My husband and I love peanut sauce. If a menu has a dish with peanut sauce, we will undoubtedly order it. The downside to that is that peanut sauce is usually filled with sodium at restaurants, so it when I saw this recipe that called for wholesome ingredients I knew I needed to try it out. Here's what I did:
Ingredients for the peanut sauce:
1/4 cup organic peanut butter (use a quality peanut butter without a lot of sugar)
1/4 cup organic sesame oil
juice from half an orange or lemon (I used an orange)
1/4 cup agave (I followed the recipe and personally felt 1/4 cup made the sauce too sweet- try using less if you don't want to feel like you're eating dessert)
ground ginger to taste (option to use chili flakes, depending on what kind of spice you're going for)
Whisk everything together.
Ingredients for meal:
4 organic carrots
1 organic zucchini
1 head of broccoli
1 red pepper
handful of peanuts
Dice all the veggies while the noodles boil. In the last minute of the noodles cooking, add in the veggies. (You can add them earlier if you like your veggies cooked a bit more.) Strain and run under cold water to stop the cooking process. Put noodles and veggies in a large bowl. Add the peanuts and the peanut sauce. Stir it all up, eat and enjoy.
