This recipe is from FMTV. Check out the site, there are lots of great healthy recipes that are absolutely delicious. Store-bought versions of Satay Sauce are typically full of unwanted additives, including highly processed sugars, trans fats, and loads of sodium. I use Island Nut Roastery Peanut Butter which contain only peanuts and is made in Sydney, BC. You can buy it at Country Grocer on Bowen Road, Nanaimo
(use organic ingredients where possible)
In a small saucepan, heat the coconut milk on low, add the nut butter and the rest of the ingredients and stir until combined. Once heated and a creamy consistency has been reached, the sauce is ready.
1 cup steamed vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots)
1 cup soaked and cooked quinoa. Soak quinoa in water for at least 4 hours or overnight then strain and cook in boiling water for 12-15 minutes. Drain and serve.
If you have any leftover sauce, place in an airtight container in the fridge. Good for veggie dipping.
Don't use a microwave to heat up leftovers. Just place some water in a pot, put in a steamer and pack on the leftovers. Turn the stove on medium and cover with lid. The steam heats it through in less than 6 minutes and doesn't kill off all the goodness left in the food. Yummy.
