Slow cooked beef satay with almond butter

Some health reasons to choose almond butter over peanut butter and a recipe for almond butter Beef Satay

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!
