Tiger Nut Horchata
During a trip to Spain I was introduced to horchata made from tiger nuts. I’m familiar with the rice based version of horchata that’s sold in the US but didn’t realize that there were other versions of horchata until recently.
Since becoming fascinated with tiger nuts for about a year now I was excited to try tiger nut horchata. My first experience of tiger nut horchata was love at first sip. It was creamy, nutty and had a slight vanilla flavor.
I was sad when it was time to leave Spain and tiger nut horchata. While flying home I thought why can’t I have tiger nut horchata at home: it couldn’t be that hard to make. After getting home I soaked a cup of tiger nuts for 48 hours and made a basic nut milk and it was very much like the tiger nut horchata I had in Spain.
Nourish your gut with this tiger nut horchata and see if you don’t fall in love.
