Interesting Sauces With My Cuisinart Food Processor


Cooking has been kind of an art form for me in the last 10 years or so. It’s definitely an outlet for stress. I really enjoy it, and it gives me the chance to be creative.

Initially, I was only cooking at home 3 times a week or so. Otherwise, I’d order takeout or have other dinner plans which obviously didn’t involve me cooking. Since the pandemic, I’ve cut back on how often I go out, which is closer to once a month now, but typically I still get takeout once a week.

One of the things I love making is sauce. When I say that I don’t necessarily mean your typical tomato sauce or some kind of cream sauce, although I do make these in my food processor as well. My sauce preference is more unique.

I tend to use a lot of herbs and fruit and veggie purées. I’ve stumbled upon some really interesting recipes; some that I follow exactly and others that I just use as a loose guideline for something I want to try. I have to say that I’ve come up with quite a few good ones.

The easiest way for me to attempt this kind of adventure is by using my Cuisinart food processor, which is a lifesaver in so many ways. I use it to chop my garlic which was a massive pain, at least for me. I also detest chopping herbs. It’s just so annoying and the fact that my food processor will do this for me gives it a gold star in my book.

Obviously I purée my fruits and vegetables in it as well. At the end, I combine them all in the food processor until I have my desired consistency. They always come out perfectly.

I took my work bowl out of the dishwasher one day a couple of weeks ago to find that it had a crack in it. I didn’t want to test it to see how it would hold up; I figured it would just be better to order myself a new one. I visited KitchenWorksInc to order my new work bowl. They sell actual Cuisinart-dfp-14 parts. While I was at it, I also ordered some new blades since I was using this gadget more often.

In a few short days I was back to making my sauces. Luckily I had some frozen food that would last me a while, so I never really ran short. I just prefer to have as many options as I can at my disposal.

I’ve been enjoying cooking so much with this newfound love of different types of sauces that I’ve started hosting dinner parties of my own where I invite friends or family over to try them out. As strange as it sounds, it’s a neat way to get to know your friends and family in a new way. I’ve even started gifting them sauces that they’ve given me many compliments on.

So not only is this a great creative outlet for me, I’m cooking more at home which means saving money, I’m eating more healthfully, and I’ve found a new way to connect with the people that are most important in my life. It’s really a wonderful experience and my Cuisinart food processor has basically given me the confidence to make it all happen.
