Tangy Boiled Peanut Snack

It's a reminder that healthy and satisfying food doesn't require fancy ingredients or complicated techniques. So, the next time you crave a wholesome and delicious treat, whip up this dish and savor the taste of tradition and good health.

The star of the show, boiled peanuts are an excellent source of plant-based protein, healthy fats, fiber, vitamins (especially biotin and niacin), and minerals (including manganese, magnesium, and phosphorus). Peanuts can be a heart-healthy addition to your diet, potentially helping to decrease triglycerides and LDL cholesterol. They are a nutritional powerhouse, a big part of which comes from various bioactive compounds like Resveratrol, Arginine, and polyphenols.  Vegetables such as cucumbers, tomatoes, and raw mango are great additions to salads. They are low in calories and fat but high in water content and essential vitamins like vitamin C, vitamin K, and potassium. Chopped cucumbers and tomatoes add freshness and hydration, while the raw mango adds a touch of tanginess. You can add vitamins, minerals, and fiber to your diet by including these veggies, making your salad a healthy meal option. Roasted cumin powder infuses the salad with its warm, earthy aroma, while black salt adds a unique savory depth. A squeeze of lemon juice adds a welcome zing and brightness. Finely chopped cilantro ties everything together with its bright, citrusy flavor and a touch of vitamin C. Cilantro Offers vitamin K and antioxidants and may help with blood sugar control.


Combining peanuts and vegetables can provide a satisfying amount of protein and fiber, which helps keep you fuller for longer and aids with appetite control. This recipe can be easily customized by adjusting the spice level, adding other chopped vegetables like bell peppers or onions, or incorporating different herbs such as mint for a refreshing twist. It's a guilt-free snack or light lunch option that you can enjoy with peace of mind.
