Multi Purpose Peanut Sauce
2 1/2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 1/2 tablespoons almond butter
1/2 small lemon (juice only)
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon maple syrup
2-3 garlic cloves minced (cooked unless you want the dip spicy)
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons rice vinegar
1/4 cup water
Mash all ingredients together, except water.
Slowly add water a few tablespoons at a time until the desired consistency is reached.
A really soupy mixture is great for adding over rice noodles or rice.
A less soupy mixture that clings to lettuce wraps, tofu, other appetizers for dipping.
Great over broccoli too.
Taste before serving. I find that the special ingredient that really sets it off in the right direction is the maple syrup. It really binds all the flavors together so you may want to add less or more depending on your preferences.
