This is a really easy and delicious peanut dipping sauce. It’s quick to make and if you cook Asian food you most likely have all the ingredients on hand already.
We use it for a dipping sauce for summer rolls/salad rolls, but it would also be great over rice noodles or a salad.
Although it is flavorful, it isn’t spicy. If you want it to have “heat” you’ll want to make sure and add some chili garlic paste or spicy chile sauce (Thai Kitchen makes some gluten free ones that are at most well-stocked grocery stores).
Peanut Dipping Sauce
- 2 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
- 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
- 1/2 cup hoisin sauce ( Premier Japan makes a gf/cf one)
- 2 tsp tomato sauce
- 1 cup water
- Place all ingredients in a small saucepan and whisk to combine. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for about 5 minutes. Allow to cool before serving. Store leftovers in refrigerator.
