RECIPE: Ultraversatile sweet and spicy Thai style peanut sauce
- 1/2 C PB2 powdered peanut butter or 1/2 c regular peanut butter
- Juice of one lime
- 2 garlic cloves
- 2 Tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
- 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
- 2 Tablespoons seasoned rice or sushi vinegar
- 1-3 tsp Scorpion Honey
- 1 tsp ginger paste
- Optional: rough chopped cilantro
If you want to be a little extra and bring all the flavors out, heat the sesame oil up in a small frying pan and lightly fry the garlic and ginger paste in it. Combine all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth.
If you're in a hurry, chuck it all in the blender or food processor and go. No rules in this imaginary kitchen we share, just flavors.
You can also blend the cilantro into it or sprinkle on top as garnish.
This stuff is great. It’s a good salad dressing. It’s a great veggie dip, spring roll and satay accompaniment. You can also stir fry some rice noodles and bean sprouts in this sauce for a fast faux-pad-thai to satisfy that peanut-umami-lime craving.
