Thai Peanut Sauce

I am always looking for new and creative ways to feed my children their vegetables. I also try to get them to experiment with new flavors. Their taste buds are still very young but I feel that the earlier I start them on a variety of flavors, the better.

This sauce was the first way I got my oldest to eat broccoli and enjoy it (she was 2 or 3 years old at the time). It has worked every single time, with all three of my children. My oldest now loves broccoli, and my middle child is very close behind. My youngest, who just turned one, had his first try of broccoli with this peanut sauce. He could not get enough!

Thai Peanut Sauce (Kid-Friendly)

1 large onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 c. creamy peanut butter
3/4 c. hoisin
1 Tbsp. agave
2 Tbsp. ketchup
1/2 c. water

1. In a medium saucepan, saute the onions and garlic in oil until soft. 
2. Add peanut butter, hoisin, agave, and ketchup. Mix well.
3.  Add water and mix until well combined. Continue cooking until heated through.
4. Serve with broccoli or spring rolls.
