The Pili nut, which abounds in Bicol, Philippines, is a pretty versatile ingredient. It can be used to sweeten cakes and add texture to savory dishes.
When raw, Pili nuts can be likened to macadamia nuts or sunflower seeds and when roasted, they take on a more buttery texture. However you choose to enjoy it, there's no denying that Pili nuts have a distinct, delicate flavor that's hard to resist.
And what's even more charming is that its flavor lies in its simplicity: the less you process it, the more you get to enjoy its natural personality.
As if its delicious and unique flavor wasn't enough reason to enjoy pili nuts, they are also packed with nutrients, like protein, calcium, and omega-3 fatty acids, which have been known to improve heart health.
Pili nuts also work as antioxidants, keeping blood sugar levels at bay and promoting healthier skin.
