My post about the crazy spaghetti hotdogs has elicited a couple of hilarious comments. In an email response I had a brainstorm for a great healthy alternative for moms (or anyone else) who loves the idea but doesn't eat hot dogs: tofu and soba noodles. Construct the creatures following the hotdog idea and dress with a sesame peanut sauce (I'll put a recipe below). Garnish with some sliced green onions. If you only use the green part of the onions, they're fairly mild and kiddies probably won't mind. There you go - healthy crazy food!
Sesame Peanut Sauce
1 Tbsp peanut butter
2 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
Mix it up. Add oil to thin, soy sauce to salt.
These amounts are pretty much a shot in the wind guess, but it gets the proportions about right.
So - if you give this a try, please let me know how it goes! Of course, I could always consider trying recipes before posting them.
