Peanut Butter

I love peanut butter, but PB by itself on a sandwich by itself can be boring, and PB&Js are a little sweet. Here are some ways I use PB when I'm hungry and want something savory and interesting:
  • With kale, on a sandwich. It also tastes really good if you add a slab of plain tofu, but if you're wrapping the sandwich to go then press some water out of the tofu or you'll have a soggy sandwich.
  • Spread on nori, with sprouts and other veggies (carrot, cucumber).
  • In a dressing on salad or cabbage slaw. I mix the PB with a little vinegar (rice wine vinegar would be appropriate, but regular distilled white will do the trick), a little sesame oil, garlic powder, ginger powder, paprika or cayenne, and salt. If it's too thick you can add water. If the flavor is too strong you can add water, then add corn starch (a teeny bit at a time) to thicken.
What are some ways you use PB?

  1. Interesting. I never thought to try PB with kale and tofu. Sounds like something fun to try :)
