So as you can imagine, we still have quite a love for it and find peanuts make a great addition to so many meals—from salads to soups and stir-fries (and of course with chocolate and in desserts! ;)). Besides their flavor, they offer a great crunch, protein, fiber and heart healthy fats.In honor of National Peanut Month, we’ve got this Broccoli Peanut Stir-Fry for ya. Give it a whirl and let us know what you think–we hope you love it! 🙂
