  • “This is really good.I like that it makes a lot so after pouring it over noodles and veggies there’s still plenty left for dipping in the next day or two.I added 1/8 cup nutritional yeast.Next time, I think I’ll add less water, or possibly omit it altogether, to make it less runny.”

  • “This was quite yummy.I minimized the hot sauce to suit everyone’s tastes and had no hoisin sauce and it was still great.Served over noodles with fresh peas and carrots.”

  • “Love this recipe and have made it many times (with natural smooth peanut butter). We use it with shrimp salad wraps or as a cucumber dip and it’s always a hit!”

  • “This was an amazing recipe!We had some leftover peanut sauce in the freezer, and when it was gone I needed a recipe for it. This one was great! I made it with homemade hoisin sauce. It was hard to make because our food processor doesn’t hold much so I moved it all to the blender. Served with Aromatic Sticky Rice #90126.”

  • “This was great! All 4 in my family raved over it, which is a rare find. Couldn’t be easier to put together, either.”

  • “This was a very good sauce! I made it to use in Recipe #182579, and it was delicious. I made up a double batch and put the rest in the fridge for later use. I was short on garlic, and somehow managed to be out of fresh ginger. Nevertheless, it was very yummy even with reduced garlic and ground ginger. I can only imagine how delicious it will be with enough garlic and with fresh ginger! I used Sriracha for the hot sauce and I used low-sodium soy sauce. I also used Adam’s chunky peanut butter (which isn’t sweet). Thanks so much for posting, Leslie O!”

  • “This sauce was just ok to me.A little too much soy for my taste but if you love soy sauce and garlic this would be super!Easy recipe to follow.Thanks!”

  • “A wonderful peanut sauce, easy to make and with just the right zip. I served it with peanut beef over Aromatic Sticky Rice #90126; it was a wonderful combo. Also worked well as a dipping sauce for spring rolls. It would be wonderful on skewered chicken…can’t wait for grilling season to come around again! Thanks! :o)”
