Serving and Storing - Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. To reheat the sauce, gently heat it in a microwave or over the stovetop. Freeze peanut sauce for up to two months. To thaw, remove from freezer and place in the refrigerator the night before you intend to use it.
Uses - Serve your sauce immediately with salads, noodles, spring rolls, or tofu.
Recipe Tips - The thickness will depend on the desired use. For sauces over salads and pasta, go with a thinner, pourable sauce. Dipping sauces should be thicker.
- Allergic to peanut butter? This sauce can be made with any nut or seed butter. My go-to alternative is cashew butter.
- Need a gluten-free alternative? Use Tamari sauce in place of soy sauce.
- This recipe calls for maple syrup but any kind of sweetener will do. Agave nectar and brown sugar are great alternatives. If sweetening with agave nectar, reduce the amount by about 50%.
