COLD PEANUT BUTTER PASTA SALAD
Peanut butter is a great ingredient in sweets, but you can also make savory dinners with it. In this make-ahead recipe, the chilled pasta salad includes peanut butter, fresh vegetables, noodles and spices. Because of the red pepper flakes, this salad has a good kick to it, so use 1-2 teaspoons depending on the amount of heat you prefer (I’m more of a 2 teaspoons girl myself). If you’ve never tried Peanut Butter & Co. Smooth Operator and noodles before, give it a shot! It has become one of our favorite recipes. Get the recipe here!

GRILLED PEANUT BUTTER S’MORES
So you got the grill out and you miss your peanut butter fix. (Been there!) Don’t fret—make these simple s’mores for dessert and you’ll please the whole crowd! The grill temperature for s’mores is best when the fire is dying down, so it’s the perfect way to end your meal. Get the recipe here!
ALOO PAALAK MUNGPHALI TIKKI (VEGETABLE PATTIES WITH SPINACH, PEANUT, AND POTATO)
These are traditionally made in a deep fryer, but we find it simpler to cook them in a small amount of oil in a cast iron or non-stick pan. The patties can be made in the morning, refrigerated, and then sautéed for dinner. They also freeze perfectly and can be your go-to meal or snack. In India, we’d eat these as sandwich, between two slices of bread spread with tamarind or green chutney, or for those like me, both. These are the perfect bite-sized snack after a delicious meal from the grill! Get the recipe here!
This fierce and fiery condiment is known throughout Veracruz, in widely different versions linked only by the use of small, hot dried chiles, garlic, and oil (usually olive oil, but some people prefer vegetable oil). The Orizaba-Córdoba area is an epicenter of excellent salsa macha, often featuring ground peanuts. Get the recipe here!
