Product Description

Pine nuts, also known as pignoli, pinon, or chilgoza, are delicious, crunchy, sweet, and exceptionally good for you. In fact, they are considered to be the healthiest kind of nuts. The fact that they possess rich buttery flavor makes them a great addition to any dish, be it a salad, sauce, or dessert. The vast majority of pine trees that produce these nuts grow in taiga forests of Siberia and Canada. Chilgoza pine nuts come from the variety of the same tree that grows mostly in India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.

Health Benefits

To say that this kind of nut is nutritious would be an understatement. They contain so many essential vitamins and minerals that they can be counted as a superfood among nuts. Please note that such a tremendous nutritional value comes with a price. 100 grams of dry pine nuts contain 673 calories. You need to take this into account when you plan your daily meals to keep your diet well-balanced.

Benefits of pine nuts include but aren’t limited to:

  • Circulatory system support.
    The vast majority of calories in pine nuts come from “good” unsaturated fats that lower the level of LDL “bad” cholesterol. These elements help maintain your vessels in good shape, cleanse your body of ‘bad’ fats, and thereby strengthen your cardiovascular system as a whole.
  • Antioxidant protection from free radical damage.
    Pine nuts are an extremely potent antioxidant. They contain significant amounts of vitamin E (62% of the recommended daily amount in 100 g), which is directly responsible for protection against free radicals and supporting the integrity of cell membranes. In simple terms, eating these nuts improves your general well-being and strengthens your body’s natural defenses.
  • Gluten-free fiber source.
    Pine nuts safe for people with gluten sensitivity and those who simply want to avoid this protein. If you decide to pursue gluten-free diet to improve your general health and manage weight, this particular ingredient will be a good addition to your daily meals. The nuts contain lots of dietary fiber and essential nutrients, which are essential for achieving your goals.
  • Appetite suppression.
    Pinoleic acid is one of the essential omega six fatty acids that pine nuts have in abundance. It boosts the production of elements that suppress the feeling of hunger. Therefore, theymake a great snack for a weight management meal plan. This also makes pine nuts a perfect snack for hikers who spend extended periods of time out in the wilderness.
  • Bones strength promotion.
    Among all the minerals pine nuts provide your body with, calcium and manganese are essential for bone strength and integrity. Eating these nuts gives a boost to your skeleton. It would become more beneficial as the years go by, because human bones become more brittle with age.

    This is a great product, and a VERY reasonable price for what it is. You can easily pay twice this much for pine nuts in health food stores. This came perfectly packaged, and arrived early. It’s the 2nd or 3rd time I’ve ordered this item from this company, and it won’t be my last.

    What a great product!! I usually get my pine nuts at Costco, but these were less expensive, so I decided to give them a try. Much to my delight, they are very fresh and full of great flavor. I will be ordering from this company again many times!

    Oh my YUMMY! Toasted these up last night to add to a brussels sprout dish (I know, right?!) and even my daughter loved it! They are delicious right out of the bag, tossed on a salad. Some of the freshest I have ever tried. Will definitely shop from this Seller again!

    I have always purchased my Pignolias from a commercial Food Service purveyor of who I have dealt with for many years. Unfortunately they no longer carry Pine Nuts and I had to go elsewhere to find them. This pouch of nuts arrived on time and well packaged. I immediately opened them and placed them into one of my empty quart spice jars and placed it on my spice rack.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 (14-ounce; 400g) block firm tofu
  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) Shaoxing wine or dry sherry
  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) dark soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons (10ml) Chinese black vinegar or cider vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons (60ml) hoisin sauce, plus more for serving
  • 2 teaspoons (10ml) chili sauce, such as Sriracha or sambal oelek (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon (about 3g) cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 ounces pine nuts (40g; about 1/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) vegetable oil, divided
  • 2 1/2 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stems removed, cut into 1/4-inch dice (70g; about 1 cup diced)
  • 3 scallions, white and pale green parts only, thinly sliced
  • 3 medium cloves garlic, minced (about 1 tablespoon; 15ml)
  • 1 (1-inch) knob ginger, minced (about 1 tablespoon; 15ml)
  • 4 ounces jicama, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch dice (about 1/2 of an apple-sized jicama; 120g)
  • 2 ounces celery, cut into 1/4-inch dice (about 1 large stalk; 60g)
  • Handful chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • Kosher salt
  • Ground white pepper
  • 1 head iceberg or green leaf lettuce, picked into individual leaves, stored in ice water until ready to use


DIRECTIONS:

  1. Cut tofu into 1/4-inch slabs. Press firmly between paper towels to remove excess moisture, then cut into 1/4-inch dice. Set aside.
  2. Combine Shaoxing wine, soy sauce, vinegar, hoisin sauce, chili sauce (if using), cornstarch, and 1 tablespoon (15ml) water in a small bowl and mix with a fork until homogeneous. Set aside.
  3. Combine pine nuts and 1 tablespoon (15ml) oil in a wok and place over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until nuts are well toasted, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside.
  4. Add 1 tablespoon oil to wok and heat over high heat until lightly smoking. Add tofu and cook, stirring occasionally, until tofu is well browned all over, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to bowl with pine nuts.
  5. Add 1 tablespoon oil to wok and heat over high heat until lightly smoking. Add shiitakes and cook, stirring occasionally, until well browned all over, about 3 minutes. Transfer to bowl with tofu and pine nuts.
  6. Heat remaining tablespoon oil in wok over high heat until lightly smoking. Add scallions, garlic, and ginger and cook, stirring and tossing constantly, until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Add jicama and celery and toss to combine. Return tofu, mushrooms, and pine nuts to wok and toss to combine. Stir sauce with a fork to reintegrate any cornstarch that may have settled to the bottom, then add to wok. Cook, tossing and stirring constantly, until all vegetables are evenly coated in sauce. Stir in cilantro (reserve a little for garnish) and season to taste with salt and white pepper. Transfer to a warm serving platter and sprinkle with reserved cilantro.
  7. Serve immediately. To eat, spread a little hoisin sauce on the bottom of a lettuce leaf and spoon the filling into the lettuce. Eat with your hands.
