Today we're celebrating Peanut Day! While The Happy Herbivore Cookbook is made up of recipes without any added fat, there are a few "cheater" recipes that aren't completely fat free. The "Cheater" Pad Thai (p. 117) uses a little peanut butter to create a delicious pad thai sauce that you can serve over noodles or vegetables, or even in a salad. Enjoy!
"Cheater" Pad Thai Sauce
Makes 2 Servings
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp smooth peanut butter
1 tbsp sweet red chili Asian sauce
1/4 tsp granulated garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp hot sauce, or to taste
1. In a small bowl, whisk 2 tbsp of warm water, soy sauce, peanut butter, chili sauce, garlic powder, ginger and hot sauce together until combined. It may appear too runny at first, but it's not.
2. Taste, adding more hot sauce if desired.
Use to coat rice noodles, tofu, as a salad topper, or even in a vegetable stir fry!
