Thai-Style Peanut Sauce

Thai-Style Peanut Sauce

Usually our Saturdays end up being busier than weekdays, and as much you’d like to treat yourself to a great meal, there is little time to cook. Luckily this time, I had baked tofu and cooked Basmati rice (Polow) from the day before, and all I needed was a great sauce and some veggies for a quick fine meal! Steam cook your vegetables no more than (6-8 min) and prep the peanut sauce while waiting. There is a picture of our dinner. dinnner1Not bad, huh?
