Peanut Butter: Think Outside the Sandwich (NAPSA) - Peanut butter has been a pantry and sandwich staple in households for generations. However, this beloved American icon is more than a spread destined to partner with jelly. Peanut butter is also a nutrient-dense food that is sometimes overlooked as part of a healthy lifestyle. Incorporating peanut butter into a variety of dishes and snacks can help add important nutrients to one's diet.
A walk down the grocery store aisle reveals a wide selection of peanut butters to meet different tastes and dietary needs. Creamy or crunchy Laura Scudder's(r) Natural and Organic Peanut Butters and Jif(r) Peanut Butter brands offer an assortment of choices, including lower-salt and reduced-fat varieties.
Think outside the sandwich and spread peanut butter on apple slices for a delicious snack, put a dollop in yogurt or even stir into hot oatmeal. Peanut butter can also be the basis of sauces that can turn plain noodles or chicken into a delightfully exotic dish, as in this recipe for Asian Noodles with Chili-Nut Sauce.
Combine peanut butter, soy sauce, chili oil, rice vinegar and brown sugar in a large bowl. Stir to blend well. Toss drained noodles with chili-nut sauce, onions and peppers. Cool noodles to room temperature.
To serve, place noodles on serving platter, garnish with sesame seeds. For a variation, add 2 cups chopped cooked chicken.
