I made this scrumptious dinner tonight using left over Peanut Thai sauce, Turkey and Yams. You will absolutely love this quick and easy dinner.
Make the peanut Thai sauce
Here is the recipe for the amazing sauce that you should probably double because it is so good and can be used multiple ways.
Peanut Thai Sauce
A flavorful peanut sauce made with coconut milk and lime
- 3 Cups unsweetened coconut milk
- 3/4 Cup Smooth Peanut Butter
- 1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1/3 Cup Soy Sauce
- 1 1/2 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
- 1 small onion diced
- 2 Tbsp shallots minced
- 2 Tbsp garlic minced
- 1/4 Cup Red Curry Paste
- 1 Tbsp Lemongrass 3 stalks
- 3 leaves Kaffir Lime or 1 tsp chopped lime zest
- 2 Cups Cilantro minced
- 1/3 Cup Basil Minced
- Cook all ingredients in a pan until heated through.
Directions for turkey and yams
This sauce and turkey topping is so versatile and can be made to top rice or pasta. You can even cut up the yams and sauté them with the ground turkey and add a can of beans and top it over the rice or pasta.
This sounds amazing! I love Thai food and I like the twist of serving this over sweet potatoes. It was nice to” meet you” through Friendship Friday
