This recipe is something that you can whip up when you have very little food on hand and don't want to run all the way to the store. This carrot dish and Thai peanut sauce is very easy to recreate and is perfect for a busy night where you don't feel like fussing too long over your dinner. It's quite filling as a side dish but it also pairs quite well with Thai curry or rice or another whole grain for a full meal.
- 3 tbsp oil
- 3 tbsp water (or veggie broth, + 2 tbsp)
- 1/2 yellow or white onion (chopped)
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 3 tbsp Thai peanut sauce (or salad dressing)
- 1 tbsp vinegar (white or apple cider)
- 1 tbsp lime juice (lime is better, but lemon may be substituted)
- 2 cups chopped carrots
- Optional: 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
In a small bowl, mix together the peanut sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, 2 tablespoons of water or broth and lime juice and set aside.
Sautee the onion in 3 tablespoons oil and 3 tablespoons broth or water until slightly soft.
Add the carrots, cover, and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes. Reduce heat, add the sauce mix, cover and simmer another 5 to 7 minutes until carrots are soft, stirring frequently.
Add sesame seeds and cook one more minute, if desired. Serve over rice or other grain if desired, and enjoy!
