|Mmmm! Nut butter! Photo Credit: SXC|
As an adult peanut butter has become a staple in my vegetarian diet. But, I no longer opt for the sugar-filled, sodium-added extra creamy varieties. I go for pure nut butters. The ingredient list is simple: nuts.
Never heard of nut butters? Well, practically any nut can me pureed, blended and ground down into a smooth creamy paste. My personal favorites are cashew butter and almond butter.
I've also experimented with seeds and made sunflower seed butter using my food processor. The butter was delicious, but strong, so a little goes a long way!
Have you ever made your own nut butters? How do you like to eat them?
