Make this seed pâté when you want something in your refrigerator that can easily assimilate into just about any snack or meal. The base is made of seeds that have been soaked for a stretch and then blended into a creamy, full-bodied puree. In this instance I've worked in fresh herbs and garlic, but it's not hard to imagine many different ways to approach the base. Finish seed pate with a bit of miso - for flavor, seasoning, and easy nutritional boost.
Inspired by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's soda bread recipe, this version is made with a blend of spelt flour and all-purpose flour. The dough is littered with seeds - sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, flax seeds, and fennel seeds. It bakes into a perfect, rustic, crusty loaf of bread with relatively little effort.
Make crispy crackers from wonton wrappers. The great thing about this cracker recipe is the way the wrappers provide a quick and easy blank canvas to experiment with - sweet or savory, spicy or seedy - there are countless directions to explore.
