  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar apple cider vinegar or lime juice
  • 1/3 cup warm water
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp raw ginger root peeled - optional

  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Notes

Troubleshooting:
  • This sauce will absolutely thicken up when heated. So if you are adding to any cooked items, be sure to factor that in!
  • If you want this sauce even thicker when cooked, add 1 tsp corn starch to the blend.
  • If your sauce if too watery, add another 1-3 Tbsp peanut butter and another teaspoon of tamari. 
  • If you want your sauce much sweeter, reduce water to 3-4 Tbsp and sub 2 more Tbsp maple syrup. This is for a sweet peanut sauce!
  • If your sauce is too thick, add another splash of water.
