Pasta

My garden is doing so excellently this year! I think it’s because I’ve been”sneak composting” Not supposed to compost where I currently live so I sneak outside early in the morning and bury my compost.  As a result, my soil is rich and full of worms and very happy. I’ve growing way more veggies than I can eat and so I get to share with friends. My broccoli just went crazy and I’ve been coming up with new ways to prepare it. This is probably my favorite way. This cooks up in about 15 to 20 minutes.

Ingredients:

1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped broccoli

2-3 cloves diced garlic

2 Tablespoons Housin sauce

1/2 cup peanuts

1/4 cup peanut butter

1/4 to 1/2 cup veggie sauce

1 tablespoon Olive oil

2 servings pasta–I like fettuccine

Directions:

Add olive oil to pan and heat. Add peanuts and garlic. Sautee until lightly browned and aromatic. Add veggie broth and Housin sauce and stir well. Simmer for a few minutes, then whisk in the peanut butter. Remove from heat. Steam broccoli and cook pasta. Drain and plate pasta. Add broccoli and top with the peanut sauce. (I also sauteed some tempeh to top the peanut sauce, which is optional. I love love tempeh and include it in many recipes.)

Serve and enjoy!
