(Sorta) Spicy Peanut Sauce

  • Prep Time : 5m
  • Ready In : 5m

There was a point in my life where my local store had about 20 items total in stock (which included the ingredients for this sauce), so I lived off this stuff for months.  And I still enjoy it.  I think its that good.

This is a really quick and easy sauce that you can make in a couple of minutes with stuff you probably already have in your pantry and requires no cooking.  If you do have to head out to the grocery store, you’ll end up spending about $7 for enough ingredients to make this several times over.

You can put this on top of just about anything.  I like to cook some noodles or rice, saute some veggies and then combine them with the sauce in a deep pan or wok for a few minutes and garnish with peanuts and scallions.


  • 1/2 Cup of Peanut Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon of Oil (Sesame Preferred)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Soy Sauce
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic, Finely Chopped
  • Juice of 1 Small Lemon
  • 1/4 Cup of Water
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Sriracha or other chili sauce to taste


Step 1

Blend all the ingredients together with a fork or a food processor until its smooth, creamy and uniform.

Jake switched to a plant based diet in 1996 and quickly realized he had no idea how to cook. All these years later and he's still trying to figure it out...
