I had it before on veggies at a resturant, but I had no idea how these veggies were prepared.



Anyone have any advice what to do with peanut sauce?

With noodles (like udon, or linguine, or vemicelli) and some tofu. That's what sounds good, to me, I've never done it.

I love peanut sauce. I love it on sandwiches, salads, as a dipping sauce, microwaved/ steamed/ canned/ raw vegetables, rice, pasta, baked potatoes, tofu, etc. I've even used it as a pizza sauce before, in place of tomato or pesto sauce.

Dude thats like my favorite sauce ever. My fav way is really simple. with fussili,broccoli,crispy pan fried tofu...just pour on the peanut sauce. You could also make tofu satay and dip them in the peanut sauce.

I love it as a sauce in stir-frys and I especially love it as a dipping sauce. If you have a Whole Foods in your area, try dunking the BBQ tofu dumplings in peanut sauce, it just may rock your world!

Peanut sauce can be easily made by melting some peanut butter and mixing in soy sauce (start low and add, depending on how peanutty you want it) and a little sweetener. Thin with water. A little garlic and some chopped scallions work nicely. If you want specific proportions, a quick web search for "peanut sauce recipe" will serve you well.



The other suggestions for uses are very good, but here's another: thai pizza! Use your favorite pizza crust, and use peanut sauce in place of tomato sauce. Chop purple cabbage and carrots, and mix it in to the sauce layer with some sprouts. Top with grilled tofu, shredded Follow-Your-Heart mozarella, and some cilantro, and bake.

Drink it from the bottle.



It's also good with fried tofu.

Yes, too much soy sauce will make it salty. If it comes out that way, simply add more a little water or, using some of the recipes linked here, some coconut milk or rice vinegar.
