Vegetarian uses for the KitchenAid food grinder attachment!?

HumanUnit | Jan 16, 2010 02:54 AM

Hello all! This is my first post! What a great site :).

I feel a bit silly asking this, but I can't seem to get anything by Googling. Long story short, I was starting to get a bit freaked out about commercially ground meat, and so I purchased, via Amazon, a food grinder attachment for my mixer. Well, a couple days after I ordered it, my family decided to cut out meat entirely.

Now, the conundrum is whether I should keep or return the grinder. It's not super expensive - like $40? - but if there's not much that you can do with it that doesn't involve meat, then it's a lot of money to pay for a useless gadget!

What are your thoughts? What can you do with a grinder that doesn't involve meat? Is it pretty much the same thing as a food mill, or not quite?
