Thai peanut sauce with veggies and tofu
This meal is a great way to make a lot of people very happy (and healthy) with a low carbon footprint—it is ridiculously delicious and easy to throw together. You can lay out rice or noodles, steamed veggies, and peanut sauce in individual bowls so each person can make a creation. Or, to keep things simpler, just throw veggies into the boiling noodles for the amount of time you’d like and drain it all together. While all of that is cooking, you can warm up the peanut sauce, and you’ve got a great weekday meal on your hands. Go ahead and make a double batch of peanut sauce—it freezes well.
