TEN THINGS To Do with Edible Seeds

I love LISTS and I love things being organized in box-type containers. A TEN THINGS list is like that!  I enjoy writing things in a structured, contained way. You will find links to all the TEN THINGS posts at the end of each. ENJOY!

Seeds are so good for you! They contain so much wonderful stuff – good nutrients, great oils and they are protein power-packs! Here are 10 things you can do with edible seeds. If you’d like any recipes for things in this list, please leave a comment and I’d be happy to send them to you!

1. Sprinkle raw (as in not toasted) seeds  onto salad. I love to add sunflower, sesame and pumpkin seeds to my salad – yummy!

2. Grind up a combination of  seeds in a coffee grinder and sprinkle over salad or blend with a little with fruit juice or water and spread on a cracker for a great savoury protein snack.

3. Make salad sprinkles by blending / grinding 6 T sesame seeds with 2 T nutritional yeast flakes and 1/2 teaspoon salt – adds wonderful texture and flavour to salad.

4. Eat your seeds just as they are as a great snack with some fruit.

5. Add sesame seeds to your date balls (mix equal quantities moistened rolled oats, soaked dates and coconut plus 1T honey and 1T sesame seeds.)

6. Use sesame and sunflower seeds in your homemade muesli.

7. Grind seeds and add to healthy smoothies – we add ground flaxseeds to our cashew and strawberry smoothie for some great fibre.

8. Use sunflower seeds in combination with cashew nuts as a great base for creamy raw dips (other basic ingredients: water, lemon juice and honey).

9. Toast them and use them to top pizza and pasta – pumpkin seeds work great for this.

10. Add pumpkin seeds to your bread dough or brush a loaf or rolls with some butter then sprinkle sesame seeds on top just before baking.

Or – use them to play maths games with your children!

“Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.” Matthew 13 v 31,32
