This recipe serves 3-4 and I love to team it with a good serving of black rice and sauerkraut for a meal that makes a great lunchbox. This can also be a nice side dish at a bbq, picnic or pot luck style dinner party where everyone brings something. It’s very simple, with the right …

Who doesn’t love a good nut butter?! Except those poor people that are allergic to nuts (the horror!); if this is you then substitute the almonds for sunflower seeds to make an almighty seed butter, totally delicious also. You can buy so many varieties of nut butter these days, made different according to the nuts …
