tigernut bread

OuR Team’s Toast Game is already pretty strong (especially when avocados are involved), but this this turmeric-spiked tigernut bread amps things up to a whole new level we’re excited to explore. Nuts and seeds make it possible to bake without grains – fun and interesting if you’re a seasoned baker, and even more incredible if you’re gluten-free. Tigernut, flax, sunflower and pumpkin seeds all pack in protein and minerals without yeast or sugar, making this the cleanest, tastiest toast base ever!

Vegan-minded master chef, Meredith Baird, served up this rich loaf bread during our cooking class and luncheon with Jenni Kayne last spring. We’ve whipped it up several times over the summer and thought these unusual ingredients deserved another day in the sun. With crispy radish slices and a creamy tahini spring pea pureé this toast could make any avocado green with envy…
