In just 5 minutes, you can whip up this super tasty Thai Peanut Sauce that’s creamy, nutty, and a little bit spicy. You won’t believe how delicious it is! This sauce is so versatile – you can toss it with some noodles for peanutty goodness, drizzle it over grilled veggies for an extra kick, stir-fry it with your favorite ingredients, or even use it as a spread in wraps. The possibilities are endless!
I usually whip up this sauce using an immersion blender or tossing it in the food processor since it’s lightning fast. But hey, you can totally grate that ginger and finely chop that garlic, throw all the ingredients in a bowl, and give it a good mix until it becomes the epitome of creaminess.
I went with natural peanut butter, which is usually a bit more runny. If your sauce ends up too thick, just toss in a smidge more water, adding one tablespoon at a time, until it’s the consistency you’re aiming for!
One of our favorite ways to serve this amazing Thai Peanut Sauce is in these Thai “Chicken” Wraps. They’re super quick to whip up, especially if you’ve got some leftover rice. Oh, and guess what? These wraps are totally travel-friendly, so they’re perfect for work lunch or a fun day at the beach!
To make these tasty wraps, grab some cooked brown rice, crispy plant-based chicken patties or nuggets (I went with Impossible Nuggets), shredded cabbage, carrots, sliced red onion, scallions, and cilantro. Simply heap these ingredients onto a tortilla, generously drizzle the Thai Peanut Sauce over the veggies, roll it all up, and you’re good to go! No fuss, just deliciousness on the fly!
