Veggie Peanut Soup by Manilife

Mmm hearty & delicious, this nourishing soup is the perfect quick lunch when you need something to fuel you through your day!

Ingredients

1L of Vegetable stock
500ml water
1 medium red onion, chopped
2 tbsp diced fresh ginger
4 cloves garlic, cut in small pieces
1 tsp salt
1 bunch of kale, chopped into strips 100g of Manilife Peanut Butter
3.5 tablespoons of tomato paste
Hot sauce
Handful of chopped peanuts, for garnish Cooked brown rice, for serving (optional)

Method

Combine the broth and water in a pot and bring to boil.

When it starts simmering add in the onion, ginger, garlic, and salt. Cook on medium-low heat for 20 minutes.

In another bowl (heat-safe) combine the peanut butter & tomato paste.

Add the 500ml of hot stock to the bowl – this will help smoothen the PB/tomato paste, so you need to mix it well.

Once smooth add it back to your pot and stir.

Add in the kale and if you want it hot, add in some chilli flakes or hot sauce!

Once everything has been added, let everything simmer for another 10-15mins (depends it you want your kale crunchy or not!).

Taste it and add more seasoning if needed.

This recipe is tastiest when served over cooked brown rice!

Finally, if you have some peanuts, chop them and sprinkle on top. Yum!

Raw and Wild Pili Nuts

In our October Lifebox you’ll find the incredible Raw & Wild who are masters of the nutritionally packed and delicious Pili Nut.

You might be wondering, what exactly is a Pili nut?
 

Raw & Wild wild harvest their nuts from Pili trees in the Bicol region in the Philippines.

Known as the ‘stress loving trees‘ due to their resilience to extreme weather conditions, Pili trees often have an abundance of fruits after typhoons and so are perfectly suited to this tropical, rainy region.

Similarly to a coconut, Pili fruits are dried in the sun before they are shelled! They are one tough nut to crack, so Raw & Wild employ the most skilled shell experts who use Bicolano machetes over a wooden board to break through their tough exterior. These experts are masters in precision, controlled strength and speed – a real art form!

Once shelled, Raw & Wild pre-sprout and rehydrate their Pili Nuts to preseve all the vital enzymes, minerals and nutrients. The activation process breaks down complex starch, neutralises the phytic acid found in all nuts and seeds and ignites the ‘life force‘ of the nut.

Are Pili nuts nutritious?

Pili nuts have an impressive nutritional  profile. They contain the highest amount of Vitamin E than any other nut, are very high in magnesium and Omega 9.
