Today I wanted to raise the issue of recipes. I am a recipe fiend (yes, I am one of those people who reads cookbooks for pleasure). And I try recipes out all the time. Many times I try to adapt the recipe to remove the offending peanuts (or peanut butter) and usually I'm pretty successful. For some, I just omit the nuts (like the Thai Beef Salad in the September Everyday Food). For others, I replace the oil and use canola instead of peanut oil. And for others, I get creative and use tahini instead of PB.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who does this. I'd love to hear some of your success stories! Have you made a pecan free pecan pie? Really? I'd love to know how! Leave them in the comments for me.
Would you all be interested in me listing the recipes I adapt here?
