Spicy Peanut Sauce

Peanut butter and spice, oh so nice…

Crafting up your own spicy peanut sauce is as easy as can be. A peanut butter base and common ingredients mean it’s simple to pull together in ten quick minutes. It’s perfect for chicken satay, noodle dishes, or dipping of all sorts. Try it with vegetable rolls, it’s a real delicious combo.

The heat simply comes from crushed red pepper, so you can easily control the overall spiciness. At 1/4 teaspoon, it’s moderately spicy as it stands.
