Simple Peanut Butter Sauce

(vegan, gluten free)

This simple sauce is seriously so easy to whip together and is my latest obsession. Who doesn’t love a good peanut sauce? And if you are allergic to peanuts, this sauce works great with practically any other nut or seed butter. I have tried it with almond butter and it’s just as delicious! A touch sweet, salty, nutty, and spicy, it pairs perfectly with your favourite stir fry or noodle bowl for a simple lunch or dinner, or as a dip for veggies, tofu, shrimp, or summer rolls. Enjoy!

How can I make this gluten free?

Most soy sauces contain gluten. However, tamari (a soy sauce alternative) is typically gluten free (make sure to check the label just to make sure!). You can also use coconut aminos, which are gluten free, less salty, and a bit sweeter than regular soy sauce or tamari. I have tried this sauce with each of these alternatives and both are great options!

How can I make this peanut free?

Although the main flavour of this sauce is peanut, you can definitely use other nut or seed butters! If you’re allergic to peanuts (or just don’t like them), then try using different nut butters like almond or cashew, or seed butters like sunflower seed butter.

How can I make this nut free?

Use a seed butter like sunflower seed butter!
