An Ode to Peanut Butter - Kitchen Hero!

One fine day Sainsbury's said to me,
Gee, what do you think a Signature Dish would be?
Hm, I mused, how am I supposed to know?
Ask, they replied, who's your Kitchen Hero?

Look to your cupboard...and rummage around
Your Kitchen Hero is something that can be found...
As a staple product that you can't live without
One that you can never, ever have run out

Why, that's easy, I squealed with glee
Peanut butter is a foodal essential for me
I always have at least two jars in store
If I've only got one left, I run out to buy more

Peanut butter is something I used to hate
But now, every day, I turn to it like a mate
Straight from the jar, or with a trusty bit of toast
I get a daily fix, some days more than most

So back to the important issue at hand
One dish in particular I make that is most grand
My go-to dinner when nothing else will do
A dish to impress friends, it makes them say 'Ooh...'

It's speedy to make, and easy-peasy too
Just get that peanut butter and let me show you
Mix it with Greek yogurt and a little bit of stock
And boom! You got a satay sauce that no-one will dare knock

Read on for the full recipe, I hope you'll try it out
Whether you like it or not, let me know, give me a shout
If not, then this ode I hope you still enjoy

Hi Jenny, that recipe looks amazing. I really love peanut butter in cooked dishes (not so keen just on toast though).

I am thinking about what my kitchen hero would be, maybe something pretty boring like tinned tomatoes. With tinned tomatoes in the house I know I always be able to make something yummy for dinner :)

Thanks! I loved baking with it too. Tinned tomatoes aren't boring if they are your kitchen heroes! I always have those in my cupboard too, they are a good fallback I find.
