I’m allergic to tree nuts (except pistachios) – and this allergy has actually led to motivation for many of the recipes on my blog, some of my favorites:salty honey seed pie for thanksgiving, black and white sesame milks, sesame-based marzipan. The next seed-based treat I’m thinking up (and will hopefully make) is a seed-based baklava!!! WE’LL SEE. This is another one, and one I’m VERY excited about, because it’s not a decadent dessert – it’s a dressing that you can use on a daily basis. I’ve made vinaigrettes and other thinner dressings, because that’s really what I gravitate towards – I’ve never been a creamy dressing kind of person, but this dressing changes everything. It’s creamy and thick, and ripe with a nutty flavor that comes from pumpkin seeds. It takes on this delicate, pale, green color, has some tang, but is subtle and mild enough to coat a salad, beans, or whatever you want, and provide that extra nuttiness in flavor. It’s a simple recipe: a small amount of thick pumpkin seed milk, something sweet, a clove of garlic, vinegar, good olive oil – blend it all in a trusty vitamix, and you are set.
