Unlocking the Nutritional Power of Seeds

Seeds As A Nutritional Topper Aisling Larkin modern lifestyle food

A Tiny Superfood Packed with Big Benefits

Seeds can be a great addition to lots of dishes, from my Creamy Mushroom Soup to salads and smoothies, adding texture and a subtle nutty flavour. Here are a few seed options that work well as toppings:

  • Pumpkin Seeds: Pumpkin seeds (also called pepitas) are a great source of protein, healthy fats, and minerals like magnesium and zinc. They have a slightly sweet and nutty flavour that can complement the earthy mushroom soup.
  • Sunflower Seeds: Sunflower seeds are also a good source of protein and healthy fats, as well as vitamin E and other nutrients. They have a mild, nutty flavour. 
  • Sesame Seeds: Sesame seeds have a nutty and slightly sweet flavour that can add depth to the soup. They’re also a good source of fibre, protein, and healthy fats.
  • Flaxseeds: Flaxseeds are a great source of fibre, omega-3 fatty acids, and other nutrients. They have a slightly nutty flavour and a crunchy texture.

To use seeds as a topping, you can toast them in a dry skillet until they’re lightly golden and fragrant, then sprinkle them on top of the soup just before serving.
