Easy Peanut Sauce

As requested by Danielle below.  I actually took measurements and meant to write this out because it was some awesome peanut sauce!

Easy Peanut Sauce

  • 4 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • juice of one lime
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1/2 – 1 clove minced garlic (depends on how garlicy you want your sauce, I used 1 fat clove)
  • 3 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon tahini (if you don’t have it, add another tablespoon of peanut butter and another teaspoon of sesame oil)
  • water

To Do:

  1. Combine all of the ingredients except the water in a blender and blend until a smooth paste is formed.
  2. Add water until the paste reaches the consistency you want.  You could also store the paste in a jar and add water, as necessary, for whatever recipe you need the sauce for.  For example, to make a dressing for salad, you would add more water; to make a spread for a sandwich, add less or none!
  3. Store in airtight container for up to a week.

    Now I need to get a bunch of vegetables for dinner tomorrow, we already have rice noodles.

    I’ve never added lime juice to mine. Must try that. Or tahini. But I do add ginger and a small squirt of sriaracha.

    We had it for dinner tonight over plain old spaghetti, with toasted sesame seeds, chopped up cucumber and sweet red pepper. Can you say YUM!

  4. […] $1.50 – Buckwheat soba noodles (maybe to make Bittman’s Green Tea Broth with Noodles or some noodles with peanut sauce) […]
