2 tbsp Alison’s Pantry Chia Seeds

Ice cream cones



  1. Grind all the nuts together in a food processor. Add chocolate and pulse to grind. Add remaining ingredients, except roast almonds, until combined and the mixture clumps together.

Satay sauce

A punchy satay sauce is the key to tying together all the elements of this Gado Gado platter. Using homemade peanut butter makes this particularly delicious and really satisfying to make. It can be nice to serve the sauce topped with fried shallots, sliced spring onions and a little extra chill.

½ cup peanut butter½ cup coconut cream
1 tablespoon soy sauce or tamari
1 rounded teaspoon finely grated ginger
1 teaspoon brown or coconut sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Dried chilli flakes to taste

Place all the satay sauce ingredients into a bowl and mix together until completely blended. Taste and add chilli flakes as desired. Add a splash of boiling water if it’s too thick.



Homemade Peanut Butter

Making your own peanut butter is incredibly simple and very satisfying.

2 cups Alison’s Pantry roasted unsalted peanuts
Sea salt to taste

  1. Place the peanuts in a food processor or powerful blender. Blend until the peanut butter is silky smooth or to your preferred consistency. This will take 3-10 minutes depending on your machine and you may need to give the blender / food processor a few breaks to avoid overheating. The mixture will start as crumbs and then become gluggy. Keep going (scraping the sides as needed) and it will eventually become a smooth runny nut butter.
  2. Add salt to taste once completed.
  3. Store in an airtight jar.

Toasted Almonds with Paprika, Rosemary & Olive Oil
To celebrate National Nut Day we teamed up with Eleanor Ozich to create a delicious recipe for you to try. Sweet, salty and crisp, these paprika and rosemary toasted almonds are all kinds of wonderful. It goes without saying, that nuts love salt. It brings out their delicate sweetness and enhances flavour, a nice quality sea salt makes all the difference in this recipe. You could enjoy the almonds simply as they are, or pop in to a glass jar, and gift to a nut-loving friend. Please be warned, these are tempting, and very addictive!

3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 cups Alison’s Pantry Natural Almonds
a large handful of rosemary leaves
3 tablespoons maple syrup or honey
2 tbsp smoked paprika

1 teaspoon flaky sea salt


  1. Place a sheet of baking paper on a baking tray or wooden chopping board and set aside.
  2. Warm the olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the nuts and rosemary and stir until the nuts are well coated, take care as the oil tends to spit a little. Keep stirring for about 2 minutes, then reduce the heat to low.
  3. Add the maple syrup and smoked paprika, and continue to stir for a further minute.
  4. Sprinkle the salt over the nuts, then immediately remove the pan from the heat.
  5. Using a metal spoon or spatula, transfer the nuts to the baking paper, spreading them out in a single layer to allow the syrup to harden.
  6. Leave to cool completely, then store in an airtight container or jar.
  7. Makes a medium sized jar full.
The nuts will keep in a cool dark place for 2–3 weeks.

Chicken Salad with Nuts & Seeds salad_4132
(Serves 6)

You can change the combination of veggies to whatever you enjoy most but there are a few tips for assembling the mason jars that are worth following.


4 chicken breasts
1 small onion, roughly chopped
1 bay leaf
2 red and yellow peppers, thickly diced
4 sticks celery, sliced
1 cup Kalamata olives, pitted and halved
1 cup Alison’s Pantry Cranberry Trio
¾ cup Alison’s Pantry Pumpkin Seeds
200g feta cheese, diced
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 fancy green lettuce, leaves torn

Pistachio & Avocado Dressing:
2 avocados, flesh chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
Juice of 1 lemon
½ cup parsley leaves
¼ cup olive oil
½ cup Alison’s Pantry Shelled Pistachios
¼ cup cold water
Salt and freshly ground black pepper



  1. Poach chicken breasts by placing in a saucepan with onion and bay leaf. Cover with cold water and bring to a simmer. Simmer very gently for 10 minutes then remove to cool in the liquid. Chill and dice once cold.
  2. To make the dressing, place all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and pulse to combine until smooth. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.


To assemble

  1. Start with the dressing at the bottom of the jar, dividing it evenly. Add hard veggies first, like peppers, celery and also olives.

Next add the chicken, Cranberry Trio, seeds and feta cheese. Softer veggies like tomatoes go next. Finish with delicate things like lettuce on top.

  1. Try not to overfill the jars, allow room for all ingredients to be coated with the dressing later. Cover jars with lids and refrigerate. Serve with a fork tied to the jars with twine or ribbon. Once ready to eat, shake the jar vigorously to dress salad.

Pinch chilli powder
1 tsp smoked paprika
