Please tell me that you’re as obsessed with peanut sauce as I am! PLEASE! I find myself putting it on a lot of dishes and figured that it would be a nice recipe to have on hand here on the blog :)

This peanut sauce is easy, creamy, and so stinking delicious!! I rounded up my favorite ways to serve it down at the bottom of the post.

I’ll be posting this Chickpea and Sweet Potato Buddha Bowl VERY soon as well and it’s my ideal dish to serve this peanut sauce on.

Other ways I enjoy my peanut sauce is by dipping veggies, putting it on a veggie wrap, and making spring rolls that serve as a peanut sauce delivery device :D

OH: I also LOVE putting peanut sauce on noodle like in THIS recipe.

How to make this Thai peanut sauce recipe:

This is one of those recipes that I almost feel silly telling you how to make since it’s so simple. But here we are :) I make this so often and love putting it on a lot of different dishes and even use it as a salad dressing which is amazing btw!

To make this easy peanut sauce recipe I have offered you 2 different methods:

  1. Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. I like this the best because I like it to be EXTRA creamy. The downside: you have to clean your blender.
  2. Finely mince the garlic and ginger and then simply whisk everything together in a bowl. The downside: you have to dirty a knife, cutting board, and spend the little bit of time to mince.

The decision is yours :D

Easy to make Thai Peanut Sauce Recipe!


  • ½ cup of peanut butter (creamy of chunky work here but a natural drippy peanut is best)
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • ½ cup of milk or water (I like the extra creaminess that milk adds)
  • 1 teaspoon of maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon of lime juice
  • 1/2 inch of fresh ginger (or 1/2 teaspoon of dried ginger)
  • optional: for a little extra kick, add in 1-2 teaspoons of sriracha


  1. Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. You can also simply whisk everything together is you first finely mince the garlic and ginger.
  3. ENJOY!
