After the delicious Thai dinner that my friend Stephanie made me, I was on a bit of a Thai kick. Amy showed me a Spicy Peanut Sauce recipe that she had whipped up, and I knew I had to try making my own.
I played with the proportions a lot, because mine started out really thick. I also added chili paste, and skipped out on the cilantro. It still only ended up being 5-ingredients, so you know I love it.
Spicy Peanut SauceMakes ~1/2 cup sauce
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tbsp creamy peanut butter
- 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp red curry chili paste
- 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
Mix it all up, and you’re done. It really is that simple! I used mine over a bed of rice noodles and veggies, but you could pretty much use this on anything. I’m thinking it could even be used as a salad dressing, depending on what kind of salad you’re in the mood for.
I made dinner for Eric, and he’s not a big fan of peanut things, but even he enjoyed this! (I gave him the option of other sauces, and he still went with this one… so that’s good, right?) I just bought a box of rice noodles, and a bag of frozen Asian style veggies. After boiling the noodles, and stir frying the veggies in a bit of coconut oil, I just stirred it around in the frying pan.
Oh, and this whole dinner is dairy free and gluten-free, you know, if you’re into that sort of thing.
