Coconut Curry Peanut Sauce

We are curry-a-holics in my house. We are also peanut butter-a-holics and Thai-a-holics, therefore this recipe is a no brainer.  I basically make something like this almost every week in some form or another.  Sometimes there’s chili garlic paste, often times no coconut milk, many times I use Chinese 5 spice powder instead of curry. In any case, a good “Asian-style” sauce is crucial to the survival of Ross and I. We would most certainly perish without our peanut noodles.

This time around I served up our delightfully yummy and easy sauce with some lomein noodles we had kicking around, chicken and bok choy. It is also perfect with brown rice, rice noodles or just about anything your little heart desires. Even pizza. Yes, that’s correct – Thai peanut pizza. Delicious. Don’t knock it till you try it.

Coconut Curry Peanut Sauce
Makes enough for two portions

1 tsp. soy sauce

1.) Combine all ingredients in a small pot.
2.) Set to medium heat and cook down until thickened.
3.) Top whatever you please!

About sweetersalt

Salt = sodium = bad. Sweet = calories = bad. Well, isn't that just a bleak outlook. I firmly believe that without salt and without sweet we all just live in a world of lettuce. Plain lettuce. Fun? No. This blog is about life. Namely, my life. But, not that specific. I myself am simply not that interesting. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job and do ordinary things. But... life is all about experiencing that feeling you get when you really, really like something. If you don't feel a little warm in your heart when you walk into a farmer's market or try on a piece of beautiful clothing that fits you perfectly (that just so happens to be a great deal!) then you should probably keep on a' movin' from my little plot of internet. Sweeter salt is my metaphor for the good things in life, sprinkled over everything in moderation. Banana? Kinda boring. Banana smoothie - yum! White tank top? Yawn. Statement necklace layered over said tank - now we're talking! I live in Portland, Maine. I love cooking, eating out, riding my bike and approachable fashion. This blog does not chronicle my every waking moment. This is because you will probably not be entertained by the 10th day in a row that I eat the exact same salad for lunch. It does chronicle a healthy, active, fun-filled, colorful lifestyle, in Portland and beyond. It also covers dogs. Cute ones mostly.
