I made this for the lettuce wraps on Sunday and it makes a really large amount of sauce. I suggest not only using this for a sauce on the side kind of meal, but also feel free to put it on some rice noodles. It would also be great to turn it into a chicken satay dipping sauce.
Or… after you taste this amazingness you might be happy just eating it with a spoon straight out of the bowl.
- 1 tsp. chili oil
- T tsp. Veggie oil
- 2 tbsp. chopped ginger
- 2 tbsp. chopped garlic
- 1 can light coconut milk
- ½ cup – ¾ cup of PB – NO NATURAL PB – its too oily to cook with
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Heat the oils in a small sauce pan. Once hot, add the garlic and ginger and sauté until translucent. Add the coconut milk and once it’s hot add the PB. Wisk until all combined. The heat from the sauce will melt the PB. Once all combined taste it. If it needs something more due to your palette, add it, such as siracha sauce, more chili oil, or even a little hint of lemon.
Put in a bowl, over rice, pasta or chicken and serve!
So if you follow thatszogood, by now you’ve realized my obsession with all things dessert. So when I say this is one of the top 5 best desserts I have ever consumed you know i mean business.
The dessert pictured is a Peanut Butter Marshmallow “cakewich” from a company called Cake Monkey. They don’t have their own store but they sell locally to places like Umami and Cabbage Patch, but of course they have a large array of desserts (often mini size) on their website www.cakemonkey.com
It starts with this hard chocolate shell which is only there to cage in the gooey pb and marshmallow, heavenly sandwiched in between the moistest yellow cake. The proportions in this perfect sandwich are so appropriate that by the end of your bites you realize you’ve had just the right amount of everything you could ever want.
I wish I could eat one of Cake Monkey’s mini desserts every single day till the end of time. Seriously, check out their website. Maybe order some for your next party, whatever or whenever it may be!
