This is our favorite peanut sauce. My Indonesian mother-in-law gave me the recipe. It’s great served on boiled mung bean sprouts. I put a pot of water to boil, add the mung bean sprouts and just bring back up to a boil, stir and drain.
We ate these with the mung bean sprouts and a cup of soba noodles tonight. Total calories per serving 384.
