chicken-free) this evening before even seeing this latest posting. I used a fake chicken in lieu of the real meat and thought it turned out really tasty.

  913. Vicki Huennekens

    I’ve been hungry for the chocolate biscotti, last time I made it I shared with a friend (who can eat wheat) & she thought it was the best she had ever tasted. It’s very, very good :)

  914. Anya

    raw desserts!

  915. Julie6

    Thanks for making healthy GF food such a pleasure to cook with your recipes. FRESH homemade protein power bars sound divine- gotta try making them this weekend.

  916. Ellen

    i love the mashed cauliflower recipe! delicious.

  917. Oh, my favorite recipe to use the food processor for is kale almond pesto. I LOVE that recipe, and it spawned my deep obsession with kale. Thank you so much for that recipe.

    Thanks for the opportunity to take part in this. :)

  918. Sharon

    Thank you for the opportunity!! If I had a food processor would try out the entire book of vegetarian patés that I have held onto for over 10 years, waiting for the perfect tools!

  919. Maureen

    It would be perfect for the Gazpacho that I make my father every summer.

  920. Denice

    If I had a new food processor, I would love to make fresh salsa using home grown tomatoes, chili peppers, cilantro and onions.

  921. Debbie

    I would love to have this food processor. I have recently given up all grains. I never thought I could eat vegetable because I always got so bloated when I went on a whole grain/ vegetable diet. Well to my surprise it was the grains that were bothering me not the veggies. I had read how you ate Paleo. So I did some investigating and found it really works for my body. So I made your mashed cauliflower and rice cauliflower and I love it and my body loves it. So in my new processor I would try all sorts of new vegetables. Thanks for your blog, I have really learned a lot from you.

  922. Wow, I was just looking at food processors today and wishing I had one after all these years! I love to cook, but have never had a food processor, just a regular old blender!

  923. Chelsea Weaver

    I love making homemade salsa with peppers, tomatoes and onions from my garden. It could not be done if it were not for a great food processor like the Cuisenart. The secret to our outstanding salsa is the fresh veggies chopped to perfection.

  924. Beth

    Mashed cauliflowers with lots of Kerrygold butter!

  925. Sandra Grossman @ sandrayvonne734@hotmail.com

    I have been making your pancakes from the Glunte-Free Almond Flour cookbook for over a year. I would like to be able to make a quadruple batch because I like to freeze them so that I can have them on hand for breakfast. My blender will only let me do one batch at a time. I don’t have a food processor but desperately need one!

  926. Gina

    I do not have a food processor, but if I did, I would LOVE to try your gefilte fish recipe!

    Thanks for such a great website & resource for celiacs–I am not one, but my husband is.

  927. I can’t think of just one recipe that I love to make in my food processor, so I will list a few, pancakes, cinnamon bun muffins, power bars…..etc and the list goes on:)

  928. Joan

    Crust for my Key Lime Pie, cheesecakes and lemon merigue pie. I make it out of out of gluten free cookie crumbs and almond meal. It would be great to make my own almond meal from whole almonds and not have to smash the gf cookies with a rolling pin to make the crumbs. Carrot cake would be alot easier too!

  929. Lynnette

    Pesto Pesto Pesto! I haven’t had my own garden for 5 years while recovering from the last cluster of life’s challenges! Before that I had gardens in Boulder in college, in New York, North Carolina, Kentucky, and Arlington VA. Making pesto from my herb garden was a tradition I’ve longed for since and my son and boyfriend helped dig the lawn away and build the pine frame for 2 raised beds for… Basil Basil Basil that will grow and pine nuts, olive oil and garlic will whirl it into PESTO once again!!!! I cant wait. My old food processor was new 10 prior to my kids births and they’re in college now. I’m proud of it. Despite its kinks and parts that I have to hold on, it works like a charm. Knock on wood! Would I love a new one? ….:-)

  930. Holly Dapore

    I would use a larger food processor (I have a half broken dinky small one now) to pulse the ingredients for my son’s GF/CF/Soy Free/Egg Free chicken nuggets. It would be much quicker if I had a larger FP.


  931. Lydia

    I would make more of your tahini truffles – yum! so good!

    i only have a tiny dinky $15 food processor – with a real one life would be so much easier – as I use mine almost every day!

  932. Julia

    I would love to win this. I would play with it all the time!

  933. Jen

    My trusty 13 year old Cuisinart just gave up the ghost on me! I’m seriously lost without it, I used it so much! My favorite recipe at the moment is pureed cauliflower – but overall it’s probably made more pesto than anything else :)

  934. Susan Pfretzschner

    I process holiday Sweet Potatoes in the Cuisinart adding adding Almond Milk as I process batches. The blade brakes down the fibers to make a smooth consistency. Leftovers are great in muffins, pancakes, etc. My Cuisinart is about 20 years old and it has seen a lot use. I think I’ll make some pasta next.

  935. My favorite food processor recipe changes all the time – at the moment, it’s the raw chocolate fudgy baby candies over at chocolatecoveredkatie.com. I make them with cashews, dates, cacao powder, vanilla, cinnamon, and cacao nibs. They are amazing!

  936. Feiga Mazer

    I made an Asian Edamame dip in the food processor that is Delicious. Also, I don’t know what I would do without my food processor to make my raw blueberry pie. It is one of my staples!

  937. Jayne Chandler

    I love almond butter, lightly roasted from raw organic almonds with a tablespoon of walnut oil processed with the almonds. So tasty and so healthy. A food processor is perfect for making almond butter.

  938. jodirose

    I really want to make those cranberry power bars. I have other dietary restrictions besides GF, and those are something that I actually can eat! I live off-the-grid in northern Minnesota. When I got married, we didn’t have electricity at all, so I didn’t get any small appliances. Now we have a small array of panels and an inverter big enough to run a food processor. My first small appliance investment was a used Kitchenaid, which I love and use all the time. But I still don’t own a food processor!

  939. Amy Bell

    Elana, love you website, my granddaughter has to have glutenfree also and she loves all of your power bars. Would love to have this to make them!!

  940. Lorie H

    I have a TON of recipes that I keep in a special place and have always wanted to try, once I have saved enough to buy a food processor. It’s something that has been on my wish list for a long time, but unfortunately has never made it to our ‘need’ list :) I was hoping to put our costco reward money this summer towards buying one, but if I won one, then I can put the reward money towards some groceries to attempt all the recipes I have been collecting :) I do have a small 3 cup processor that I try to use occasionally for recipes, by adding stuff in small batches, but it just never seems to do the trick. Thanks for the opportunity to win one :)

  941. Sarah Aamot

    I agree about having both a food processor and a vitamix! With 5 kids with food allergies, I do a lot of cooking, so I use both appliances at least once almost every day (if not every day!). I just wish my food processor were bigger!

  942. We love making fresh salsa with our food processor…I’m going to peruse the recipes above for some new ideas

  943. Jennifer @ healnaturally.ca

    Sunflower Seed Pate

    2 cup sprouted sunflower seeds (soaked for 8+ hours)
    1/2 tsp Curry
    1 tsp Tamari
    Pinch of Sea Salt
    1 tbsp lemon juice
    1/4 tsp Cumin

    Add all ingredients to a food processor and process until desired consistency. Delicious with Mary’s crackers!

  944. Chris Lemieux

    My facourite recipe to make with a food processor is gluten-free, in fact grain free, cranberry/almond flour muffins.

    If I won a Cuisinart I would make grain-free shortbread cookies…

  945. Kathy

    I would make your luscious SPINACH CAKE if I had a food processor.
    Thank you for your wonderful recipes, Elena !

  946. Natalie

    If I had a food processor I would definitely make the gluten free mulberry granola! I love Greek yogurt with granola for breakfast and the cinnamon with the dried fruit sounds amazing!

  947. Sheila

    I have made your yummy biscotti before in the food processor, but mine is pretty old, I think I’m due for an upgrade. I love all your recipes!

  948. Michelle

    My favorite thing to make with my small food processor is avocado chocolate mousse.

  949. carmen

    Wow! You are so awesome to give away a prize like this!
    What wouldn’t I make!!!! Recently changed my family’s eating habits to whole, natural and gluteen free food. Many factors, a couple to mention… My 2 yr old daughter had severe eczema and my 4 yr old son has asthma. In just one month of changing our diet, they have improved soooo much! I would love the processor to help disguise healthy eating for my beautiful babies!
    I have your cookbook and follow your blog, would love it to try your recipes that call for the processor. Tops of list would be Betsy’s Multi “Grain” Crackers
    and the others in your book. My kiddos are such huge snackers and with the change in diet, I haven’t been able to find something to replace gold fish and pretzels, of which they really love and miss.
    Thanks for taking the time to read. Just love your blog!!!!
    Love, Carmen

  950. Gail Williams

    I would try to make almond flour with a food processor! My son and I are both allergic to wheat. He was deemed disabled this past year, so he, his sweet wife and their 2 year old son now live with my husband and I. I really have to make everything from scratch. And now, my grandson has been diagnosed with a very bad SOY allergy. Man! Soy is in everything! A food processor would be a lovely tool to have in the kitchen. Congrats to whomever is the lucky winner!!! And, thanks Elana for such a wonderful opportunity (and such a great website)!


  951. Hi Elana,

    I borrow a friend’s food processor some times as I make food for them as well. It makes it really easy to make mango salsa which we love and for any kind of shredded veggie dish such as slaws.

    Most of the time I use my Vita Mix for almost everything, plus hand chopping, grating and a small chopper for onions. A real full sized food processor would be cool. A Cuisinart would be awesome!

  952. Donna

    I would love to try all these recipes! I have tried to make some of your recipes that require a food processor in the past but without one, they did not turn out.
    Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us!

  953. I would make cheese cake with the new food processor. My old processor broke, so now would be a good time to get a new one. I would love this one!

    Thanks for all your recipes, Elana. I always look forward to your posts to come in my email.

  954. Ashley

    I just got diagnosed with CD. I love reading about all of the amazing substitutes for traditional flours. I would definitely use the cuisinart food processor to try to make nut butters, make my own almond or oat flour. I would definitely be using more of Elana’s g-frer recipes using the food processor. :)

  955. kathy

    I love to make my grandmother’s cornbread dressing.

  956. Hi Elana,

    I would make many things, but one of the first would be sauerkraut! Shredding all the cabbage by hand is very time consuming, and making fermented sauerkraut the old fashioned way is a staple in our home.
    Thank you!

    Kris Zanoni

  957. Pat K.

    My favorite thing to make in a food processor is chimichurri sauce! I have a little Oskar food processor that I got as a wedding gift 25 years ago. It still works just fine, but it only has about a 1 cup capacity. I’d like to be able to make enough chimichurri sauce to last for more than one meal!

  958. annette j macdonald @ anthrometrics.com

    I rememeber when I was first diagnosed with food allergies and told that I could possibly have Celiacs as well, I was devastated. I thought, “what will I eat?” “How will I cook it?” I started to read books on cooking for allergies and than I came across your Almond flour book. I couldn’t be happier. Your books, website and recipes fulfilled my needs for something other than vegatables, fruit and meat, my staples. I have read the blogs and have used recipes but have never commented, just not much of a writer. But I want to take this opportunity to say “Thank you.” Really, thank you.

  959. I would make a cheese cake with the new processor. Mine broke, so it would be a good time to win one!

    Thanks Elana, for the recipes. I always look forward to your posts coming in the email.

  960. Kiki

    I would love to make cashew milk.

  961. Lynn McKnight

    I have never been much for cooking or baking alot. Then two years ago I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. So suddenly I am cooking more than I ever have and having to pay more for gluten frr=ee products (whatever I can find in the stores) More recently to try to cut cost a little I am trying more gluten free recipes that I can find. What I would really like to do is start making some gluten free deserts, I really miss deserts. I believe a new food processor would be just real great to have to make more of these desert recipes. Thank you for the opportunity and here’s hoping I win.

  962. Katie Mac

    As a recent college grad, I can honestly admit I need HELP!!!!! Your website is my go-to for staying Paleo and sharing with all my friends! However, I have the bare necessities in my kitchen when it comes to baking: cheap hand mixer, small casserole dish, one cutting board, etc. This food processor would help me spread the “elana-love” even more!!! =)

  963. Angela Sage

    I love you pizza crust recipe – what a blessing. We use it once a week. The processor would be great!

  964. Danielle

    Wow. There are sooo many reasons why I could really use this food processor, but the main reason would be to experiment with different receipes. I am engaged and will be getting married to someone who has Chron’s disease and could really use this great appliance!

  965. Well, the first thing that comes to mind is I would use it to cut up potatoes, because I LOVE hashbrowns, but am nervous to cut up thin sliced things so buy them in bags to mix in with veggies and eggs. If I could just throw them in a cuisinart, DONE! We’ve been looking at them for a year, just haven’t taken the plunge!

  966. Jennifer

    A tie between pesto and pie crusts! :)

  967. Jen Blackmon

    I would make the sesame dip. I PUFFY HEART everything sesame! :)

  968. lisa

    There are so many recipes I would make if I had a food processor — hummus and my mom’s zucchini soup would be at the top of my list!

  969. Kim J

    In my house the question is more of what wouldn’t I use it for. There are several of your recipes that we use, along with a few of my own, and then there are a whole assortment of canning recipes. The food processor is a well used tool in my house.

  970. Amber Hutchison

    I made your delicious Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies, they were so good. Who would of thought that you could make this and lose weight, I loved it thank you! Also, I love my food processor, I have used it so much that, I was snapping it tight the other day and a piece broke off, but still works. They are the best investment.

  971. Lauren

    I love making hummus in my food processor for three reasons: first, it is one of my food staples, second, it is so easy to make on your own but expensive to buy from the grocery store, and third, my versions are always healthier and tastier than the store bought brands.

  972. Linda

    I’d love to make coconut butter in a food processor!

  973. Andrea Bean

    ohhh….and I do make hummus every single week, what a great tool this would be! Great giveaway!

  974. Marion Kaiser

    I’ve used my blender for your pancake recipe on page 23 of your Gluten Free Almond Flour Cookbook. I also use my Hamilton Beach Milkshake maker for whipping up wet ingredients. I have a Cuisinart Breadmaker that does great gluten free breads on the gluten free cycle #9 but I don’t own a food processor so I’d love to win that new Cuisinart. I’m going to try your Pecan Shortbread from page 106 next.

  975. Stacy

    My favorite recipe is, hands down, your almond power bars. They are so good!!!

  976. I would use a food processor to make various pates and dips as well as for grinding nuts into flour and making crusts for raw, dairy-free cheezecakes and pies.

  977. I would make baby food, hummus and mock ‘larabars’! I have a blendtec and love it, but like you said, you still need a cuisinart for other purposes! I gave mine to my mother in law who needed one, and now I am missing it!!

  978. Kale almond pesto, for sure.

  979. Andrea

    What a fabulous giveaway! Ever since I discovered how easy it is to make mayo in the food processor, that is my new favorite thing to make!

  980. some of my favorite things to make are cauliflower fried rice and homemade nut butter!!!

  981. OOh! Fingers crossed! Right now I just have a blender, and use that for things I should probably have a food processor for – like pesto, mmm mmmm pesto – I love it!

  982. My favorite recipe using a food processor is gluten-free carrot cake!

  983. Rose Hornbeck

    I would love to win the food processor :) I recently lost 50 lbs and have a few more to go. My doctor at the wellness center gave me your website info and I am trying your recipes. I also purchased your cookbook at Barnes & Noble. I know I would put the food processor right to work, starting with the fig newtons.

  984. Jackie H

    Recently, we’ve discovered how to knead dough in our food processor and now I am, again, in love with my food processor…though it’s sounding a bit tired lately from all the bread made! LOL!

  985. Barbara Allen

    The Espresso Power Bars are what I would make if I had a food processor, no cranberries involved, chocolate is sacred. I need to be gluten free and I have an allergy to eggs. I am a musician and I need sustained energy throughout the day, often late into the night. Power Bars would fit into my bag easily.

  986. I love to make hummus, but I’ve never been able to duplicate the texture provided by a cuisinart. I’ve been craving one of these machines for years.

  987. I have a wonderful roasted vegetable soup that I’d love to make in the Cuisinart! :)

  988. Andrea Ward

    Chocolate hazelnut spread!!!

  989. Carolyn Ann Pivarnik @ covegirl79.blogspot.com

    If I had a food processor it would be so simple to blend my ingredients together, I would like to try your crackers or Fig Newtons. Oh how I miss those.

  990. debbiejo

    I would make a carrot cake – my friend’s mom always used the food processor to shred the carrots and I loved the texture of her carrot cakes (and helping her make them since we didn’t have to grate carrots for what seemed like an eternity!)

  991. Chris & Kate @ JustLikeNone.com

    Our food processor is used for pesto and bruschetta, more than for anything else, but we also use it for pulverizing nuts.

  992. I love your carrot banana muffins and I make my own baby food. I only have a mini food processor and am always borrowing my friend, Natalie’s larger processor. I would LOVE to win this & experiment more!

  993. Amy Whitehurst

    I want to make the Hazelnut spread and the stuffed mushrooms! I’ve never used a food processor and I want to learn! Pick me! :)

  994. I love to make hummus and fresh salsa wiht mine.

  995. Stacy

    Mashed cauliflower.

  996. Yan

    I love how pie crusts come out perfectly in a food processor.

  997. Cheri rose

    I would use a food processor to make gluten free granola. It would be wonderful! Thank you for this opportunity!

  998. Pamela @ elanaspantry

    I like to make a nut crust for my pies with my food processor. I’d like to make your crackers as well!

  999. Jamie Brummel

    Oh, I know! All these amazing recipes I learned at a two-day raw foods class I took in February. Raw Tacos, Guacamole, Hummus, Falafel,Tabouli, Chimchurri, Pesto … My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

  1000. We love both our blender and food processor. Especially when we make home made dough for pizza in the processor and fruit smoothies in the blender. Great eats and treats for a Friday evening or anytime.

  1001. Michelle Apt

    I would process cabbage to make homemade saurkraut or make almond butter with my homegrown almonds. Or make many other yummy meals.

  1002. Anne

    My favorite recipe to make in a food processor is Raw Chocolate Mousse made with avocados. Boy, do I need a new food processor!

  1003. Joan Snyder

    Mashed Cauliflower – How can it taste like potatoes? I don’t know, but it does. I have even fooled my family. Yippee!

  1004. Lin Hardick @ GOODFOOD

    I would definitely use the Cuisinart to make Mustard Lime Chicken. No question!

  1005. Dale

    Mmmmmmmm … Salsa …

    I hope I win!

  1006. One of my favorite recipes to use a foodproccessor with is a hummus dip with veggies or a glutenfree cracker.

  1007. Megan @ Healthy Hoggin' @ healthyhoggin.com

    My favorite recipe using a food processor is hummus! I also love crumbling cauliflower to make a healthy “rice.” Yum!!

  1008. Paige G.

    Oh man! if i won this i’d make something raw…i dunno, raw soup maybe? I haven’t had a working food processor in years and my blender sux….so every time i see a raw or GF recipe that uses a processor i have to pass it over :(…seriously crossing my fingers on this one!

    My favorite recipe, for which I drag out my ancient GE food processor (which I continue to think is going to die in the middle of my processing something!), is my “Fabulous Carrot Cake.” First I chop the pecans which I use in the frosting. Then I chop the walnuts which I use in the cake. Finally I chop the carrots for the cake. This cake is really appropriately named. My fellow teachers frequently ask “Isn’t anybody having a birthday? We need her to make another carrot cake!”

  1010. Dale

    Mmm … Salsa …

    That’s what I would make. I hope I win!

  1011. Jane

    I’ve always wanted to make pesto! Food processer = way better than hand dicing that much basil. :)

  1012. Kathy

    Oh gosh, I have a small food processor & I hae wanted a larger one for so long. There are so many things I could make if I had a larger one. I would love to try your double choc. walnut brownies though :).

  1013. Barbara

    Mayonnaise! It’s easy and healthier than anything from the store.

  1014. Penny McMahan

    I love to make large batches of salsa!

  1015. Steven

    I would make the Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies if I had one of these. Awesome giveaway.

  1016. Norma Heckendorf

    My food processor is OLD! I bought it over 25 years ago when first married – in fact it may be even older than that! I used to use it to make bread dough, pretty much every day when raising the children. Now, however, bread is not on the menu! So, now I think my favorite thing to make is the filling for chocolate cream pie. Sweet potato and chick pea hummus is also a favorite. Thank you for your delicious recipes – you have opened up a whole new world of tasty dining for me! Norma

  1017. tina

    nut based protein bars- yum!!!!

    or banana soft serve… even yummier!

  1018. Tirzah

    Mmmm…. Another great giveaway!!! Currently my favorite thing to make in my food processor are Green Smoothies. My kids are loving them and they are packed full of yummy goodness for them!!!!

  1019. This is nice. But I can’t say that I have a favorite recipe – there are just too many to choose from. And, truth to tell, I just like to eat. But considering the amount of allergies that I have, something like this food processor sounds like a good idea. Guess I’ll have to look into that. But can it make powdered sugar?
    Thank you,

  1020. Charlotte Moore

    I made your multi grain crackers and they were great. I hope to do more when I retire in a few weeks. You have so many good recipes I want to try. Can’t wait to get your cupcake cookbook that I have on order.

    I would love to have a food processor like this.

  1021. Eve Ilsen

    I have an old fading warhorse of a food processor that just lost its handle—but it still works. I used it last shabbos to try your gefilte fish recipe and it was WONDERFUL. We found out that even better than horseradish, we liked it with honey mustard.

    But my all-ou favorite is the spinach cake with pine nuts. Very Sepharadi, and perfect for Passover.

    I can’t even count the number of folks I’ve turned on to your website.
    Thank you, from all of us.

  1022. I would make my own granola, power bars and larabar’s! I try to use my blender but I can never achieve the texture I want. :-)

  1023. Laurie Vinson

    I have never owned one but would love the opportunity:-) If I won I would first make the Chocolate Espresso Power Bars as a snack for my family and then I would love to try the Lime Chicken.

    Thanks for your continued generosity and education of a GF lifestyle!!


  1024. Karol Dean

    Homeade raw applesauce. Fresh is always better!

  1025. Sherry Osadchey @ sherryosadchey.com

    GEFILTE FISH! Definitely. It’s been so long since I’ve been able to have any. I’m looking forward to having yours.

  1026. Terry

    My absolute favorite recipe that requires a food processor is my salsa recipe, which is a pretty standard salsa recipe, but I add corn, black beans and cubed avocado, so it becomes like a meal in itself. Put it on top of brown rice or quinoa and you’ve got a quick meal. Yum!

  1027. Linda

    Lots of salsa for the mexican food when all the family comes over!

  1028. Melissa

    The chocolate expresso power bars, YUM!!!!

  1029. Charles Castleberry

    I love making paleo humus in the processor with zucchini, tahini and olive oil!

  1030. Kim

    Green smoothies…yum!!!

  1031. Karen C.

    I had a Cuisinart but it broke. I would absolutely love to win this giveaway. I have made your orange cake before with the food processor before it died. My dd loved it. It was her birthday cake.

  1032. Sandy Baker

    If I had a food processor, I’d make my own mayonnaise, pesto, butter shortbread cookies, small batches of cookies, and even bread crumbs. I have always wanted to get a food processor, but there just isn’t enought money after paying bills to get one.

    I would hope to be considered for this wonderful gift!

    I’m sure that my girls (hens) would also enjoy the extras!

    Sandy Baker

  1033. Kim

    I would definitely make your homemade Gefilte fish! I’m nervous as this is my first GF pesach, we are not having a Seder at my house and I’m already worried about cross contamination. I would love to make and take my own fish! Thanks for your blog!!

  1034. Sandra Benish

    It’s a family traditional recipe – pickles & bologna YUMMY

  1035. Erin Crum


  1036. Adriana

    I like pureeing fruits and vegetables to add to many different foods for additional nutrition. My mini food processor is nice, but I have been drooling over bigger food processors so I wouldn’t have to do so many batches.

  1037. Theresa

    Wow! Could I use a new food processor! The one I’m using now is dying quickly. I agree about having a Vita-Mix and a food processor. Love your recipes. Appreciate all that you give of yourself. God bless you richly!

  1038. jamie guidry

    Currently I’m using a mini chopper/grinder to mince foods, grind flax seeds, almonds etc. A regular size food processor would be a blessing. There are too many recipes to choose from. Plus quite a few I haven’t had the time to try yet. Can’t wait to try them all! Thanks for having the drawing and for putting up such a great gluten free recipe site.

    Thanks again for all you do, Jamie

  1039. Marsha

    Ohm Elana, how I would love to be the winner of this food processor! It is the ONE kitchen tool I dream of but have never bought!

    I would make your Mustard Lime Chicken recipe if I had this processor. This would make the sauce for the chicken mix together like a dream!

    I do love your blog!

  1040. Adrienne

    I have a mini food processor that I use to make small batches of dips. I love to make hummus, zucchini dip, salsa and pesto. It would be wonderful to have a full sized food processor to make bigger batches and more of a wide variety of foods. I often resist making recipes calling for a food processor, because I have such a small machine. I would love to be able to bring healthy dips to get togethers.

  1041. KellyBelly

    What a cool looking machine, I could leave that sitting out on the counter. I would love it to make pesto and chopping nuts, seeds and fruit for use in granola bars.

  1042. Jeremy

    I’d like my wife to have one of these to make her time in the kitchen quicker and easier. Thanks

  1043. I love making hummus and chocolate hazelnut spread in the food processor. Sadly, mine is a min-prep one and doesn’t hold all that much.

  1044. Debbie Garber

    I have never used a food processor. I would love to try the fish recipe. The one you recently had on your website. I just started using almond flour and really appreciate your tried, true and tested recipes. Thank you. I really appreciate them.

  1045. Elizabeth

    I am so excited to make ice cream! even though I think a blender works better. but whatever, I’ll make it work… :)

  1046. Brett jones

    I would employ this handsome machine in my production of biriyani sauce!

  1047. Jami Fynboh

    What a lovely food processor! Mine is about 25 plus years old, I paid $2.00 at a garage sale…it does the job, but in a slow kind of way!

  1048. Jess

    Drunken Pie Crust!
    No, seriously – a bit of vodka in the pie crust batter somehow works a bit of magic so that it comes out beautifully

  1049. Marge Ellis

    So many things I could make with this!! Pesto, hummus, tomato sauce. I would love it!

  1050. my favorite recipe is carrot banana muffins. I would love to win this as my last food processor died last Thanksgiving

  1051. Ron Alberty

    I make a delicous blueberry\banana protein shake for breakfast most mornings. I also use almond milk to satisfy a gluten/dairy/soy/egg food sensitivity problem. Would gladly share the recipe if requested.


    Ron Alberty

  1052. Kai

    If I had this processor I would make chocolate pudding:
    2 avocados, 1 banana, 1/4 cacoa powder, 1/4 c dates and tsp vanilla

  1053. Hets

    I love to make fresh salsa in the summer with my processor.

  1054. Geri

    I would make your chocolate hazelnut spread with it! Yum!

  1055. EllenW

    YUM! If I had a food processor I would make pesto and then hummous right after that.

  1056. Erika Bailey

    I would make the mashed cauliflower. My family enjoys pureed turnips and we’d love to try this one out as another substitute for potatoes.

  1057. Julia Mielish

    I would make nut butters, something my tiny little chopper doesn’t do a good job of. I would also like to try making GF energy bars. Anything for my GF hubby!

  1058. gluten free veg @ wheatlessandmeatless.com

    ive got a teeny cuisinart, and if i had a big one like this, oh wow would i make many more gluten free vegetarian burgers, which i live on!

  1059. JT

    For once, I would love to be able to chop up onions without shedding some tears~! :’D
    I have a mini food processor, but have been saying for months that it’s time to upgrade…

  1060. Tonya Pacheco


  1061. Jennifer

    My hummus, your bindi bars and artichoke almond pate from Ali’s Whole Life Nutrition cookbook. Yum!

  1062. Sony

    It would be great to have a big food processor. I just my cuisinart mini-prep to do everything from pestos to chutneys.

  1063. Tonya Pacheco

    I’ve never had a food processor and would love to own one. It would be great not to have to chop veggies by hand for omletes. My 6 year old daughter loves to help cook, so she would

  1064. Julie H

    The food processor is the perfect way to mix the dough for gluten free tortillas.

  1065. Ginny

    Nothing beats pesto, in my book! A classic, spinach-basil…heavy on the basil. Yum!!’

  1066. Robin

    Chocolate Espresso Power Bars are a staple in our house, sometimes with the espresso and sometomes without, either way they are scrumptious!!!!

  1067. Emile

    I want to try to make my own crackers. Great giveaway – thanks!!

  1068. Heather

    You gotta make pesto with a food processor!

  1069. Margaret

    This looks awesome! I would love to make some nice asian cole slaw, or may a pureed carrot ginger soup. Yum.

  1070. My favorite salad, which I make for Shabbat every week, is raw beats & carrots shredded with a shredding disk in a food processor. Then I add sea salt, cumin, lemon juice and olive oil. Massage in using hands and refrigerate 30 min before serving. Simple healthy goodness and the color is just beautiful.

  1071. Erin

    I would make Fig Newtons if I had the food processor!

  1072. Danielle Pazdan @ mythirtyone.com/danipazdan

    If I had this food processor what wouldn’t I make?! I have a small 2 cup food processor now and feel soooo limited.

  1073. My favorite lately has been carob and nut bars. Full of good things and just a touch of sweetness when I have a little craving. I also add some tart dried cherries to add a little contrast to the sweetness of carob. The cuisinart is a must for this recipe and mine is about 20 years old…some of the plastic is chipped off the bottom but I just haven’t bitten the bullet yet to buy a new one. Would love to win it!
    Thanks for the giveaway and all of your fabulous recipes.

  1074. Allie U

    LOTS of HUMMUS! (or maybe those fig newtons.. they sound awesome!)

  1075. Stardust

    Double Chocolate Fudge Brownies!! If I had a food processor that would be the first item on my list. Yummmmm

  1076. meredith

    Hummus, nut butters, banana carrot muffins (a fav. around here!), your power bar recipe – my old food processor gets a workout and would love to be retired and replaced by a new one!

  1077. Kimberly Focht

    Wow, a new food processor would be great…mine is on it’s last legs. We love to make homemade hummus in it as well as cookies and such.

  1078. joelle

    I love making pizza crust, power bars, and oatmeal made with oat groats! You can do so much a food processor!!

  1079. I would use it to make a delicious raw cheesecake.

  1080. Christine Hsin

    Hummus! All kinds-roasted red pepper and black bean/lime/cumin are my favorites.

  1081. Minna Lopez

    Spinach basil pesto and your pumpkin bars!

  1082. Stephani Sawyer @ cover2covermemories.com

    I love to make a gluten-free chocolate cake with the food processor, but I really need a larger one!

  1083. Irene

    I love making chocolate biscuits and cauliflower puree!!

  1084. Kristyn

    Would make pie crusts a dream!

  1085. I would love to have a food processor to make it easier to make charoset for the upcoming holiday!!! And I would love to be able to make my own nut flours and meals for baking.

  1086. Noel

    In my 3 cup food processor (my large one) I like to make Tzaziki sauce and hummus. I would make pesto if I were able to grow more basil — I have tons of cilantro this year, so maybe I’ll make cilantro pesto. I pass up a lot of recipes that require a 12 cup processor — unless I think the Vitamix will work well. Or I make stuff in batches.
    With a 12 cup I think I would try make a copycat “Lara Bar”, your spinach cakes, and…… I need to go check out your food processor recipes!
    : )

  1087. Amy

    My very favorite meal to make in the food processor is chicken salad. I love to process it until it’s almost a smooth paste-like consistency. :)

  1088. Golden

    I use my dinky, leaking, underpowered food processor to make pesto and salsa.

  1089. Amie

    Dear Elana,
    My mom was diagnosed with celiacs disease 38 years ago. As you can imagine we have bought a lot of gluten free cook books and tried a lot of different gluten free recipes.  Your book, recipes and advice has been the most successful gluten free information we have ever found.  Every recipe we’ve tried has been wonderful.  Thank you so much for such amazing inspiration and information!
    All my best, Amie Preston

  1090. Stephanie

    I’d make your chocolate cranberry power bars if I had that baby! Thanks for your hard work, Elana. I’ve benefited from it.

  1091. Vanessa W.

    Hi Elana,

    Wow–this is an awesome giveaway! Everyone in our family has food sensitivities and I cook all of our meals as it is too challenging to eat out–esp with the soy allergies. This processor would definitely make food prep easier–I would love to try the muffins, spinach cake and crackers. Yum!!!

    Bless you for this website–it’s a huge help for me and I often give your web site info to people in the grocery store!

  1092. Nancy

    I make onion dip with carmelized onions in my food processor! My daughter loves it!

  1093. My favorite recipe is spring rolls. We process the filling (broccoli, carrots, onion, etc.).

  1094. Nance

    So far I think my favorite recipes using a processor would be any type of Larabar creation or deviled eggs…the filling gets so smooth. The processor I have right now was an old one I found at a second hand store with just two blades. It would be nice to have an updated model and one so nice as what your giving away! Thanks for the opportunity to upgrade:)!

  1095. Eva

    OMG, If I were to win the Cuisinart food processor, I would love to try Jelly donut cupcakes, fig newtons which I LOVE as a kid, Spinach Cakes, Cauliflower rice, Rice which we use to eat daily and we have missed so much. Spicy Power bars and Baked Chicken Meatballs. And these have lots of veggies in them so my daughter will be able to eat them. Eating veggies by them self doesn’t set well with her. But this way she will be able to tolerate her veggies. We have enjoyed the recipes in you book, which I have tried some and there GREAT. I’m at the age now(62) were if we can fix it another way than try it instead of buying it. My daughter has Down Syndrome so she can’t cooker for her self, I do all her meals and we eat together, because dad has no problem eating anything. So if I were to will the Food Processor my daughter and I
    could be eating a lot better and trying a lot more of your recipes.

  1096. Mikaela

    I have been in the market for a food processor- would love to make almond flour in larger batches (i’ve been using my coffee grinder) :) :). I also would re-try your jelly donut muffin recipe… it didn’t quite turn out right (but was still delicious) the first time I tried it. Thanks for this opportunity, and for doing what you do!

  1097. renee

    I would make fresh vegan pesto with a food processor, if I had one.
    Delicious basil and avocado and almonds with virgin olive oil.

  1098. Barbara Kupferschmidt @ barbk13@sbcglobal.net

    I LOVE my Cuisinart products! I use my old reliable one(older than yours) to make everything, not always gluten free, but its such a workhorse! I just bought the ice cream maker by Cuisinart, and can’t wait to make frozen yogurts and sorbets!

  1099. Briita

    I think food processors are amazing for pesto, humus, chopping slicing and grating all veggies, making coleslaw, making bread, making yummy walnut butter, and the list goes on and on!

  1100. Magess

    Just the other day I used a food processor to grind lamb and make meatballs.

  1101. Sunny

    The ricotta dip and cashew cheese recipes are my favorite. Thank you for giving us a chance to win this dream food processor.

    A 3 cup is just not enough to even make pate correctly. I would love to learn to make basil pesto!

  1102. Shauna

    I would LOVE a food processor! I don’t have one, but would love to make your food processor recipes… especially the muffins! :)

  1103. Suzanne Truong

    I don’t have a food processor but I have a little chopper that I love. I use it for LOTS of things, nearly every day and sometimes I have to wash it and use it again the same day! My favorite thing to make is hummus which I make about once per week; it’s a great snack food with lots of healthy protein. If I had a food processor, I imagine it would be like my chopper only bigger! And I could make larger recipes. Being gluten free I prepare a lot from scratch so I would love the processor!

  1104. Elana!

    Ive made your carrot date muffins before and i use a little processor for everything even when its spilling out, after finding your site threw a friend, your recioies have really encouraged me to stay gluten free and eat the foods we were designed to eat, the variety of choices youve come up with are amazing and i am seeing a difference in my family especially in my little ones. We are a military family and i have the oppurtunity to stay home so i have enjoyeed cooking and to make good food can take some prep time and i think thats why the average person eats so much proccesed foods. With a processor i would just throw everything in there and voila!!! Oh and ive noticed a big difference in my baby by eating gluten free, his tummy is never upset!!


  1105. Heather Shaughnessy

    I love your chocolate walnut brownie recipe which calls for a food processor but I don’t have one, so I have to mix everything by hand :( Would love to have a food processor!

  1106. Ashley

    My food processor broke recently. Vegan pesto and edamame hummus and to try some of your delicious sounding recipes : )

  1107. Jenny Haydon

    If I had a food processor~ I would make….the possibilities are endless. Smoothies, pesto, almond meal~ you name it I would be doing it with the food processor. Thanks :)

  1108. Deb Frauson

    Hi – I justed wanted to let you know I’m a huge fan of your website. I have really changed the way I eat (I’m proud to say I’ve lost 20 pounds) and I often refer to your website for recipes. I heard about you by word-of-mouth here in Jackson, Wyoming.

    One of my favorite recipes is your “pumpkin custard”.

    Have a great day and thank you so much for all the wonderful food options your website provides.

    Cheers! Deb

  1109. Paul Jensen @ psjensen.blogspot.com

    This is a warm breakfast substitute for oatmeal. Warm and hearty with just a hint of sweetness from the apple. It’s easy and it’s fantastic!

    Nutty Hot Cereal

    Time: 10 mins
    1 C almonds or pecans
    1 medium sized apple, quartered
    1 Tbsp cinnamon (This will help increase insulin sensitivity)
    1 C water
    Makes 2 cups
    Place all ingredients in blender and puree.
    Pour into medium sized saucepan. You may need to rinse the blender with an additional
    ¼ cup of water to get all the cereal. Bring to a boil. Reduce temperature immediately and
    allow to simmer for 5 minutes covered. If thicker consistency is desired, allow to simmer

  1110. From your list of faves, definitely mashed cauliflower. From my list of faves? Falafel. I’ve broken cheap food processors making falafel; you need something strong and durable like the original, the Cuisanart!

  1111. Wanda

    If I won the food processor I would LOVE to make alot of these nut butters from scratch, instead of buying them. I’d also like to make the veggie wraps, puring carrots, red cabbage, onions and making home made humus. Of course, my mouth is drooling after reading Elana’s recipes, as always. Sounds all Yummy!

  1112. marie warner @ mrschips77@yahoo.com

    i put all of the ingredients of whatever recipe i am using and wa la, done, love it. i also use it for protein shakes with extra ingredients that you suggest for gluten free living. love your site……

  1113. Adria

    I would love to make meatballs or meatloaf in the cuisinart!

  1114. Laurena

    Beet Humus, the recipe that you posted some time ago became a favourite of mine

    I enjoy raw foods as much as possible so I juice and dehydrate the pulps a processor would be fantastic tool thanks for all the great recipes

  1115. Blythe Baeuchle

    With my IBD, I find that the better my food has been ‘broken down’ already for me, the better. With a Cuisinart, I’m sure that I would try very creatively to puree more veggies and fruits, finding ways to make them much more yummy, with spices and different settings, etc.

  1116. Yay! This would be so great! I would make almond milk and then I would make these yummy cupcakes that for some weird reason require a food processor and that would only be the beginning!

  1117. Denise

    Oh my gosh this is perfect timing! I’ve been living with a tiny food processor and just killed it last week. And I’m a huge fan of yours! Your recipes have made such a difference in the way my family eats, Elana. Thank you!

  1118. Regina

    Pesto, and hummus are my favorite things. But then I shred cabbage a lot in my food processor.

  1119. diane

    I don’t own a food processor, but if I did I would make the double chocolate walnut brownies! Thanks for all the great recipes.

  1120. Lynn Janes

    I think my favorite recipes that use the food processor are the mashed cauliflower or the espresso bars! My favorite recipe all time though is still the vanilla cupcakes ;-) Thanks

  1121. lassie barile

    I love your simple bread, your sandwich bread and your spicy slaw. I don’t have a food processor but would love to own one

  1122. Christina

    I would love to have a food processor! It would make it so much easier to make gluten free bread for my nephew.

  1123. Wendi

    Mashed Cauliflower is one of my favorite sides!

  1124. Heather

    I sould defintately use one for gluten free/ dairy free smoothies

  1125. Jen Cipolla

    Hmmm….what would I make? Probably your chocolate hazelnut spread! YUM!! But there are really so many things I’d like to make that would be alot easier with a large food processor.

  1126. Kathryn Richards

    I’d love to get this make the fig newtons. That’s one dessert I miss since going gluten free. :-)

  1127. Sunny

    The ricotta cheese dip is my favorite. a 2 cup processor is just not big enough.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win a dream machine.

  1128. Regina

    I rock an ancient Cuisinart food processor that my mom got before I was born (I’m 19), and yet I use it constantly, most often to rice cauliflower or make pesto. It is getting a little dicreped however…

  1129. Dariece

    If I had a food processor there are a lot of things I would make, but without a doubt, the first thing I would make is your Chocoate Cranberry Power Bars!

  1130. Timm

    I would enjoy using the food processor to make one of my favorite gyro recipes.

  1131. Christine @ Nourish the Budding Lotus @ buddinglotusbody.com/nourish

    I love to make raw truffles with my food processor. Mint Cacao are my favorite :)

  1132. ScottMGS

    First up would be salsa!

  1133. Jessica

    If I won the food processor I would make the multigrain crackers!

  1134. Velvia

    I have been gluten free for three years now. I love your website and use it often for recipes. I love your cranberry tart with the nut crust. A food processor is great for making crushing nuts.

  1135. Maureen

    I mainly use a food processor for making my own almond meal and coconut flour, shredding carrots and zucchini in addition to making hummus. Unfortunately, I attempted making almond butter for the first time and it overheated and died on me (not a Cuisinart brand). There’s a lot of foods I had to cut out of my son’s and my diet because of health reasons, so the food processor is vital for our well being.

  1136. Jenn

    I would love to try the double chocolate walnut brownies and also some pesto!

    Thanks as always for your wonderful and empowering recipes!

  1137. Irene

    I would make the carrot banana muffins with a new food processor because last time I tried to make something with dates in the blender, it was really hard to get the gooey sticky mess out. A food processor would make it so much easier plus I love banana carrot muffins! Yum!

  1138. I’d definitely make pesto but I’m also very interested in making peanut butter or other nut butters.

  1139. Lajuana

    I don’t have one now, but when I did, I used it to speed the chopping time for my vegetables

  1140. Margaret

    I would make home made nut butter…..mmm.mmmm.mmm. Right now I have a very small processor that doesn’t cut it for a family of 5. This would be perfect!

  1141. Beth

    I love your sight but my most recent food processor recipe of yours was definitely the fig (I only had dates) tapenade. YUMMY! Thanks for all the great info.:))))

  1142. Maria

    I really like your mashed cauliflower, Elana, but hummus is a favorite of mine as well. By the way, I just saw a reference in “Living Without” to your new cupcake book. Congratulations and blessings!

  1143. Katie

    I like to use my food processor for just about everything! This weekend it will be used to make chicken apple meatballs. Your mustard lime chicken recipe is on my list of ones to try!

  1144. Stephanie

    Strawberry Rhubarb Tart!

  1145. Beth

    I love your site!! Fig tapenade in the food processor is for sure a favorite. I did use dates instead and tasted great!

  1146. My favorite recipe usig the food processor is homemade summer salsa with a variety of heirloom tomatoes, lots of garlic, onions, hot banana peppers, sea salt and cilantro. Praise God for His summer bounty! I would be happy to win this new food processor.

  1147. Carolyn

    I love using the food processor to make pie crust, it makes life SO much easier. :)

  1148. Claire Roman

    I absolutely love all your recipes and have been cooking gluten free for many years. Now that I am older and ill, it has become difficult to chop, knead, etc. The food processor would make this much easier.

  1149. Deanna Askin @ stuffifeedbrian.com

    I have been addicted to my food processor lately. I actually made your mashed cauliflower two nights ago and topped it with steamed carrots, snap peas, and a garlic almond based cream sauce! I think my dream kitchen would have 2 food processors to handle all my use!

  1150. bridget

    The question is what wouldn’t I make; right now I have a very small food processor more for chopping small things. I have to make things in batches and get frustrated!

  1151. Delyana

    I would love to have a food processor.I love your web site.Even though I am not gluten intolerant I still enjoy your delicious recipes.I have been wanting to have a food processor for a long time, so I can make my own sauces,especially pesto and also so I can grind all these almonds, seeds and nuts for your tasty desserts.

  1152. KLee Subik

    I like to make my pie crust in a food processor!

  1153. Maureen L Custer

    After my recent surgery for colon cancer I am thankfully cancer free. I have had to radically readjust my concept of eating. With this food processor I would be able to make many of your recipes such as the gefilte fish, and the pesto and the amazing bread recipes and be able to eat more nutritious and digestive friendly meals. I love reading your blog every day. Thanks!!

  1154. Harvitron

    I would love to own a food processor! The absolute first thing I’d use it for is making breadcrumbs. I actually have a whole bag of dry bread ready to go, but it has to wait until I either go visit my parents or win a Cuisinart!

  1155. Pam Frydman-Roza

    I have coveted the latest and greatest Cuisinart since I saw it recently in a store. I bought my “original” Cuisinart when my daughter Shira was born. She is now 27 years old! I love it, but would appreciate the new and improved model even more.
    My favorite Elana’s Pantry food processor recipe is the latest one I tried (last night)-Chocolate Cranberry Power Bars. They are simple and quick to make, healthy and incredibly delicious. My family and co-workers love them. I am keeping a batch in my freezer (since they thaw almost immediately) for when friends drop by. Thank you Elana! (And thanks for our now favorite Friday night Roast Chicken recipe too.)

  1156. Caroline

    I don’t have a food processor….but I use my blender ALL THE TIME. My favourite thing to make in the blender is home-made pureed soups. yum. Hummus is a staple around our household too.

  1157. Chantell Fenner

    I would LOVE this Food Processor because then I can make crackers for my 3 little boys who each struggle with food allergies.

  1158. Kim Hansen @ kim@boulder.swri.edu

    I have lots of favorite things I make in a food processor, but I think the best is the one my 14 year old son has been making us for a few years now…his wonderfully fresh salsa with lots of cilantro. It tastes even better coming from his work, from riding his bike to get the ingredients to making it and serving it. We’re still working on the whole cleaning up afterwards part.

  1159. Kelli

    No contest, Hummus! This is perfect timing, because the Cuisinart food procssor that I have had since before my children were born is breaking. I have to hold the bowl down for it to work.

  1160. kathryn blair

    I would love to make ANY of your recipes in a food processor! I use tons of recipes from your book; bread, crackers, cake, etc. I am almost 49 and have NEVER owned a food processor. My blender and mixers are both over 12 years old. My whole family eats grain free and I am the designated cook! lol What a time-saving blessing to have one.

  1161. Theresa

    Elana, My favorite thing to do with a food processor is to process all my veggies and its really a time saver for my carrots in carrot cake. so even though I have not tried you carrot banana muffin I really want to. My food processor is a mini one now but I sure would like a full size one to make things easier. My journey is just beginning with you and almond flour. so far I have tried 3 recipe’s out of your book. Thanks for the give away, thanks for the book and thanks for your website and always commenting and helping.

  1162. Cynthia Winter

    I would use it to make hummus and pie crusts.

  1163. Eselepee

    If my food processor had not broken last month, I would be snacking on some “Betsy’s Multi “Grain” Crackers” right now…

    Good luck to everyone!!!

  1164. Jamie Schmid

    I love to make cream soups in the food processor. Since I cannot add wheat flour to my recipes, I use the food processor to add all kinds of pureed beans and veggies to the stock. These give a nice texture to the soup, and the kids eat their veggies…all hidden in a steaming bowl of comfort!!

  1165. Sarah Chana Radcliffe @ sarahchanaradcliffe.com

    If I had a cuisinart I’d make double chocolate mocha biscotti for Pesach (Passover) – and a million other things too!I’d make lots and lots of potato kugels, homemade horseradish for the Seder, homemade gefilte fish, brownies, charoset (chopped walnuts & apples), carrot cakes and carrot salads and all sorts of yummy things that a full-time working mother & grandmother simply cannot contemplate without a super-duper kitchen helper like a big, new cuisinart!

  1166. Kaylan Mills @ twitter.com/millsks

    I would LOVE love love to have a Cuisinart to make fresh salsa, pesto and hummus (3 staples for me) on a regular basis. Not to mention countless other things!

  1167. Patricia Kemp

    I don’t have a food processor, but would love to have one for pesto, olive tapenade, and your wonderful mustard lime chicken. Oh, yummy!

  1168. Elise

    I recently found your site and love it! I will soon be moving and once again have my own kitchen! I can’t wait to make kale chips and cupcakes. With a Cuisinart I would make hummus…mmmm glorious hummus!

  1169. Lynn Marie

    I would make lovely key lime vegan cheesecakes – it’s the one major recipe I haven’t been able to manage with an immersion blender and stand mixer. There’s no way to get the tofu properly incorporated with the other ingredients without an awesome food processor!

  1170. Pearl Laroff

    If I had the food processor I would make asparagus pesto and your chocolate hazelnut spread. My food processor died. I love your recipes.

  1171. Corinne

    Pesto with sunflower seeds and local basil!

  1172. Dorothy Turek

    Starting a vegetable garden — Salsa! Dip! Soup! Slaw! Quiche! Veggieburgers and Cakes!

  1173. I love making homemade almond butter in a food processor!

  1174. Julia Hebert

    If i had the food processor, I would make some oh so yummy carrot banana muffins! My husband and I love your recipes! Thanks!

  1175. Kathy

    My very favorite food processor recipe happens to be Carrot Banana Muffins! They are so delicious and nutritious!

  1176. I am such a fan of pesto and there are time I “crave” it. Recently, I had the bright idea to make it fresh and used my Vitamix…definitely not a good idea (smile). If i had a food processor, pesto would be first on my list followed by salsa and perhaps herbs and vegetables for a kale salad. Cuisnart do come home to me!!!

  1177. Jonna

    I LOVE your pesto recipe!!!!!!

  1178. Dana

    OMG – I am lusting after a food processor! I have been making hummus using a blender and/or a Magic Bullet. LOVE those machines, but lordy, lordy, I long for the day when I can make a decent hummus without swearing! :)

    I LOVE your recipes – thanks for your wonderful work!

  1179. Lenee

    Your recipes are amazing! I’m house-sitting for my Mom this week, and have been using her food processor and Vita-mix to make a number of them! I’ve made two power bar recipes, pesto, pumpkin soup, vanilla almond butter, lots of coleslaw and salads, and now I’m off to make your pumpkin custard :P I love them all! I would also love to have my very own food processor so I can continue to eat my way through this website ;) You’re a genius, and you’ve made my food restrictions seem like no big deal at all!

  1180. Summer

    Mmmmmm I’ve always wanted to try your cauliflower ‘rice’ dish, it looks so yummy! If I had a food processor, I think I’d make a lot more pesto, mashed potatoes, and salsa.

  1181. jacqueline schwarz

    My eyes just popped open at the thought of beingable to make gefilte fishwhich I have not tasted since I was diagnosed as gluten-allergic 6 years ago. Yum! I had intended to talk about latkes, but this is much more appealing. Thanks!

  1182. Heather

    I just said to my husband today that I need a food processor. And then I see your giveaway! I want to make your multi-“grain” crackers.

  1183. Damon

    Thanks for your website. I made your Kale Pesto last night everyone loved it.

  1184. Jonnie Williams

    I hone have bought two of your books and given one away as a gift. My daughter was diagnosed with celiac 3 years ago and until I found your book and almond flour she was miserable. I WOULD LOVE A FOOD PROCESSOR TO MAKE MANY OF THE DELICIOUS RECIPES IN YOUR GREAT BOOK!!The store bought GF bread is not so good.I would make bread and pesto.I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED A CUISINART FOOD PROCESSOR. Thanks, Elana

  1185. Sherri

    I have a smaller Cuisinart food processor that I use all the time. Just today I ground up blanched almonds to make my own almond flour. I had to do it in smaller batches because of the size. I also used it to pulse walnut pieces. I did all of this to make Elana’s GF Date Walnut Bars.

    I’ve used my food processor to make pumpkin bread and even cauliflower mashed “potatoes.” The one problem that I have run across is the amount of liquid one can put in the food processor without it leaking. I’ve had several messes I’ve had to clean up because I exceeded the limit.

    I would really love to win this larger Cuisinart food processor. I can only imagine the time it would save me from having to do my mixing in batches!

  1186. Ben

    Hi, I’d love a chance to win that bad boy. I have an old and probably endangered model that desperately needs to be replaced. Years and years or constant use, I’m hard pressed to pick what Id use a new Cuisinart food processor for first .. But it’s gotta be mayonnaise. Honestly never was crazy about the stuff until I made my own.. And without having to whisk anything, just pour down the tube and let it emulsify! After it’s done, I love to get creative and make for some wicked surprises in burgers, sandwiches, and macaroni/pasta salads!

  1187. I got rid of our food processor years ago b/c we never used it and hated cleaning it. I think we used it twice in 5 years. But now since we’ve moved to a vegan lifestyle and are doing more raw foods and things from scratch its the one appliance I wish we had. Thanks for offering!

  1188. C helsea

    I would make primal food for my cats if I had something like this! (<—-not a crazy cat lady)

  1189. Sarah A.

    favorite food processor meal is homemade GF pasta mixed in the food processor before slicing the noodles and fresh basil pesto with a twist of lemon…drooling just typing this :)

  1190. Karol

    If I had a food processor, I would love to make 2 things off the top of my head: pumpkin hummus and a butternut squash soup. My husband and I have been seriously wanting a food processor for a while now, but the good ones are so expensive, we’re holding off for a bit.

    great giveaway!

  1191. Alice Davis

    Gazpacho Soup is probably my favorite recipe made in a food processor. I like to use fresh tomatoes from my garden or a local farmer’s market. I also use fresh cucumbers, celery, bell peppers and onions, all from the same sources. Add olive oil, lemon juice, sea salt and a bit of Italian Herbs and you have the best chilled soup there is. So very good in the summertime!!!! Don’t cook it, just cover and chill!

  1192. Claire Stanley @ creativebalancehealth.com

    My Cuisinart is 27 years old and needs to be replaced! I love to make Spanish Romesco sauce in mine out of roasted peppers, almonds, olive oil and Sherry vinegar.

  1193. Julie Duncan

    Would love to try the multi-grain crackers. Thanks for the giveaway.

  1194. Jenny SC

    I tried everydaypaleo’s tomato soup and it was AWESOME, but needs to be pureed to get the texture right and my dinky 2 cup food processor just didn’t cut it :) This processor would rock the tomato soup!

  1195. Sara Thornton

    I love to use it to make my avocado corn chowder!

  1196. I use my food processor to make many of the pastes I use in Indian cooking. The last one I made was a fried onion paste that gave a depth to the fish curry I made. I fried ginger & garlic first in a combination of peanut and ghee and then added thinly sliced onion. All fried in the oil mix until golden brown. Drain. Add this to some yogurt and blend in the food processor until a smooth paste. This can be refrigerated or frozen. Recipe from 1000 Indian recipes by Meelam Batra.

    I use my food processor almost as often as I use the vita mix (almost – I make a green smoothie everyday). Those two with the stand mixer are my most essential kitchen tools.

  1197. Christy

    My favorite recipe is cauliflower soup with creamy cashews!

  1198. kate

    i make ground meat in a cuisinart. i add veggies, garlic, and spices to a few turkey cutlets with almond meal and roll them into balls, meatballs!

  1199. Anita

    I love the sweets but the cauliflower rice rules! I would be thrilled to win the Cuisinart food processor so I don’t have to hand-chop my Cauli Rice! :D

  1200. gg

    That Cuisinart looks great! I love making the jelly cupcake donuts in my food processor. I use honey instead of agave and they are delicious. I also use my food processor to make cauliflower kugel when I want to avoid potatoes. It is so much healthier!

  1201. Jessie

    Our food processor is always in use. I use mine for making all kinds of baby food.

  1202. Corinne

    I puree lots of pumpkin from our garden and freeze it for various pumpkin recipes. The Cuisinart would make the job so much easier!

  1203. Tanya

    I am just now learning to eat Paleo for crossfit! Learning where to buy all the ingredients and then off to preparation!! This would be a huge help!

  1204. Amber

    I first bought my small food processor to make baby food for my daughter. Now I use it to make Elana’s Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies, but I would love a bigger one to make big batches of hummus and quinoa burgers!

  1205. Sam

    I would love to try many of your recipes using a food processor. I don’t have a favorite because I don’t have one,(Ha!) but come across several recipes that do use a food processor. Your Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies and Betsy’s Multi “Grain” Crackers look delicious and would be a good place for me to start! :-)

  1206. sally rawlings

    I would love to have the food processor to make your carrot cake like muffins and to process veggies to make lacto fermented relish !! YUM

    Sally in Alaska

  1207. ange

    If I had a food processor, particularly the Cuisinart one that you are giving away, I would first make the gluten-free, vegan fig newtons. I used to really dig into fig (newtons, that is – as well as the fresh fruit) when I was a kid. I would love to have the ability to make them, eat them, and walk down memory lane. After making the fig newtons, I think I would go on to make crackers and raw applesauce.

    Thanks in advance.

  1208. joe

    I make an oat breakfast dish, almost like a quiche but healthier & w/tons more flavor!

  1209. Stephanie

    I would make pesto in one batch instead of several in the pathetic mini-processor we currently have! I would LOVE to try your banana carrot muffins!

  1210. Becky

    The chocolate espresso power bars sure look good.

  1211. Abigail

    Salsas and hummus. I want to make a lentil hummus, specifically.

  1212. In our house, I would use the food processor to make a variety of Mexican Salsas and Guatemalan Chirmols (similar to salsa) It would make things super quick, and I would appreciate a break from chopping onions since I tear up terribly :(

  1213. Tory Thompson

    My favorite recipe with a cusinart is pesto fresh from the garden, basil, walnuts, parmesano regiano, garlic and olive oil. Make big batches when basil is abundant in August and then freeze in muffin cups and remove when from cups, store in zip lock baggie, use all fall and winter.

  1214. Kim Hunter

    I love the homemade nut butters. That would be my first project.

  1215. pamela frager

    If I won a Cuisinart mixer (which I need!), I would make all of my gluten free pastry doughs in it (so easy to do). Then I’d use the dough to experiment with different gluten free, casein free quiches – one of my latest obsessions. To date, I’ve made a gfcf quiche lorraine and a gfcf spinach and mushroom quiche. Both were delicious, kid-friendly and perfect for the upcoming warmer months.

  1216. Gail Gardner

    I thoroughly enjoy your site. I find your recipes very good, a good alternative using almond flour and agave instead of the basic gluten free with rice flour and lots of sugar. I have not made your carrot Banana Muffins yet, but if I had a food processor this is the first recipe I would try. Next, I would try the Jelly Donut Cupcakes.
    I have made the your chocolate raspberry hamantaschen and thoroughly enjoyed them. They didn’t last too long and I was the only one eating them.

  1217. I have so many of your recipes bookmarked to try, but I simply cannot afford a food processor yet… this would be a miracle! I have my fingers crossed!!!!

  1218. David Neal

    awesome! i need to make use of all greens i get from my root veggies! would love to process them!

    david j

  1219. Angelina

    Mashed or riced cauliflower for sure! =)

  1220. Emily

    I would try your Lemon Almond Biscotti – looks delicious!

  1221. I have never had a real food processor. I did own the Magic Bullet, but it broke within a year. If I had a food processor, I would use it to make my own nut butters, and homemade pesto. I’m growing my first garden this year and I’m looking forward to lots of basil!

  1222. Tammy

    I need a food-p! I would use it all the time.

  1223. Ann Lyman

    I enjoy your blog immensely. I finally got the almond flour and your book and made a savory crust. Oh my goodness, it is so delicious. You are helping me get into more cooking! We just finished a kitchen renovation and I have lots of counter space. I waited to get a food processor till we had the space. I would love to win it!

    Thanks for all the work you are doing that inspires us.

  1224. ingrid

    ooooh this is so exciting!….i’ve been looking at these for a while.
    yay! and thanks

  1225. Nikki V

    If I had a food processor, I’d definitely try the mustard lime chicken recipe. It sounds fabulous!

  1226. Bridget

    So I have owned a Vita Mix for 14 years. Yep the same one. And I use it every single day. What a machine! I attempt most of Elana’s recipies with my Vita Mix, even though they call for a food processor. Alas, I do not own one, but I can’t imagine how much I would use it if I had one. I would make Carrot Banana Muffins, Double Chocolate Mocha Biscotti, Gluten Free Mulberry Granola, Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies, Fig Newtons, Mustard Lime Chicken, Salmon with Anchovy Olive Tapenade, Mashed Cauliflower (ok, at LEAST once a week – love it), Spinach Cake, Stuffed Mushrooms (a fav of my hubby), Betsy’s Multi “Grain” Crackers (haven’t even attempted because I don’t have a food processor), Chocolate Espresso Power Bars, Raw Apple Sauce (kids fav), Chocolate Hazelnut Spread (dreams of nutella), Creamy “Ricotta” Dip (yum), Sesame Dip, pumpkin bars, and sooo much more. What can I say? I believe my kitchen is only half complete!
    Thanks for all the great work you do Elana…
    Bridget in Denver

  1227. Stephanie

    I would make the hazelnut chocolate spread because I used to love eating nutella!

  1228. Karen Shaw

    My bean and rice veggie burgers are made in a snap with a food processor! In seconds everything is nicely chopped and it all holds together. My current food processor is over 20 years old and on it’s last leg.
    Good luck, everybody.

  1229. Lupe

    My favorite recipe to use the Cuisinart food processor is pie doughs or bread, it makes this task so easy! I use my food processor A LOT these days! I have a 8 month old baby boy and I make all of his food. The one thing I would love about the new food processor is being able to pour without having to remove the blade. When making my son’s pureed foods I can’t fill my food processor too full. I would love the new processor to help with making my son’s food!
    And yes, pesto in the food processor is the best!!
    If I had the new processor the first thing I would make is more pureed food for little T! He’s a big eater!

  1230. Thomas Booker

    My Vita-Mix, like you, is a great kitchen appliance. Use it for smoothies to soup to making dough. If I were to win the Cuisnart, I would start with the multi-grain crackers and the double chocolate walnut brownies.

  1231. chani

    strawberry sorbet, crumb cake and potato kugel – love food processors! i need a new one for passover!

  1232. Kristen @ mamabytes.com

    My absolute favorite thing to make with my current (dying) food processor is salsa-and I can make it chunky or restaraunt style. The other thing I make quite often is homemade laundry soap!!

  1233. I have the world’s tiniest food processor, so this one would make life a lot easier and save me a ton of time. I would use it to processes dates & nuts, to make up our favorite home made version of the Lara bar.

  1234. Tracy W

    My family loves the jelly donut recipe! In fact, I just bought everything to make them today.

  1235. Mildred A.

    Ooooh I covet this Cuisinart!

    I’m a student on a budget (which means zero money) but I’ve been trying to eat Paleo for a while. Alas there are some delicious recipes, like homemade Nutella, that are totally beyond my realm of the possible since they require a Cuisinart. For now I’m staying firmly away from my roommate’s horrible sugar laden spreads…


  1236. Kevin

    My favorite food processor recipe is definitely pesto. It’s so simple, but food doesn’t get much better than pesto. I’ll definitely have to try some of your recipes.

  1237. Francie @ ecomomoftwo.com

    I love to make black bean brownies in my Cuisinart. I discovered I could make my handed down spritz cookie recipe in it instead of by hand! (Though I can only make those for my kids now).

    My Cuisinart is an 11 cup and it is at least 15 years old! It is not always big enough, it has a crack in the base, but it still works. Each time I use it I talk nice to it.

  1238. Julia Ekpo

    If I had a food processor, I would make the jelly doughnut cupcakes. I miss doughnuts so much!

  1239. christa

    I would make a recipe from every category if I had a food processor!

  1240. Elizabeth Reid @ ereid.net/gallery

    My favorite recipe to make in a food processor is falafel.

  1241. amy

    I would love to have a food processor to make nut butters and homemade lara bar type bars. i look at all your recipes with envy since i can’t make them (yet!).

  1242. Terra Stead

    Well, I use my food processor multiple times a day, but the one thing that sticks out is when I use it each morning first thing to puree an apple which I use to sweeten my oatmeal. Living in a gluten free and corn free home provides endless opportunities to use a processor. It’s never far from reach!

  1243. Ashira Edelman

    I love your website and your recipes! I use my food processor to make amazing gluten free brownies, pesto, salads, guacamole, and many other of our family’s favorite recipes.

  1244. Rhea Parsons @ theveeword.blogspot.com

    I don’t have a food processor. I wish I did but I don’t so I do everything by hand. Potato and zucchini latkes, cake and dough mixes, everything. If I had a food processor, I would make cashew cream sauce and walnut pesto.

  1245. OOOOOH, salsa is my fave thing for the food processor! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  1246. Erica Berchtold

    Elana – Love your website! I regularly stop here to find GFCF recipes for me and my daughters.
    If I had a Cuisinart, I would make the Double Chocolate Biscotti…. BUT my children would hurt me if I made those before the Jelly Donut Cupcakes!
    Thanks for all of the great recipes!

  1247. Michele

    Cauliflower rice!

  1248. diane

    I don’t own a food processor, but if I did I would make potato pancakes! Thanks for all of your great recipes.

  1249. Naama

    My favorite recipe using a food processor is raw-brownie.

  1250. Maggie

    I would want to try to make my own homemade snack bars using fruit and nuts maybe even a little almond flour or coconut flour… with some a little BIT of chocolate, of course. sounds delicious already. :)

  1251. Amanda Johnson

    Oh chocolate Hazelnut spread would be first on my list, homemade Nutella, yum!

  1252. Janis S,

    I don’t have a favorite recipe using a food processor because I’ve never had one. If I had one I’d love to try making homemade gefilte fish. The kind that comes in a jar with all the jellied stuff is so unappetizing. I think if I made it at home, I’d like it. Would be nice to serve for Shabbat or Passover seder.

  1253. Brandi (Real Life Montessori) @ reallifemontessori.com

    Oh gosh, every time I make shortbread or pie crust I think of how much easier it would be with a food processor…

  1254. Diane Kintrea

    Wow! if I am so lucky to be selected for this prize, I would make my chunky roasted root vegetable spread. I toss peeled chunks of carrot, yam, onion, sweet potato, golden beets, and parsnips with olive oil, rosemary, black pepper and a pinch of sea salt, spread everything in a pan and roast til semi carmelized and tender. I would spin this to a finer yet still slightly chunkey texture in the processor and spread on rice crackers or brown rice toast… with just an extra drizzle of olive oil.
    We have had 29 days of rain in a row in Portland and this is THE snack right now. Wish me luck!
    I was diagnosed with an iron absorbtion issue 10 months ago that made me drop the gluten.
    Paleo diet rules!

  1255. natalie

    I don’t have a food processor, so I always barrow my mom’s to make nut butters. But I would love to try you sun butter ice cream!

  1256. Cynde Nozawa

    I love your website. I have learned to love kale with you! I never thought I l iked it before but now i eat it frequently. I have never had a food processor before, sounds really amazing!

  1257. danirose87

    Love making pesto in the food processor! So easy and always delicious!

  1258. Jessica Roth

    By far…Home made pesto white bean hummus!

  1259. Alesha

    If I won, I would use this food processor for the creamy “ricotta” dip. I love your recipes!

  1260. Holly O’Brien

    I would use it to make fresh chutneys, salsas and pesto!

  1261. alain

    hi elana! thanks for holding this awesome giveaway! without a doubt mashed cauliflower is one of my absolute favorite things to cook using the food processor. it is an amazingly versatile dish. sometimes i add in garlic and nutritional yeast for a more cheesy flavored dish, other times i add in chopped nuts, mint and raisins for a more greek inspired dish.

  1262. Karen

    Mmmm, gluten free mulberry granola sounds delish and that is what I would make!

  1263. Nathan T

    I make a cold zucchini soup. Using my food processor, I unite the ingredients into the best, most refreshing soup ever! The soup is a result of a family tradition during the Super Bowl called the “Bowl Party.” everyone brings a different soup and their own special bowls.

  1264. Sarah

    So far the mustard lime chicken is my favorite. I only have a mini processor so whatever I make has to be small. I would love to try the biscotti and the power bar recipes, but my mini processor is not big enough. Hopefully I will get to try them soon :) Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  1265. What an awesome giveaway! I would use it to make garlic hummus!

  1266. Bobby

    Salsa! Cilantro, chipotles, tomato, onion, cumin, lime juice, salt. Delicious

  1267. I use my food processor at least once a week! My favorite use is making homemade mayonnaise (I have found it nearly impossible to make without one), though a close second is using the shredding attachment for carrot cake or cauliflower rice.

  1268. Megan

    There are so many times I wish I had a food processor. Making Danish rodkal is definitely one of those times.

    I hoped my high powered blender would take the place of the processor but like you said, they have totally different functions.

    This would be an awesome addition to my kitchen.

    Looks like everyone would love a new cuisinart!

    I am absolutely obsessed with the power bars, especially the chocolate cranberry and chocolate espresso. They are so easy to make (in the cuisinart!) and so, so good!

    I have had my cuisinart since I was married 12 years ago.

  1270. Lisa Nielsen

    I have used a food processor before and had great luck with yummy pestos (like Sun Dried Tomato Pesto) and seed cheeses!
    It would be amazing to own one and experiment with all the amazing looking recipes listed above!

  1271. Isabella

    Definitely basil pesto. Though that is about all my itty bitty food pro can handle. I can’t imagine the wondrous things I can make with something bigger. :)

  1272. wendy

    I would be very greatful to have a food processor it would make soup making much easier for the coming winter. my favourite bean and veg soup

  1273. Kate

    This would be a delightful item to win–thanks for the chance!

  1274. If I had a food processor, I would make homemade hummus, pesto, flourless almond cake, etc…endless options!

  1275. Christy

    I would LOVE to make my own humus and try an olive/rosemary humus!!! Thanks for offering a contest! I LOVE your blog!! =)

  1276. Alejandra symons

    I love making pesto using the food processor also I like to use it when making cheesecake !

  1277. Sara

    My little food processor has seen better days. It has survived lots of making raw candies & cookies, nut spreads, hummous & grated veggies. I have been envisioning a nice new one for a while now. Thanks for the giveaway!

  1278. Eileen

    All these recipes look so good! I would make several of the breakfast ones, namely the muffins. And the desserts, like the brownies look irresistible!

  1279. Jody Engstrom

    If I won this amazing machine, I would use it to make turkey meatballs, nut based pie crusts, baby food purees for my little girl, etc, etc, etc!!!

  1280. I’d like making mashed cauliflower. Mmmmm!

  1281. M. Sieu

    Hi Elana! My daughter, Lily, told me about your site and how much she loves your recipes that use almond and coconut flour. We both have friends who are diabetic, Jewish, gluten-intolerant and any combination thereof…. so you website is VERY helpful! I’ll celebrate my 76th birthday in May, and I’ve always been concerned about the amount of sugar and fat in cooking and baking. Thank you again for so many good ideas!

  1282. all types of pesto. Imagine 12 cups of pesto! Boy, how much basil would one have to start with?

  1283. Jessica

    Before I accidentally dropped my food processor on the floor and busted it, I loved it for making nut butters. Thanks for the giveaway!

  1284. Mary

    My Cuisinart is older than yours and getting rather worn! What I have used it for the most was making watermelon sherbet. (Which I didn’t make at all last summer!)

    A new one would make all the difference.
    Thanks for your wonderful recipes.

  1285. Dara Eden

    I like to make dark leafy green pestos with organic basil, parsley, spinach, arugula, raw pine nuts, parmesan, lemon zest and “evoo”.

  1286. Susan

    I would make bread doughs of every kind.

  1287. HI Elena!
    Mom beat me to posting a comment! ARGH! ;-)
    Yes, mom was always concerned about sugar and fat. Thank goodness for Agave Nectar! I’ve really enjoyed your recipes. Many of my friends are watching their blood sugar these days. Your recipes give me a chance to spoil them a little and not feel guilty.

    And of course… I’d LOVE to win the Cuisinart, but not as much as mom.
    All the best,

  1288. Carey Huyser

    Your power bars are my favorite thing to make in the food processor. I have to ration them in my house to make sure I get left with some!

  1289. Alison

    I am DYING for a proper food processor! I would make mashed cauliflower, and give your gluten free almond power bars a shot! Thanks for the giveaway, and keep on cooking :)

  1290. Diane M

    Shredded cabbage for elana’s delicious Asian slaw!

  1291. Kathy Foulk

    My daughter and grandsons are GF. We try different recipes all of the time. A food processor would be great. Fig bars sound very good. THank you!

  1292. Allie (Live Laugh Eat) @ livelaugheat.com

    Oh man! I’ve been admiring food processors for months now. Our 80 year old FP no longer works and is missing parts. The first thing I would make is a combination nut butter—almonds, pecans, walnuts and hazelnuts.

  1293. Karalie V.

    I don’t have a food processor, and I would use one all the time! I made an awesome asian noodle salad and it took me over an hour just to chop all the veggies!! Oh what a joy it would be to have dinner on the table in half the time. :o)

  1294. scott buss

    I would love to try making your Salmon with Anchovy Olive Tapenade. It sounds delicious. Hope I win. Thanks.

  1295. Joan Viers

    Thank you for the givaway, I hope I win. Bye

  1296. Christina

    I love to make fresh, organic, coleslaw (and eat it!) and a good processor would be perfect for this!

  1297. Britt

    I don’t have a food processor. In my dream world I make all of the gf recipes that so often call for one – cakes, fruit bars, homemade almond butter. And smooth marinara sauce! Chunky is great, but a change of pace would be amazing!

  1298. Kirsten Yoder @ kiryoder.com

    Hi, Elana! I would make hummus more often if I had a food processor that was more powerful than the one I have now, as well as homemade salad dressings and bean dips. I’d also like to make more paleo soups such as cauliflower and broccoli soups that are gluten free.

  1299. Linda Wilson

    I bet thise is a dandy food processor….I would make the carrot banana muffins to start it’s career in my gluten free kitchen!

  1300. AnnaLyon

    I’d make every kind of dip and condiments possible, including the sesame one!

  1301. Kiran @ KiranTarun.com @ kirantarun.com/food

    I’ve been wanting a food processor for long now. Would love to limit the amount of chopping I do :)

  1302. susan

    cauliflower rice! love your cauliflower rice recipe. tasty and a great way to get my family to eat cauliflower!

  1303. I’ve never had or used one before (and I’m almost 50) but I would love to try the mashed cauliflower first!

  1304. WOW!!! This is amazing!! My favorite recipe is a chicken burger made with cashew-macadamia flour, cilantro, lemon… It’s from one of our SCD cookbooks. I also love making chocolate pudding out of avocado, cocoa and maple syrup. It’s SOOOOO good!!

  1305. Tracy

    I would make the fig newtons!! My favorite cookie I haven’t had since going gluten free.

  1306. Kim Green

    My favorite recipe that I use my food processor for is a fabulous pumpkin cheesecake with gingersnap/pecan crust. Yum-O!!!

  1307. My favorite food processor recipe is sun-dried tomato hummus. I also use the food processor to make gluten free breadcrumbs all the time :)

  1308. Kelly Webster

    I’d probably use it to make some great calliflour mashed potatos.

  1309. Mary

    I love to use the food processor to make your orange-almond cake. Scrumptious!

  1310. Carrie nichols

    Cilantro almond pesto. Yum!!

  1311. Jessy

    I think a food processor can be very useful for different spreads and nut butters. If I had this, I would make your homemade ”Nutella”! :D

  1312. Carol

    I would love to grind my own almonds for flour and “breading” if I had the Cusinart food processor!

  1313. Jane

    pesto pesto pesto pesto pesto!!!! With toasted walnuts, or pistachios, or cilantro pesto with toasted pepitas….pesto, hands down.

    Or hummus. Or cannelini bean spread with olive oil, fresh sage and garlic. Or sometimes even marmalade!!! Okay. Pesto and marmalade are my most favourite uses!!! (just not at the same time :-D).

    Or just for grinding nuts- that’s what I love them for the best. I like the Honeyville Farms almond flour too, but a lot of times I like the coarser grind of the homemade almond meal, depending on recipe…

  1314. Linda

    I love my Vita-mix but I’ve never owned a food processor. I’d love to have one since it sounds like they make food prep so much quicker and easier. Your recipe for Double Chocolate Walnut Gluten Free Brownies looks wonderful and I’d love to give it a try if I were to win.

  1315. I have a lot of favorites and we are trying to go raw, but if I had to pick one recipe it is the pistachio basil pesto. Sooooo yummy!

  1316. Jaan

    Ever since I found your website I have been subsuting Almond flour for alot of recipes. Love the results, even though my grinder doesn’t get the Almond flour ground perfectly. I could use a proper food processor to not only make Almond flour but to do many more things that I can’t do now. Thanks for the chance to win the Cusinart Food Processor. And thank you for all the great reciepes.

  1317. Karen

    Hard to choose just one but your biscotti I just made and it is wonderful! Pesto, so many things. I will be making would benefit from a good food processor…. Love your cookbook and can’t wait for the new one.

  1318. JoAnne U

    I would love a food processor! I love to make hummus, shred cabbage for a slaw, and prep veggies!

  1319. Mary Short

    Since my food processor sounds like it is on its last leg–literally! I would love a new one so I can continue to make my own power bars–thanks for the recipes for these, they are such a staple in my home.

  1320. Jenna

    I would make many! Perhaps I would make your awesome looking Chocolate Espresso Power Bars first. And I would certainly make lots and lots of hummus and pesto.

  1321. Julie

    A food processor would be amazing…I wouldn’t have to borrow anymore!! I love to make hummus, pesto’s, shred carrots (for carrot cake), prep veggies, and the list goes on. Great recipes on your website!


    Hi, I found your website abought a month ago. I am so excited to finally have someone to help me learn to cook healthy. I am 68 years young. If i get a good food processor, i will be able to try your wonderful recepies. I would start with Double Chocolate Mocha Biscotti. Thank you for sharing yourself, Jeannette

  1323. Deanne

    I would try the Double Chcolate Walnut Brownies. Yum!

  1324. Jennifer Nielsen

    Would love this! Salsa is a favorite of mine. Mango salsa to be exact! Good luck everyone!

  1325. John

    I would love to make some Chinese fish balls using the food processor! Also, some red bean paste or walnut paste for fillings in buns. I am on an Asian food kick these days! Oh, and of course the recipes that you shared on your blog!

  1326. Beth

    I would LOVE this! I have had a cuisinart for awhile – and use it almost daily. My favorite is grinding nuts to make nutbutters :) Pick me, pick me :)

  1327. Brenda-Lee Olson @ GFCFRecipes

    Since I haven’t had a food processor for years, it would be hard to pick a favourite recipe. I see so many delightful ones on the cooking shows, but when one is raising four challenged children, countertop appliances are NOT the first order of business. It would be great to have one now that my children are mostly grown (only 2 left), so we can experiment again.

  1328. GK

    My favorite things to make with my food processor are coconut butter and veggie burgers. Oh, and ground almonds and pistachios for a cake recipe. If I won this I would give it to my sister, so she can take it with her when she moves!

  1329. Kathryn Rile @ pogodesign.com

    I have so many recipes that I use a blender or food processor for. My current food process has a frustratingly tiny capacity, so this upgrade would be gratefully welcome. We always make our own mayonaise and aeoli– a favorite for dipping steamed artichokes. I also make a green, green soup lovingly called “swamp monster soup” by my children: steamed, pureed kale, spinach, parsley, green onions with soup stock and brewers yeast. It is fresh, fast and goes down easily.

  1330. Jami

    I am expecting my first child and recently found out I have gestational diabetes. When I found your website it was a god sent, it gave me many ideas for how to replace refined sugar and white flour and create foods that do not bring up my blood sugar. I am able to regulate my condition without medication, and so far the baby shows no signs of being affected by it. I even got to see his little smile on the ultrasound the other day :) I would love to have a food processor when the baby starts eating solids so that I can make my own baby food and keep my family on the right track. Plus, my husband really wants to try the power bars!

  1331. Veronica Parnitski

    I would make chocolate hazelnut spread – one of my favorite combos.

  1332. Lynn Krukowski @ fireagateartstudio.com

    Oh Elana,
    What to make?
    Any of your Double Chocolate recipes – DC Orange Torte, DC Mocha Biscotti, DC Walnut Gluten Free Brownies….
    We just came back from a trip to Tucson and a camping trip rock-hounding in the mountains a few hours outside of Tucson and need to tell you the Gluten Free Date Walnut Bars traveled really well (took them in their pan from Vancouver)(we drove down) and they lasted over two weeks as a treat. Friends let me cook up a batch of the Carrot Cake Cupcakes (took ingredients and my own pan from home)as long as they got half! So the cupcakes became breakfast, lunch and dinner for quite a few days. If kept cool they lasted a week. Thankyou so much for helping me get healthy – no swollen joints, stomach aches or migraines for whole trip. Came home to a broken oven so a wee bit anxious for the electrician to visit! Thanks again for a whole new way to cook. So much more energy! Appreciate your wisdom. Lynn

  1333. Nico Staples

    I make these amazing Almond Plower Bars, they are so much better when using the food processor to mix and pulverizing everything.

  1334. Ali Nyman

    My favorite recipe using a food processor is cauliflower rice. My family loves it and it is the only way to get my 1 yr. old to eat cauliflower. We also love to make homemade roasted red pepper hummus in a food processor.

  1335. I would love to try the fig newtons because I love the store bought kinds and homemade could only be better!

  1336. Nichole

    I dont have a food processor, but if I can one I would make some creamy soups and pasta sauces with it! It would also be great to chop up chocolate chunks to make these gluten-free oreo cream chocolate cupcakes I made the other day!

  1337. Linda Hoffmann

    The dish I make all the time is cauliflower “mashed potatoes” with cooked cauliflower, cream cheese and butter. Everyone loves it! Love your blog and refer to your recipes often!

  1338. Caireen

    I love the food processor for making pie crust.

  1339. I would love to make more pesto. The farmers market just opened up and they already have cilantro. I have a great vegan, almond, cilantro pesto recipe.

    Also…I love your power bar recipe. Hmmm….Maybe I will have to make a batch!

  1340. Tina Chalfant

    I would use it to make pistachio pesto! Yummmmm!

  1341. Karey Smisek-Bachman

    Just today I used my food processer to make a cheesecake for my son’s birthday! It was one of those recipes where you bake the cake then turn the oven off and let it sit for 2 hours then cool completely then chill overnight! I can’t wait to try it!!!!! It looks amazing!!!!!

  1342. Amanda

    Oh wow, look at all these comments!

    With Hubby’s birthday on the way, I have been eying those jelly doughnut cupcakes. Mmmmm… delicious!

  1343. The most recent thing I’ve made with my (26 yr old) food processor was a very delicious Asparagus soup that I actually made twice. I would love to replace “The Beast” with a sleek, new racing model so I can up my game. ;)

  1344. Michael

    I am a fiend for Nutella, and I haven’t had any since going low carb. I would definitely go bonkers for the Chocolate Hazelnut Spread. Plus, it would be an awesome birthday present, as I turn 21 Tomorrow!!!

  1345. I would make the easy, and flourless, orange flavored garbanzo bean cake from Mexico that I included in my eBook, Gluten Free Cakes From Around The World.

    Everything goes in the food processor, then in the pan, and voila, a wonderful, Paleo cake. (I use palm sugar in it)…Yum!!! It’s very moist and keeps well.

  1346. Melissa Burford @ melissaburford.typepad.com

    I have an old hand-me-down food processor and I use it all the time. I love making different pestos in it and a million other things. Thanks for the chance to win!

  1347. Madeleine

    Hummus, hummus, hummus.

  1348. Stephanie

    If I won this food processor, I would try a recipe for dessert hummus :) I’m dying to try it.

  1349. Natasha – Luscious Cakes

    My best selling cake – Raw Chocolate Avocado Pie is what I use my food processor for the most.

    The Lush avocado, cacao and orange create an extremely delicious mix and keeps people coming back for more.

  1350. christina @ wyvernrunning.com

    I’d love to make chocolate mousse in the cusinart!

  1351. Misty

    My favorite thing to make is hummus! I got my own Cuisinart similar to this one (but not as nice!) for Christmas a few years ago. I would actually give this away to someone with no food processor if I happened to win (really!). :) I love being able to pay it forward! Thanks to you for this awesome giveaway. I look forward to trying out some of your recipes that I have been drooling over…I just got my first 2 lbs of almond flour, yay!

  1352. Enid Lemley

    Favorite things to make in food processor: shredding potatoes for hash-browns, making hummus. Thank you for the offer.

  1353. Kristine @ yegyoga.tumblr.com

    Elana, your Almond Butter Brownies/Blondies are AMAZING without a food processor and would be made even easier with one! I have been holding out on buying one and as a raw food enthusiast it would be so useful for so many delicious things! (aka the almond butter brownie dough with a flax egg instead of a real one and raw almond butter :) )

  1354. I use my food processer quite a bit! I use it to grind my own almond flour, make nut butters, grate veggis and make cakes! It is a must in my kitchen! Thanks Elana, love your site. :)

  1355. I LOVE making pesto….my current processor does’t do great job with it… i adore your spinach cake recipe…..and a cuisinart would make it so much easier. Right now i don’t use the processor for any of your desserts… but would love to try it. Thank you for your ongoing wise, warm website and the love you put into it. I also have MS and have appreciated the way you have helped educate people about the disease.

    Thank you!

  1356. Hanri S @ hanriyoga.co.uk

    If I had the food processor, I would love to make the chocolate espresso power bars – they seem just thing to help with my sweet cravings… rich enough to satisfy a snack urge, with protein to keep me full, and guilt-free because of all the goodness in it.

  1357. Susan M.

    My new favorite recipe to make with a food processor is a new recipe I came up with when experimenting in the kitchen last week, which was a Thai-inspired slaw (gluten-free, dairy free, and peanut-free) that I served with another new recipe – Thai red curry chicken tenders (also peanut, gluten, and legume-free). My brother, who does bnot eat healthy food much at all, LOVED both recipes and devoured them. I’d love to have a new food processor since mine is getting old and make this recipe more often. I’d even love to try making my own almond butter to use in the slaw recipe, even though I love the brand of raw, chunky unsalted almond butter from Trader Joe’s that I used in the recipe.

  1358. Miriam

    I would use it for bread doughs, making veggie slicing easier, pesto, grating cheese and veggies…

  1359. Tuuli

    We never had a food processor when I was growing up and I still only manage with a handheld blender, so the list of things to make, for the first time, is long…I’d start with dried fruit & nut bars, I think.

  1360. Mary M

    I’ve made your Double Choc Walnut Brownies using the vitamix but it would be fun to try to make it in a food processor like the recipe intended. :)

  1361. Thank you for offering! I’d love to win a Cuisinart :)
    If I do, I’ll start with the Salmon with Anchovy Olive Tapenade and work through your other great gluten-free recipes. I wore out my old Cuisinart, making all kinds of things–chopped salads, tapanades, sauces, hummus, soups, etc. I miss it!

  1362. Beverly Oommen

    If I had the Cuisinart, I would make a wonderfully delicious Cincinnati-style chili spaghetti using fresh turkey breast instead of beef, gluten free spaghetti and top it off with shredded cheddar cheese. It is made with a variety of spices, including cinnamon! I have tasted your Fig Newtons that my girlfriend made – they are so much better than anything I have ever tasted. Thank you so much!!

  1363. amy schactman

    I have a mini which I use all the time-what a dream to have a big one which handles more and helps w/ all gluten free recipes

  1364. amy schactman

    What a dream to make summer gluten free recipes a breeeze w/ your gift of this Cuisinart

  1365. beckyS

    Pesto, pesto, pesto! I make mine using my really old processor that I have had since my kids were young. (my kids are in their 30’s!) The Cuisinart? Great reputation for long lasting products, you can’t go wrong there!

  1366. Erin

    If I had a food processor I’d most look forward to trying it out with gluten free pie crusts and pizza doughs. Thank you for the chance to win!

  1367. Denise

    My favorite recipe to make in the Cuisinart is GF, raw, flax-seed crackers. It’s a lengthy process to grind the flax seeds. Then, shred lots of fresh veggies. Then, the Cuisinart perfectly blends the ground flax seed meal with the veggies into a batter which I spread out and dehydrate. It makes a yummy “wrap” to eat alone, with a spread, or as a sandwich.

  1368. I’d make mashed cauliflower, my favorite dish to make in place of mashed potatoes. The food processor makes it so quick and easy to throw together. I was spoiled in being able to use someone else’s food processor for a while, but now I am without and thus without my favorite side dish. :(

  1369. Juli

    Almond butter!

  1370. Bev

    Hummus! I love making hummus with my small food processor but would love a bigger one.

  1371. Laura

    Kabocha squash soup!

  1372. Lourdes @ lavidapaleo.com

    I like making chimichuri sauce!

  1373. Ashley @ sporkinhand.com

    I love to make mock mashed potatoes using cauliflower in my food processor. I only have a mini one and thus need to make small batches at a time:(

    p.s. I LOVE your blog!

  1374. I would make mayonnaise. I hear it’s a breeze in a Cuisinart and I just can’t get the hang of it by hand.

  1375. eva adler

    if i had a cuisinart food processor, i would definitely make the chocolate hazelnut spread! i would love to win a cuisinart for my daughter who is in college and recently diagnosed with dairy and wheat allergies and now has to cook her own meals. this chocolate spread would be a treat for her!

  1376. Ashley

    I’ve never had a food processor but have always wanted one. The first thing I would make is hummus. I love the stuff and it is a pain to make in a blender. I hope it’s easier in a food processor.

  1377. Jessica

    I would make lots and lots of cookies! : )

  1378. Louisa

    Oh, delicious barbecue tofu is the best thing I have ever used my food processor for.

    Now I want some. Oh, deliciousness!

  1379. Lung Chi Chen

    I like betsys-multi-grain-crackers.

  1380. I could make pesto a lot easier with a food processor like that. Right now, I’m having to process it in very small batches. All that I have is a mini food processor. What a great giveaway! Thanks!

  1381. Gerri Carpenter

    I have never owned a food processor, but want to make pesto and make chopping veggies easier. Thanks so much!!!

  1382. Kristin Leonard

    I Love your website! Kristin

  1383. Debbie Pettigrew

    I would love to have one of these….the first thing I would make would be biscottes..then hummus..then muffins…mmmmmmmmm…so many possibilities!

  1384. Elizabeth Jankowski

    I have always wanted a food processor. I usually improvise when your recipes call for the use of one. I dream of winning one to make my cooking life easier and more creative. Great idea!

    Liz Jankowski

  1385. Deb

    I really like your Double Chocolate Brownies Recipe and have made them a few times, but it would be much easier in a Cuisinart Blender. Homemade Nutella sounds like a good one to try too.

  1386. Stevie Willett-Shaw

    Uhmmm, I love to make tapenades in my food processor, with olives, red peppers and lots of garlic and primo olive oil…nothing much better!



    When I get my Cuisinart food processor, I will finally be able to make my own protein bars and all my nut butters which now, I am spending way too much money on.

  1388. c d parker

    My favorite food processor recipe is the gluten free brownie recipe made with coconut flour. Absolutely delish!!

  1389. Jenn in FL

    My food processor died several years ago, and I haven’t replaced it since. I have been looking to get a new one this year as I have missed it sooo.

    I made homemade mayonnaise and cheesecakes in it back in the day. Now, I will be making all kinds of gluten free sauces and homemade larabars (the blender just does not work).

  1390. Sara Miccione

    My favourite recipe is genovese pesto…is no traditional make it with food processor but I like it very much

  1391. Kathleen Murphy

    If I had a food processor, I think that making the Vegan Raw Cheezcakes would be a lot easier than fighting with a blender! And I LOVE those so much!

  1392. Lorraine Stockwell

    I would make lots of things! Today, it would be pesto, tomorrow, hummus….I appreciate seeing all the food processor ideas from other readers. Thank you for this great idea, Elana!

  1393. CJ

    I would love to have a new food processor. One of my favorite recipes is a flourless chocolate cake that’s made with almonds and hazelnuts. I toss all of it in the processor and let the magic begin :-)

  1394. Sarah @ Celiac in the City @ celiaccity.com

    Pesto or salsa!

  1395. Rachel

    I use a food processor most often to make snack bars.

    Dates (buy the ones w/ the pits because they have more moisture)
    Almonds (or walnuts)
    a pinch of salt (this really makes the difference)

    Sometimes I add orange peel and cocoa or lemon peel and mix in some dried blueberries (don’t put the blueberries in the processor) Yum!

  1396. Alyssa C.

    I love using my food processor for homemade nut butters!

  1397. meg

    Huuuuge batches of pesto and salsa with the spoils of our garden are my favorite things to make w/ my very old food processor (it’s actually 30 years old, older than me, was a wedding gift to my parents, who gave it to me when they got a newer model).

  1398. Amanda

    I love pesto, especially in the summer time when you’re grilling. But, if I had this machine, I’d try the jelly donut cupcakes.

  1399. faith

    hummus hummus hummus! a million different kinds! well… not quite a millino.. but close enough ;)

  1400. Diana McKenzie

    I would make my favorite recipes….first, cilantro pesto ….then hummus….applesauce, shredded carrots (for pineapple salad), raw pie crusts made with nuts, shred cabbage for slaw.

  1401. Linda

    My favorite thing to make with a food processor is smoothies! They are the best.

  1402. Carla

    I have started making my own brown sugar. Since I’m getting older and don’t have the strength I used to have, a food processor would be great
    to use for making larger batches of brown sugar.

  1403. Each month I love to make what I call “period relief bars.” They’re basically chocolate raw bars. I throw in whatever nuts I have, dark cocoa powder, dates, and coconut oil. Pulse together, press into a dish, refrigerate, and cut into bars. Yumm!

  1404. Mary

    My favorite recipe is your chocolate espresso power bars! Yum!

  1405. Karen

    I love making fresh hummus!!

  1406. Terry

    Chocolate hazelnut spread

  1407. Annie D.

    I have a Cuisinart mini-processor that I use for whipping up guacamole and baby food (when I’m too lazy to get out my Beaba babyfood maker). I could definitely use a larger size food processor!
    Thanks, Elana!

  1408. I make something similar to your chocolate espresso power bars (minus the espresso for my kids!) I would love to try out that quisinart!

  1409. Holly Owens

    Food Processors are the best invention ever!

  1410. Tiffany

    I would love to make some homemade hummus or almond butter!!!! Yum!!!! :)

  1411. Jamie Ray

    OH….I would LOVE to win this!!! I currently have a little 2-cup processor that is , in my mind, useless!! My Hubby says it’s just fine…mind you, he doesn’t cook anything!!! My kids are GFCFEFSF and I would LOVE to be able to make my own nut butters!!! Thanks for this offer. Jamie

  1412. Jen Schultz

    It used to be cheese balls, but since I discovered my dairy allergy, I’m going to have to go with garlic scape pesto in the spring!

  1413. Mary Claire

    I love, love, love your Gluten Free Almond Power Bars. And I love how easy they are to make with the food processor. Thank you for the chance to win!

  1414. Ann from Texas

    I mix the base for tortilla soup in my cuisenart: onions, garlic, chipotle peppers and cilantro. I grind it up finely, then brown it in a little hot oil. I have had my cuisenart for about 20 years, but it is older than that! I bought it from an estate sale from a woman who had kept it in pristine condition.

  1415. My favorite food processor recipe is pesto. It’s so easy to make something that tastes fantastic with just a few ingredients and a Cuisinart. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  1416. I would love love love to have this for SO many things, but especially for my dad’s version of gazpacho! It is nothing but veggie goodness.

  1417. Elin Anderwald

    My favorite Cuisinart recipe would be Gazpacho, which I used to make at the drop of a hat until the belt broke! It is so yummy,especially with the addition of lime juice and gets even better in the fridge for the next day. After that I would say Pesto from my garden herbs and GF stuffing for roast chicken. Having a Cuisinart would be fabulous.

  1418. Loralie GF mom of 3 GF kids

    I would just love to have a processor for tortilas, pie crust, pesto and so much more. How can I choose just one? Well if I had to tortilas with a beautiful cilantro strawberry salsa – yummm!

  1419. PESTO, baby! Pesto!!!!!

  1420. Janet LaRue

    I would love to try and make some of the recipes that call for finely crushed nut flours as I think it would get the right consistency needed for the recipes! I don’t know if you make your own flours (almond), or buy them for your recipes but I would love to try and make my own!

  1421. Mona Chamberland

    This is my first time on this site.I’m excited. 2 years ago a new GI doctor found the fungal problem that was causing my stomach issues. It has been a challenge in finding yummy recipes. I am looking forward to trying out the crackers plus more. Thank you for sharing your kitchen treasures with us

  1422. April M. Benson

    My favorite thing to make in my food processor is chocolate chip cookies, of course; simple but lifelong joy in every bite!

  1423. joanne smoyer

    I am so happy to have found your web site. i am know to gluten free eating & feel so much better eating this way. My grandson also loves your recipes.Using a cusinart will make cooking easier for all.

  1424. Holy Gluten-Free Macaroni! This would be an AMAZING addition to our kitchen! I think our little food processor is on his last leg :(
    I would love to be able to blitz some rice to make my own rice flour (much cheaper than purchasing it pre-ground). We also make homemade peanut butter weekly!

  1425. This is a fantastic giveaway!

    My favorite recipe that I make nearly every day is to process cauliflower until it resembles couscous and the stir fry it with turkey and spices. Delish!

  1426. Sarah

    Favorite: Cinnamon apple cake

    Pick me!

  1427. amy a.

    i love making brownies with mine!!

  1428. Melodie Williams

    I have just been introduced to a food processor about a month ago! You are probably asking what planet I live on! I am from the south and have always cooked with all old school southern style tools and methods. Two friends and I attended a raw food chef certification in Michigan and now I HAVE to have a food processor to prepare foods the way they did it. I also am looking for a VitaMix. It is amazing what these two tools can do and how easy it makes preparing foods a more natural and healthy way. Here’s to health in the kitchen!!

  1429. Cynthia

    The chocolate hazelnut spread is great but now I have seen the fig newton recipe and would love to try that! I haven’t had one in years!

  1430. Jan Dittloff

    I am just learning about gluten free because I have a new daughter-in-law that has to have this diet. I think a cuisinart would help with a lot of recipes.

  1431. Gill Higgs

    It is very hard to source gluten free goodies in Ireland Elana. The Cuisinart Food Processor would enable me to make your beautiful recipes:)

  1432. Ilana

    I love dairy free pesto!!

  1433. Christine

    The 9-cup version of this food processor is currently on my wedding registry. I have dreams of homemade pesto, salsa, nut butters, but most of all HUMMUS!

  1434. Debbie Betsinger

    Thanks, Elana! Your cookbook has made gluten-free cooking easy and delicious for me. I haven’t found a thing in there that my family doesn’t like!

  1435. claudia rose

    I would make baked falafel balls using soaked dried chickpeas that are ground with parsley and spices. Food processor is definitely a must! thanks for your inventive site!

  1436. Kristy Tillman @ TheDaisyCo.com

    I would LOVE to have this! I have a used food processor someone recently gave me and it has a crack in the bowl and it’s getting worse.
    I LOVE making fresh almond butter. SOO yummy! I also make ‘bread’ by using your cracker recipe (loosely) and adding more water. We can’t have eggs or many other things and my son LOVES it!
    We make everything from scratch because of all our allergies and this sure would make our life easier! I’m ALWAYS in the kitchen!

  1437. Chris Dunkel

    Just bought my second cuisinart and love it. However have two children getting married before the end of the year. Would be a great gift. It is great for shredding cheese and slicing potatoes for scalloped potatoes. Makes quick work of pesto and hummus.

  1438. Denise


  1439. I make salsa regularly with my 12 year old food processor. I often end up with tomato all over the counter because it leaks!

  1440. Jordan

    I love using my wee little food processor to make GF cracker crumbs to make my faux-fried chicken.

  1441. Rachel Boulier

    Our large family would love to win this fantastic giveaway!!! We are Gluten-free, dairy-free and some of us are even Vegan. There would be a multitude of things we could make easier such as hummus, pesto or just chopping up some great veggies to add to our soups and such. :)

    Thank you!

  1442. My favorite food processor recipe is your double chocolate walnut brownies, YUM!

  1443. Abbe

    I love making hummus and bean dips in the food processor!

  1444. Margaux

    Granola! (and fig newtons)

  1445. Joyce

    Elana, what a great giveaway! I love to make cauliflower rice, but that is just one of my favorites. With a food processor the possibilities are endless.

  1446. Nicole Anderson

    I am on a quest to make the ultimate shortbread crust for lemon bars. I think that is what I would make and make and make until I got it just right.

  1447. stacie

    I would love to have a food processor and I would make some yummy pesto! Or maybe salsa. Sounds like a great way to use fresh tomatoes from my garden.

  1448. Susan Thatcher

    I would use the food processor to make fresh salsa.

  1449. i would make the applesauce!

  1450. jessica

    Family tradition requires our sugar cookie dough to be made in the food processor. Love it. Only takes 6-7 pulses and our dough is ready to go. Such little mixing ensures the dough stays light.

  1451. Allison

    I use my processor to make vegetable purees to be used in sneaky ways! I most recently pureed spinach and put it in some delicious GF blueberry bars. My friends had no inkling they were getting a veggie serving in their dessert!

  1452. Nic

    Your cracker recipe. I have been searching for a great gluten free cracker and yours looks delicious!

  1453. Jerri-Lynn D @ rdegayner@new.rr.com

    Wow what a fantastic giveaway! Ive been wanting a food processor for some time now. I would like to try sooo many recipes like the double chocolate brownies. Happy spring!

  1454. Eli

    I would try to not let my wife steal it away from me but I would use it to make some spice rubs for grilling.

  1455. Julia

    I have been gluten free and dairy free for over a year now and feel like I am starting to get confident in trying new recipes that can expand my diet. I was just reading about cashew cream and would love to try that in the food processor!

  1456. Shannon Sims

    I would love to have a high powered food processor to try my hand at making homemade nut butters. The ones in the health food stores are so expensive. I would also like to try salsa when I start getting veggies in the garden this year. Thanks for the great website!!

  1457. E & N

    We would make some babyfood for the new little one we have coming in July. It would be great to make all the baby’s food and this machine would HELP!!

  1458. Melissa

    Pesto is great in the cuisinart – perfect way to use up all the herbs and nuts in the house!

  1459. Vicki Duemler

    I love making Chimichurri in my food processor. It is great for so many meats. I have always wanted a Cuisinart since I went to a cooking class and watched the instructor create so many different things!

  1460. Amanda

    One of our favorite recipes to make using the processor is a Moroccan chicken dish, YUMM!!

  1461. Jane Reinholz

    Creamy Ricotta Dip!!
    A favorite since I saw it on your website a few months ago. Our family is a blend of Gluten Free, Dairy free, and allergy free people so preparing food is always best if all allergens are avoided. Otherwise the buffet would require three versions of each dish! Creamy Ricotta. prepared in my daughters cuisinart is a favorite dip. It’s a fresher tasting hummus dip and we serve it with vegies and Elana’s herb crackers. Delicious!!

  1462. Susan

    Newly diagnosed gluten intollerant, and struggling with the transition. A food processor could open up a world of possibilities.

  1463. Sharlene

    I would love to win a Cuisinart food processor and I would make nut butters with it. What a great give away.

  1464. Lauren R

    If I won this food processor, I would make your savory guacamole!! So delicious!

  1465. Eileen Riccio @ Elana'sPantry

    I would make Betsy’s Multiple “Grain” Crackers. I’m always looking for a new ‘crunchy’ snack. I made the coconut cupcakes for a party and they were a big hit, even with no frosting!

  1466. Salsa! I chop it all up by hand now and, while tasty, would love to get smaller, more uniform chunks.

  1467. A new food processor! That would be so great!! :)

  1468. Liz

    I would love to be the proud owner of a Cuisinart food processor! I’m a newbie at gluten free foods so if I was to win then I would try all of your delicious recipes :) They all sound absolutely wonderful!

  1469. Madeleine

    Every summer, I grow pots and pots of basil. It’s so hard to resist eating the leaves right off the plants, but the wait is worth it — fresh, homemade basil pesto is the most delicious thing in the world!

    A food processor is also great for making various GF flours at home. I use mine to make “bread crumbs” from GF oats and stale corn chips to use in meat loaf.

  1470. Sarah

    I often sigh when a recipe calls for the use of a food processor, so I would love one. I’ve always wanted to use it to make bread and other doughs.

    Thanks for a great giveaway!

  1471. Kevin

    I love making your Gluten Free and Grain Free “Raw” Granola – I have to process in batches because all i have is a “mini” food processor. Actually I end needing to run many batches of anything I make with it – pesto, soups, bean spreads and dips, and grinding up chocolate chips to make your almond flour chocolate cake (super yummy)- this 12 cup would go a long way in keeping my counter tops a little cleaner.

    thanks for the wonderful books and website.


  1472. Shawna

    Honestly, one of my favorite things to make with a food processor is a HUGE chopped salad!

  1473. Madeleine

    Oh man, and how could I forget — LATKES. Grating dozens of potatoes by hand takes FOREVER. I’d definitely celebrate a new food processor by eating latkes until I couldn’t move.

  1474. emily loiselle

    Apple banana coffee cake! Yum! Would love to win the food processor! I have just a tiny one:)

  1475. Carol

    I would make my own peanut butter out of peanuts.

  1476. Susanne

    Love to make Pesto and tomato soup

  1477. Vicky W

    All these great posts have made me hungry!

  1478. A food processor makes a quick, healthy party dip SO easy! My fav: roasted red pepper & walnut dip with organic baby carrot, cucumbers and radishes for dipping *yum* So excited for the chance to win this!

    recipe–> http://girlmeatspaleo.blogspot.com/2011/02/superbowl-sunday.html

  1479. Sarah

    Your double chocolate walnut brownies are my favorite! I’m not forced to be gfree and I prefer these over all others!

  1480. Michele H

    I don’t have one but if I did, the list is endless. Hummus, soup, pesto, my own almond milk and of course, your granola recipe which I cannot wait to try! I am keeping my fingers crossed!

  1481. Angie

    We LOVE your pumpkin bars, a favorite treat in our house!

  1482. Michelle

    This is the BEST giveaway! I would make my own nut butters, fruit and nut bars, and banana soft serve!

  1483. cyndi fecher @ kitschandkin.tumblr.com

    I love to make hummus in the food processor, especially beet hummus!

  1484. Jennifer

    I love to make homemade granola; I use my processor to chop nuts and make date paste.
    Have a beautiful day!

  1485. Mathew

    I’ve been dying to make this creamy almond sauce that my mom used to make for our rice. Once I get a blender, it will be first on my list!

    Oh–and mashed cauliflower is amazingly easy with a processor :)

  1486. Andrea

    Hi Elana, I cycle through many an obsession but Black Bean brownies are my most popular food processor recipe these days. Amidst an inter-nerd inundated with ingenious food bloggers, I frequent this haunt most have been know to refer to you as one of my heros. I hope you don’t mind and I hope you never get bored of sharing your delicious recipes :)

  1487. Vered

    I loooooove to make cashew sauce in a cuisinart! And I love your chocolate beet torte also.

  1488. Tina

    I love pesto!!

  1489. We love to make salsa and this year’s garden is designed to support some serious salsa making. But our current processor lacks a couple blades and just doesn’t have much power. I would love to finally upgrade after so many years with the Target variety!! And our salsa would go so much faster!!!

  1490. I’ve been making a dessert of nut butter, melted coconut oil and honey. I put it all in the food processor until smooth and then refrigerate it. I put some sesame seeds before the fridge so they harden with the dessert.

    The silly thing is so easy and yet incredibly delicious – hard not to eat the entire thing in one sitting!!

  1491. Emily

    I love making salsa in my food processor. However, mine is pretty small so I have to make it in two or three batches. I would love to get a big, heavy duty one!

  1492. Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday @ gamereviewwiki.com/bikinibirthday

    I like using a food processor for making nut butter and grinding hard cheese.

  1493. ali

    My favorite foods to make in a food processor are pesto and hummus. I’ve also been meaning to try your chocolate hazelnut spread.

  1494. hello elana, one of my favorite things to use a food processor for is hummus. my sister has a cuisinart and it blends the chickpeas to such a nice smooth consistency. take care, good luck with the giveaway!

  1495. Becky Rawalt

    I don’t have a food processor & wouild love to try your power bar recipe! Thanks for your ongoing GF inspiration, Elana! My son, mother & I are all GF and we love your recipes :-)

  1496. Fran Danner

    Thank you so much for vegan/gf recipes. My DH is gf & I am vegan so finding recipes we both can enjoy is a challange. I really love the mulberry granola – I supstitued cranberries for the mulberries.

    I’d love to have a new food processor and especailly a Cuisinart. Mine is an oldie but a goodie but new is always nice, too.

    Thanks for all the great recipes & gf advice!


  1497. Nikki

    I would love to try the power bar recipes to grind up all of the nuts, the pictures look amazing!

  1498. I’ve been trying to make my own hummus using the Vitamix but it’s one thing the Vitamix is not so spectacular at. Right now my favorite hummus recipe is with cilantro, olive oil, chickpeas, himalayan salt, and fresh squeezed lime. mmmm

  1499. I would make almond pesto!!!!!

  1500. Christina

    Sign me up!

    My favorite recipe in a food processor is my crepe recipe!

    1 cup flour
    1/2 to 1 cup milk
    2 eggs
    1 teaspoon butter
    1 tablespoon vanilla
    1/2 cup agave nectar
    (optional: add 1/2 cup cottage cheese for extra protein – you won’t taste it, I promise)

    Blend – and poor in pan individually to make tini crepes. (swirl frying pan to get desired thickness) Serve immediately, or have as a protein enriched snack later. I serve with light yogurt and peanut butter. ;)



  1501. Joey Wemple @ aol

    I would like to make guacamole with a few pulses of a Cuisinart it would be done. Salsa would be another thing I would make.

  1502. Gina

    I love making Romesco Sauce: roasted red peppers, roasted almonds, fresh parsley, garlic, red wine vinegar, olive oil and salt. So good!

  1503. Linzee Ruiz

    I have been thinking about purchasing a food processor for along time. There are several recipes I would like to try that require a food processor. Today I would especially like to try the Chocolate Cranberry Power Bar.

  1504. Joey Wemple @ aol

    I would make guacamole with a few pulsed of a Cuisinart it would be done. I would also make salsa.

  1505. Jennifer @ inkwell-tattoo.com

    I would make so many things! Cauliflower mash, almond pesto, jelly donut cupcakes. Thanks for the opportunity!

  1506. Chris

    I would make fig newtons as I miss them since I am Gluten free now. Thanks for blessing so many with your fabulous recipes.

  1507. Louise Golden

    If I had a food processer I would make my husband gluten free crackers! I would love to be the one to win this great gift :)

  1508. Marjorie

    Making pesto or salsas are my favorite with a food processor. Would LOVE this new one since the one I currently have is a mini one.

  1509. Lisa Barker

    I love your blog! I would love a cuisinart as I only have a blender and I use it as a food processor (which sometimes does not work very well!)

    I make all your recipes, but I don’t use agave. I substitute stevia and sometimes a blend for the agave and they come out really good most of the time!

    Lisa B

  1510. Melissa R.

    I love fresh pesto but you really need to make in a food processor! That would be the first thing I make if I won this! Thanks for a great giveaway!

  1511. Thank you for such a fantastic give away! Thank you also for such a wonderful collection of recipes. I have been a fan for quite some time.

  1512. i would try your Chocolate Espresso Power Bars and share them with all my friends that are feeling low and we would commiserate and feel better because we are eating chocolate AND it’s ok for us to eat!!!

  1513. Nyla Shireman

    It would be great having a food processor for making cashew cheese It is a great “cheesy” sauce that has no cholesterol or saturated fat.

  1514. Emily

    If I had a cuisinart I would make Almond butter vegan cheescake, hazelnut and walnut pesto, homemade goat cream butter, yummy carrot ginger soup and cold avocado dill soup and soooooo many other tasty and delicious things!!!

  1515. Amy Wyman

    My favorite recipe using a Cuisinart is definitely your Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies! So easy and so super delicious. My Cuisinart is about as old as yours- it was one of the first things my husband and I bought when we moved in together, and we’ve been married 12 years this year! A shiny new one would be fabulous!

  1516. Kate (Peacocks & Moonshine) @ peacocksandmoonshine.com

    Although I don’t have celiac disease, I recently discovered I have a gluten intolerance and have been on a hummus kick. My little $15 blender doesn’t quite cut it, so with a brand new cuisinart food processor I would make this sweet potato hummus recipe i’ve been dieing to try. Next up would be Betsy’s Multi “Grain” Crackers to dip :)

  1517. Valjene Kramer @ valcarlk@gmail.com

    I love making Carrot Cake Bites. My friends like them, too!

  1518. Kari

    Hard to say since now, without owning a FP, I avoid recipes that suggest it’s use. A whole new world would be opened up! I really want a food processor, and now you’ve made me want a vita-mix, too.

  1519. Liz Dyer

    I like making sorbet in my food processor, I blend agave and avocado and add frozen fruit. I can’t make very big batches in my 7 quart one though.

  1520. Kristin

    I love to make hummus with a food processor! I have a tiny one and would love to have one so I could use it for baking and making food for dinner parties!

  1521. Shelley

    Double chocolate walnut brownies and pesto!

  1522. Thanks for such a fabulous give away! Thanks, too, for all your fabulous recipes. (I am having trouble posting this comment. Hope it doesn’t appear twice. If so, I apologize.)
