I love peanuts.. no I mean I really love peanuts!
Peanuts are also known as earthnuts, goobers, goober peas, pindas, jack nuts, pinders, manila nuts and monkey nuts. Cool names don't ya think?
I discovered how much I loved peanuts as I followed the BTD and was glad to see that diamond on my GTD list. I was buying whole peanuts in the supermarket that were not organic, they gave me indigestion. I suspect something about the oil that was on them did not agree with me. The organic ones do not give me indigestion.
I eat them just about everyday, even if it is just a handful.
One of the things I like to make is Peanut Sauce Gado-Gado. I fry tempeh in ghee till lightly brown and dip it in the sauce, I put the sauce on top of rice or quinoa, I add it to tofu (even if the tofu has sauce already).
Cook Right for Your Type, page 330.
Here is the recipe:
1 clove of Garlic crushed and peeled
2 scallions (can use a bit of onion, or omit it)
1/4 cup of cilantro or parsley
1/2 cup of peanut butter
1/4 cup of Tamari (wheat free)
2 TBS lemon juice
1/2 cup of water more will give you a thinner sauce.
1 tsp fresh ginger (you can use ground, fresh is always better)
I just put everything except the water into the food processor and pulse till blended.
Once it is blended I add the water a little at a time till I get the right consistency.
If you haven't made this yet you are missing out on something delicious.
I encourage you to give it a try this week.
