I want to make some wraps with fried tofu and a nice peanut sauce, maybe some broccoli, red pepper, etc.

Does anybody have a yummy recipe that is simple and not too spicy (heat wise). I don't remember what recipe I used in the past, other than it had lime juice.

Thanks!

I think if you search for peanut sauce, you'll find a lot of recipes and ideas previously mentioned. The one I make isn't hot-spicy, but if you don't like ginger either, leave it out too. The amounts are approximate, as I tend to fiddle with it a lot. I've also had some good ones made w/ coconut milk - but maybe leave the lemon juice out if you do that, as it might curdle a bit.

1/2 cup Peanut butter
2 cloves pr(or minced) ginger
3 T lemon juice
a big splash of balsamic vinegar
2 tsp ume plum vinegar (or use salt or tamari to taste)
thin with water to the consistency you like (it will thicken up as it sits)

I just stir into a pot a big dollop of peanut butter, a splash of soy sauce or Braggs, a splash of lemon or lime juice and a little maple or agave syrup. I add a bit of water, heat it to boiling, then add more water until its the right consistency cause it gets much thicker as it heats, taste and adjust flavours. I prefer to add some garlic and chili flakes, but my son makes this all the time without them.

I forgot to buy peanut butter. I'm a dodo head.

I wonder how it would work with almond coconut butter.

Mix up a bit and see how it goes! It also works great with tahini, if you have that - but most people would want to add a bit of sweetener (I like things tart or even a bit bitter.)

I cant see why it wouldnt work with almond coconut butter, just a slighltly diffrent flavour. My husband actually prefers it with almond butter, and I have used sunflower seed butter in a pinch.
