recipe inspiration

Thursday, May 23, 2013

I was recently inspired to make a dish based on Coach Nicole's Tasty Peanut Sauce. I didn't have any garlic or ginger and I modified the preparation but it turned out really good. I would like to try it with the garlic and ginger next time.

I used water, smooth peanut butter (crunchy would be good too), double fermented soy sauce, and ginger powder. Just because those are the things I had without any additional schlepping.

I warmed this all up in a very small sauce pan and whisked it until it was the consistency I wanted. Next, I adjusted the soy sauce and ginger powder to taste. If I were to do the minced garlic, I would saute that up first to take the sting out, then proceed with the rest of the ingredients.

Meanwhile, I cooked some whole wheat angel hair pasta and a bag of frozen edamame. Drained both separately and combined in a large serving dish and drizzled the peanut sauce over it.

Super yum+Kid tested and approved= big thumbs up.

May I suggest 2 ounces of Malbec? It paired quite well. Malbec is funny that way, pairing with everything.

May I also suggest a leisurely doggie sunset walk after to settle the belly?

    Thanks for sharing! I saw that recipe the other day and it looked interesting. I will definitely try it now.

DH doesn't like nuts in his hot food though, so how to disguise??? I guess I'll have to stick to the creamy PB, LOL!

    That sounds really yummy. I have been thinking about trying to make a peanut sauce with my PB2 (powdered peanut butter.)
