Do you like adding seeds to your meals and snacks? I do!
Seeds are nutrient dense and they add good flavor and texture to your meals. Sesame seeds, hemp, poppy seeds, flax, sunflower seeds and chia all regularly find their way into or sprinkled on top of the food that I eat. In fact, I prepared a similar squash dish to the one on the cover of this cookbook a few days before my book arrived.
Cooking with Seeds is a beautiful cookbook that I know will get lots of use in my home. It’s organized well with chapters on different types of seeds. There are entrees, side dishes and desserts. It’s great to be able to add extra nutrition to every meal and I like the taste and texture I get with seeds. The recipes incorporate fresh ingredients. Many are easy enough for beginning cooks.
Here are a few of the recipes that are in the book:
- Blueberry Chia Muffins
- Cheddar Hemp Scones
- Chicken Soup with Poppyseed Dumplings
- Smoky Bean Chili
- Gingery Pumpkin Cheesecake
