This recipe came about because I had some olive tapenade yesterday which was outstanding and some olives in the fridge.
I then spotted some peanut butter in the kitchen, and came up with a brilliant idea to mix them up.
I looked for recipes online, but didn’t find anything. So I think I can safely say this is an original. :))))
So here is what happened today.
OLIVE AND PEANUT BUTTER DIP
What you need:
Two tablespoons of sliced olives
Two tablespoons of peanut butter
Salt to taste
Juice of half a lemon
4-5 sprigs of basil
5-6 cloves of garlic
10 roasted peanuts to garnish
What to do:
Just blend everything together. Then garnish with the roasted peanuts. You can crush them if you want.
Enjoy on toast or on apples!
So today I had absolutely no idea what to cook, so I literally googled ‘vegan dishes’ and came across peanut salad on one of the big food websites. I didn’t save the one I came across first, so I googled again. TMI but still. TMI = too much information 😀
Anyway so here is the recipe source: awesome source
Seriously you can just read the recipe for the exact measurements, but I couldn’t find creamy peanut butter so I put in crunchy, which tbh was better. So what went in for the dressing, (what I remember went in) is : a lot of peanut butter (4-5 tablespoons) , white wine vinegar (it asked for red I subbed with white), soy sauce, sesame oil, mustard, salt, chilli flakes etc
The vegetable that went in were cucumber, one red pepper, and spring onions.
Noodles were veg Hakka noodles, the recipe called for spaghetti though.
The method is just to mix the chop the veggies, make the dressing, and then put the dressing over the veggies. Then boil the noodles, drain them, add a mini bit of oil, and add to the other mix.
Easy and so so good. :)))
