Beer Nut And Walnut Butter Spread

BEER NUT AND WALNUT BUTTER SPREAD

Of course this is a high fat spread, but compared to others it’s more nutrient and fiber dense. The grainy texture is more reminiscent of grainy crystals than peanuts. A higher powered food processor would produce a creamier texture, if that’s what you want. I like rustic for this, because I like those fine crystals! Spread on your favorite toasted breads and drizzle with heated jams and/or maple syrup!

Makes approx. 4 cups

TOMATO NUT HUMMUS

A wonderful hummus. Yes, a tomato nut hummus. I make the rules in my kitchen. No beans in this dip. This is the most unfamiliar tasting recipe. The only things familiar are the flatbread and the fact that it’s a dip. Flavors, textures all new! Except that you won’t miss the lamb that generally accompanies the meal. Best to serve it hot though, or at least warm. Your guests will be returning for more, and more and…
