A quick and easy 8-ingredient peanut sauce that comes together in 5 minutes! Perfect with spring rolls, grilled meats, noodles, or just as a dip for veggies! Vegan & soy free.



  1. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor until they are blended smoothly together and you’ve reached your desired consistency (see notes).
  2. Dip, eat, enjoy!


I like to add the water last so I can control how thick or thin the sauce is (ie. thicker for dipping or thinner for noodle dishes).
If you prefer your sauce to be a little more spicy, add more of the red chili sauce. Prefer it to be sweeter? Add more brown sugar.
This peanut sauce can be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator for about a week.
