Instructions
  1. Combine in kettle, careful to dissolve cornstarch before cooking.
  2. Cook and stir until thickened. The density of your coconut milk will vary, so If your sauce turns out on the thicker side, add a tablespoon of water.
  3. Serve over vegetables as in the “Swimming Angel”–fresh spinach, and cubed firm tofu, over brown rice (The tofu can be eaten plain, “cooked” in a nonstick pan or “baked” in the oven to absorb extra moisture and firm it up). Also delicious over steamed broccoli and whole-grain angel-hair pasta or spaghetti. The warmed sauce may be eaten over salads such as freshly grated cabbage, carrots and sliced spinach, or a chopped kale salad mix served on a bed of rice. Your imagination is the limit!
Recipe Notes

If you are using regular peanut butter, it can be very high in sodium, so you may want to make an adjustment in the soy sauce. I prefer using the unsalted nut butters because the soy sauce adds a lot of flavor to this dish.
