Many of us have a jar of peanut butter in the house. It is packed with flavor and makes a great sandwich filling, some pair it with jelly or jam, it can be grilled with banana.
Let us think outside the box a little bit and imagine what else that creamy jar of goodness can become. How about a Peanut sauce, it is great over vegetables, or noodles, or a combination of the above. This sauce can be stirred into soups to give them a non meat base that is delicious and if you are ambitious, and make dumplings or spring rolls it is a great dipping sauce
- Olive Oil
- 8 cloves of garlic
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup REAL Soy sauce (not that watered down low sodium garbage)
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- Hot pepper flakes
- Green onions chopped
Finely mince the garlic and saute in the olive oil until fragrant, add the peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil and hot pepper flakes (to taste) and stir over low heat. When combined add warm water until you reach the desired thinness. I like mine the texture of heavy cream. Taste, adjust if needed and toss with your favorite noodles garnishing with the green onions.
If you have leftovers just dip your toast into it in the morning. Breakfast!
