Healthy Lunch Recipes
Let's face facts, healthy lunch recipes are a vital part of any balanced diet. While many say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, few of us would be where we are today if it weren't for the midday feed. And did you know Peanut Hottie makes for an irresistible addition to a number of delicious healthy lunch recipes?
You'll find a number of these in our main recipes pages. For example, the vegetable and tofu peanut satay stir fry, or toasted tofu skewers with peanut dip. Two examples of incredibly great tasting healthy lunch ideas involving Peanut Hottie, this list could go on much longer.
Our delicious powder proves so versatile in low fat, high nutrition cooking because it's made from 91.4% peanut flour. So, it's an all-natural derivative of pure peanuts, which pack a real punch in the wellness stakes. Not only are nuts a great source of fibre, they also offer additional protein, potassium and zinc and are low in saturated fat and cholesterol.
The breadth of what's possible when cooking with Peanut Hottie is just as impressive. Dishes from across a world of kitchens and cuisines can easily be enhanced with our product. And that's just as true if you're using peanut as a foundation flavour or simply looking to build depth and richness into an already-tantalising taste.
Keen to show just how creative we can all be, we've included one of our perennial favourite Peanut Hottie healthy lunch recipes below, which is simple to prepare, and utterly divine.
Healthy Lunch Recipe:
Cluckless Chicken Lettuce Wraps
The clue is in the title — these vegan-friendly alternatives to the perennially popular chicken wrap are so easy to make you would feel guilty devouring so many if they weren't also so good for you. Here's what's needed:
1 cup light coconut milk
3 tablespoons Peanut Hottie Original
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons fresh ginger, sliced
1 tablespoon honey
1 garlic clove
Crushed red chilli pepper flakes
20 large lettuce leaves
300g tofu, drained and patted dry, sliced into finger-sized pieces
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 small cucumber, thinly sliced
20-25 Thai basil leaves (can be substituted for regular basil)
Blend the coconut milk, Peanut Hottie Original, soy sauce, honey, fresh finger, garlic and red pepper flakes together, and set aside.
Lay out the lettuce leaves, placing several slices of tofu in the middle, with red pepper and cucumber laid on top, finished with one or two Thai basil leaves. Fold the lettuce into a wrap ensuring all ingredients are contained. Distribute the dipping sauce into smaller serving bowls — enough for one per person — and start dipping.
A great aspect of this is the fact you can make a batch of dipping sauce and keep in the fridge for up to three days and it should keep, meaning our cluckless chicken lettuce wraps can also be prepped in advance and eaten as a healthy form of fast food.
