Basil Peanut Sauce

Filed under: Uncategorized — sophiestatz @ 1:02 am

I always make this peanut sauce to serve with spring rolls. It’s a great combination of spicy, savory, and sweet, and the basil adds a significant amount of the deliciousness factor. It also only takes around ten minutes from start to finish.


1/2 c peanut butter (chunky or smooth)

1/2 c hot water

1-2 Tbsp soy sauce (depending on preference, I generally use about 1 1/2)

Juice of one lemon

1tbsp honey (sugar works well too)

dash of sriracha or other hot sauce

dash of cumin

1/3 c chopped basil

To prepare:

Combine peanut butter and hot water until creamy. Add remaining ingredients, wait until end to add basil.

I always make spring rolls to go along with them, such as the ones below.
