Our latest featured recipe collection is here! Peanut recipes.
Why, you ask?
Well, these days, our family is always on the prowl for ways to make healthier and more conscious decisions when it comes to what we eat. We always make sure to incorporate our dark leafy greens, olive oil, and avocados, but we recently found out that peanuts are also a superfood. Who knew?
When you reach for peanuts, research has shown that you may help offset your risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. Keep in mind that a serving is about a handful of peanuts or 2 tablespoons of peanut butter and that everything is best in moderation of course. But overall, peanuts make for an affordable superfood that we can all incorporate into our daily routine.
It’s a good thing we love to use peanuts in our cooking and baking (my mom makes these wok roasted peanuts––like the kind that you get at a Cantonese restaurant with your tea before a meal––that she and Sarah can polish off at scary speeds). And while we do also enjoy a nostalgic peanut butter and jelly sandwich now and then, there are so many interesting ways to use peanuts. These little nutty, buttery gems can be featured in savory or sweet peanut recipes, and Asian cooks in particular love using peanuts in a range of dishes from kung pao to pad thai.
That said, we’ve rounded up a list of some of our favorite peanut recipes, both savory and sweet, to help you find new ways to use peanuts and get a dose of this tasty superfood.
