A mildly spicy and sweet peanut sauce perfect for dipping.
This peanut sauce has a lovely sweet yet spicy taste that is combined with an Asian flair making it an excellent dipping sauce for all sorts of dishes.
Great on its own as a dip for vegetables, it goes even better with dishes such as my fresh spring rolls, or any kabab or satay. It is gluten-free and vegan so anyone (except those with peanut allergies) can enjoy.
I prefer to use crunchy peanut butter for this sauce, but smooth will work perfectly fine as well. This sauce is fairly low in carbs, but to make it more keto-friendly, swap the maple syrup for liquid stevia or other no carb liquid sweetener.
(Makes 8 servings)
1 cup all-natural peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
1 cup vegetable stock
2 tablespoons tamari
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seed oil
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add all of the ingredients listed and stir to combine well.
As the mixture heats up and the peanut butter melts, lower the heat to medium-low and continue stirring until smooth.
Remove from heat and transfer into a serving dish. Set aside to cook to room temperature before serving.
