If you’re looking for a fresh way to pack more nutritious protein into your family’s meals, consider cooking with a plant-based protein such as peanuts or peanut butter.
You may think of peanuts as a tasty and convenient snack food – and they are – but peanuts and peanut butter are actually part of the protein food group.
In fact, peanuts and peanut butter have more protein than any other nut and are rich in healthy oils, fibre, vitamins, minerals and phyto-nutrients. Dietary guidelines have suggested at least two servings of peanuts a week as part of a healthy diet.
The family can enjoy these easy dishes that show how simple it is to create delicious meals using peanuts, in everything from sides to main dishes to desserts.
