Thai Peanut Sauce (on everything!!)

Wow, I need to start eating something other than rice for dinner, so I can get some new recipes up in here!

Many people don’t know this (because it’s a closet addiction), but I have a horrible addiction to peanut butter. I don’t EVER allow myself to buy it because I will go through jars! in a week. The worst part wasn’t the insane amount of weight gain from eating 1,200 calories in peanut butter a day, it was how awful my stomach felt every second of the day.

Peanut butter is my drug of choice, used to be at least. Then I rediscovered PB2 (loved it in high school), and my live was complete again. I can eat the same insane quantity of PB2 but it’s only a fraction of the calories of regular PB. Win for my stomach too. I’m all about the healthy fats, but there’s a point when too much is detrimental to your gut.

I couldn’t give it up completely because what fun would that be? If I like PB I’m gonna eat it, but I needed to learn how to eat it in healthy quantities. Baby steps, peeps.

My new fave blog Yeah… Immaeatthatย is a great proponent for eating what you want when you want and just living life without food barriers. I was stalking her blog one day and she posted a recipe for a peanut sauce. I happened to have all the ingredients so obviously I went home and whipped it up and topped my fave rice bowl. Boom. DELICIOUS!

2 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
2 Tbsp. coconut aminos (soy sauce if not gluten free)
1 Tbsp. maple syrup (honey works if not vegan)
1 1/2 Tbsp. sesame oil

// Combine all ingredients in a bowl until smooth.
Drizzle over roasted veggies and rice, or even use as salad dressing!

    [ Smiles ] I love the flavour of peanut sauce.

    A gentle warning here:

    There are some people who have peanut allergies and this recipe can be a bit detrimental to them.

    Thankfully, I do not have any food allergies; which means I can fully indulge myself in your vegan recipe (But, without the honey; since the vegan community does not use honey).

    Gosh this is a highly versatile sauce. I never know that powdered peanut butter even existed. Thanks for sharing, Chloe.
