Curried Sunflower Seeds

Curried Sunflower Seeds

Course Snack
Servings 6

Ingredients
  

  • 1 Tbsp. Original Ghee -or Maple Cinnamon Ghee
  • 1.5 Teas. curry powder
  • 1/8 Teas. good salt
  • 1/4 Teas. black pepper
  • 1 Teas. maple syrup
  • 1 cup raw sunflower seeds

Instructions
 

  • Melt the ghee and add the curry, salt, pepper and maple syrup. Stir till incorporated. Add sunflower seeds and a dash of olive oil and stir till seeds are well coated.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread out the seeds evenly. Try not to have them “bunched” together.
  • Place into a 300F preheated oven. In about 10 minutes take them out of the oven and stir – still making sure the seeds are evenly spread out.
  • Taste one (watch out they’re HOT!) and if more salt is needed, sprinkle over seeds.
  • Place back in oven. You will begin to smell them roasting before they burn. Can toss them another time or so to make sure they’re roasting evenly.
  • When golden brown, remove and place on a cooling rack. When cooled, put into a clean jar and lid. Store in fridge.

Notes

Use as a snack.  Adds a nice crunch on top of soups, salads, sauted seasonal greens or rice dishes.
Maple Cinnamon Ghee works perfectly too!

Cook Time 45 mins
Total Time 55 mins
Servings 6

Ingredients
  

  • 2 Cups freshly grated corn - (if using frozen, thaw and blend to break up kernels)
  • 2 Eggs - beaten
  • 1 Teas. good salt
  • 1/2 Teas. cracked pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp. Original Ghee
  • 1 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 Cup half and half - or whole milk
  • 1 Teas. freshly ground nutmeg

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Grate corn, and add salt, pepper, maple syrup, flour and melted ghee.
  • Add beaten eggs and milk.
  • Stir well and pour into a greased (with ghee) 9x9 pan OR individual baking cups.
  • Bake at 350F for 45minutes or longer. Pudding is done when inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  • Drizzle with a little maple syrup or honey prior to serving.

Notes

Any of our ghee products can replace the Original Ghee. Honey Ghee and Maple Cinnamon Ghee give it a sweeter flavor.  Sriracha Ghee gives it a little heat while Black Garlic Ghee brings home a mild, savory garlic flavor.
If using Honey Ghee, substitute the maple syrup with honey.
You may pour this into a 9 x 9 baking dish or individual cups as a special treat.
Using a nutmeg grinder with a crank is so helpful. Grinding whole nutmeg produces a far better flavor.

Freshly Roasted Tomato Soup

Freshly Roasted Tomato Soup

Serves 4-6.

Ingredients
  

  • 2.5 lbs Roma tomatoes - cut in half lengthwise
  • 4 Tbsp. Simply Ghee Original - melted
  • 1 Tbsp. maple syrup - or honey
  • 1.5 Tbsp. Tbs of BBQ mesquite seasoning - salt-free
  • 1 Medium sweet onion - chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic - minced
  • 1 dash minced red pepper flakes to taste - or use cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup fresh basil - julienned strips
  • 1 can diced tomatoes -15 oz
  • 4 cup chicken stock - or vegetable stock
  • unrefined salt and freshly cracked pepper - to taste

Instructions
 

  • To roast the tomatoes:
  • Preheat the oven to 400F. Spread the tomatoes on a baking sheet. In a bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of melted ghee, maple syrup and BBQ mesquite seasoning and blend together. Pour mixture over the tomatoes – cut sides facing up. Season with salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste and roast in the oven at 400F for about 45 minutes.
  • In a large stock pot, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of ghee over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until tender – about 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the canned tomatoes, fresh basil and broth. Stir in the oven roasted tomatoes and simmer over medium-low heat for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and in the stockpot, puree the mixture with an immersion blender or transfer the soup to a food processor or blender to blend. Be careful because the soup is very hot. Remember to start blending at a slow speed and increase gradually. The soup should be smooth with some tomato chunks. Season with salt and pepper to taste. You can prepare the soup to this point and refrigerate. When ready to serve, bring to a slow simmer over medium heat. Before serving, stir in 1 tablespoon of ghee. YUM!
