Featured Recipe: The Perfect Peanut Sauce
These summerspring rolls are pretty much perfect for this time of year. Why? Because there’s so much delicious local produce coming in from our farmers to stuff inside those rice wraps (now available here!). This recipe comes from our former Marketing Manager and Blogger, Chelsea. Enjoy!
1/8 cup Thai red chili paste (or try blending up kimchi w/ the cider vinegar)
½ cup natural creamy peanut butter
¼ tbsp salt
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
¼ cup water
Dash of red pepper flakes
All you have to do is put everything into a pot and bring to a gentle boil over medium heat, whisking constantly. Let the mixture simmer, and make sure it doesn’t get burnt, as that’ll do some weird things to the coconut milk. No one wants curdled coconut milk. Let it cool and then eat to your hearts desire. I mixed in some red pepper flakes, because I love some extra spice.
Try it with some tofu fresh rolls, which is another go-to recipe. This version included green onion, avocado, tofu, red bell pepper, cucumber, grated carrots and thai basil. Yep, it was delicious.
Fun fact about fresh rolls; when you are preparing your rice paper, dip the paper in nearly boiling water. There’s no need to let it soak, just a dip in hot water will get them to the perfect texture. Learned that trick in Texas, of all places.
