I have to confess, I probably eat Thai peanut sauce
just a little too often. I stir it into pasta or noodles, use it as a salad dressing
, use it as a dip for snacking on raw veggies, dip spring rolls
in it and pour it over steamed veggies - Thai peanut sauce
is definitely one of my favorite sauces! Kids also enjoy the peanut buttery taste, as long as you don't make it too spicy. Try a few of these recipes to start with, then once you know the basic flavors, adjust the quantities to make it however you like! Peanut sauce can be very easy to make using peanut butter, as in the easy Thai peanut sauce recipe
pictured, or, for a more authentic Thai peanut sauce
, use fresh raw peanuts. I've tried making peanut sauce with other nut butters, such as cashew nut butter and soy nut butter, and while it turns out ok, it is really much much better with peanut butter. Likewise, use fresh ginger if you can, as it gives a much stronger flavor.
