That sure is a mouthful for a recipe title. Tonight's dinner was a wacky combination of Chinese and African cuisines. A couple years ago I made a Kwanzaa dinner. One of the entrées was a stuffed eggplant with peanut sauce. I was not that fond of the stuffed eggplant, but the peanut sauce was good. So today when I was trying to figure out what to cook for dinner, I ran across a tofu, spinach, and soba noodle salad. It was intriguing, but I didn't want a salad. For some reason, I thought the peanut sauce might work well with it. I think it turned out well. I should have halved the peanut sauce recipe. It also wouldn't hurt to put in a little more vegetables. Also, next time I'd like to try using only half a cup of peanut butter instead of the three quarter's cup.
