Noodles with PeaNOT Sauce

By Ange's Table

Hey there.  How are you doing today?

I came across a new item while shopping a few weeks ago.  Coconut manna, also known as coconut butter.  This is different than coconut oil.  It’s like peanut butter!!  Oh boy, the foods I’m gonna make!

We have talked in the past about trying to re-create the flavors we love and miss the most.  Asian flavors have to be at the very top of my list.  

There was this dish I used to get all the time, dumplings with a spicy sesame sauce.  I literally could lick that bowl clean.  But it has been 7 years, and no more sesame sauce for Angela.  How sad.

Another thing I miss is peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  So I thought this coconut manna would be awesome to replace that.  And my toast with coconut butter and jelly was oh so good.  And that got me thinking.  What else can I use this coconut manna in place of.  My creative wheels started turning.  My possibilities are endless.  Get ready family for all the peaNOT and no sesame sesame creations coming your way!

First up, Noodles with PeaNOT sauce.  I used freeze dried spices for this recipe.  You could use fresh if you have them.  I don’t always finish my ginger when I find it at the local store, and this brand of freeze dried herbs and spices are really yummy.

If you try to use coconut oil in place of the coconut manna in this recipe, it will not work.  Coconut manna is the whole coconut, blended together.
