Thai Peanut Sauce

Thai Peanut Sauce

Ingredients:

3/4 Cup peanut butter
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 Tablespoon sweet chili garlic sauce*
1 Clove garlic, minced
2-4 Tablespoons water

Instructions:

In a medium bowl add the peanut butter, soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, and minced garlic. use a fork and stir well until everything has an even consistency, add 1-2 Tablespoons of water and mix again until you get a sauce that is still fairly thick, like a really rich BBQ sauce. Once mixed and at the right consistency the sauce is ready to use, or it can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for a few days.

Enjoy!

Notes:

Heat wave finally over! I can use the oven again and try out some new recipes. First on the to do list, homemade Thai pizza, with peanut sauce, peppers, carrots, green onion, sesame seeds and some fresh roasted and shredded chicken breast. It was delightful, and definitely a supper I will make again.

Thai peanut sauce can also be used as a saute sauce, a dressing on a salad, pizza sauce, or a condiment for noodles. Useful recipe and really simple, plus this recipe has ingredients which are already just kicking around my kitchen anyways. Always a bonus when that happens and you don't always have to go to the store to get a specialty ingredient.

So this is my recipe for homemade Thai peanut sauce, I chose to use natural peanut butter with little to no added sugar, and since I still do not like nuts very much I used smooth peanut butter, but most people prefer the crunchy kind for this recipe. I also used a store bought Thai chili garlic sauce as the spicy kick, however if you don't happen to have any on hand you can easily substitute one Teaspoon of crushed chili flakes, an extra clove of minced garlic, and a teaspoon of honey*.
