simple thai peanut sauce

Thai food may be my very favorite of all the foods. Maybe that’s just because it’s been Americanized like heck, but hey, tastes pretty good (and fresh) to me! I made this easy little peanut sauce that’s perfect with almost anything Thai. Got some noodles? Put this sauce on ’em. How about some spring rolls? I got you covered, gurl (or guy, whatever). Here’s what you need.

-1 1/2 T. canola or vegetable oil

-2 T. soy sauce (I used liquid aminos, a soy substitute)

-1 t. rice vinegar

-2 T. peanut butter (you can use creamy or chunky)

-1 T. honey (you may need a bit more)

-1 T. fresh grated ginger

*you can also add a bit of minced garlic, scallions, or sesame seeds to bring this sauce to the next level!

P.S. I photographed this by myself (without a tripod) while I was making it, so I didn’t catch all of the steps in photos.

1. Put your oil in a bowl.

It’s that simple!

We decided to do a lettuce wrap bar using this as the sauce.
