I haven’t been posting very regularly lately, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been cooking. I have a backlog of stuff to post, starting with this lovely recipe.

I love peanut sauce and I love broccoli slaw, so why not bring the two together? I’ve never been a big fan of mayo-drenched coleslaw, so this is a great alternative. Enjoy with veggie egg rolls or pot stickers!

Asian-Inspired Peanut Slaw

3-1/2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons tamari sauce
2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons agave nectar
Dash tabasco
12 oz bag broccoli slaw (or cole slaw)

Whisk together everything but the broccoli slaw until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning, if needed. Toss with broccoli slaw until evenly coated and serve.

Variation: For a fruity twist, toss in a drained 8 oz. can of crushed pineapple. You could also throw in a few tablespoon of chopped peanuts for some crunch.

Yesterday, I had this for breakfast:

Actual produce, people!

A big, juicy apple (Fuji, I think) and almond butter. I love apples and nut butter, and I haven’t had this combo in so long. Perfect breakfast. I should definitely have it more often. Definitely got me out of the breakfast rut I’ve been in.

Tonight was either an Asian Food Orgy or Let’s-See-What’s-in-the-Freezer-and-Make-That-Because-It’s-Waaaay-Past-Grocery-Day Night. I made fried rice with extra brown rice I cooked on Sunday, carrots, onion and peas, then threw some egg rolls in the over and stir-fried some organic potstickers.

Tired of seeing this plate and this place mat?

Not the most ground-breaking meal ever, but it was tasty and cleared some needed room in the freezer. 😛

Making tonight’s simple fried rice, got me thinking about concocting a slightly more elaborate version of fried rice, maybe with some edamame thrown in and tofu “egg” like take-out fried rice. I may toy around with this this weekend. My husband is always more than happy to consume copious amounts of fried rice. I think I’d like to try substituing tamari for the soy sauce as well. I used to love soy sauce, but four or five years ago, I got to where the taste really grossed me out if it was too strong.

Tomorrow I’ll have a super simple tea party-esque froo-froo type sandwich worthy of any tea party or girly potluck brunch. In the meantime, enjoy this vat of fried rice.
