Tip: Make quick meals using a food processor {Vegan MoFo #14}

by JL Fields on October 19, 2012

My Vegan MoFo theme this year is “Go Vegan with JL…In the kitchen!” in which I reply to your questions about cooking in your vegan kitchen.  (I explain a bit more about my theme and plan for my October posts here.)


Today’s issue:

“I want fast, nutritious meals.”

I receive a wide range of questions and inquiries from readers and clients about how to make quick meals during the week.  Since cooking quick meals is sort of my thing – meaning I am a lazy cook – I think you’ll find that a good number of my recipes are quick and easy.  I also encourage bulk cooking.

But sometimes you don’t have time to bulk cook or you don’t want to pull out the pressure cooker for means in 30 minutes.  Today’s tip: Use a food processor! 

I have created some really fun things on they fly simply by using my food processor.

Not all of these recipes are quick (some are part of a longer process ranging from making seitan to dehydrating crackers) but here are several that help you get a meal, or dessert, on the table in no time:

      Thank YOU, Tess!

  • Great collection of recipe ideas!

    Funny you posted this today. I just made a pizza this morning (for the photo shoot for my new pie book), and used the food processor to make the dough, as I’ve done for the last 20 years. Not bc I’m clever but bc I’m too damed lazy to knead or to even get out my KitchenAid kneading hook. My Regal La Machine FP is 25+ years old–complete with smoky brown plastic–but I love it to bits and use it almost daily.

      I love that idea! I’m lazy, too, and def use the KitchenAid for all kneading – hadn’t thought to use a food processor!

  • I found and bookmarked your site 5 month ago. After reading your article, i ventured to add Kale to my diet. I enjoy reading your blog and the research you have put in. I hope my site will impact readers as your has impacted me.
