Simple Ideas for cooking with Humble nut butter
“The Sundried Basil Cashew; Truffle Herb Walnut; and Spiced Maple Pecan Humble Nut Butters, each have a unique flavor profile. Though in several dishes, they’re interchangeable (noted below). Here are some ideas for enjoying these individual nut butters in ways that highlight their flavors and textures.” – Beth Dooley
SUNDRIED BASIL CASHEW
The sunny flavor notes work nicely dishes from South America, Southern Europe and North Africa.
- Avocado Toast: Spread on whole wheat toast topped with layers of Avocado, with a drizzle of lime juice and chopped cilantro. (Also works with Truffle Herb Walnut.)
- White Bean Salad: Toss with cooked or canned and drained white beans, chopped red peppers, chopped celery and parsley. Serve on a bed of butter lettuce.
- Toss with roasted or blanched carrots and season with orange zest and a drizzle of orange juice.
- Spread over pizza dough and bake in a 350 degree F oven until baking in the oven until the crust begins to brown and the spread is melty, about 5 minutes. Serve topped with fresh arugula and chopped fresh basil.
TRUFFLE HERB WALNUT
The rich mushroom flavor adds a meaty-heft to this spread. It’s a wonderful alternative and/or companion to rich pates and dark poultry.
- Mushroom Duxelle: Toss with sautéed mushrooms and serve over brown rice or mound onto bruschetta.
- Twice Baked Potatoes: Split baked potatoes, spoon in nut butter, and return to the oven until the nut butter melts. Serve garnished with chopped chives and chopped parsley. (Works nicely with the Sundried Basil Cashew, too.)
- Rumaki: Stuff dates and warm in the oven until the nut butter is melty.
- Beyond California Veggie Burger: Spread on your favorite veggie burger and slather with mayonnaise, top with sliced tomato, and lettuce.
SPICED MAPLE PECAN
This is the gateway of spiced, savory butters. Slightly sweet and warmly spiced.
- Wild Rice Pilaf: Stir into wild rice and toss in dried cranberries, toasted pecans, and chopped parsley. If the mixture seems too thick, thin with apple cider.
- Baked Squash: Right before serving, spoon on the pecan butter and garnish with a drizzle of maple syrup.
- Sweet Mash-ups: Mash into sweet potatoes and garnish with chopped walnuts and chopped parsley.
- Spiced French Toast: Slather over French toast as it comes from the frying pan and top with fresh blueberries and/or chopped apples.
- Vegetable Curry: Stir a spoonful of this nut butter into your favorite curry to give it more body. (Also works nicely with the Sundried Basil Cashew.)
