Brazil Nut Topping

I have been using this Brazil Nut Topping on pasta, pizza, and salads. It is reminiscent of parmesan, but tastes more earthy. Furthermore, Brazil nuts are one of the richest sources of selenium, an essential mineral with antioxidant properties. They also contain plenty protein and healthful fats. The addition of fresh garlic to this mixture makes this topping fragrant and versatile, perfect to perk up a pasta dish or add crunch to a salad. Try it and let me know what you think!

I love putting this Brazil Nut Topping on this Lasagna alla Karina and this Easy Homemade Pizza.

Zucchini Noodles with Avocado and Mint Sauce

Zucchini Noodles with Avocado and Mint Sauce
Zucchini Noodles with Avocado and Mint Sauce

The toasted pistachios in this Zucchini Noodles with Avocado and Mint Sauce add a nice crunchiness to the zucchini, and the avocado makes it so creamy, it’s almost a dream. Just make sure to prepare the avocado sauce close to serving time, to avoid it turning brown. You can, however, prepare your zucchinis ahead of time, and keep them refrigerated.
