Homemade Gluten-Free Peanut Sauce

December 19, 2013

Author Notes: The simple substitution of Tamari for soy sauce makes this peanut sauce gluten-free friendly. With some brown rice noodles in the cupboard, you can throw this dish together in less time than it takes to call for take out. PhoebeLapine

Makes: 1 cup


  • 1 inch peeled, fresh ginger
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon honey

In This Recipe


  1. In a small food processor or blender, combine all the ingredients and purée until coarsely combined. Add 1/4 cup warm water and purée until smooth. Add more water as necessary so the peanut sauce is similar to the consistency of ranch dressing.
  2. Garnish with scallions and serve alongside shrimp or chicken skewers, as a topping for a rice bowl, or tossed together with noodles. Extra sauce can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
