meatless monday: ginger-peanut ramen


i’ll admit it i love ramen noodles. in fact i buy them in bulk at sam’s club, when you do the math it comes out 16 cents a package… damn! most the time i cook up what i refer to as “fancy ramen” stir-frying vegetables to toss in. of late i’ve been concocting my own asian inspired sauces and throwing out that packet of flavor that’s jam-packed full of sodium. my favorite sauce so far is peanut sauces. i could eat peanut butter every day. on this meatless monday i made up a ginger-peanut sauce to toss into the ramen noodles. to add a little spice i heated up some morning-star spicy buffalo vegetarian nuggets. its simple its cheap and it satisfies my cravings for the far east.



1/4 cup peanut butter

3 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp ginger

1/2 tbsp garlic powder

*in a small saucepan cook peanut butter, olive oil and soy sauce over low to medium heat. you are wanting to just slightly melt the peanut butter, cooking on too hot a temp will fry it into a disastrous paste. once the peanut butter as melted and forms a smooth creamy sauce add in the ginger and garlic powder. the sauce goes great over ramen or as a dipping sauce for crispy tofu! if you are wanted to spice it up add in 2 tsp crushed red pepper, for extra spicy 2 tsp of sarachia as well.
