5 Minute Healthy Peanut Sauce

  • Author: Remy

  • Yield: 10 servings 1x


A quick, one bowl peanut sauce recipe! It’s vegan, gluten-free, oil-free and full of flavour. Perfect to dip spring rolls in, cook tofu or tempeh with, or simply use as a dressing for salad or noodles.


  • 1/3 cup creamy natural peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 3 tbsp water (more as needed)
  • 2 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (more to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp freshly grated ginger or 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 clove garlic (roasted) or 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • optional sesame seeds, roasted peanuts to top


  • Add all ingredients to a large bowl, and whisk until smooth and emulsified.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.


*I recommend using a peanut butter that contains only peanuts (no salt, no added sugar), as the maple syrup adds sweetness to this sauce, and the tamari adds saltiness.
