Pumpkin Seed Spread

Laurie Gauguin | Delicious Living

Makes 1 cup / This orange-scented spread is a festive, flavorful alternative to butter, with zero saturated fat. It's fantastic on the Quinoa-Corn Muffins.

  1. Boil or steam carrot until very tender. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Add pumpkin seeds and toast, stirring or shaking pan frequently, until seeds turn from green to brown and begin to pop. Pour seeds into a food processor. Let cool briefly until merely warm. Process seeds into a fine powder.
  3. Add carrot, tofu, honey, salt, orange zest, and cinnamon to food processor. Process until smooth, about 2 minutes, scraping sides of bowl a few times.
