Spicy Nut Butter Sauce

Sauce for Steamed Veggies or Salad Dressing

2 T almond or cashew butter
1 teaspoon sesame oil (optional, just changes the flavor a little)
1 scoop pea protein powder (optional)
1 T fresh grated ginger
2 cloves fresh crushed garlic
1 T chili-garlic sauce (I love Sambal or the Vietnamese chili sauce with the rooster on the front).
Add water - Thin to desired consistency. If you make it too thin, add some flax meal to thicken it up again.
Salt to taste (the original recipe used soy-sauce)

This works great on a salad with spinach and coleslaw mix (I buy the already shredded mix). Add some chopped pea pods, green onions, mushrooms, cauliflower, broccoli, and whatever else you like. If you want to up the protein/fiber even more, add white or black beans, they work well with this sauce. I would do this if I didn't have the protein powder in the sauce.

The above mix can be stir-fried or cold. Put the sauce on top and serve in a bowl. If served hot, you can add 1/2 cup or so of brown rice to the bowl before adding the veggies and the sauce.
