We are about to buy a food processor after not having one for several years. What should we make first?

Sounds like a tart or quiche should go on our menu plan for the week...

A seasonal, spring pesto! Ramp, pea shoot, whatever yummy greens are in season. Or homemade nut milk! Use a creamy, softer type of nut like cashew or macadamia - with good food processor you don't even have to strain it (so I've heard, mine isn't that good). DIY nut/grain milks are so much more flavorful and rich than store bought-lightly sweetened with some honey and cinnamon, it's so yummy. https://food52.com/blog...

Hummus. Creamy Broccoli Soup! Pizza Dough!

Hummus is definitely on our list. We've been doing it in a blender, but it has to be pretty thin.

Anything you like and make often.
Or like and are discouraged from making because of the prep.
Shredded potatoes for rosti. Sliced vegetables for salad. Pillowy light quennelles. Bread dough, especially one with whole grains or a heavy texture. Cracker dough. Mayonnaise. Home-made nut butter. Etc. Enjoy :)

I've almost forgotten what we used to make in ours before! I try not to let prep work discourage us from making anything, especially on weekends. We'll definitely be trying our old bread/pizza dough recipes this week.
I've also never had the shredding blades before, so I'm excited for some potatoes, ooh, and maybe carrot cake.

May I suggest a nut butter? Molly Yeh has a delicious recipe for a pistachio white chocolate butter in her cookbook.
