Roasted ground wattleseed has a beautiful nutty, mild coffee flavour and aroma that allows for a diverse use in the kitchen.
It lends itself well to both sweet and savoury dishes as described below.
- Delicious when used to flavour chocolate, cheesecakes, icecream or other desserts.
- Try using it in a satay sauce!
- A great savoury spice to use in casseroles, sprinkled over roast meat or vegetables
- It can be mixed with regular coffee or chai for a flavour boost.
- Aboriginals used wattle seed to make a type of flour.
- And on that note, it is perfect for baking. We often throw in a teaspoon of wattleseed and mountain pepper leaf or kunzea every time we bake a loaf of bread.
