nuts & seeds

Ideas with nuts and edible seeds.

Nuts and seeds

Nuts are rich in nutrients, including proteins, and they can be the main ingredient in a recipe on their own right. They can also be used as garnish, adding texture and crunch to other dishes.

Hummus

10 minutes
4 servings

Use hummus as a dip or a spread for sandwiches. It is especially good on toasted pita bread. Hummus is rich in fiber, iron and vitamin C. It is also a good source of protein.

Amish peanut butter

1 batch

Amish peanut butter is a spread for bread rolls. Amish peanut butter can also be purchased from several companies that specialize in Amish foods, but why buy something that is easily made at home? This does make a rather large batch. It stores well in a sealed container, but making a half batch works well too.

Sesame

Sesame has a unique flavor, reminiscent of sunflower seeds.  Used in Middle Eastern cuisine, where is added to breads, cakes, used as tahini paste, or as an ingredient in confectionery, as in halva. In Oriental cuisine, sesame seeds are frequently toasted or ground in Chinese, Japanese and Korean cooking, as a condiment.
