I bought a Vegetti a couple of weeks ago, and decided to make a “pasta” dish using zucchini instead of pasta. You can eat it raw or boil it, like real pasta. I did both. I hadn’t planned on trying both, but when I boiled the zucchini, it really shrunk down in size! I had to quickly use the Vegetti and make some more, but decided to try it raw. Turns out we prefer it raw! The boiling makes them TOO soft. My husband said he didn’t really like the boiled version, but when he added some hot sauce to the raw version, it was 100 times better! This sauce turned out okay. My kids didn’t love it (surprisingly), but we liked it. This recipe came from the little recipe book that came with my Vegetti.
Peanut Sesame Sauce
1/2 cup smooth or chunky peanut butter
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup warm water
2 tbsp chopped, peeled fresh ginger
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
2 tbsp rice wine or cider vinegar
1 1/2 tbsp Asian or dark sesame oil
2 tsp honey
1 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
1 scallion, chopped
1 tbsp chili oil (optional)
Soften peanut butter in microwave for 15-20 seconds on high. In a large bowl, whisk together peanut butter, soy sauce, water, ginger, garlic, vinegar, sesame oil, honey, and (optional) chili oil. Toss in your favorite vegetable pasta, sesame seeds, and scallions. Serve immediately.
