5 Nutty Recipes That Are Blowing My Mind

I love nuts and coconut, and eat more than my fair share on a daily basis. Good sources of fibre, protein, and great-for-you fats, nuts bring the good vibes. Here are 5 nut/coconut recipes that put my PB toast to shame (and yes, I know that the coconut is not officially a nut.) *The photos were all taken by the respective bloggers with the exception of the chile lime roasted almonst photo which was taken by me.

I’ve been making these Chile Lime Roasted Almonds quite frequently since I developed the recipe for Tuja Wellenss. The heat, the sweet, the sour, and the salty. What better combo is there, really?Chile Lime Roasted Almonds

This Lemon Balm and Cashew Pesto from Healthy Green Kitchen is so vibrant. I’ve been eating pesto on roasted veggies lately like it’s my j.o.b.Lemon Balm and Cashew Pesto

This Roasted Hatch Chile Cashew Cream on the most beautiful sandwich I’ve ever seen from Beard and Bonnet. Mind blown. Roasted Hatch Chile Cashew Cream

The savoury vegetable loaf isn’t done nearly enough. This example from Gourmand in the Kitchen is why we need to branch out more often. Such beauty! Savory-Summer-Squash-Zucchini-and-Carrot-Vegetable-Loaf-on-gourmandeinthekitchen.com

    Thanks for including my Golden Beet Soup with Creamy Garlic Cashew Cream recipe. So honored to be with so many talented bloggers. Your almonds look amazing and seriously why I have I NOT been eating pesto on all my roasted veggies. Must start immediately.
