The BrokeAss Gourmet teaches life skills with a side of peanut sauce
As with much of her food writing, the concept came from a personal experience. She was invited to a potluck dinner party a few years back and the host asked her to bring a main course. "I had this huge batch of pizza dough and 15 minutes before I was supposed to leave, the host called to say the party was canceled. I was like, 'ah man, I have all this stuff!' and I'd basically spent my grocery budget on it, but I found that I could do a million and a half things with pizza dough."
While she did make a great many dishes with that leftover dough, her weekly go-to meal staple is a bit different. She has a $15.94 Duc Loi Supermarket trip nailed (of course, did a post about it). And her personal comfort dish is built with it: soba or rice noodles with that crush-worthy peanut sauce, shredded vegetables, and shallow-fried cube sprouted tofu. Sometimes garnished with crushed peanuts or sprouts and chili paste.
"I'll make a big batch of it and seal it in the fridge if I'm having a busy week, and then that's just what I'll eat at the end of the day." Even as the conversation comes to an end, and the Dolores Park Cafe dishes are pushed aside, Moskowitz is still giving tips on low-cost eats.
