Pistachio nuts are actually a member of the cashew family and contain fewer calories and more protein than most other nuts, making them a truly balanced and nutritious snack. Pistachios are high in protein, fibre, and antioxidants and their essential amino acid content is higher than any other nut. They also boast several other important nutrients, including vitamin B6 and potassium, with 28 grams containing more potassium than half of a large banana!

Interestingly, people have been eating pistachios since 7000 BC. Nowadays, they're very popular in sweet dishes, including ice cream and desserts. Why not combine them with other nuts, dried fruits and seeds in a scrumptious trail mix or roughly chop and added to muesli, granola, yoghurt or smoothie bowls.
Unsalted pistachios can be activated by soaking them in water for 12 hours, before slowly dehydrating at very low heat. Or grind them to make yummy dairy-free nut butter – wonderful for vegans and in raw food recipes.
Coarsely ground pistachios are also great in veggie burgers, pesto, dips and as a base for sauces; use them to replace peanuts in satay sauce. Toss pistachios over fresh salads, or add to couscous and rice dishes. Pistachios are also a delicious addition to bread, muffins, cakes and biscuits including traditional Biscotti. Or use them in home-made ice cream and confections such as baklava, halva and raw, vegan or dairy chocolate.
