The classic gets a paleo makeover (because the Wahls Protocol says no or limited legumes)… an easy Paleo Thai Peanut Sauce. Except no actual peanuts!
Don’t worry almond butter is just as tasty- a little sweet, a little salty and my personal preference a little EXTRA spicy! This sauce is the perfect base for so many dishes from spring roll dipping sauce to rice noodles to swimming rama. You can find our weeknight swimming rama recipe here. Or just throw it on a grilled chicken salad. That is pretty damn good too!
How to Make Easy Paleo Thai “Peanut Sauce
Like most of our no cook sauces… of which I talk about constantly and you will find them all here. This Thai Peanut- Almond Sauce is as simple as throwing everything into a blender. Pulse. Taste Test.
The recipe, as written, is light on spice. Personally, I prefer to double up the crushed red pepper. You can use warm water or a little bit of coconut milk to thin the sauce for the texture best suited for your dish.
