How to Make Homemade Peanut Butter That's SO Much Better Than Store-Bought Stuff
Skip the store-bought stuff once and for all. Learning how to make peanut butter at home has never been easier!
Sometimes we’re cool with eating the same thing for lunch every day. (We see you, kale salad.) Other times we need a little more excitement. That’s where this colorful peanut noodle jar recipe from Megan Hallett and Nicole Jardim’s cookbook,, comes in.
“Among the business of everyday life, it’s easy to become a little bit robotic with our on-the-go meals,” Hallett writes. “However, I don’t think anything you eat should be a last resort or purely for convenience. Every meal should excite you and nourish you sufficiently to take on the rest of the day.” We couldn’t agree more. Not only will this grab-and-go salad give everyone else lunch envy, but it’ll keep you feeling nourished and satisfied all afternoon.
Does Stirring Your Natural Peanut Butter Leave an Oily Mess? Use This Easy Hack Instead
Peanut butter is one of the best foods in our healthy snack arsenal: it is packed with satiating healthy fats, has protein, and tastes oh so good on top of an apple or whole wheat bread. For an even healthier choice, opt for natural peanut butter; the only ingredient should be peanuts and maybe salt. This version is free of added sugar and hydrogenated oil (score!) and is minimally processed. But without the hydrogenated oil, the natural oils from the peanuts separate and sit at the top. That means you have the hard work of stirring it back in to make your nut butter creamy again.
Until next time, kale salad.
2¾ ounces (75g) buckwheat soba noodles
1 small carrot
¼ of a large cucumber
1 raw beet, peeled
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1 teaspoon coconut aminos (or tamari)
1 tablespoon coconut milk
A small Thumb-sized piece of ginger, grated
½ ripe avocado, sliced
¼ of a small lime
1 teaspoon dried chili flakes (or 1 freshly sliced chili)
Flaked toasted coconut, for garnish
Chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish
1. Place the soba noodles in a bowl of lukewarm water to soften for 20 minutes. In the meantime, spiralize the carrot and cucumber, then grate the beet. If you don’t own a spiralizer, you can simply grate the ingredients instead. Layer the veggies in the bottom of a small lidded jar.
How to Handle Peanut Allergies
Researchers have been looking for ways to reduce their severity to make them less dangerous.
2. Combine the peanut butter, coconut aminos, coconut milk and grated ginger in a small bowl and set it aside.
3. Once the noodles are softened, drain and thoroughly rinse them in cold water before placing them in the jar. Add the peanut dressing.
4. Top the noodles with the avocado, giving it a squeeze of lime juice to ensure it stays fresh. Top with the dried chili flakes, toasted coconut and cilantro, seal the jar and store in the fridge until ready to eat.
Note: If you’re sensitive to soy, then coconut aminos can be a great alternative to soy sauce or tamari. It has the same rich taste that can add a lovely depth of flavor to your dishes, from satay-style sauces to soups.
First peanut allergy treatment to be reviewed by FDA panel.
The treatment can desensitize people with allergies to small amounts of peanuts but carries the risk of side effects. It is expected to be the first in a new wave of treatments for food allergies even though questions remain about how to use the drug.
