Can we pause for just a second and take in the beauty of this peanut sauce? Just for a second?

It is creamy, peanut-y, and everything you’d ever want in a delicious peanut sauce, I think. And can I share a little secret with ya? It couldn’t get much easier to make either. Seriously.

This is one of those sauce recipes that your blender or food processor does all of the heavy lifting for you, resulting in an incredible sauce you can use in any number of dishes in seconds.

To make it, I add my creamy peanut butter, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, lime juice, honey, red pepper flakes, ginger, and garlic to the container of my blender or food processor. With the motor running, I then slowly pour water through the chute and blend until creamy and it reaches the consistency that I want.

Then, I sometimes stir in roughly chopped dry roasted peanuts. Yum! Yum!

If you are wondering what in the world you’d use peanut sauce in, I have a salad that I use it with coming up later this week. Luckily, peanut sauce is a great make-ahead recipe. You can make and store in the refrigerator for about a week. Meaning, you can make it now and store in the refrigerator for a week’s worth of delicious dishes!

Here’s my super easy Peanut Sauce recipe. I hope you love it as much as we do!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped peanuts optional

Instructions

  • Add peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, honey, Worcestershire sauce, ginger, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes to the container of a blender or food processor. With the motor running, slowly pour water through the chute until the mixture is creamy and reaches the desired consistency. More water will make the peanut sauce thinner and less will make it thicker.
  • Remove from container and stir in chopped peanuts, if using.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to a week.

Enjoy!

  1. Loved the peach pie and blueberry cheesecakeicecream. ALL your recipes are wonderful.

  2. This is a little late to comment on but I have thoroughly enjoyed the oatmeal overnight treat for breakfast. Had lunch with several ladies this week and took them each a copy of the recipe. So tasty for a summer breakfast.

  3. We love peanut chicken at our favorite Chinese restaurant…yummy! This recipe will definitely be added to our menu plan. Pinned. Thank for this recipe share!

  4. Love a satay sauce on chicken…My husband’s favorite.. This recipe will be very handy…thank you

  5. I make a grilled chicken salsd , the usual suspects go into the salad mix, then top with grilled chickec, cilantro leaves, fried wonton strips. Now toss lightly with a honey lime viniagrette.
    Now drizzle that peanut sauce over the top!

  6. I have made this peanut sauce three times now and it has been great every time. I don’t usually have honey at home so I have been substituting the same amount of brown sugar. I have been making peanut noodles with it. I throw in some stir fry veggies and it’s fantastic. I also skip the blender and mix it by hand and it still has a great consistency.

  7. I shoulda known you’d have what I needed!

  8. I just made this for the first time. So easy and very good! I drizzled it over spicey baked chicken breast (side of steamed broccoli) and I couldn’t stop eating!!! This recipe is definitely a keeper.

  9. Fast, easy and sooo good!

  10. I made this according to the recipe except I did not add red pepper flakes as I didn’t have any on hand.  I also used half crunchy peanut butter since I didn’t have any peanuts on hand either.  I just whisked everything together.  It worked fine!   We had Asian lettuce wraps with chicken, cabbage, carrots, crunchy wontons, sesame seeds, lettuce leaves and of course, peanut sauce!  I also sliced up some blood oranges to have along with the lettuce wraps.  It was a winner at our house and hubby said he would like to have this again.  

  11. easy, fast, and I always have the ingredients on hand… on top of that is very child friendly  (minus the chili flakes) 7 stars! Thanks for sharing!

  12. Perfect taste. I leaned more towards 1/2 cup water for the consistency I liked best. Thanks for a great recipe:)
