Thai-Style Peanut Sauce

One of my favorite foods? Peanut butter. I wish it was a food group. Spoonfuls straight out of the jar, for breakfast or for lunch, peanut butter is oh so unexplainably yummy. Dinnertime comes, and what do I still often crave? Peanut butter.

So I decided to tackle this favorite food and make it into a sophisticated, dinner-time, Thai-influenced sauce.

Creamy peanuts blended with sesame oil, hoisin, soy, cayenne, ginger, garlic and other incredible flavor punches that will make you want to spoon this sauce straight into your mouth.

I will now reveal the recipe to my succulent secret sauce. Prepare to be addicted.

Stay tuned! TOMORROW I will be making a dish with Thai-Style Peanut Sauce: Pork Satay with Sautéed Bok Choy and Sticky Rice!

Makes: 4 small bowls for dipping (or simply eating)

The Ingredients

3/4 cup peanut butter (I absolutely love Teddy’s All Natural Smooth Peanut Butter)

1/2 medium red onion

1 large garlic clove

1 tablespoon fresh ginger

1/4 cup sesame/canola oil blend (Kame brand is great!)

1/4 cup hoisin sauce (I use Kikkoman brand!)

2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup ketchup

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

 

The Steps

This is way too simple to be true. Place all ingredients in a blender, starting with onion, garlic, and ginger on the bottom of the blender. Blend on high for 3-4 minutes until completely smooth, occasionally scraping down the sides of the blender.

Now get that spoon out and dig in.
