I may be over-stating this, but I don’t think you can ever have enough sauce recipes. Ever! They are perfect for everything from bowls to salads to sandwiches and more. This peanut sauce is really no exception.
The truly awesome thing about this recipe is how easy it is. The secret to it (or not so secret now), is peanut butter powder. If you’re not familiar with it, they remove all of the fat from ground peanuts (I’m assuming to make peanut oil), and what’s left is this fab flour. It’s low in fat, high in protein, and mixes together in a flash. No hard whisking needed!
The peanut butter powder I used for the recipe is one I found at Costco, called PBfit. I also found it on Amazon here. It’s organic and lightly sweetened with coconut palm sugar. It really makes an incredible peanut sauce that is so much lower in fat than regular peanut sauce.
The recipe also calls for fresh lime zest and juice, and as much as I’m all for swapping ingredients when you don’t have them on hand, I highly recommend getting yourself a lime to make this. The fresh zest sends it over the top in flavor. It’s so good, and creamy, zesty, a little spicy and a touch sweet. That bowl you see in the photo? I just finished eating it for dinner. It was so good with diced firm organic tofu that was sprinkled with sesame seeds, rice, carrots and steamed broccoli. Holy cow, I could eat this bowl every day! I think it would also be wonderful with grilled or pan-seared tofu on a sandwich, used as a dressing on a loaded salad (with maybe a touch more lime juice), as a dipper sauce for spring rolls, and as a dip for cut vegetables (move over ranch dip!).
