Homemade Thai Peanut Sauce

In a saucepan, combine:

1/4 cup nat peanut butter **see note about PB2

1/4 cup Braggs (soy beans, filtered water)

2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

2 tsp sesame seed oil

2 tsp fresh ginger, grated

1 tbsp honey

1 tsp garlic powder

Pinch (or more!) of hot pepper flakes

Heat over medium heat until bubbling, stirring constantly.

 

Nutrition (per tbsp):

Cals 39, 2g carbs, 1 g protein, 3 g fat ~ but using the PB2 makes the fat component almost non-existent!

 

**I used 3 tbsp of the PB2 (powdered peanuts) mixed with about 1/2 cup water, and then added a bit of apple cider vinegar to make a thinner consistency for a stir fry. I also use this sauce as the base for Thai Chicken Tortilla pizzas, made on the ancient grains tortillas (just bake the tortilla in the oven for about 4 mins to crisp it a bit before putting sauce and toppings on)
