You can serve this healthy peanut sauce recipe as a dip or drizzle over Asian dishes! You can toss this savory peanut sauce with noodles, too. It’s good every which way! Recipe yields about 1 ⅔ cup sauce.
¾ cup creamy peanut butter
¼ cup rice vinegar
¼ cup water
⅓ cup reduced sodium tamari or reduced-sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons honey or agave nectar
1 ½ teaspoons grated fresh ginger or ½ teaspoon ground ginger
1 to 2 medium cloves garlic, pressed or minced, to taste
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes, plus more for sprinkling
Optional garnishes: sprinkling of chopped roasted peanuts and additional red pepper flakes
In a 2-cup liquid measuring cup or medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the ingredients until well blended. If your peanut butter is particularly thick, you may need to add a bit more water to thin out the mixture (adding water will mellow out the flavor as well).
Feel free to adjust to taste here—for example, sometimes I want my sauce more savory and add another clove of garlic, or a little sweeter, so I add extra honey.
If you’re serving the sauce as a party dip, transfer it to a serving bowl and sprinkle with chopped peanuts and red pepper flakes for some visual interest!
