Peanut and Paneer Barbecue

Yippeedoodleday..and some daft dancing around!! :-D I just created a new dish for lunch today, what fun!! I'm writing it down for you while its still fresh in my mind! :-)

Ingredients and method:

680 gm pressed paneer, sliced into medium thin strips (approx 1 inch long, 1/2 an inch wide, 3mm thick)

Bake in preheated oven at 385 degrees Fahrenheit til deep golden brown - but not dried out, turn slices over to bake more if necessary.
Remove from heat and set aside.


Blend together the following ingredients til smooth:

400 gm plain unsalted tomato sauce
Approx 150 - 200 gm smooth plain peanut butter (unsalted and no additives)
3 TBSP apple cider vinegar to taste
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 - 1/2 cup maple syrup to taste
2-3 tsp liquid smoke
3 TBSP dried basil (optional)
2-3 tsp blk pepper
2 tsp asafoetida
2-3 tsp paprika
3 tsp cumin powder
2-3 TBSP sea salt to taste

Pour the sauce over the baked paneer (in a baking dish obviously! I used a glass dish).
Coat the paneer evenly with the sauce.
Sprinkle a generous helping of red paprika flakes over the top, and bake in preheated oven til sauce thickens and begins to darken along the edges. Approx 20 mins - 1/2 hr. Avoid over-baking or the sauce will become too thick.

Delicious and very filling! :-) Serves 4-6 depending on how hungry you are, lol! :-)
Great served hot with rice, a vegetable dish, and a salad on the side.
