    Peanut sauce, our favourite asian sauce that's amazing with summer rolls or drizzled on noddles and tofu!

     
     

    Ingredients:

    • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
    • 2 Tbsp warm water
    • 1 Tbsp curry paste
    • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
    • 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce
    • 1/2 Tbsp rice vinegar
    • 1 Tbsp lime juice
    • 1/2 tsp garlic, minced
    • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
    • 1/2 Tbsp sriracha
