I love peanut sauce with rice or stir-fry dishes, but I’m not overly fond of cooking it on the stove. This week I came up with a quick version that can be prepared in the microwave and is especially helpful when needing only a small amount.
– microwave safe mug or a similar container
– peanutbutter or (I use a Dutch brand which has some salt and sugar in it but is not as sweet and soft as other brands)
– Sambal Olek (or try mashed tomatoes plus spices)
Mix to your own liking (I’d suggest going easy on the Sambal Olek and water first) and microwave at 800 W for 30-60 seconds, stir it, add more water or hot stuff if needed, microwave for another 30-60 seconds and stirr again. Tadaa, instant awesome hot peanut sauce! :)
