Peanut Parsley Pesto

Nuts add protein-packed flavor to a variety of recipes. Here’s some information about our favorite kinds of nuts:

Peanuts: Peanuts aren’t technically nuts, but rather legumes related to beans and lentils. Packed with niacin, thiamin and vitamin E, they are high in antioxidants and contain no cholesterol.

Pecans: Pecans contain heart-healthy fats along with antioxidants to help fight disease and lower cholesterol. Emerging research shows that eating pecans can help with weight control efforts.

Pistachios: Pistachios are an antioxidant powerhouse, as well as an excellent source of vitamin B6, copper and manganese. A 1-ounce serving provides about 12 percent of the recommended daily value of dietary fiber.
