Peanut Sauce

I love, love peanut sauce. When I don't really know what to make for dinner or I'm not really feeling all that motivated I whip a batch of peanut sauce up...anything under it tastes divine.

1 cup peanut butter
1 small can of coconut milk (I always use the low fat version)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
dash of salt
dash of pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried basil

Put all items in a sauce pan and over medium heat whisk until it is creamy. It you want a thinner sauce add more milk, it's that simple. As you can see I served mine with green beans and leftover chicken breasts over rice. And if you have kids just skip the cayenne and I'm sure they will be members of the clean plate club tonight.

Yumm-O. That peanut sauce sounds really delicious. BTW, I made the smashed chickpea salad over the weekend and it was quite tasty. It would probably be even better with kalamata olives instead of California salad olives, but the former weren't cheap at the Co-op.

If my tummy liked peanuts better that would be delish1 I have a yen for rice tonight and that would be sublime with it. Oh well, I'll find something to serve with the rice.
