I've been wanting to own a food processor ever since I got hooked up on tv's food channel a few years ago. But I never really thought I would get so into cooking that I'd actually own one. Mom will be so proud, haven't told her yet mihihi... Anyways I received an email from LAZADA representative asking whether I'd be interested to tell my shopping experience with Lazada in exchange for a shopping voucher. Yes peeps this is a promoted post ;) but not just any coz I'll be reviewing my shopping experience, the product & a bonus recipe for you guys!
First thing that came into my mind was to purchase a FOOD PROCESSOR! And maybe a few facial masks haha. I browsed around at the website and they have quite a few choices with prices ranging as low as RM75 - crazy thousands ringgits! :O I had no idea food processor can get super expensive.............. But then again what am I complaining, during my research for finding a slow juicer - I read that the best slow juicer can get up to RM5k...... Cray cray!! I mean if you have the budget just go for it but I don't and I was pretty happy finding out that they have trustworthy home appliances brands like Kenwood, Panasonic and Breville (just to name a few). I chose Panasonic MK-5087M because it's affordable, has a few blades to choose from and looks like easy to learn & use. My second choice would've been this Philips Compact 3-in-1 Food Processor but after much discussion with Naz we decided on Panasonic.

After the excitement of unpacking my new kitchen appliances, I immediately decided to make a simple snack using it!
Hummus (Arabic: حُمُّص) is a Middle Eastern and Arabic food dip or spread made from cooked, mashed chickpeas blended with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic. Today, it is popular throughout the Middle East, Turkey, North Africa, Morocco, and in Middle Eastern cuisine around the globe.Many cuisine-related sources describe hummus as an ancient food, or connect it to famous historical figures such as Saladin. Indeed, its basic ingredients— chickpeas, sesame, lemon, and garlic—have been eaten in the region for millennia. Thanks Wikipedia for the enlightment!
However today, I don't have tahini a.k.a sesame seed paste and I'm going to substitute it with peanut butter! I use an organic peanut butter, you can use whichever you want whether it's chunky or smooth peanut butter it's up to you.
Now that's the dip, what are things we gonna dip it with? Easy snacks, fresh raw veggies! Also a good way to test the slicing blade ;)
I would've added cucumber/zucchini if I had any too..
Fuh, now that was easy huh?
