Thai Peanut Sauce

This is good with tofu & veggies, i.e. an "Asian Bowl"

This sauce is higher in fat than our other recipes, because of the peanut butter. 

Note that PB2 by Bell Plantation, which is powdered peanut butter with 85% of the fat removed: is Delicious!  Use the powder powder in recipes, or mix with water to turn it back into delicious peanut bette: you can't tell the difference!  (Also, the powder is easier to measure and to cook with). 

Modified from Dr. McDougall's blog: "Asia Bowl")    


¼ cup peanut butter OR 3 TBSP of PB2 powder.
1 tablespoon Hoisin Sauce
Juice of ½ lime, or 1 TBSP lime juice
OPTIONAL: 1-2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro


Mix ingredients together in a (non-stick) saucepan on mild heat.   If too thick, may thin with water or soy sauce.

(Original recipe called for soy sauce, but not needed when using Hoisin Sauce).  
(Original used 1/8 teaspoon coconut extract which didn't add anything in my opinion and requires a trip to the health food store).
