Peanut Soup, Sauce and Salad

I love peanuts so do my best to buy organic ones or from the Indian market.  I do not eat them raw, but roast them with spices.  I then use these in the recipes below.

Peanut Soup (or dipping sauce)

1/2 cup organic peanut butter

1/4 cup dates

1-2 cups of pure water (depending on if you want to make this a soup or a dipping sauce)

1-2 pieces of seaweed (or 2 tablespoons of Miso; or 1/4 cups seaweed .. to taste)

1/4 cup finely chopped peanuts

Blend the first four ingredients until smooth.  Sprinkle with finely chopped peanuts and enjoy!

Peanut Sauce (or soup)

1 cup organic peanut butter

2-3 tablespoons honey (or other sweetener)

1-2 cups water (less for sauce, more for soup)

2-3 tablespoons Miso (or soy sauce, or seaweed .. as above)

1 clove garlic

5-8 sprigs cilantro

optional: cayenne

Blend all until smooth.  Great for dippping veggies!

Carrot and Peanut Salad

3-4 organic Carrots, shredded (I use a potato peeler)

1 tablespoon Coconut Oil

1 teaspoon Black Mustard Seeds

1 green chili, shredded

1 tablespoon sweetener

5-8 Curry Leaves (or 1 Tablespoon curry powder)

juice of one Lime

1/2 cup roasted Peanuts, finely chopped

Heat Coconut Oil in cast iron pan.  Saute Black Mustard Seeds, shredded chili, and the curry leaves (or powder) .. just to wilting.  Pour the spice mix and Lime Juice over shredded Carrots, add roasted/chopped Peanuts, mix well and its ready to eat!

Iya, Inity and Ital!
