Roasted seedy nut butter

This recipe from the Something for Everyone cookbook has to be the best nut butter I’ve tasted!

The variety of nuts and seeds makes this healthy alternative to peanut butter full of extra nutrients like calcium, folate, B vitamins, vitamin E, magnesium, and iron.

Roasting the nuts and seeds before blending them really brings out all of the flavours.

This recipe has rice malt syrup or honey as an optional ingredient so I skipped it and I honestly don’t think it needed the sweetener.

It can also be made nut free if you double the amount of seeds and omit the nuts.

Almond milk

It is so easy to make your own Almond Milk with your Thermomix.

The first thing you need to do is soak your almonds for about 14 hours. I soaked 100g of almonds in enough warm water to cover them.

Then all you need to do is drain your soaked almonds. You can pop them in an low oven or dehydrator if you want to activate them. But that requires too much forward planning for me 🙂

Place the soaked and drained almonds into your Thermomix bowl and add 500g of water. Filtered water is best but I just use boiled water.

Blitz on speed 9 for 1 minute and it’s done.

Strain through a nut bag and there you have, quick and easy almond milk. The nut pulp left in the nut bag doesn’t need to go to waste either.

You can use the pulp in place of chickpeas for hummus or make crackers or dehydrate it for almond flour. If you’re not sure what you want to make with the pulp just freeze it until you do 🙂
