While on Whole30, peanuts are one of the foods that are not allowed during the 30 days. I absolutely love peanut sauce so not being able to eat it for 30 days was a bummer. I decided to make my own Whole30 Peanut Sauce that would be compliant. This sauce gives me the creaminess and zing of traditional peanut sauce that I was looking for in a sauce.
The great thing about this recipe is you can easily tweak to your tastes. For more zing, add additional lime juice or lime zest. Add more crushed red pepper if spice is your jam. Add more coconut aminos if you want a little more sweetness. You can even add additional water to thin out the sauce and it becomes a dressing.
Dip in spring rolls (no rice paper if on Whole30), top a Thai inspired salad, or even use to make a Pad Thai dish. Add more liquids (water, coconut aminos, and lime juice) to make the sauce a marinade. Or you can use as a finishing sauce to grilled chicken. The uses of this sauce are endless!
Be on the lookout for some recipes I used the sauce for and I would love to hear what you created with the sauce, too!
