Spicy Peanut Sauce

This is quite a popular little number among my family and friends, with thousands of variations.  Super yum.

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 c. peanut butter (I like chunky)
  • 2 T. soy sauce
  • 1 t. ginger
  • 1/2 t. cayenne
  • 1/2 c. chicken broth
  • 1-3 packets of Ramen Noodles, cooked (throw out that MSG-laden seasoning packet, yuck!)
  • frozen veggies, stir fry style (throw in enough for the size of your family)
  • 4 oz. bean sprouts (opt.)
  • 2 T. fresh cilantro, if fancied

Directions:
1. Heat up chicken broth (1/2 t. chicken bouillon and 1/2 c. water in my case - no MSG here!)
2. Using a whisk or fork, beat in peanut butter until smooth.
3. Add soy sauce, ginger and red pepper to peanut sauce (Adjust spices to your taste and make sure they are evenly distributed/mixed throughout the sauce).
4. Heat some olive oil in a pan and add your frozen veggies.
5. Add the cooked Ramen noodles when veggies are not-so-frozen, and stir fry the lovely pair.
6. Toss peanut sauce with said lovely pair, or leave it on the side for people to add their desired amount. Sprinkle with cilantro.
7. Serve with tissues ('cause your nose might be running).

Be careful with the heat Mrs. Preggers (and for Gracie's sake, too)!

This was surprisingly good. I first looked at the ingredients and thought it sounded weird, but made it anyway because it was the only recipe that I had all the ingredients for. I also used fresh and frozen veggies. Very good. I will make it again.
