spicy peanut sauce

Here is a new version of my delicious spicy peanut sauce recipe. It’s now quick, easy and even more delicious with peanut butter, ginger, garlic, onion, coconut milk, soy sauce, maple syrup, rice vinegar and chili.

I put lemongrass in and love it, but if you can’t get it, just leave it out, the sauce will still taste great.

It’s ready in minutes, can be enjoyed warm or as a cold dipping sauce and works well with:

The peanut sauce will last in the fridge for at least a week … theoretically. You can also freeze it.
