Peanut Pad Thai Sauce


I've always been such a huge fan of peanut pad thai it's hard to believe that it's taken me this long to 
re-create it in my own kitchen.  This sauce recipe is great not only in a traditional pad thai dish on a bed of rice noodles, but also as a dipping sauce for veggies, a stir fry sauce, or even as a sauce on a delicious Thai inspired pizza (infact - that's what we had for dinner last night!). 

Regardless of what you use this Thai Sauce for, it's a great one to keep in the kitchen! 

Ingredients
- 1 tbsp peanut oil
- 1 tbsp red curry paste
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup coconut milk (full fat)
- 2 tbsp fish sauce
- 1 tbsp chili sauce (like sriracha) 
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 lime, juiced

Directions

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat up peanut oil, then add curry paste.  Cook for 1-2 minutes, then add peanut butter and coconut milk.  Stir until incorporated.  Add fish sauce, chili sauce, brown sugar, and lime juice.  Once smooth, remove from heat. 

Store sauce in fridge - re-heat to use.

Homemade Iced Tea



I am writing this in the midst of a heat wave, on the warmest day of the year so far.  Needless to say I couldn’t possibly imagine using my stove in this weather, much less heating my house up with the oven! As a result, most of the recipes I’m making these days are of the no cook/serve cold variety.
