Summer is officially here!See also: recovering my kitchen mojo.
I've been baking and trying out new dinner recipes, aiming for recipes with more protein and veggies.
As I ponder dinner, spicy peanut sauce sounds good with everything. Meatballs? Stir fry? Chicken wraps? Peanut sauce it ALL.
If peanut saucing it all sounds like a plan, you can have homemade sauce in just a few minutes.
What You Need
5 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
5 tablespoons water
5 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
juice of half lime (the other half was sacrificed for my rum & coke)
1/4 cup Huy Fong garlic chili sauce, less if you don't want as much of a kick
1/2 cup peanuts (I used dry roasted)
What You Do
Pull out your trusty food processor. Put all the ingredients except the peanuts in and process for 15-20 seconds to combine everything. Add the peanuts and pulse briefly, so the peanuts pieces are small but not completely obliterated. If you want it completely smooth, keep going until it's the texture you desire.
Pour into a bowl or liquid measuring cup and you're good to go for all your peanut sauce needs.
