Coconut PB Sauce

I made this for the lettuce wraps on Sunday and it makes a really large amount of sauce. I suggest not only using this for a sauce on the side kind of meal, but also feel free to put it on some rice noodles. It would also be great to turn it into a chicken satay dipping sauce.

Or… after you taste this amazingness you might be happy just eating it with a spoon straight out of the bowl.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp. chili oil
  • T tsp. Veggie oil
  • 2 tbsp. chopped ginger
  • 2 tbsp. chopped garlic
  • 1 can light coconut milk
  • ½ cup – ¾ cup of PB – NO NATURAL PB – its too oily to cook with
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Heat the oils in a small sauce pan. Once hot, add the garlic and ginger and sauté until translucent.  Add the coconut milk and once it’s hot add the PB. Wisk until all combined. The heat from the sauce will melt the PB. Once all combined taste it. If it needs something more due to your palette, add it, such as siracha sauce, more chili oil, or even a little hint of lemon.

Put in a bowl, over rice, pasta or chicken and serve!
