Baobalicious

Baobab Powder

I recently got my hands on some baobab.  I always get excited trying out a new superfood, thinking about how I can add it in to my already supershero-esque diet.  Baobab is actually an African tree which grows lush green fruits inside of which are a pale powder that is super sweet and tangy.  It’s a powerhouse of nutrtition including potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium,  vitamin C, and B vitamins. It’s a fantastic antioxidant, has anti-inflammatory properties, and is an effective prebiotic.  What more can you ask for?

Baobab certainly doesn't disappoint.  It's very reminiscent of camu camu with it's fruity sweet and tangy flavour but with a lot more depth.  What's more exciting though is just how versatile a product it is.  Of course it fits in well with smoothies and nut milks (goes really well with purple corn and berries) but also chocolate recipes and savoury dishes!

I got a wonderful recipe courtesy of one Kate Magic and the lovely people at www.baobabsuperfruit.com which I enjoyed over some spiralised courgette.

Kate’s terrific Baobab sauce

  • 3 tomatoes
  • 1 red pepper
  • 6 sundried tomatoes
  • 2 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 TBSP apple cider vinegar (didn’t have any, used lemon juice)
  • 1 tsp tamari
  • 1/4 red onion
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 red chilli pepper
  • 1 TBSP baobab

You can blend it all together but I used the food processor and it worked a wee treat!  Yummy!
