Thai Peanut Sauce :: MSG, Starch, Filler, & Sugar Free

Thai Peanut Sauce :: MSG, Starch, Filler, & Sugar Free
It all started about 12 years ago.

Bear with me for a minute while I take a trip down memory lane – you’ll see why in a minute 🙂

It was our second date. A double date to be exact – with my best friend and her now husband and myself with my now husband. We went rock climbing…I had never rock climbed a day in my life, but you better believe I wasn’t gonna tell him that.

My friend and I mostly hung out on the floor watching our guys show off scaling the walls, and to be honest the rest is history for me. We had the best day – that ended at this little place in the city for Thai food. I had never experienced Thai food before, and not only did I completely fall for my now husband that day, I also fell completely in love with Thai cuisine.

I loved the flavorful heat. The color! The texture! All of it!

I have “real foodified”, if you will, some of our favorite Thai dishes at home, and I think you will be surprised at how authentic you can make it taste with, go figure…real ingredients. And with minimal effort – everything into the sauce pan to simmer – 10 minutes and done!

Spicy Thai peanut noodles was the very first Thai meal I ever had, and it is still one of my favorites – I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

This recipe makes enough sauce to get us through a couple dinners for my family of 5. I usually stir it into a big stir fry. You can use it for dipping sauce as well. Make it as thick or thin as you like! And adjust the heat to your preference. This is pretty mild since I have little ones eating it – I want them to enjoy it too! My husband and I add more heat to our dish separately.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup organic natural peanut butter Just peanuts and salt! No other oils or sugar added! I get mine at Costco – or if you have a high powered blender (lucky you! you can make your own.)
  • 1 cup <a href="http://www.raisinggenerationnourished.com/2015/02/diy-coconut-milk/" target="_blank" title="DIY Coconut Milk :: No Gums Fillers, Or Sweeteners">coconut milk (Either homemade or THIS is a safe brand in a BPA free can)
  • ½ cup coconut aminos
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes more if you want more heat
  • Sea salt/pepper to taste
  • Water to desired consistency – I like it thicker and use about ¼ - ½ cup

Instructions

  • Everything into a small sauce pan and bring to a simmer for about 10 minutes to incorporate. You can add the water or even more coconut milk as you go to get the consistency you want for your stir fry or dipping.

What is your favorite Thai meal? Let me know how you like the peanut sauce if you give a try!
