This really is as good as the name sounds and very easy to make. I could eat this every single day and never get tired of it :) If you’re really pressed for time, you can even just combine all of the ingredients and heat in the microwave. I usually quadruple the recipe to make a big batch and then freeze it in 1/2 and 1 cup portions for a quick throw together meal.
|Perfect Peanut Sauce over pasta and veggies|
- ¼ cup smooth natural peanut butter
- ¼ cup light coconut milk (or skim milk and 1 tsp coconut extract or even just plain milk/water if you don't like coconut)
- ¼ cup water
- 2 tsp soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp sucanat/honey
- 1 Tbsp lemon or lime juice
- 1 clove crushed garlic
TWO: Heat over medium heat until sauce begins to bubble and thicken. You only want the sauce to thicken slightly until it just starts to coat the back of a spoon because it will thicken quite a bit more while it stands and once you've poured it over your pasta or whatever you're serving it with. If it gets too thick, thin it with a little bit of chicken broth or skim milk.
|JUST coating the spoon... as soon as you see this get it off of the heat ASAP :)|
