Homemade Peanut Sauce
Alyssa's Peanut Sauce
Recently, this has been my favorite way to make my vegetables delicious: a creamy, spicy, sweet peanut sauce! Put this sauce on any combination of vegetables and protein for a flavor packed meal! The sauce contains NO oil, is totally VEGAN and can be made in only a few minutes. In the photo, I used this peanut sauce on top of chicken, broccoli and brown rice. It also tastes great on steamed veggies, or spiralized zucchini noodles. Use it on anything! Let me know how you used your peanut sauce! Enjoy!
Alyssa's Peanut Sauce:
• 1/3 cup Vegetable Broth (or Low Sodium Chicken Broth, if not vegan)
• 1 tsp Grated Ginger
• 1 Clove Pressed Garlic (or grated)
• 1 tbsp Low Sodium Soy Sauce
• 1/2 tbsp Sriracha
• 2 tbsp All Natural Peanut Butter
• Drizzle of Honey
Optional toppings: Scallions, Chopped Peanuts or Cashews, Sesame Seeds
Simmer these ingredients in a small pot over low for 6-8 minutes or until it thickens. Sauce will thicken more upon standing.
If you need to thicken the sauce, add 1/2 tsp of corn starch, as needed. To help thin the sauce, add more broth.
Pour sauce over steamed vegetables. Add chicken for a good source of lean protein. Top with scallions, chopped peanuts or cashews and/or sesame seeds. Enjoy!
