easy peanut sauce

27 Jan

This makes a small enough amount to make a quick dip for lunches, or pour on some noodles. Multiply as necessary.

Makes about 1/2 cup (tripled measurements below)
3 Tbsp peanut butter
2 tsp hoisin sauce
2 tsp rice vinegar
1 tsp sugar or agave nectar
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp toasted/dark sesame oil
1 clove garlic, pressed
3 Tbsp warm/hot water (start with less or use less for thicker sauce)
(1/4 tsp+ chili garlic paste)
see directions below.

Roughly tripled from above – Makes about 1 1/2 cups
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 Tbsp hoisin sauce
2 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 Tbsp sugar, honey or agave nectar
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp toasted/dark sesame oil
3 cloves garlic, pressed
1/2 cup warm/hot water (start with less or use less for thicker sauce)
(3/4 tsp+ chili garlic paste)

Put all ingredients but water and chili paste in a jar or bowl. Add water 1 Tbsp at a time, mixing with a fork until smooth, until you get your desired thickness. Add chili garlic paste until desired spiciness.
