So, Amanda invited me over for dinner earlier this week to use up some of her CSA produce (and maybe for the company?? :)). She was making Thai and asked me to bring broccoli, so I found a simple recipe and made a nice peanut sauce to go with it. Little did I know she was also making a peanut sauce! Luckily they were two very different recipes.
For my broccoli with peanut sauce:
For the peanut sauce, I used THIS recipe, but instead of sugar I used the caramel sauce I made last week. I think I used more than 1/4 C pb (didn’t measure) and I ended up adding about 2 1/2 Tbsp of the caramel instead of 1 tsp sugar. The vinegar and soy sauce just seemed way too overpowering without the extra boost of sweetness.
We had lots of leftovers, so I got to take some home and have it for lunch and dinner today. And last night…I went out for Thai. I’ve been eating a lot of Thai lately. Now I just realized I’m broke and need to have a spending freeze, but a post about what was probably my last meal out for a long while is coming soon!
