Hi-PRO Peanut Butter & Peanut Butter Hummus Recipe

Peanut butter is one of those staple jarred items in most people’s kitchen cupboards.  Our cupboards included. 

In recent times, My Carnivorous Husband (MCH) has become a big fan of Hi PRO Crunchy Peanut Butter as it boasts having more protein other brands.  As he’s somewhat of a ‘gym bunny’, so he likes having some peanut butter on toast before he pounds the treadmill as it gives him an energy lift (that’s where the extra protein comes in handy) .  It tastes nice with a thick consistency.  Personally, I just like it – gym or no gym…..

So it was nice to be offered the chance to try out Hi PRO Smooth Peanut Butter as a contrast.  As with the ‘Crunchy’ version, it contains 33% pure peanut protein, uses whole peanuts and peanut flour with 25% extra protein than mainstream peanut butters.   Also, it doesn’t use whey or soy to increase the protein levels, it is a great source of fibre, niacin, magnesium, zinc and vitamins B1, B6 and E plus it is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

I am mindful of palm oil origins where possible and so it’s good to know that Hi PRO obtain theirs from sustainable sources.

I would conventionally have it on toast or in a sandwich but having the smooth version to try gave me the perfect excuse to make a recipe I’ve had my eye on for ages!

It is from Nigella Lawson’s ‘Kitchen’ recipe book and it is Peanut Butter Hummus.  It substitutes the traditional use of tahini paste in hummus for peanut butter and by using Hi PRO, the hummus will also have Hi PRO’s additional protein content which is always a good thing!

Plus this is a lovely way to impress your nearest and dearest with a home-made hummus dip  perfect for those forthcoming Halloween and Bonfire Night parties.  And also, dare I even say it this early but – Christmas Buffets!!
