Well it worked out brilliantly as you can see! It takes just a couple of minutes to clean and trim the vegetables to make them fit in the small food pusher tube. Other than that once your prepping is done, you’re in for a pleasant ride!
The slicer blade is sharp and fast. Doesn’t matter how many vegetables you have to cut, the KitchenAid Food Processor will take care of that. And the vegetable bits are of the same thickness which will make your dish cook evenly then.
OK, so the veg are cut and the chef is happy! Remove the Food Processor bowl with the chopped vegetables and attach the bowl of the KitchenAid Cook Processor to the machine. What else do we need to cook our ratatouille stew in? it’s a 2-in-1. Homerun.
In the end: the ratatouille pasta sauce looks terrific, just the way I wanted it to be. Chunky, not too runny, colorful. I served it over cooked ziti pasta. Nothing but hums and yums at our dinner table!

- 1 lb canned chopped tomatoes (450 g)
- 2 bay leaves

Fit the food pusher into to feed tube of the bowl cover. Then add the zucchini, eggplant, bell pepper, onion and garlic to the feed tube. Use the food pusher if necessary, don’t use your fingers!

Remove the food processor bowl and replace it by the Cook Processor bowl. Add the StirAssist and attach the lid. Add the olive oil, bay leaves, rosemary, canned chopped tomatoes, tomato paste and chopped vegetables. Then season with pepper and salt.
