PEANUT SAUCE

PEANUT SAUCE

Ingredients
1/2 cup salted creamy peanut butter* (or almond butter or sunflower butter)
2-3 Tbsp gluten-free tamari (if not gluten-free sub soy sauce // if soy-free sub coconut aminos*)
1-2 Tbsp maple syrup (or other sweetener of choice)
1 tsp sweet or spicy Chili sauce 
2-3 Tbsp lime juice

~1/4 cup Water (to thin)
In a medium mixing bowl add peanut butter, tamari (or soy sauce or coconut aminos), maple syrup, lime juice, chili sauce (or chili or red pepper), and whisk to combine. Add water a little at a time until a thick but pourable sauce is achieved.  Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more maple syrup for sweetness, chili garlic sauce (or red chili or red pepper) for heat, lime juice for acidity, or tamari for saltiness. If your sauce has become too thin, add more nut butter. If it’s too thick, thin with more water. For a fun flavor twist, add some fresh grated ginger to taste.  Perfect for salads, spring rolls, noodle dishes, and more! Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator up to 1 week.
