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.
