Spicy Peanut Sauce

Peanut sauce is a simple, wonderful and versatile condiment and dressing, that you can make as spicy (or not) as you like! We especially love to make this directly in a near-empty peanut butter jar so as not to waste any PB.

Use this sauce for:

  • Stir fries: saute veggies and protein of choice in Garlic EVOO and then once done, turn off the heat and stir in peanut sauce before serving over rice or noodles.
  • Dressing a fresh salad bowl: we love chopped purple cabbage, cucumber, red pepper, carrot, green onion, and cilantro - add diced cooked chicken or tofu for a great lunch/dinner option.
  • Dipping sauce for grilled kebabs or veggie crudites.
  • Marinading or saucing chicken, pork, beef, tofu or tempeh.


  • 1/2 cup peanut butter natural, unsweetened
  • 2 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce (use tamari or coconut aminos for gluten free)
  • 1 Tbsp Organic Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Hot Chili, Jalapeno or Habanero EVOO (choose your spicy level)
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp sriracha
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 3 garlic cloves, pressed or grated (make this low FODMAP by subbing 1 Tbsp Garlic EVOO for garlic cloves)
  • 1 Tbsp grated ginger root
  • 2-4 Tbsp warm water

Add all ingredients to a medium size bowl, adding the warm water last, then whisk to combine. Start with less water and add more to get the desired consistency—thinner is better for a marinade or salad dressing, thicker for a dipping or stir-fry sauce.
