Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Serves: 4


Thai Sauce Base

3 tablespoons fish sauce (or olive oil)
1 tablespoon lime juice plus 1 teaspoon grated zest from 1 lime
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes

For Broccoli

3/4 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
1 tablespoon peanut oil plus 1 more teaspoon
1 large red bell pepper (about 8 ounces), cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch strips
9 ounces broccoli , cut into even 1-inch florets (about 4 cups)
