Spiced Super Seeds Mix
Heat a tbsp of Olive Oil on a pan and add 1 tsp Za’atar spice + 1 tsp cumin. Once roasted, add 1 tsp caster sugar and finally Nutty Gritties Super Seeds Mix. Toss them over the heat for a few minutes. Once caramelised nicely, store in an airtight container and use as a healthy snack with a kick of spice; or sprinkle over salads and soups.
Super Seed Butter
Dry roast 1 cup of Nutty Gritties Super Seeds Mix on a pan for a few minutes, tossing constantly to avoid burning. Let cook, transfer to a high quality food processor or blender and blend at 30 seconds intervals. Scrape down the sides, and repeat the process until the butter-like consistency is formed. At this stage, you can enjoy as is, or flavour with sea salt, honey, cinnamon or vanilla essence. Use over toast as a protein-packed breakfast.
