Peanut sauce is a great
way to add flavor to appetizers, salads, and satays.
The Chinese version of peanut sauce doesn't have the
sharp taste of Thai peanut sauce recipes made with
curry paste, but is just as flavorful.
1/4 cup low sodium
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons cilantro leaves, chopped
2 mint leaves, chopped
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
3/4 teaspoon chili powder, or to taste
Warm the chicken broth in a small saucepan and keep
warm on low heat. Process the peanut butter,
garlic cloves, cilantro and mint leaves and sugar in a
blender or food processor. Slowly add the warmed
chicken broth and process again. Remove from the
blender and stir in the
soy sauce, and the chili
powder to taste. Serve peanut sauce with satay and
salads, or as an appetizer dip.
