Makes a little more than 2 cups

  • 1 large clove of garlic, pressed, or 1 TBSP garlic paste

  • 1 2-inch knob of fresh ginger, peeled and zested or 1 TBSP ginger paste

  • ½ cup natural peanut butter

  • ¼ cup white miso paste

  • ¼ cup soy sauce

  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice

  • 1 TBSP apple cider vinegar

  • 2 tsp chili paste – I like Thai Kitchen's Roosted Red Chili Paste

  • 1 TBSP toasted sesame oil

  • ¼ - ½ cup hot water to thin the sauce


l. Place all the ingredients except for the water in the bowl of your food processor and blend for 1-2 minutes. pour the water in through the top until it reaches a consistency you like.  You can also place all ingredients in a metal bowl and use a whisk to incorporate all of the ingredients.

2. Taste and adjust the flavors as needed. You may want it saltier, sweeter, spicier, etc. Once you're happy with it store in a glass container with an airtight lid, refrigerated.. Make ahead of time if possible, the flavors only improve with time.

 Serve with lightly steamed broccoli florets for a tasty snack or appetizer.

 This sauce is also a great companion to chicken, tofu, fish, shrimp, stir fry or soba noodles.
