Aside from the obvious satay recipes, anyone have ideas for peanut butter? Maybe recipes for savory things, as opposed to peanut butter cookies, which I don't need to be eating...? I have 5 lbs of the stuff. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

this might be too sweet, but my aunt makes amazing protien tarts using frozen tart shells (i'd make my own then freeze them) and filling them with blended tofu and peanut butter. they taste creamy & peanut butter-y, but not sweet, and they have one heck of a lot of protien.

1/2 cup peanut butter<br>
1/2 cup water<br>
1-2 T soy sauce or 1 t salt<br>
1/4 cup raw apple cider vinegar<br>
1 canned chipotle in adobo sauce<br>
1 clove garlic<br><br>
Put it all in the food processor and blend until smooth.

I've got some squash puree in the freezer, I could do a butternut and nut butter soup. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I put some in a chicken stew last night, but overdid the peanut butter. Live and learn. Thanks for the ideas.

I do a peanut kale dish that DH and I like a lot... blanch some kale, drain, then mix together peanut butter, a splash of soy sauce & some rice wine vinegar (and a touch of honey if you want) then pour that over the kale and toss to coat. Yummy! Crunchy peanut butter works best.

I like to put peanut butter in my smoothies with yogurt and a banana and maybe some berries.<br><br>
Sweet, but not in an unhealthy way.<br><br>
I also like to cut up an apple and dip it in pb.

A lot of Asian and African dishes use PB as a base for sauces. It is very yummy. DH does all the Asian cooking around here, but I'm sure if you googled you could come up with some good stuff with 'peanut sauce'.

Right now our favorite dish is something called Baked beans with Nigerian seasonings. It has curry powder and peanut butter in it. It's only a tablespoon or two of peanut butter but it is so good, you will want to make it all the time! If you are interested lmk, I will post the recipe.

Yes, please! It sounds good!<br><br>
I recycled my chicken with PB with some spaghetti noodles, and it turned out very well. It was a huge hit with His Highness. Actually, upon first sampling it, Sprogly said, "This is...<i>interesting</i>..." very brightly, much in the manner of a society matron who wishes not to offend. Then he wolfed it down. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
So, peanut noodles will probably become a regular item. It needed something spicy, but I have to hold back with that stuff, anyway.<br><br>
Thanks for all the good ideas.

I used to make a chicken concoction that had OJ, salsa, and pb. You cut up some boneless skinless breasts. Mixed it in the sauce and served it over spaghetti. I've lost the recipe though. I think it was equal parts oj and pb and a little more salsa.<br><br>
Also broccoli ramen salad. My fav summer time lunch.<br><br>
Ramen Noodle Salad<br><br>
1 pkg brocolli-coleslaw (found in the same area where they have<br>
packaged lettuce, etc)<br>
1 pkg ramen-type noodles<br>
1/4 cup sunflower seeds<br><br>
Break ramen noodles into small pieces. Put season packet aside and mix<br>
all the above ingredients. (Other optional ingredients you can use are<br>
1 3/4 slivered almonds, 4-5 green onions, 1 red pepper, 1 can drained<br>
water chestnuts, raisins.)<br><br>
Mix the following in a separate bowl:<br><br>
1/2 cup water<br>
1/4 cup cider vinegar<br>
1/3 cup sugar<br>
1/8 tsp salt<br>
1/8 tsp pepper<br>
1 tbs peanut butter (optional, but it gives it a great Thai taste)<br>
After mixing, add the dry seasoning packet. Toss mixture over the<br>
noodles and serve!
