Dish history

Sauces are an incredibly versatile element, they can be absolute show-stoppers or delicate, discreet yet fundamental complements. They enhance tastes, give a special twist to plain dishes and are quick and fun to prepare! This peanut sauce, beside being incredibly tasty, also contains many beneficial properties: in fact, peanuts are rich in vitamin E and B, fibre and mineral salts such as phosphorous, potassium and, above all, magnesium. They are also an important source of 'good/essential fats': oleic acid (omega 9, parent element of the most famous omega 3) and linoleic acid (omega 6).
