VeggieButter – 5Ways & Counting…

VeggieButter option#1…as a spread✨ This pita packed with fresh veggies, ricotta, and VeggieButter was absolutely delicious. AND a total handful! This was lunch after I had a crew over to help with some outdoor chores – the reviews, “seconds please!”.

*RicottaCheese spread…1/2cup ricotta with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, and a pick of sea salt & pepper. Use a handheld blender to whip it up until light&fluffy. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. Veggies…baby arugula, avocado, red onion, red/yellow bell peppers, cucumber, and alfalfa sprouts.

VeggieButter option#2…on pasta✨ Like they say, stock up on those healthy carbs the day before a BIG run, hike, row – you name it! This flavourful pasta dish will send your energy level well on its way for all your adventure needs. I loved it on @gogoquinoa corkscrew pasta that had the job of holding all that creamy/veggie goodness…AND because it’s organic/vegan/gluten free, digestion should be a breeze.

*I used 1cup of the VeggieButter plus 1/2cup more CashewCream to add a lil’ extra creaminess (see VeggieButter/CashewCream recipe link in profile). Also, the fresh green onions, lemon zest, and sea salt pepitas added a nice balance to all the flavour.

VeggieButter option#3…as a dip✨ I’ve said it before – what better compliments veggies, but more veggies? I always like to have a ‘fresh’ element with my meals so when it comes to a platter of fresh vegetables, I’m all over it. I like to make the rounds so no veg is left out. How about you??…are you a ‘carrot first’ person; or possibly a ‘celery only’ dipper?! I have a ‘fistful of veggies’ plunger in my family that gets the job done quite efficiently in one go – always have extra dip on hand when that one is around!

VeggieButter option#4…on AvocadoToast – the stuff is everywhere so it got a category all its own✨ You won’t find ‘everything but the bagel’ seasoning here (although, super tempted to create a “sprinkle” of my own?)! Just a solid helping of VeggieButter, avocado, alfalfa sprouts, fried egg, CashewCream, & lemon zest piled onto my fave, CampingToast. This was another one that disappeared like lightening after our mini photo-op.

VeggieButter option#5 (best digit ever!)…in soup✨ I added about 1/2-3/4cup to my veggie broth & it instantly turned my soup into something that tasted like it had been simmering for hours – SO good! AND good for you. I’m not a huge vegetable soup fan mostly because the veggies are way overcooked by the second helping (sometimes the first…sorry, moe moe?) so the option to add veggies via broth works great for me. Also, I loove noodles in my soup so no surprise that they made it into this ‘option’ – RiceQuinoa. To top things off, I added chopped Rainbow CherryTomatoes, FreshBasil, & GoatCheese for one; CoconutMilk for the other. Made for one tasty/healthy/hearty meal.
