Pumpkin seed butter

Pumpkin Seed Butter

This makes the perfect alternative to peanut butter, and is especially suitable for nut allergy sufferers. Simply take your desired quantity of pumpkin seeds (raw or toasted) and pop them into a food processor (warning: you’ll need a strong one, and be careful not to let it overheat!). Pulse, then run continuously until the seeds transform into a smooth paste - this will take 5 to 10 minutes. Add a couple of teaspoons of rapeseed oil, and a bit of salt if you desire. Then enjoy! Store in a clean jar in the fridge.

Polenta coating tips & tricks

Polenta Coating

Polenta mixed with dried thyme and vegetarian hard cheese makes a great coating for homemade Glamorgan or vegetarian sausages or bean burgers - perfect for an indoor barbecue. Dip the sausages or burgers in beaten egg and then into the herby, cheesy polenta crumb - make sure they get a good coating. Then pan cook until crisp and serve immediately.
