Peanut butter, honey, lime juice and seasonings come together in this flavorful sauce that’s perfect for dipping and drizzling.
Peanut sauce is one of our favorite condiments, we could honestly eat it up with a spoon. Plus, it’s so easy to make and it stays good in the fridge for about a week. We love to make this Peanut Sauce recipe and store it in a mason jar so it stays fresh and the jar can be put directly in the dishwasher for minimal cleanup. This simple recipe tastes so much better than the bottled version and takes less than 5 minutes to make.
If you’ve never tried a homemade peanut sauce, or any peanut sauce, you’ve got to give this one a try!
Why homemade Peanut Sauce?
While store-bought may taste great, most brands don’t use real food ingredients. Instead, these sauces are typically loaded with added sodium, refined sugar, vegetable oils and artificial ingredients. This recipe takes the guesswork out of knowing if your sauce is a healthy addition to your meal or nothing more than a real-food imposter.
How to choose a healthy nut butter
Because so many nut butters are made with an array of not-so-great (highly processed) ingredients, it can be difficult to determine which nut butters are minimally processed and good for you, in moderation of course.
Choose nut butters made with only the nut and a limited amount of salt (basically, the nut ground up into nutty goodness and occasionally a limited amount of salt… nothing else).
Some favorite ways to use this sauce:
- A dip for grilled chicken or chicken kabobs
- To dress a Thai Salad
- Served with homemade Spring Rolls
- Tossed with Pad Thai
- In a stir-fry, Asian noodle dish or ramen
- Served with grilled shrimp
- With crispy baked tofuPrint
