Pistachios! One of the oldest nuts of our time (even being mentioned in the bible). They are predominantly green with a hint of purple in the kernel. Pistachios generally have a very mild flavour that can be a little sweet. They are extremely versatile, being available for both sweet and savoury dishes, making them common in many different cultures.
You can do almost anything with these tasty little dudes, from using them as a counterpoint to brighten up a dish to letting their buttery richness smooth out a biscotti, pound cake, or pear tart. We have you covered for pistachio recipes that will meet every occassion whether it’s sweet or savoury!
Why not try out: pistachio yoghurt sauce, pistachio pesto, salted pistachio chocolate cake, prune&pistachio oat bars, beetroot and carrot salad with pistachio shavings, and more!
This is a nut that offers more than just good looks and taste though. It’s a nutritional powerhouse. Here are some of the health benefits of pistachios:
* High levels of unsaturated fatty acids and potassium. Both have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory traits.
* They can lower your chances for cardiovascular disease.
* Pistachios are bursting with the fibre, minerals, and unsaturated fat that can help keep your blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol in check.
