I have some green beans and some zucchini from the garden, and I want to make dinner.
I was thinking of a stir fry with an onion and some tempeh and a grain on the side (or mixed in), but I'm stumped on the sauce.
What would the PPK do for a sauce?

Thanks!

if you want a stir fry style sauce as opposed to a bowl sauce topping, maybe the PPK cast iron stir fry sauce? I feel like it is a good base that can be doctored up to your liking. Like adding sriracha.

The base of my go-to bowl sauce was swiped from something Isa posted: Mix equal parts tahini and mellow white miso, stir in water a little at a time until you get the right consistency. Then add whatever flavor you want: roasted garlic like in the original, or a bit of sriracha, or blend in a chipotle and a bit of adobo, whatever, depending on what you're paring it with. You can swap out the tahini for some other seed or nut butter, too: peanut butter, for example, plus white miso and a bit of curry paste makes something vaguely like Thai peanut sauce.

I'd think a sauce of tahini, miso, and just a bit of preserved lemon would go well with sauteed zucchini, green beans, tempeh, and grains.

This was going to be my suggestion. We usually add lemon or lemon juice instead of water (and no other flavors). So good!

I 9000% support HDog's suggestion.

I also use the Cesar Chavez dressing and the Goddess dressing from AFR for basically EVERYTHING.

Ohhh that sounds excellent! I'll try it with the lemon juice.
Thanks!

Yes, miso-tahini sauce is fantastic and my go to for this kind of thing. Like previously stated I do 50/50 tahini and miso then lemon juice to get the right consistency. I also like to add a little garlic and a splash of tamari.
