Believe it or not this was a last minute meal last week before we left town. I was in a hurry and I had a big bag of snow peas in the fridge. I thought I’d grill them somehow and find a way to put it over rice when it popped in my head that I could do some sort of peanut sauce. Luckily I had all the ingredients in my pantry and fridge and it all worked out! Just a side note – Authentic Thai cooking does not involve peanut butter. They don’t really use it over there. Glad I’m not in Thailand because I love this stuff!
Thai Peanut Sauce (original recipe from Shesimmers.com)
To make vegetables:
- 2-3 cups of vegetables ( I used snow peas, carrots, peas)
- 1 Tbs. olive oil
- 1 cup chicken, cooked
To make sauce:
- 1 13 oz. can coconut milk
- 1/4 cup Thai red curry paste
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 Tbs salt
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 Tbs apple cider vinegar or white vinegar
- 1/2 cup water
Put all ingredients into a pot and bring to a gentle boil, whisking constantly. Let simmer for 3-5 minutes over low heat. Remove from heat and add to vegetables. Serve over rice.
The whole fam gobbled this baby up. We sure love our Thai food.
