3This is an old recipe from my co-op days, and I don’t remember where it originated, but I suspect I futzed with it quite a bit.

Add to a small saucepan:

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 1/2 Tbs. soy sauce (I think this is too much, try 2 Tbs.)
  • 1.5 Tbs. honey
  • 3 Tbs. toasted sesame seeds (optional)
  • 1.5 Tbs. rice vinegar (maybe too little?)
  • 1-1.5 tsp. red chili flakes
  • 1 cup broth or water (maybe slightly too much?)
  • 1? garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 Tbs. grated ginger

Heat and whisk to combine.

I made it as a dipping sauce for spring rolls, and it was tasty, but I felt like it overpowered the spring rolls. They need a lighter sauce I suspect.
