These days, home-cooked meals are about making use of what's already in your pantry to create the most delicious and nutritious dishes possible. Here are some of our favorite recipes that require a minimal number of ingredients and ingredients you likely already have in your pantry.
Sprouted Mixed Seeds Butter
Mixed seeds butter requires just one ingredient—our Sprouted Mixed Seeds! When the sprouted sunflower, watermelon, and pumpkin seeds are blended together, they make a creamy, complex butter that’s a nutritious addition to toast, crackers, veggie plates, desserts, and more.
Mediterranean Quinoa Salad
This salad is one of our favorite recipes we’ve ever developed. While you may not have every ingredient the recipe calls for, you probably have *most* on hand already. This tasty dish relies on many pantry staples like quinoa, olives, dates, vegetable broth, and red onions to create a well-rounded flavor profile. If you don’t have fresh herbs, don’t stress—get creative with the dried spices in your pantry.
Sprouted Seed & Cheese Crisps
If you have cheese and Sprouted Seeds, you can make this super savory, protein-dense snack! Just beware—these crispy, crunchy bites are so good, they’ll be gone before you know it. :-)
Swirled Chocolate Bark
Our three-ingredient chocolate bark is a super simple treat that will surely sweeten up your day. All you need is semi-sweet chocolate, white chocolate, and Go Raw Sprouted Pumpkin Seeds to make this sweet and salty, crowd-pleasing dessert.
Carrot Top Pesto
Before you throw your carrot tops in the compost, hang tight! Not only are the greens loaded with vitamins and nutrients, but they can also be made into a delicious pesto if you don’t have fresh basil on hand.
