Cuisinart Smart Power Blade
The Cuisinart 4-Cup Mini-Prep Plus Processor handles a variety of food preparation tasks including chopping, grinding, pureing, emulsifying and blending. The patented auto-reversing blade provides a super-sharp edge for the delicate chopping of herbs and for blending and pureing other soft foods, while the blunt edge offers a powerful cutting surface to grind through spices and other hard foods. Pulse activation gives maximum control for precision processing, whether chopping or grinding.
4-cup Work Bowl With Handle
The powerful high-speed motor works hard and fast to accomplish any small job with ease. Chop herbs, onions, garlic; grind spices, hard cheese; pure baby foods; blend mayonnaise and flavored butters, all with the same compact appliance. The Mini-Prep Plus Processor takes up minimum counter space and stores neatly on the countertop or in a cabinet.
Spatula (not shown)
TIPS FOR PROCESSING FOOD Preparing the Food
Size Always cut large pieces of food into smaller pieces of even size about 12 inch (12mm) to a side or as specified under Operating Techniques on page 4. If you don't start with pieces that are small and uniform, you will not get an even chop. Quantity Do not overload the work bowl. Overloading causes inconsistent results and it strains the motor. Use the quantities given in the recipe section as a guide. As a rule of thumb, remember that after being processed, food should not reach more than 23 of the way up the central hub of the blade assembly. Note: Due to the powerful motor provided with this unit, Cuisinart recommends using one hand to support the Mini-Prep Plus Processor during operation. Selecting the Right Operating Control Use the chop function for chopping, pureing and mixing. It is the right choice, for example, for chopping soft, fragile food such as herbs, celery, onions, garlic and most cheeses. It is also the right choice for pureing cooked vegetables, making mayonnaise and mixing salad dressing. Pulse action is best when you are using the chop function. Two or three pulses are often enough. Be sure to check the food frequently to prevent overprocessing. If you overprocess, you are likely to get a watery paste instead of a fine chop. Use the grind function for grinding spices, and for chopping hard food such as peppercorns, seeds, chocolate and nuts.
Continuous-hold action is best when you are using the grind function. You may have to operate the Mini-Prep Plus Processor for several seconds with some food to achieve the desired results as long as 20 seconds for some seeds. When you operate the unit for more than 10 seconds, use a pulse action every 10 seconds or so to allow food to drop to the bottom of the work bowl. This provides more consistent results. Never operate the Mini-Prep Plus Processor continuously for longer than 1 minute at a time. Note: The work bowl and cover may become scratched when you use them for grinding grain and spices. This does not affect the performance of the Mini-Prep Plus Processor. However, you may want to reserve the original bowl for grinding, and purchase an additional bowl and cover set for other uses. These are available from the Cuisinart Customer Service Department, which you can reach by dialing our toll-free number: 800-726-0190. Adding Liquid You can add liquids such as water, oil or flavoring while the machine is running. For example, you might want to add oil when making mayonnaise or salad dressing, or you could add vanilla or alcohol when making frozen yogurt. Pour the liquid through one of the two openings in the cover. IMPORTANT: Add liquid through only one opening at a time. The other opening must be left free to allow air to escape. If both openings are blocked, liquid cannot flow smoothly into the bowl. Removing Food from the Sides of the Bowl Occasionally food will stick to the sides of the bowl as you process. Stop the machine to clear food away. AFTER THE BLADE HAS STOPPED
MOVING, remove the cover, and use the spatula to scrape the food from the sides of the bowl back into the center. Do not put hands into bowl unless unit is unplugged.
1. Place the work bowl firmly on the motor base and insert the blade assembly. Opening at back of bowl must face column at back of the Mini-Prep Plus Processor. Turn counterclockwise to lock in place. 2. Place food in the work bowl. Be sure the food is cut in small pieces, and the bowl is not overloaded. 3. Lock the cover into position. Note: Due to the powerful motor provided with this unit, Cuisinart recommends using one hand to support the Mini-Prep Plus Processor during operation. 4. Press the appropriate chop or grind Control, depending on the food you are processing. 5. When you have finished processing the food, stop the machine by releasing the control button. 6. WHEN THE BLADE STOPS MOVING, remove the cover. 7. nplug the unit. U 8. arefully remove the blade assembly, C holding it by the handle on the top of the sheath. NEVER TOUCH THE BLADE ITSELF. 9. Remove food with the spatula. Note: Do not operate the Mini-Prep Plus Processor without food contents in work bowl. Tip: Process foods in order from dry to wet to avoid having to clean bowl and blade between each task.
TO REMOVE PREP BOWL
1. Turn the work bowl cover clockwise and remove. 2. Turn the work bowl clockwise to unlock and lift off of the base. 3. Carefully remove the blade by lifting it up from the hub.

See Operation/Technique Chart on following pages.
CLEANING AND STORAGE
To simplify cleaning, rinse the work bowl, cover, and blade immediately after each use, so that food wont dry on them. Wash blade assembly, work bowl, cover, and spatula in warm soapy water. Rinse and dry. Wash the blade carefully. Avoid leaving blade in soapy water where it may disappear from sight. If you have a dishwasher, you can wash the work bowl, cover, blade assembly, and spatula on the top rack. Insert the work bowl upside down and the cover right side up. Put the blade and spatula in the cutlery basket. Unload the dishwasher carefully to avoid contact with the sharp blade. Wipe the motor base clean with a damp sponge or cloth. Dry it immediately. Never submerge the motor base or the plug in water or other liquid. The Mini-Prep Plus Processor stores neatly on the countertop in a minimum of space. When it is not in use, be sure to leave it unplugged. The hidden cord storage underneath the motor base will help to keep excess cord off the countertop. Store the unit assembled to prevent loss of parts. Store the blades as you would sharp knives out of the reach of children. The Mini-Prep Plus Processor is intended for HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY. Any service other than cleaning and normal user maintenance should be performed by an authorized Cuisinart Service Representative.

The PowerPrep Metal Dough Blade is specifically designed to work in conjunction with our DOUGH control when making yeast doughs. One touch of the DOUGH button makes perfect dough in seconds.
unplug the machine, remove the cover, lift the blade out carefully and remove the wedged piece. Empty the bowl, reinsert the blade and lock the cover and pusher into place. Press the ON button and drop the food pieces through the small feed tube opening while the machine is running. After adding a cupful this way, add the remaining food to the bowl and process in the usual manner. To chop hard foods: To chop hard food like garlic and hard cheese, assemble the unit, remove the small pusher, press the ON button and drop the food through the small feed tube while the machine is running. Small foods like garlic can be dropped in whole. Large foods like hard cheese should be cut into 1-inch (2.5cm) pieces. This method of processing minces garlic, shallots and onions. Hard cheese and coconut will have the same texture as if they had been hand grated. IMPORTANT: Never try to process cheese that is too hard to cut with a knife. You may damage the blade or the machine. To chop parsley and other fresh herbs: The herbs, the work bowl and the metal chopping blade must all be thoroughly clean and dry. Remove stems from herbs. Add leaves to bowl and process, using the PULSE button, until chopped as fine as desired. The more herbs you chop at a time, the finer chop you can
TECHNIQUES FOR CHOPPING AND PUREING WITH THE METAL BLADE
To chop raw fruits and vegetables: First, cut the food into 1-inch (2.5cm) pieces. You get a more even chop when all pieces are about the same size. Put no more than the recommended amount of food into the work bowl (see table inside front cover). Lock the cover in place. Press the PULSE button at the rate of 1
obtain. If completely dry when chopped, parsley and other herbs will keep for at least 4-5 days, stored in an airtight bag in the refrigerator. They may be frozen for months, stored in an airtight container or bag. To chop peel from citrus fruit or to chop sticky fruit like dates or raisins: For citrus, remove only the peel with a vegetable peeler, not the white pith which is bitter tasting. Cut the peel into lengths of 2 inches (5cm) or less and process with 1/2 cup (125 ml) of granulated sugar until finely chopped. This may take 2 minutes or longer. For sticky fruit like dates, raisins, prunes and candied fruit, first freeze the fruit for about 10 minutes. Add some of the flour called for in the recipe to the fruit. Use no more than 1 cup (250 ml) of flour for each cup of fruit. To chop meat, poultry, fish and seafood: The food should be very cold, but not frozen. Cut it into 1-inch (2.5cm) pieces to ensure an even chop. Using the ON button, process no more than the recommended amount at one time (see table inside front cover). Press the PULSE button 3 or 4 times at a rate of 1 second on, 1 second off. If the food is not chopped fine enough, let the processor run continuously for a few seconds. Check the texture often to avoid overprocessing. Use a spatula to scrape food
from the sides of the bowl as necessary. To pure meat, poultry, fish and seafood: Prepare the food as described above. Press the PULSE button until evenly chopped, then process continuously to the desired texture. Scrape the bowl with a spatula as needed. Leave the pure in the work bowl and add eggs, cream and seasonings as called for by the recipe. Process to combine thoroughly. Remember, you control texture by the length of time you process. By varying the processing time, you can get a range of textures suitable for hamburgers, hash, stuffed peppers, or smooth mousses. To chop nuts: Chop no more than the recommended amount at one time. Press and release the PULSE button and check frequently to avoid nuts clumping together in a nut butter. When a recipe calls for flour or sugar, add some to the nuts before you chop, about 1/2 cup for each cup of nuts. This allows you to chop the nuts as fine as you want without turning them into a nut butter. You can also chop nuts with a shredding disc. The optional Fine Shredding Disc is particularly good. To make peanut butter and other nut butters: Process up to the recommended amount of nuts. Using the ON
button, let the machine run continuously. After 2 or 3 minutes, the ground nuts will form a ball that will gradually smooth out. Scrape the sides of the bowl and continue processing until drops of oil are visible. Taste for consistency. The longer you process, the softer the butter. For chunk style, add a handful of nuts just after the ball of nut butter begins to smooth out. To make cashew butter, add a little bland vegetable oil. Processor nut butters contain no preservatives. Store in refrigerator to keep from separating. To make flavored butters, spreads and dips: Cut room temperature butter into tablespoon size pieces. Finely chop flavoring ingredients first, such as anchovies, cheese, herbs, etc. Be sure work bowl is clean and dry. Add small hard ingredients like garlic and hard cheese through the feed tube while machine is running. Next, add the butter and process using the ON button, until smooth. Add any liquid ingredients last, while the processor is running, and process just long enough to blend. Process ingredients for spreads and dips the same way. They should be at room temperature and cut into 1-inch (2.5cm) cubes, or added by tablespoonfuls To make mayonnaise: You can make foolproof homemade mayonnaise with your Premier Series 11 Cup Food Processor. The work bowl and metal blade must be clean and dry. Use the metal blade to process
eggs (for safe food procedures, we recommend using pasteurized liquid eggs, or the "cooked egg" recipe on page 52), salt, vinegar or lemon juice, dry mustard, and two tablespoons of the oil until smooth, at least 30 seconds. With the machine running, pour 1/4 cup of the oil into the small pusher. After it dribbles through the pinhole in the bottom, remove the small pusher and very slowly add the remaining oil while the machine runs. Process until all the oil has been added and the mixture is totally emulsified. Remove from the processor, cover and keep chilled until ready to use. Homemade mayonnaise will keep in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days. For a "one egg" batch of basic mayonnaise, use 1/4 cup of liquid pasteurized eggs, 2 tablespoons vinegar or lemon juice, 1 teaspoon dry mustard, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and 1 cup vegetable oil, such as canola oil. For variation, you may experiment with using flavored vinegars, or adding chopped fresh herbs, or even roasted garlic to taste. To make your mayonnaise a little lighter, you may add some well-drained nonfat plain yogurt to taste. To beat egg whites: The work bowl must be absolutely clean. Add 3 or more egg whites (up to 6 large egg whites) and press the ON button. Add about 1 teaspoon of lemon juice or vinegar for every egg white. Vinegar makes stiffer whites; its flavor is hardly detectable in cakes or souffls. Continue pro-
cessing until the egg whites hold their shape, about 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 minutes. To whip cream: Processor whipped cream holds its shape very well. It is good for decoration or as a topping; however, it will not whip to the light, fluffy consistency obtained by methods that beat in more air. Chill the cream well before starting. Process continuously using the ON button, until cream begins to thicken. Then add sugar as desired and continue processing, watching carefully for the desired consistency. For consistently reliable results, add 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of nonfat dry milk for every cup of cream before whipping. To make crumbs and crumb crusts: Cut or break bread, crackers or cookies into 1-inch pieces and place in work bowl. Press the ON button and process continuously until crumbs reach the desired texture. For seasoned crumbs, chop parsley or other fresh herbs with the crumbs. For buttered crumbs, process until the dry crumbs are of the desired texture, then dribble melted butter through the small feed tube opening while the machine is running. For crumb crusts, process crackers or cookies as described above. Add sugar, spices and butter, and cut into pieces as specified by your recipe. Process until well combined. To make pastry: Combine unbleached all-purpose flour, salt and
pieces of very cold butter in the work bowl. Process to the consistency of cornmeal. Sprinkle evenly with the minimum amount of cold liquid in the recipe. PULSE 5 or 6 times. The dough should begin to hold together when pressed. If it is still dry and crumbly, add more water 1 teaspoon at a time until the dough holds together easily. Do not let the dough form a ball in the processor or it will be overworked and tough. Form into a round disc, one inch thick, and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour before using, or double wrap and freeze for later use. To make quick breads and cakes that use baking powder and/or soda: The most important rule for success is not to overmix after adding the flour. The ingredients for these soft doughs should be cold. If the recipe calls for chopped ingredients like lemon peel or nuts, chop them first while the work bowl is clean and dry, then set aside until needed. Put dry ingredients like flour, salt and leavening in the work bowl and process with the metal blade for 5 seconds to mix. Remove and reserve the dry ingredients. Add the eggs and sugar to the work bowl and, using the ON button, process to mix, letting the machine run about 1 minute. Next, add butter, cut into 1-inch pieces and at room temperature. Run machine continuously for a minute, until the butter is thoroughly
Never put your fingers or a spatula into the feed tube.
Never push down hard on the pusher. Use light pressure for soft fruits and vegetables like bananas, mushrooms, strawberries and tomatoes, and for all cheeses. Use medium pressure for most food: apples, celery, citrus fruit,
potatoes and zucchini. Use firm pressure for hard vegetables like carrots and yams.
Remove the slicing or shredding disc: Place two fingers under each side of the disc and lift it straight up. Place the disc on top of the inverted work bowl cover to minimize drips and spills.
feed tube and press the sleeve all the way down. Cut the food in lengths slightly shorter than the feed tube. If slicing one or two long, thin vegetables like carrots, push them to the far left. If you are slicing a few vegetables that are wide at one end and narrow at the other (carrots, celery or scallions), cut them in half and pack in pairs, alternating one wide end up, one narrow end up. French-cut green beans: Trim fresh green beans to feed tube widths. Stack in the feed tube horizontally to about one inch from the top. Use the slicing disc, apply light pressure to the pusher and press the PULSE button until beans are sliced. To make long, horizontal slices of raw zucchini or carrots, use the same procedure. Matchsticks or julienne strips: Process the food twice double slice it. Insert large fruits or vegetables (potatoes, turnips, zucchini, apples) in the feed tube. Cut pieces to fit the feed tube horizontally from end to end. Apply pressure to the pusher while pressing the PULSE button until the food is sliced. You will get long slices. Remove the slices from the work bowl and reassemble. The slices should be assembled horizontally with the cut edges facing front and back. Reinsert them in the feed tube, wedging them in tightly. Slice them again. You will obtain long julienne strips. With the
PRACTICING SLICING AND SHREDDING
1. Insert a slicing or shredding disc, put the cover on the work bowl and insert the food in the feed tube. 2. Slide the pusher into place, and apply pressure to the pusher while pressing down the PULSE button. Release the button as soon as the food is sliced or shredded. 3. You can load the feed tube repeatedly without removing work bowl cover. Simply grasp the pusher and lift up. The pusher assembly will come off easily, leaving the cover and feed tube in place. Your other hand is free to reload the feed tube, and you do not need to re-press the ON button if it was previously selected.
TECHNIQUES FOR SLICING AND SHREDDING
Small, round fruits and vegetables: For large berries, radishes and mushrooms, trim the bottom ends flat with a knife. Insert the food through the feed tube, standing each piece on a flat end. You can fill the tube to about 1 inch (2.5cm) from the top. The bottom layer gives you perfect slices for garnish. If you want all the slices to be perfect, its best to process one layer at a time. Long fruits and vegetables: Trim foods like bananas, celery and zucchini by cutting them into pieces slightly shorter than the feed tube. Cut both ends flat. (Use a ruler as a guide, or the pusher assembly.) Fill the feed tube with the pieces, standing them vertically and adding enough pieces so they are solidly packed and cannot tilt sideways as they are sliced or shredded. Small amounts of food: Use the small feed tube and the small pusher. Remove the small pusher from the pusher assembly. Place the pusher assembly onto the

most cheeses except soft ones. The exception is mozzarella, which shreds well if thoroughly chilled. Hard cheeses like Parmesan shred well only at room temperature. Therefore, only attempt to shred mozzarella when well chilled, and Parmesan when at room temperature.
the ingredients are mixed. Although 30 seconds are usually sufficient, 60 to 90 seconds give better results if the machine does not slow down. Except for kneading, described below, the processing procedures and use of the DOUGH button are the same for both types of dough. Machine capacity: Recommended maximum amount of flour is 5 cups of all-purpose flour or 2-3/4 cups of whole-grain flour. If a bread dough calls for more than the recommended amounts of flour, mix and knead it in equal batches. Do the same for sweet doughs that call for more than 3-1/2 cups of flour. Using the right blade: Use the metal dough blade when the recipe calls for more than 3-1/2 cups (17-1/2 ounces) (875 ml) of flour. Use the metal chopping blade when a recipe calls for less than 3-1/2 (875 ml) cups of flour. Because the metal dough blade does not extend to the outside rim of the work bowl, it cannot pick up all the flour when small amounts are processed. Measuring the flour: Its best to weigh it. If you dont have a scale, or the recipe does not specify weight, measure by the stir, scoop and sweep method. Use a standard, graduated dry measure, not a liquid measuring cup. With a spoon or fork, stir the flour in its container. Do not measure flour directly
out of the bag; it is too packed to get an accurate measure. With the dry measure, scoop up the flour so it overflows. With a spatula or knife, sweep excess flour back into the container so the top of the measure is level. Do not pack flour into the dry measure. Proofing the yeast: The expiration date is marked on the package. To be sure your yeast is active, dissolve it in a small amount of warm liquid (about 1/3 cup [75 ml] for one package of dry yeast). The temperature of liquid used to dissolve and activate yeast must be between 105 and 115F (40C and 46C). Yeast cells are not activated at temperatures lower than this and they die when exposed to temperatures higher than 130F (54C). If the recipe includes a sweetener like sugar or honey, add a teaspoon with the yeast. If no sweetener is called for, add a pinch, or add a pinch of flour. The yeast wont foam without it. Let the mixture stand until it foams, up to 10 minutes. Processing dry ingredients: Put the flour in the work bowl with all the other dry ingredients. If the recipe calls for herbs, oil or solid fats like butter, add them with the flour. Turn the machine on and let it run for about 20 seconds. (Cheese, nuts and raisins may be added with the dry ingredients or during the final kneading. To leave them almost whole, add them 5 seconds before you
Butternut Squash Bisque with Roasted Cremini Mushrooms
Most cream soups are laden with heavy cream and fat. This soup uses half & half and rice to make it rich and creamy. Makes eight 7-ounce servings Preparation: 40 to 45 minutes 12 ounces Cremini mushrooms, stems removed and reserved medium onion (about 6 ounces), cut in 1-inch pieces clove garlic, peeled pounds butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut to fit large feed tube sweet potato (about 10 ounces) tablespoon unsalted butter 3 teaspoons curry powder tablespoons white rice cups low salt, nonfat chicken or vegetable stock

Pesto, Cheese & Fresh Tomato Pizza
Homemade pesto and fresh, ripe tomatoes from the garden make this a great summertime pizza. Makes two 12 - 14 inch pizzas or four 8 - 9 inch pizzas, to serve 6 Preparation: 1 hour for the pizza dough (Recipe, page 35); 20 minutes plus 12 minutes baking and resting time Pizza Dough, p. 1/ounces firm but ripe plum tomatoes ounce Reggiano Parmesan, cut in 1/2-inch cubes ounces fresh mozzarella, well chilled 2 ounces Italian Fontina cheese tablespoons Pesto, p. 43 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
Cornmeal for dusting the peel or pan
Prepare the Pizza Dough and let rise. Position the top rack of the oven about 8 inches from the top. If using a baking stone, place it on the rack. Preheat the oven to 500 F. Bring 6 cups of water to a boil in medium saucepan. Cut a shallow x in the bottom of each tomato. Blanch the tomatoes in the boiling water for 30 seconds, then immediately plunge them into a bowl of iced water. When cool, slip the skins off. Slice the stem end off each tomato; set aside. Insert the metal blade. With the machine running, drop the Parmesan cheese cubes down the small feed tube; process 15 seconds and leave in bowl. Insert the shredding disc and shred the mozzarella and fontina. Remove the cheese to a bowl; toss to combine, and reserve. Insert the slicing disc. Place the tomatoes in the small feed tube one at a time, and slice, using light pressure. Place the sliced tomatoes on a triple thick layer of paper towels to drain. When the dough has risen, punch down and divide into 2 or 4 equal balls. Let rest 10 minutes. Roll the dough out to size. Place on a bakers peel that has been sprinkled with cornmeal. Brush the edges with the olive oil. Using an offset spatula, spread the pizza with the pesto sauce to 3/4 inch of the edges, using 3 tablespoons on each 14-inch pizza or 1-1/2 tablespoons on each 9-inch pizza. Divide the shredded cheeses evenly and sprinkle on the pizzas. Top with the drained sliced tomatoes. Carefully slide the pizza onto the stone (position the peel over the back edge of the stone, and use a rocking motion to shake and slide the pizza off the peel onto the stone), or place the pan in the hot oven. Bake the pizza for 5 minutes, then rotate it front to back for even baking. Bake for another 3 to 6 minutes until the pizza is bubbly, and the edges of the dough are golden brown, puffed and crispy. Remove from the oven and let rest on a rack for 2 to 3 minutes before slicing.
