I can’t claim the credit for this delicious dish but I can re-make it like a total food-nerd.
I had this once at a cafe in Melbourne and for the life of me I couldn’t have imagined a weirder combination of foods when scouring the menu. I remember the dish being full of fresh herbs, fragrant oils and…something else I just cant put my finger on. This simple version is now my favourite way of eating freshly ground peanut butter and every bite reminds me of Melbourne’s eccentric brunch culture…oh how I miss it!
For the best nut butter visit your nearest health food store and hopefully they will have their own nut press but if not they will know someone who does or stock real nut butters (free from preservatives and homogenised oils) for you to choose from. It’s important to choose quality over quantity when it comes to nuts and nut butters as all those great heathy fats and minerals only do you good if the product is fresh and free from processing. Nuts are a great source of healthy fats and can really kick the craving for sugary foods and, alongside a bit of added protein, can keep you fuller for longer (often enough to supplement for meat, which is a great thing if your trying to eat more consciously). NB: To test this theory next time you make a satay stir-fry, go veggie and you let me know if your unsatisfied…doubt it! YUM.
