Vegan pumpkin seed spread

Merry Christmas to you! I hope you’re sharing your holidays with loved ones and spending your time doing activities you love as well.

Here’s a spread that will go well on a cheese plate and can be enjoyed by people with nut allergies. Aside from the time required to soak the pumpkin seeds, it only takes a minute to make. Unlike the last dip, this spread is kid-approved.

Savoury pumpkin seed spread

  • 1 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1 Tbsp dehydrated onions
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 3 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tbsp miso paste
  • 1/2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • freshly ground pepper (to taste)

Combine the pumpkin seeds, onion and water in a bowl and cover it. Let it soak for at least 30 minutes.

Pour the soaked seeds (with the water and onion), nutritional yeast, miso and vinegar into a high speed blender and blend on high until smooth. Top with freshly ground pepper, if desired.

Serve with crackers or fresh bread. Enjoy! Happy holidays!

  1. This looks great! Someone gifted me a big bag of pepitas for Christmas and I’ve been pondering over wha tot do with them. This looks like a nice start! Can I substitute a couple teaspoons of onion granules for the dehydrated onion?
