Recipe: Teryaki Peanut Sauce With Vegetables

This is one of my favorite quick meals. I combined a few sauce recipes, tweaked some things, and came up with this one day for dinner. I serve it over steamed rice.

Ingredients:

1TB oil
1/2 sweet onion (scallions are also yummy)
1/4 c. peanuts
1 can dole pinapple, juice reserved
1 large carrot chopped or julienne
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. ginger (or fresh grated is fabulous)

In a large skillet, heat oil on medium high. Add onion and saute until tender, about 2 minutes. Add peanuts and carrot, and cook for another five minutes. In a separate bowl, combine the brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger and peanut butter--mix until sugar is dissolved. Turn heat to low, add the sugar mixture and drained pineapple, and simmer for 10 minutes. Add reserved pineapple juice as needed for the consistency you want. Serve over rice and enjoy!
