We’ve already offered you the tools to elevate your PB&J into adult fare. Today, we’re spicing it up, literally. Serious Eats brings us a new breed of peanut butter: the thai curry spread.

Made up of little else than roasted peanuts, red curry paste, and coconut milk powder, this spread is reminiscent of a traditional Thai satay sauce. (We made one in the test kitchen last week, and it took willpower not to eat it with a spoon.)

Intruiged? We’re not sure how well it would go with jelly, but we think it’d make for a happy companion to bread, right out of the toaster. Or, if instant gratification is your thing, right off of the spoon.

Nozlee, you've one-upped me. My first apartment meal was peanut butter too, but it was from a spoon, straight from the jar. Curry paste would have been a welcome addition. (As would some bread.)

It's a staple in my house. If I cave in to pasta...i use it to create the sauce!

Fun fact: the very first thing we cooked when we moved into our apartment two years ago was toast (broiled in the oven in a Pyrex pan) with peanut butter (spread with a plastic knife) and red curry paste (spread with a tiny coffee spoon). I'm sure the first meal I cooked after we got all the kitchen stuff out of storage tasted better, but this is the one I remember.
