Spread your bread, and get your omega 3
A tasty spread that´s really easy to make, and that will provide you with the daily recommended shot of omega 3 fatty acids. 100 g of walnuts that´s used in this recipe, contains as much as 2776 mg omgea 3 fatty acids (compared to salmon, that has about 2506 mg / 100 g). The recommended daily dose is obtained by dividing this portion of spread by half. The same amount will also give you about 100 mg of vitamin C. Spread on, and top up with some alfalfa, fresh thyme and ruccola.
If you for some reason don´t tolerate nuts, you can replace the walnuts with boiled chickpeas. It will be something else entirely, both in taste and nutrition wise, but will make a tasty spread for your bread.
1 red bell pepper
100 g walnuts
1 dl extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
Season with sea salt
Mix all ingredients until smooth butter consistency in a blender. Add a little chilli or cayenne pepper for a slightly stronger taste. If you think walnuts are a little bitter, you can replace half the walnuts with cashew nuts.
1 rød paprika
100 g valnøtter
1 dl extra virgin oliven olje eller rapsolje
1 ss ferskpresset sitronsaft
Smak til med havsalt
Miks alle ingredienser til en jevn smørkonsistens i en blender. Tilsett litt chilli eller cayennepepper for en sterkere smak. Hvis du syns valnøtter blir litt bittert kan du bytte ut halvparten av valnøttene med cashew nøtter.
