May 31, 2021

Big (and we mean BIG) news from our friends at KitchenAid! The new KitchenAid 13 Cup Food Processor—a product designed to push the bounds of culinary expression—is thoughtfully designed with features that make it easy to use while delivering the capacity to make meals as big, or as small, as you like. Whether it’s artisan pizza, fresh pie or spicy hummus—or the ratatouille recipe below—there’s room to explore it all with the Food Pro’s 13-cup capacity! —Vita Daily

KitchenAid Ratatouille

Yield: 6 servings
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 60 minutes

Special Equipment: KitchenAid® 13-cup food processor with dicing kit and multipurpose blade; 3 sheet pans; 6 quart dutch oven; saucepan; large bowl; sharp knife; slotted spoon

1 pound (453g) eggplant, ends trimmed and sliced lengthwise into quarters (so pieces will fit through food tube)
2 (282g) zucchini, ends trimmed and sliced lengthwise
2 (392g) yellow squash, ends trimmed and sliced lengthwise
1 (150g) red bell pepper, stem and seeds removed
1 (150g) orange bell pepper, stem and seeds removed
1 (285g) large yellow onion
3 (21g) garlic cloves, minced
4-5 (1120g) large tomatoes
4 sprigs fresh thyme
2 bay leaves
1 tablespoon (17g) sea salt
½ cup (125 ml) olive oil, plus more for roasting vegetables

Preheat the oven to 375°F/190°C.

Prepare the vegetables: Insert the dicing kit into the KitchenAid® 13-cup food processor. Secure the lid and turn the food processor to low speed. Insert the eggplant slices into the food tube and dice the eggplant. Turn off the machine and pour the diced eggplant onto the first sheet pan. Insert the dicing kit back into the food processor, secure the lid, and turn the speed back to low. Feed the zucchini and yellow squash through the food tube, then pour the diced zucchini and squash onto the second sheet pan. Repeat the process for the bell peppers, then pour the diced bell peppers onto the third sheet pan. Drizzle 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil over each tray and use your hands to thoroughly coat all diced vegetables. Place the trays in the preheated oven and roast each pan for 25-30 minutes, or until vegetables are tender and browning at the edges.

While vegetables are roasting, caramelize the onions and garlic and prepare the tomatoes. Heat your dutch oven on medium high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the pot and add the sliced onions. Allow the onions to saute on medium high for about 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, then reduce the heat to medium. Cook the onions, checking on them every 5 minutes to stir them and scrape up any fond that forms on the bottom of the pan. After about 20 minutes, add the sprig of thyme and minced garlic and continue to caramelize for another 3-4 minutes.

While onions are cooking, prepare the tomatoes. Bring a small pot of water to a boil, and fill a bowl with ice and water and set beside the stove. Drop each tomato into the boiling water for about 10 seconds, then use a slotted spoon to quickly transfer the tomatoes to the ice water bath. Repeat with all tomatoes. Then, using your fingers, remove the skins from the tomatoes and discard the skins. Finally, slice the tomatoes in half and remove all seeds. Insert the multipurpose blade into the food processor, add the prepared tomatoes, and then process the tomatoes until smooth.

Once onions are caramelized (they should be golden brown and reduced in size), add the processed tomatoes to the dutch oven along with the bay leaves and salt, then stir to incorporate. Then, add all of the roasted vegetables into the dutch oven. Add ½ cup olive oil into the mixture, stir well, and cover. Increase to medium high heat and bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium and cook, covered, for 30-45 minutes. Serve with crusty bread and another drizzle of olive oil.

    Our food processor is used so much it’s beginning to show its wear.

    Yesterday, I was using my OLD food processor to make coleslaw. I was inserting RED CABBAGE into the feed tube and said to my husband ” I need a NEW and BETTER food processor” This is a mess. Today, the first item in my Gmail is the ad for this contest with the photo of red cabbage being processed. I did not do any online searches on this topic. I do not own Alexa. SPOOKY! It’s a SIGN!
