INGREDIENTS

4 dried pasilla chiles

4 dried ancho chiles

10 dried chiles de árbol

1 1/4 cup avocado oil

6 cloves garlic

1 cup raw almonds

3 tablespoons JUSTIN’S® Cinnamon Almond Butter

Kosher salt, to taste

DIRECTIONS

Wearing plastic gloves, remove the seeds from the pasilla and ancho chiles. Discard.

In a large saucepan over medium heat, heat the oil. Cook the garlic until golden brown, 6-7 minutes. Remove cloves from oil and discard all but one clove. Add almonds to oil and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove almonds and set aside in small bowl. In 2-3 batches, cook the chiles for 30-60 seconds until slightly puffed, then transferring to a bowl. Remove oil from heat and cool slightly.

In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the almonds and chiles until coarsely chopped. Pulse in the almond butter. With the food processor running, gently pour in the oil and continue to process 30 seconds more. Season with salt to taste.

Serve salsa macha with tacos, eggs, tostadas, roasted vegetables and more.

Plant-Based Peanut Butter Blueberry Cheesecakes (close up) placed on a white background

It seems unfair that my plant-based friends and family miss out on cheesecakes. And I won’t stand for unfairness! So, I created a Plant-Based Cheesecake recipe that’s easy to prepare and is just as sweet, creamy, and satisfying as your favorite restaurant’s version. Cheesecake for everyone!

Roasted Almond Butter and Maple Glazed Tofu, Squash and Brussels in a close up shot laid on white parchment paper

Roasted Almond Butter and Maple Glazed Tofu, Squash, and Brussels is a genuine triple threat. This dinner delight is vegetarian, full of flavor, and cooks in one pan. It doesn’t take your whole day to prepare either. At any given moment, you are thirty minutes of marinating, a few minutes of tossing ingredients together, and thirty minutes of hands-off roasting away from enjoying a flavor-packed, wholesome, vegetarian meal. Seriously. There’s really no downside to this recipe.
