I have fallen in love with Bim’s Kitchen African Baobab & Peanut Butter. It contains only natural ingredients: peanuts, baobab fruit, honey and sunflower oil. That’s it! It’s a crunchy peanut butter, with fresh chunks of peanuts throughout. I already tried it on a toasted bagel (my simple photo on Twitter and Instagram generated more interest than my elaborate dishes!) I thought to myself… I need to think about how to incorporate this amazing baobab peanut butter into a recipe (I’m collaborating with Bim’s Kitchen to develop recipes for their website).
Yes, you can use any crunchy peanut butter but I highly recommend Bim’s Kitchen African Baobab & Peanut Butter. Firstly, it contains 10% baobab fruit, which has a nutty flavour and gives the peanut butter a slight hint of sweetness. Plus, the baobab fruit is an African “superfood” chock full of vitamins, antioxidants and other nutrients.
If that hasn’t convinced you enough, Bim’s Kitchen African Baobab & Peanut Butter doesn’t have the unpleasant clag factor of regular peanut butter. It has a nice fresh taste, one that goes well with ginger so I came up with a peanut-ginger sauce for this recipe.
I wanted to use vibrant, crisp vegetables for this stir fry so I chose spring onions, and both green and red peppers (but you can choose yellow or orange ones too!) I added garlic for extra flavour and lots of ginger to enhance the baobab peanut butter’s clean, fresh flavour.
A drizzle of sesame oil prepared the stir fried vegetables for the dish’s nutty flavours. The prawns were enhanced by the soy sauce and Thai fish sauce, which blended perfectly with the baobab peanut butter. And because it’s crunchy, the finished dish looks and tastes like you added a sprinkle of peanuts at the end, but without the hassle of chopping them and/or roasting them.
I recommend you use cooked prawns because it’s easier and quicker. If you choose raw prawns, stir fry the veggies for a slightly shorter time so they don’t get too mushy when cooking the raw prawns until they are pink.
I find ready noodles easiest to use… you just stir them in at the very end. There are varieties you can choose such as rice noodles or egg noodles.

The African Baobab & Peanut Butter is marked as a “limited edition” so I would definitely stock up. Believe me, once you taste it you won’t want any other peanut butter.
