We keep making this Thai Peanut Sauce because it has tons of flavor and leaves veggie haters going back for seconds. We recommend steamed broccoli and mushrooms over a layer of cooked brown rice, topped with a generous scoop of sauce. For more flavor and texture, garnish with green onions, peanuts and red pepper flakes.
