My homemade peanut sauce is packed with healthy fats and SO unbelievably good. My family quite literally puts in on everything. In stir fry, on rice noodles, lettuce wraps, the list goes on. You can make a whole batch for whatever you're cooking up or you can make this sauce ahead of time and store it in a jar for later.
- 6-8 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce (or coconut aminos)
- 1/2 - 1 cup low sodium chicken/vegetable broth
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons sriracha
- 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
1. Place the peanut butter in a pan on low-medium heat. Let it begin melting for a few minutes.
2. Once the peanut butter has begun melting, add in the soy sauce, broth, oil, and seasonings. Mix to combine.
I highly recommend tasting as you go along. The amount of each ingredient you use may vary depending on personal preferences. If you want the sauce thinner, you may need more peanut butter (or less broth). You may want more or less soy sauce. If you like your food real spicy, I'd add in more red pepper flakes. Tasting as you go will allow you to perfect the sauce to your liking!
This makes enough sauce for one full box of rice noodles with chicken and vegetables tossed in (a personal favorite of mine) which is approximately 8-10 servings. You can adjust the recipe as needed.
