Cook healthily: Delicious recipes with salted organic pistachios

Salty pistachio and vegetable stir-fry

Let's start with a delicious, nutritious and easy-to-prepare meal: the savory pistachio and vegetable stir-fry. This simple pan is proof that healthy eating doesn't have to be boring. It combines crunchy vegetables with the rich taste of salted organic pistachios into one dish. First choose your favorite vegetables. For example, you could use broccoli, peppers and zucchini. Then fry the vegetables in a little olive oil until they are crispy. While the vegetables are cooking, chop a handful of salted organic pistachios. The salt content of pistachios adds an extra layer of flavor and highlights the vegetable's natural flavors. Once the vegetables are ready, sprinkle the chopped pistachios on top and stir well. The result is a nutrient-dense pan with a wonderful texture and unique flavor. This recipe shows the versatility of pistachios. Usually found in confectionery, here they bring an unexpected twist to a savory dish. And since they're high in protein, they help make this meal filling.

Pistachio salad with lemon dressing

The preparation is easy and can be done even by novice cooks. For two people you need around 150 grams of mixed salad leaves, for example rocket and lamb's lettuce, 50 grams of salted organic pistachios, half a red onion, a lemon and olive oil. First, the lettuce leaves are washed and dried. The onion is cut into thin rings and the pistachios are roughly chopped. To make the dressing, squeeze the juice from the lemon and mix it with three tablespoons of olive oil. The dressing is seasoned with salt and pepper. The salad is distributed on plates and sprinkled with the onion rings and pistachios. Finally, the dressing is poured over it. Fresh baguette or ciabatta goes perfectly with this. The combination of crisp salads, tart pistachios and the fresh dressing creates a taste experience that you won't soon forget.

Pistachio energy balls

Preparing energy balls is very easy and requires no special cooking skills. All you need is a blender - and of course the right ingredients. For about 12 balls you need: 2 cups of peeled, salted organic pistachios, 1 cup of dried dates (pitted), 2 tablespoons of honey or agave syrup and a pinch of salt. First, put the pistachios in the blender and grind them into coarse flour. Then the dates are added. These not only provide sweetness, but also ensure that the dough holds together. Now add the honey or agave syrup and the salt and process everything into a sticky mass. Now form small balls out of the dough - you can vary the size according to your taste. For an extra crunch, you can roll the finished energy balls in chopped pistachios. These are ideal as a quick snack between meals or when you're hungry. They give you quick energy and keep you full for a long time thanks to the fiber. The pistachios also make them rich in healthy fats that are good for your heart.

Pistachio Pesto

Take a cup of peeled organic pistachios and roast them in a pan without oil for a few minutes. This makes the aroma even more intense. Then place the pistachios in a blender along with a handful of fresh basil, juice of half a lemon, two cloves of garlic and four tablespoons of olive oil. Puree everything into a uniform mass and season with salt and pepper to taste. Then gradually add more olive oil until your pesto has the desired consistency. Voila! In less than 15 minutes you can conjure up a homemade pistachio pesto! This green gold is ideal as a dip for vegetable sticks or bread, but also for refining pasta or meat dishes. It is incredibly versatile and brings a touch of luxury to your everyday meals.

Salty pistachio chocolate

Who would have thought that the combination of chocolate and salted pistachios would be so irresistible? You need 200 grams of organic dark chocolate, 100 grams of organic pistachios and a pinch of sea salt. First melt the chocolate in a water bath. Meanwhile, roast the pistachios in a pan without oil and lightly salt them. Once they are golden brown, remove them from the heat. Pour the melted chocolate into a mold and smooth it out. Then spread the roasted pistachios evenly on top and press them down lightly. The chocolate now just needs to cool down - ideally overnight in the fridge. So why not try something new and make this delicious and healthy treat yourself?

Pistachio pilaf

First, fry the onions in a little olive oil until they are golden brown. Then add a cup of basmati rice and stir well to coat it with the oil. Now comes the special part of this recipe - the pistachios! Add half a cup of chopped organic salted pistachios to the rice. The combination of salty pistachios and sweet onions creates a taste experience that will make your taste buds rejoice. Next, add two cups of chicken broth and simmer the rice until it has absorbed the water. While the rice is cooking, you can add spices like saffron or turmeric to add additional flavor. As soon as the rice is cooked, remove the pilaf from the heat and let it rest for a few minutes. Then gently fluff the rice with a fork and serve it hot. Garnish the dish with some additional pistachios for an added crunch and color contrast.
