Learn how to make peanut sauce with just 7 ingredients in less than 5 minutes. It's a delicious, super creamy Thai sauce, made with easy to get ingredients.
The first meal I had in South East Asia last winter was a tempeh satay burger with peanut sauce and it was to die for. I immediately knew I had to share something similar on the blog.
Chicken satay and peanut sauce are popular Thai recipes, but tempeh is a good vegan substitute for chicken, high in protein and also tastes amazing (it's actually one of my favorite plant-based protein sources). I'll share a tempeh satay recipe this week, but in the meanwhile, enjoy this amazing sauce, which is great to make all kinds of Asian recipes like Vietnamese spring rolls, salads, noodles or even as a dip.
Besides, my peanut sauce is made with easy to get ingredients, available at your local supermarket and you just need to blend them until smooth, that's all! This sauce has that savory and sweet flavor, that is so popular in Thai cuisine. It's also naturally sweetened with dates, my go-to natural sweetener, any other will do though (maple syrup is a great choice as well).
