As much as I love peanut butter, I rarely have any available when I want to whip up a batch of peanut butter cookies for a midday snack or a tasty peanut sauce to go with dinner, which is how this delicious almond butter sauce came to be. The sauce, perfect for coating rice or noodles or using as a dip for spring rolls, has quickly become one of my favorite homemade recipes, and it only takes five minutes to make!
Aside from a drizzle of tamari — or soy sauce, if you aren't gluten-free — you only need a few spices to turn your favorite almond butter into a savory and tasty sauce to make dinner just a little bit more special. I, for one, will probably be enjoying it over a noodle-filled plate of chicken and veggies very soon. Keep reading to find out how to whip up a bowl of this creamy condiment for yourself.
- 2-3 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce
1/2 cup room-temperature almond butter (runny)
1 tablespoon garlic salt
Red chili flakes to taste
- In a small bowl, use a fork or whisk to combine the room-temperature almond butter, lime juice (can substitute lemon juice), garlic salt, tamari or soy sauce, and red chili flakes.
- Gradually add about 1/4 cup of water to the mixture and combine until the sauce is creamy but not quite runny.
- Taste and add more garlic salt or chili flakes as desired.
- Pour the sauce over noodles or rice mixed with vegetables and protein for a delicious family dinner.
