You gotta make this sauce

Have I told you about "Mmmm sauce" before?  It's so yummy.

We have it at our house almost weekly.  It's a peanut sauce and it's good over oh-so many things!  If you haven't had peanut sauce, then just trust me on this, you're gonna love it.  If you already love it, you're gonna be so psyched to have this recipe in your back pocket!

It's got all the key attributes: Ro loves it, E loves it, it takes minutes to put together and I usually have everything on hand.  WINNER.

(adapted from peas and thank you)
makes a few cups!

1/4 c. coconut milk
1/4 c. fire roasted tomatoes in juice (I used canned)
1/4 c. natural peanut butter
1 T. reduced sodium soy sauce
1 T. lime juice
2 t. minced ginger
2 cloves roughly chopped garlic
1 T. agave syrup (or maple)
also add sriracha if you like-a the spiciness!

Throw it all in a blender and let'er ride for a minute or so.  Really.  That's it.

We use full fat coconut milk because the kiddo loves it and I try to get calories into her any way I can (any way that's not cookies).  We also use peanut butter whose ingredients are: dry roasted organic peanuts.  I'll admit, I'm not a measurer in the kitchen and this recipe turns out great no matter my impreciseness.

We pour it over roasted/sauteed veggies with a few noodles thrown in.  Or we replace the noodles with rice.  I've even dipped carrots in it, cold.

Please make this, you'll thank me later.

  1. I bet this would be super delicious. Anything with coconut oil or peanut butter is awesome in my books. Putting them together would make it even better! : )
