IntroductionPeanut sauce is one of my favorite things to eat, usually with tofu, green vegetables (like broccoli, spinach and edamame) and brown rice. Peanut sauce is one of my favorite things to eat, usually with tofu, green vegetables (like broccoli, spinach and edamame) and brown rice.
1/4 cup natural peanut butter (creamy variety)
2 Tbsp tamari soy sauce (use low-sodium variety if you prefer)
1-2 garlic cloves, minced (use a little or a lot)
1/8 tsp grated ginger root (optional)
1/3 cup warm water
For a spicy sauce, consider adding chili power or sauce, cayenne powder, more garlic and/or ginger, or any of your favorite spices.
After searching low and high for a good, healthy store-bought one, I gave up and created my own. Adjust spices to your taste preferences--this can be mild or spicy! Either way, it's easy to make and cheaper than store-bought sauces.
Place all ingredients into a small bowl.
Whisk until blended.
Serve over your warmed food. Enjoy!
Cover and refrigerate to keep this for several weeks--may need to be re-stirred or heated after refrigeration.
