Off the Heezy Inventive Thai Pasta

Hey all!  It's been a long time since I posted, but I promise, this simple, affordable one-serving wonder makes it all worth it.  I recently moved to Chicago--literally yesterday--and tonight decided to cook up something tasty, cheap, and good for me.

Now, I call it Thai, but in all honesty it's just an almond butter dressing with some Asian influence.  My boyfriend enjoyed picking at my dish so much he insisted I call it Off the Heezy, and when a carnivore endorses it, you know it's got some yum factor. The ingredients are scaled to one but feel free to double, triple, sixtuple...?  Tweak it and enjoy!

Thai Sauce:

1 Tbsp Creamy Salted Almond Butter (Trader Joe's is a delicious, affordable brand)
1 Tbsp Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce
1/4 tsp minced garlic (again, Thank you Mr. T. Joe)
1 tsp brown rice syrup (for a bit of sweetness)

Cook up some pasta or rice (I used penne), steam some broccoli, throw in a couple fingerfuls of black olives, then toss with the sauce, and you have this lovely dish:

For dessert, I think...dark chocolate covered cranberries?  Yes, please.
