Nut and seed butters taste perfect on bread, flax crackers and used as a dip for fruit or vegetables. But there is more to them than that.

Here are our three favourite nut butter recipes:


Spring Green Parcels with chilli soy sauce

Large spring green leaves

Carley’s Raw Mixed seed butter

Avocado – chopped into chunks


Spring onions – sliced


For sauce:

Tablespoon tamari

Teaspoon agave

Chopped chillies

Chopped spring onions

Tablespoon rapeseed oil


Spread the seed butter over the whole leaf – as thick as you want. Fill the middle with the other ingredients. Fold the leaf into a parcel.

For the sauce mix all ingredients apart from oil in a small bowl. Once all are combined, add the rapeseed oil.

Nice with salad and quinoa.


Raw Pumpkin seed dressing

Tablespoon Carley’s Raw Pumpkin Seed butter

Teaspoon French mustard

Apple cider vinegar

Himalayan Crystal Sea salt


Cold pressed Olive Oil


Mix the mustard, salt, pepper and vinegar together.

Add the pumpkin seed butter and mix - if it doesn’t mix well, don’t worry, it’s time to add the olive oil which will help sort it all out.

Great on all green salads, steamed vegetables, seaweed salads or as a dip for bread.

4 medjool dates –chopped up

Aubergine Salad

This warm salad is ideal as a side to fresh fish, lamb or falafels. It also works as a main for lunch (take it in your lunch box for an office lunch) – and is especially delicious with St John’s brown sourdough bread dipped in olive oil or Clearspring Sundried Tomato and Herb Oatcakes.  

Serves 2 

1 – 2 aubergines

4 spring onions

Packet of mint leaves

Packet of flat leaf parsley

Two handfuls of cherry tomato

2 handfuls of raw pine nuts 

2 handfuls of raw walnuts

2 punnets of cress

2 table spoons of apple cider vinegar (or the juice of one lemon)

4 table spoons of extra virgin Olive oil – with more to roast the aubergines with


Cut the aubergines into cubes (as large or small as you want – but not too small as they will disintegrate)

Put all the aubergines into a baking tray, season with pepper and add loads of extra virgin olive oil – this lovely Mediterranean vegetable absorbs lots of oil, so be generous.  

Pop in a hot oven for about 20-40 minuets or until the aubergines are soft all the way through.

Meanwhile chop the tomatoes in half, finely slice the spring onions, cut the cress away from the soil it is kept in, finely chop the parsley and stalks, and remove the mint from the stalks.  

Combine all the salad ingredients and the pine nuts and walnuts into a bowl – then season with pepper.

When the aubergines are cooked, add them to the salad – stirring until everything is mixed in well. 

Finally add the vinegar or lemon juice and then the olive oil, 

One final quick stir and everything is ready. ……
