...then again, I'd eat peanut sauce on anything...

Happy Monday~
Today, in my search for healthy snack options {Natalie would be so proud} I stumbled upon the following: a broccoli & peanut sauce recipe.

Could this be? I LOVE {uncooked} broccoli and I LOVE LOVE LOVE peanut sauce {thanks to my dear friend Anh } how could I go wrong with the combination? :)

So here is the recipe, compliments of Let me know what you think! :)

Broccoli and Peanut Sauce Recipe

(serves 6)
2 pounds broccoli
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar (unseasoned will work)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
1 minced garlic clove (optional)
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger (optional)

Separate broccoli into stems and florets. Peel and chop stems. Steam broccoli in a steamer over boiling water for 3 to 5 minutes (or your favorite way to cook broccoli). Mix peanut butter, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, minced garlic, and ginger in a small bowl.

If you keep your peanut butter in the refrigerator, you will probably need to heat it for 30 seconds to get it to mix with the other liquids. Stir vigorously until combined. Serve broccoli with peanut sauce in small bowl on the side. Enjoy!
