Avocado-Seaweed Spread

I use to make my nut/seeds butters at home. But now and then I like to buy them (it is good to change once in a while) …Especially because some of the seeds aren’t top of my preferences. Like the pumpkin seeds… I know, they are full of magnesium and zinc and omega 3, but still they aren’t my favourites. Or, to say it better, they weren’t my favourites. Until I found the raw pumpkin seed butter.

I was expecting something heavy and not so easy to …eat, but this butter was something totally different: rich flavour but yet mild. I was so impressed by the taste that I started using it in almost all the recipes, especially in vinegrettes, salads, but also to replace the classic almond or peanut butter. This recipe also is a consequence of this ‘pumpkin butter drogue’ and the result was really good. Important to mention that it’s really crucial to use/make the raw version to make sure you get all the nutrients these seeds have to offer.

Avocado-seaweed spread

Ingredients:
1 avocado, pitted
2-3 ts raw pumpkin seed butter
7 gr dried seeweed/kelp
1 ts miso
the juice of half a lemon

Rinse the seaweed and let it soak for a while. Using a blender, mix all the ingredients.
You can make this spread without using a blender, but I am too lazy so I just blend it for several seconds. I don’t like it when the spread is too smooth, but if you want, just mix it some seconds more.
The result will be the same: a spread with a briny taste due to the seaweed/miso and an interesting and nutty flavor due to its pumpkin seeds. Enjoy it!

  1. Hello, awesome recipe🙂 Where do you buy the kelp – if I may ask. I would like to cook more with algae but I am so limited here – the shops offer so little. Is there some online site you can recommend? I definetely will try this recipe😉 So, far I have prepared sea weed always in very different ways (see https://leckerbiss.com/2016/04/11/sea-salad-served-on-egg-plants/), but I definetely have to try your avocado/pumpkin mix! Best🙂

    • Hello and thank you for your lovely words. I use to buy kelp in bio shops(Belgium). Where are you located? you can also buy them in Asian shops or online(amazon or bio shops). Your recipe sounds delicious too, thank you!
