What does ‘through garlic’ mean exactly?
Jess is correct. You don’t add the peanuts to the sauce because they are optional.
(Through garlic) means the 5 ingredients including the garlic.
So when it says:
For sauce, in a bowl whisk together the next five ingredients (through garlic) and ¼ cup water until smooth.
It means mix these five ingredients including the garlic together.
2 tablespoons natural peanut butter
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon date paste
1 clove garlic, minced
I’m so confused. Do you shred the squash before or after steaming? Is the zucchini raw or cooked? Could someone please help fill in the blanks?
Hi…seems like the butternut squash is shredded first, then steamed, zucchini is raw but sliced very thinly. That’s what I’m getting from the recipe.
