Announcing Cooking with Whole Foods - Peanut

>> Thursday, February 9, 2012

I think it has become quite common on my blog to make false promises (by me). I apologize for the same. But, the circumstances are so that I'm unable to blog often. Yesterday I received an email from Kiran of Sumadhura that I'm supposed to host Cooking with Whole Foods Event for Feb 2012 - Apr 2012. Honestly speaking, thanks to you, Kiran, for reminding me coz I've compeletely forgotten that I've taken this responsibility. Well, it happens if you are away from blogosphere and fellow friends. This is the first time I'm logging into my blog in this new year 2012 ( though it's no more new!!). Anyways, I wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year 2012.

So, here I announce the first event of this year on my blog "Cooking with Whole Foods - Peanut". This event will hosted on Rasoi from today (Feb 10, 2012) till April 10, 2012.


Well, if I recall "Why have I chosen Peanut as the main ingredient?" then the reason is I had done shopping the same day and bought Peanuts. When I was going through Kiran's blog looking for available slot to host this event, I saw that it was occupied for the whole year and that too with amazing ingredients. Finally I found an empty slot during Feb 2012 and decided that I'm going to host this event. But, I had no idea about the ingredient and suddenly I saw the pack of peanuts.. Voila!! Peanuts became the star ingredient for this event. I shot an email to Kiran, she said "Yes" and almost after 1 year she sent me another email reminding me "Hey! It's time for your peanuts..." (Just kidding..)

According to Wikipedia, peanuts have many uses (Well I agree to this as well.) They can be eaten raw, used in recipes, made into solvents and oils, used in make-up ( I didn't know this), medicines, textile materials, peanut butter, as well as many other uses. Peanuts are used to help fight malnutrition. High protein, high energy and high nutrient peanut-based pastes that were developed to be used as a therapeutic food to aid in famine relief (sounds interesting.) Peanuts are rich in nutrients, providing over 30 essential nutrients and phytonutrients. Peanuts are a good source of niacin, folate, fiber, magnesium, vitamin E, manganese and phosphorus. They also are naturally free of trans-fats and sodium, and contain about 25% protein (a higher proportion than in any true nut). Isn't that amazing..

So guys, come up with mouthwatering, healthy and innovative dishes using peanuts. Share them with us. I'm looking forward to loads n loads of delicious recipes.

All you need to do is:

1) Prepare any dish using Peanut or having Peanut as a main ingredient and post them on your blog. send them to me between Feb 10, 2012 and  Apr 10, 2012. Non-Bloggers can send their recipes with the details to the my email id.

2) Please link back your recipes to this event announcement and Kiran's event page. Do include the logo in your post.
 
 
3) You can link as many links as you want.
 
 
4) Archived  posts are accepted. Repost them and you are good to go.
 
 
I'll try to post some entries for this event. Also, I've some pending posts that I'll post soon in my blog. I really want to keep in touch with you all, my dear friends. Please do support me. Send as many entries as possible and make this event a huge hit. I thank Kiran for giving me this opportunity to host this event.
