roasted pistachio nut butter


I use a lot of pistachios. I know this. I have good reasons to though. Like.... - pistachios are my favorite nut.... followed closely by pecans - they are beautifully colourful - roasted with salt & lemon they are absolutely divine - we have an abundant supply of them courtesy of my friend's aunt who has a farm



Does that explain it? Would you say it sums it up nicely? I would. In fact, I do.

I also happens to be addicted to every kind of nut butter I can get my hands on. I'm limited here to walnut, almond & peanut... but any time I go back to the US I bring back pecan, cashew, hazelnut & anything else I can find.


What I'm saying is I made roasted pistachio nut butter for myself. I spread it over toasted slices of the blueberry, oat & buckwheat bread I made a couple days ago... perfect combination.


I had an idea something along the lines of using it to cover the outside of a rack of lamb to create a delicious crust on it....


I'm thinking about adding a tablespoon or two to a white chocolate ganache.

....either way, there's more you can do with this than just put it on toast. Use your imagination xxx


Ingredients: (makes 2 jars) - 560g roasted, unsalted pistachios - 90ml (6 tbs) pistachio oil - 0.5 tsp sugar (if you want it sweet... I opt not to add it)


Directions: 1. combine all the ingredients in a blender & blend until it's reached the desired texture. I prefer mine smooth. 2. spread on toast & enjoy


Tips: *** if you would like it creamier, add another half a tablespoon of oil & pulse, keep adding until it reaches the desired consistency. Keep note though that the more oil you add, the more runny your end result will be. The same goes for a crunchier version, add less oil.
