Are you a fan of nibs? You know, those roasted cacao beans whose humble, rugged appearance belies an exemplary flavor profile that can be likened to nut-meets-unsweetened chocolate? Their flavor runs the gamut from banana to coffee to olive! If you haven't yet played with nibs in your kitchen, the holidays are a great time to start. If you already know and love our roasted cacao nibs as a snack or in cookies or other sweets, this Thanksgiving can be an opportunity to explore the savory side of nibs.
Skeptical that chocolate has a savory side? The sweet, earthy, and nutty flavors of the squash, nibs, and browned butter sing together in such delicious harmony, we think this recipe will make you a convert. You can find nibs on the shelves at Whole Foods, PCC, and food co-ops nationally. We also offer nibs on our web shop and in bulk at our retail store.
