This traditional Asian and African sauce brings interest and vibrant flavours to rice, tofu and chicken dishes. The recipe below gives a very quick sauce, and can be made with store-cupboard ingredients. Use as a ‘pour over’ sauce on rice, served with vegetables and meat, or make thicker to use as a dipping sauce for a barbecue. Remember to check out our full range of peanut (and many other nut) butters!
Fresh garlic and ginger
1 jar peanut butter
3 tbsp soy sauce
Gently fry a little chopped garlic and ginger in some oil.
Empty in a jar of peanut butter, along with 3 tablespoons of soy sauce and 3 tablespoons of water.
Mix well on a gentle heat – it will thicken as it warms. It does not need to boil (and it will stick horribly to the pan if it does)!
Add more water until the sauce reaches the required degree of thickness.
If you like a bit of heat, add a little chopped fresh chilli, or a pinch of cayenne pepper, to the chopped garlic and ginger.
