One of his good friends used to be vegan and passed along this recipe. When he told me about it I was skeptical because I really wondered how something vegan could be good, but this really was! In honor of Meatless Monday I thought it would be worth going above and beyond and have a VEGAN Meatless Monday, which in turn leads us to the first edition of Nick Cooks - he even took pictures!
1 cup of peanut butter
1 -1/2 cup of coconut oil (or a 14 oz can works too)
1 teaspoon cooking oil (veggie oil)
2 teaspoons crushed garlic
1 teaspoon grated/finely chopped ginger root
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup lime juice
Zest of 2 limes (not required by recommended)
1/2 bunch of fresh cilantro
Hot sauce to taste - 12 dashes
Fresh scallions and peanuts to garnish
Nick also knows I am crazy so he went ahead and cut everything up and took a lovely picture.
