Kids like to dip vegetables or chicken or tofu in this quick peanut sauce.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons Unsweetened Peanut Butter
  • 2 tablespoons Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 1 clove Garlic (plump) (Finely chopped or put through a press)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt (Finely Ground)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Hot Chili Oil
  • 2-4 tablespoons Boiling Water
  • 3 drops Liquid Stevia (Whole Foods House Brand (unflavored))
  • 1 tablespoon Chopped Cilantro ((If you like cilantro; otherwise omit))

Note

This is a very quick thai-style peanut sauce that makes a great dip for raw or cooked vegetables (try blanched snap peas) or sauce for things like chicken lettuce wraps.  It is usually made with soy sauce and sugar.  The salty soy sauce is overpowering and requires sugar to balance it.  We make it without soy sauce or sugar, and only a small amount of salt.  A few drops of stevia is all that's needed to give a slight tang to the chili oil.  It keeps well for a few days but the garlic taste gets stronger over time.  Read about stevia before you start.

Directions

Step 1 Mix together the first five ingredients.
Step 2 Add 2-4 Tablespoons of boiling water until the sauce is the consistency you like. Less if you want a thicker sauce; more if you want a thinner sauce.
Step 3 Add 3 drops of Stevia and mix well.
Step 4 Add chopped cilantro and mix.
