🔪 How to Make Keto Peanut Sauce
Add all the ingredients, except the water, to a saucepan and heat over medium.
Tip: If you don't like it too spicy, you can cut back a little on the Sambal.
Simmer for 3-4 minutes, whisking often.
Add in the hot water, just enough to thin it out to get your preferred texture.
Tip: If the mixture separates some, not to worry, it will all come together perfectly and stay together!
Pour the sauce into a bullet blender and pulse until well combined and emulsified.
Tip: If you don't have a bullet blender, you can use a food processor instead.
The creamy peanut butter sauce is ready to use!
How to Store Homemade Keto Peanut Sauce
You can easily keep peanut butter sauce fresh for up to 1 week, by storing it in an airtight jar with a tight-fitting lid.
Though the texture is best when it's freshly made, you can also keep this sauce in the freezer for up to a couple of months. Just make sure your container is freezer friendly.
Before serving, allow the sauce to thaw overnight in the fridge then reheat it slowly in a saucepan over medium heat, whisking it to reincorporate the ingredients.
Will Natural Peanut Butter Kick You Out of Ketosis?
Though there's no added sugar to all-natural peanut butter, it does contain some carbs. What this means for those on Keto is that you can indulge in just a serving or two without it kicking you out of ketosis. Keep in mind, you have to take into account the other carbs contained in the foods you're eating with it.
Is Peanut Butter Good for Keto Diet?
Peanut butter can be very good for Keto because it has a high fat and fiber content that can help keep you feeling full and satisfied for hours.
Tips for Making Asian Peanut Sauce
- Warm it: To make it easier to drizzle, just stick the sauce the microwaveable for a few seconds give it a good whisk.
- Start slow: Unless you're familiar with this sambal, start out adding a little at a time until it tastes just like you’d prefer.
- Spice it up: If you want to add an extra kick of heat, you can add a pinch of red pepper flakes or a dash of Sriracha or some chili garlic sauce until it’s spicy enough for you.
- If it's too salty: If you accidentally use too much liquid aminos and the sauce taste too salty, just add a little extra lime juice. The citrus works to tone down saltiness.
- Add your own twist: This is a very forgiving sauce, and you can easily adjust the flavors to suit your own tastes. Instead of the brown sugar you can use a little sugar free Honey or maple syrup, instead of the rice vinegar, you can use apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar.
Ways to Use Peanut Sauce
- Add it to your favorite stir fry recipe. For low carb options try it with this Pork Stir Fry or Teriyaki Chicken Stir Fry.
- Drizzle it over other Asian dishes like satay, this Beef and Broccoli or this Thai Coconut Curry Grilled Chicken.
- Add to tasty salads like this Asian Grilled Chicken Salad, slaw or drizzled over a fluffy bed of cauliflower rice.
What if I'm Allergic to Peanuts?
If you have a peanut allergy but not an overall nut allergy, you can use almond butter. Because almond butter tends to be a little thicker, you may have to thin it out some. You can also use sunbutter or cashew butter.
