Peanut Recipes

Peanuts are a crowd-pleasing favorite, and bring distinct flavor and crunch to everything from noodle salads to peanut sauces. They're interesting because, although they are technically a legume, they store fat, rather than starches like most beans. This is what makes them so nutlike. Like other legumes, they are high in protein. I do my best to source organic peanuts whenever possible.

At The Studio: Shredded Un-Chicken Salad

A vegetarian take on what I think of as the Chinese chicken salad of my youth. I love so many components of that salad, the crunchy peanuts, the thin, garlicky sweet dressing, the green notes of cilantro and scallions in there with the salad and cabbage. In place of shredded chicken, I'll pack a hard-boiled egg, or a bit of pan-fried tofu to make a one bowl meal of things.

A Good Shredded Salad

One of the things I love about having a work studio is our location. It means that most days, at one point or another, I find myself standing in the middle of San Francisco's Chinatown. This is a shredded salad inspired by the neighborhood - lots of cabbage and scallions, tossed with soy sauce, honey, and cilantro, and amount of crunch toasted peanuts, and celery.

Pluot Summer Salad

There are times when I feel compelled to snap fruit salads out of dessert-land and lead them over to the savory side of the spectrum. - this salad is pluot based, with toasted ginger, garlic, and shallots. It is drizzled with a simple lime soy sauce dressing, and is generously flecked with herbs - in this case, mint, basil, and cilantro.
