Simple Peanut Sauce

(vegan, dairy free, soy free)

A touch sweet, salty, nutty, and spicy, this Simple Peanut Sauce 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. If you are allergic to peanuts, this sauce works great with any other nut or seed butter. I have tried it with almond butter and it’s just as delicious!

Ingredients you’ll need for this Simple Peanut Sauce:

  • peanut butter (or any nut/seed butter)
  • low sodium soy sauce (or tamari, coconut aminos)
  • rice vinegar
  • sesame oil
  • hoisin
  • sriracha
  • ginger
  • garlic

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!
