My favorite recipes are those that you can use for multiple purposes. When you’re trying to balance home life with work or taking your kids to a million extra curricular activities – it’s good to have a few recipes that can work for several occasions. One of my favorites is the Asian Peanut Sauce. I adopted it from a website Elena’s Pantry, made a few adjustments and now my family loves it!
It’s really simple and can be used as a pasta sauce, salad dressing or a vegetable dipping sauce. I personally use it on my grilled chicken satay or in wraps, so really it can go with most everything! The best part is that it lasts for weeks in the refrigerator so you make it once and you have it on tap for a while! Here’s how you make it:
- Peanut Butter – 1/2 cup, creamy organic
- lime juice – 1 lime fresh squeezed
- fish sauce – 2 teaspoons
- toasted sesame oil – 2 teaspoons
- rice vinegar – 2 teaspoons
- agave – 2 teaspoons
- orange – 1/2 orange fresh squeezed
- water – 1/4 cup
- garlic – 2 cloves
- ginger – 2 teaspoons
I throw all of the ingredients into a high speed blender. Because of this I don’t bother mincing my garlic or my ginger. My lovely Blendtech does it for me. If you don’t have one of these awesome machines, you will need to chop the galic and the ginger finely and then place all of the ingredients in a mason jar and shake vigorously.
This sauce adds some flavor to just about any dish. Use as you wish.
Store in the refrigerator.
