I’m beginning to develop a little bit of a reputation.
I wish my reputation was something like:
“There’s Holley. She’s a fast runner.”
Or “There’s Holley. She’s a good driver.”
Or “There’s Holley. She’s super fashionable.”
I, unfortunately, am none of those things. I do, however, love peanut butter. And that’s apparently what is beginning to define me:
“There’s Holley. That girl who loves peanut butter.”
It probably has something to do with the links that I share with people? 29 ways to eat peanut butter at every meal? Don’t mind if I do!
Maybe it has to do with the copious amounts of peanut butter based recipes I post:
It’s become commonplace for friends to bring me recipes that include my favorite ingredient. (Thanks,Renee!)
So I really hesitated about sharing this very simple recipe. I didn’t even take pictures of it, because it was such a last minute, “throw it together” mixture that it didn’t seem worth it. Also, I was really hungry and didn’t want to wait.
But then, after I ate some, and realized how delicious it was and remembered how easy it was, I couldn’t help myself.
And then I took a picture of the leftovers I ate for lunch.
And I will embrace my identity. I will be the peanut butter girl. In fact, I will be super peanut butter girl and all the world will breathe a sigh of relief, knowing that I am the ultimate resource for all things peanut butter.
You’re in good hands.
Easy Peanut Sauce
2 TBS peanut butter
2 TBS olive oil
1 TBS maple syrup
1 TBS Bragg’s liquid aminos
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp chili sauce
1/4 cup water
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. The Bragg’s makes this pretty salty, but it’s not meant to be used strictly as a dip. Mixed in with noodles and vegetables or tofu, it’s the perfect concentration.
