We are glad Ezra likes “butter.” As a vegetarian it is a great source of protein, but you can only eat so many peanut butter sandwiches. Fortunately, peanut butter is pretty flexible. We often add peanut butter along with coconut milk to stir-fry or stews. This simple recipe mixes peanut butter with salsa. We thought this was a great way to add more fruits and vegetables to Ezra's meals. The salsa immediately adds a few vegetables, and the dip is perfect for dunking apples and green peppers. Will Ezra like two of his favorite foods combined?
We have been using this recipe for peanut sauce, given to us by a couple of our good friends, for years. Served with bread, apples, vegetables, or really pretty much anything, this delicious and simple sauce makes a wonderful quick snack or hors d’oeuvre.
