Peanut Sauce Recipe

This goes great with spaghetti or soba noodles with pineapple or cucumber or over baked tofu with brown rice and steamed broccoli. I like it a bit thinner so I use a bit more vinegar and rice wine to taste. I serve it with a broccoli slaw salad. For the dressing, I use a pack of oriental ramen seasoning for the base then add oil and vinegar. Then crunch some of the dry noodles on top if the salad. Yummy and easy.

1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
3 tbs rice wine
1 tbs water
2 tbs rice vinegar
1 tbs sesame oil
1 tbs brown sugar or agave nectar
3 garlic cloves, pressed or grated
Sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes

Note: if you are not used to cooking Asian food and don't have a lot of these ingredients, don't worry. They don't cost much and keep forever!
