I am a massive fan of Thai flavours and satay in particular. This Beef Satay dish is a firm favourite and tastes delicious. It’s surprisingly easy to make. Satay dishes usually use peanut butter but I have swapped this for almond butter as it think it just has the edge health wise! Here are some reasons why:
- Almond butter has higher levels of monounsaturated fat
- It has four times more vitamin A than peanut butter
- It contains more magnesium
- It has higher levels of fibre
- It contains more iron
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE peanut butter but if this simple switch can make the dish more healthy, then I am all for it. Similarly, I have opted to serve it with Cauliflower rice for a lighter option.
Do give it a try and let me know how you get on. I love it and I think you will too!
