Thai Peanut Sauce

Sauces and marinades are sometimes the secret killer in your diet. Highly processed, full of sugar and preservatives, why ruin your magnificently healthy stirfry with a less than healthy topping? Plus, I always think homemade just tastes better anyways. It is definitely worth the extra 5 minutes it takes to whip up your own sauce. thaipeanutsauce4 Ingredients:
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp hot sauce
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil (or tamari)
  • 2 tsp grated ginger (optional)
  • 2 tsp brown sugar or maple syrup
  • ½ tsp of lime juice
Directions:
  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor, by hand - mixing vigourously, or on the stovetop in a small sauce pan.
  2. Add to your favourite dish!
