We just got another new product into the aWarehouse: Styrian Pumpkin Seed Oil. This oil is very darkly pigmented and when I first smelled it I was startled by it’s lovely peanut-like aroma. The taste is nutty and almost toasty.
As soon as I tasted it I could tell it would be a wonderful addition to one of my favorite dressings, an asian-styled peanut dressing. I did a recipe some time ago for Wild Jungle Peanut Noodles so I wanted to try something slightly different. I decided to try a Wild Jungle Peanut Dressing with a cabbage cole slaw. The recipe came out quite delicious.
Wild Jungle Peanut Slaw
1 container Wild Jungle Peanut Butter
1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
3 tbs. Styrian Pumpkin Seed Oil
3 tbs. raw honey or other sweetener
2 tbs. nama shoyu, wheat-free tamari or miso
2 tbs. apple cider vinegar
1 inch chunk fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
zest from one orange
1 dried chipotle pepper soaked in 1/2 cup of water, remove seeds from soft pepper
1/2 tsp. mineral-rich salt
Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender. Blend on high until well-combined and creamy.
1 mango, peeled and sliced
1 bunch cilantro, minced
1 cucumber, seeds removed & sliced
1 red pepper, sliced
1 head green cabbage, finely chopped
Wild Jungle Peanuts for garnish
If you eat cooked food the dressing goes extremely well with baked sweet potatoes, but then what doesn’t?
