When it comes to vegetarian or vegan, you end up losing a lot of taste or surprises when it comes to food. You get bored with the taste because really, you’re close to being on a raw food diet and feel restricted. Well, the secret to a successful vegetarian or vegan dish is actually in how you dress it up. Peanut sauce is something you can whip up really quickly on the fly and for cheap. Use it for ‘chikin’ (vegetarian imitation chicken), noodles, stir fry and other dishes.
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/3 cup of natural peanut butter (avoid peanut butter with excess sugar or high fructose corn syrup)
2 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
1 packet sugar substitute (Equal, Splenda, Sweet N Low, Truvia, etc.)
1/3 cup water
A dash of cayenne pepper
1. Mix all of the ingredients in a microwavable dish (not plastic due to BPA threat). Stir well and microwave for 30 seconds.
2. Pour over ‘chikin’, noodles, stir fry or whatever your dish is.
3. Act like you’ve slaved away on a dish that took you no time and effort at all to prepare. Amaze your family and friends with your Rachel Ray-like cooking skills.
