A few days ago I received a box in the mail and I instantly knew what was waiting for me! The kind people from Artisana Foods send me a package full of goodies to try. First of all I have to say I love both of their nut butters presentations! Being able to carry around wherever you go a proper quantity of nut butter for any “emergency” makes me thrill, so cool! I had seen this before but not here in Canada, just the glass containers.
Anyways, they were so nice to send me each one of their different flavors. They have so much variety! My first move was to open the almond single serve pack. Delicious! Then after a while I opened the walnut flavor and again: two thumbs up! I do have to say I wish it was a little bit smoother I felt it was too chunky, but that’s just my personal opinion because I prefer smoother butters. Anyways, I kept tasting them with the pass of the days and OH MY GOODNESS.. THE butter finally came to me: Cashew Butter! I swear I kept squeezing that little pack until I think there was nothing else than plastic haha. So good! I definitively declare myself a fan number one. Of course I didn’t ate them all just like that, I made a few recipes that I’ll be sharing with you in the next couple of posts, so keep an eye!
Today, to begin with, we’ll start with Macadamia Butter! I made something super easy and so, so good! I used it as a dressing, but if you reduce the liquid amount you can spread it over some collard or kale, fill them up and make some rolls.
You know must of the time my dressings are fruit-based and I love them, but this time I decided to go a little bit creative and try something new. The verdict? DE-LIGHT-FUL!
Gastrawnomica’s Macadamia-Carrot Single Serving Bowl
Serves 1, 5 min preparation
1 cup fresh spinach leaves
1 large carrot, peeled
1/2 red apple, in small chunks
1 long celery stick, chopped
1 Artisana’s Macadamia Butter Single Serving Pack (34 grs)
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 medjool date, pitted
*If you’re not used to eat salt-free, season the dressing according to your taste
Mix your salad ingredients in a bowl. Blend the dressing ingredients in a high speed blender and serve over salad.
It was super good, super easy and seriously a 5 min taker! You must try these butters, specially this presentation which I think is super practical! As you see, I only needed one package and the dressing was more than enough, not too little, not too much.
Anyways, don’t forget to tell me what you think and keep an eye on the blog because more goodies with Artisana’s nut butters will come!
Have an awesome weekend! TTYL
