A small post today, folks. I just wanted to pop by to say “hello!”, to check how your weekend was…did you feel sunshine on your body and drink gin? I hope so. I also wanted to inquire as to why we are not eating more pumpkin seed butter? What is going on here? Have we not realised the deliciousness yet? Do tell.
I recently discovered pepita spread in a health food store, Mayver’s brand. The very next morning I put in on my porridge and promptly flipped out. It is DELICIOUS. Yet I am not aware of others diving in with super eager spoons. Am I missing something? I spoke with Hannah on this very topic when she visited last week (she has sure authority on all things nut butter) and we agree on the distinct lack of pumpkin seed butter love songs. I’ve heard nothing on its loveliness across the interwebs or whilst grooving down supermarket aisles. We certainly aren’t ravaging it as keenly as we do tahini or peanut butter. Why is that, friends? It’s so very very good.
This porridge bowl above consisted of rolled oats + steel cut oats (1/4 cup of each) that were cooked in milk and topped with berries, toasted walnuts and a hefty spoonful of pumpkin seed butter. There was also coffee, because it is possibly my most true love. If I had to choose between coffee or porridge I would not hesitate in screaming “coffee”. Maybe that’s the coffee talking. Whatever, it’s right.
And if I had to choose between nut/seed butters? Well, pumpkin seed butter would be right up there. Do you agree?
Happy Monday! My day is looking like a walk with Serial, morning clients then home to work on a few business-related tasks while making chicken stock, then soup for dinner. So, pretty great. Have a lovely one! And please tell your pumpkin seed butter thoughts. I’m dying to hear all about them.
