- 3 sweet potatoes (large, about 1 1/2 pounds, peeled & cut in half horizontally)
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- water (for boiling)
- 3/4 pound brussels sprouts (bottoms trimmed)
- 1/3 cup sliced almonds
- 1/3 cup dried cranberries
- 2 tablespoons basil (minced)
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
- 1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 clove garlic
- Using your KitchenAid® 9-Cup Food Processor with ExactSlice™ system, cut the sweet potatoes and brussels sprouts using the slicing disc. For the sweet potatoes, push the ExactSlice™ lever as far to the right as it goes. Then put your halved sweet potatoes in the wide mouth feed tube. Use the food pusher to engage them with slicing disc, and slice them with the Food Processor on high. You may have to do this in batches depending on how wide your sweet potatoes are. Remove sweet potatoes from bowl.
- Then attach the middle sized feed tube, and add brussels sprouts. Slide ExactSlice™ lever back to the left, to the 2nd notch. Use the food pusher to engage the brussels sprouts with the slicing disc, while the Food Processor is on high.
- Add sweet potatoes and salt to a large pot and fill with water so the sweet potatoes are covered with about 4 inches of water. Bring to a boil, and simmer for 7-8 minutes, until potatoes are fork tender, being careful not to overcook. Remove from heat, stir in brussels sprouts and let sit for one minute. Drain with a colander and pat to dry.
- Put the potatoes and brussels sprouts into a large bowl. Then put the 3-cup work bowl into Food Processor with the multipurpose blade for 3-cup work bowl. Add dressing ingredients and process on high for 20 seconds. Wipe down sides, then process on high for additional 30 seconds.
- Pour dressing onto warm ingredients; add cranberries, almonds and basil, then stir to fully combine. Taste, and adjust salt if needed. Enjoy!
