Holly and I had a conversation recently on peanut sauce – we both love it! Turns out, our recipes are practically identical! This sauce is super easy to whip up and makes for a delicious weeknight meal.
What helps tie everything together in this particular recipe is a teeny bit of chickpea miso. Miso is a fermented paste that gives dishes a bit of an umami boost – it also is great for gut health and can last pretty much forever in your fridge.
Good-on-everything Peanut Sauce
- 1 small clove garlic
- ½ cup peanut butter
- 1 inch piece ginger
- 1 cup vegetable broth
- 2 tablespoons tamari
- ½ teaspoon chickpea miso
- ½ teaspoon rice vinegar
- ½ teaspoon maple syrup
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne
- Dash of salt
Combine garlic, peanut butter, ginger, vegetable broth, tamari, chickpea miso, rice vinegar, maple syrup, and cayenne in a Vitamix/blender. Blend on high until thoroughly combined.
It works well on everything from salads, stir-fries, to rice and noodle dishes. Yum!
