Peanut Sauce

Last night I made some delicious and simple Peanut Sauce. A friend had mentioned to me that she makes it often and given that “pee-Oh” is basically another food group in our house I decided to give it a try.

I sauteed Onion, garlic, green beans and carrots in canola oil while I cooked some spinach and brown rice pasta in another pot.  Then I added 1/3 cup Peanut butter (creamy), 1/3 cup water, 2 T. lime juice, 2 T. Soy sauce, 1 tsp. sugar, dash cayennne pepper to the veggies.  Then I added the noodles.  It was very yummy and easy.   I think I added a bit more  sugar, PB, and water in the end because I wanted  more peanut flavor.

Jack didn’t really like it?? Who know why. .. It was sweet and peanut butter flavored…??? What else could a growing 19 month old want — I suppose straight peanut butter– by the spoonful..

But the other members of our family  found it to be  delicious…

  1. That sounds delicious!!!

  2. maybe because of the soy?? it has a very distinct flavor, maybe he didn’t like that. funny thing- william doesn’t really like peanut butter. i’ve tried it on sandwiches, apples, crackers, etc. any suggestions? i would love to be able to make him a pb&j, but haven’t tried that again for awhile.
