For the Peanut Sauce
1/4 cup natural organic peanut butter
1/4 cup warm water
2 tablespoons coconut milk (optional)
2 tablespoons local raw honey
1 large clove garlic
1 teaspoon fresh ginger
2 teaspoons serrano pepper
1 tablespoon cilantro
1 tablespoon organic tamari light
My organic vegetables of choice
Red cabbage (Finely sliced)
Red pepper (finely sliced)
Cucumber (thin slices)
Kale (finely sliced)
Fresh cilantro, mint and basil (roughly chopped)
1/2 package Rice noodles (cooked)
Note- This is not strict low carb but can be modified.
Add all of your peanut sauce ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
Add to a mason jar.
*Note, I would double up on the sauce, it is delicious and you can use it for other dishes throughout the week!
Put your rice noodles into a bowl and cover with boiling water. Allow the noodles to sit for a couple of minutes. Once tender, cool under cold water.
Mix some of the peanut sauce with the noodles and divide into serving bowls. Add your favourite vegetables and herbs to the top, and then finish your beautiful creation with a little more peanut sauce.
Cook Outside The Box
You could mix everything together and wrap everything up in a rice wrap
You could also add some cooked quinoa, organic chicken, organic beef or Ocean Wise approved shrimp to your bowl for extra protein.
Use brown rice instead of rice noodles, it does contain more fibre and is more nutrient dense than rice noodles
You could use almond butter instead of peanut butter for the sauce
Double the peanut sauce recipe and use it for BBQ chicken sate , roasted fish and even a dipping sauce for baked sweet potato fries.
