Making almond milk has left me with cups of almond meal. I have not found any recipes for that yet.



Anyone have a good recipe or two for almond meal?



And here is my milk recipe.



1c almond soaked overnight.

puree in 3 cups water.

strain.

chill.

drink.



Still needs something, I will try some vanilla bean when I find it.



First time I made it I thought I should taste it and I 'accidentally' drank the whole thing in about 30 seconds.

I make crackers with the leftover meal.



Add a handfull of parsley, a few lg carrots, a few stalks celery to your food processor & pulse chop them so it's chopped really fine but not total mush.



Mix in a bowl with ground (in coffee grinder) flax & sunflower seeds, maybe a cup of each. I just eyeball stuff I never measure lol.



Add a dash of sea salt and a heaping tsp curry powder. Mix by hand with some water, not too much so it's all runny though.



Dry until you are able to flip them, use a pizza slicer to cut into crackers then flip and dry till crispy.



These go really well with mexican food for some reason.

Do you use anything to sweeten your almond milk? I use either agave or medjool dates. Maca extreme goes REALLY well in almond milk I just found out! Tastes just like drinking marzipan! I use vanilla bean too.

I like to soak dates and sometimes apricot or mango to sweeten almond milk with.



As far as the meal is concerned, I like to use it to make crusts for raw pies.



Its good to make a breakfast cereal too.

You can also add it in to whatever smoothies you make.



Apart from food, I've seen where someone mentioned they made a facial scrub with almond meal. Who knows.

A simple recipe for a "cheesy" spread (quantities depend on how much almond meal you've got and your tastes):



leftover almond meal from making almond milk

Little bit of water

Olive oil

Squeeze of lemon juice

Thyme/oreganon/any dried or fresh herbs you like

Salt

White pepper



Blend all in food processor till smooth and allow to cool in the fridge for a while. Makes a flavourful spread, vaguely reminiscent of cream cheese or ricotta.
