How to make this vegan peanut sauce recipe

One great thing I love about this recipe is that it can be made with either natural peanut butter or with PB2 to reduce the fat.

Begin by deciding if you want to use natural peanut butter, which is just crushed peanuts without any additives, or a defatted powder called PB2.

What is PB2?

PB2 is made by pressing out most of the natural oils from roasted peanuts and then grinding the nuts into a powder. The result is a powdered peanut product that is packed with flavor but contains 85% fewer calories from fat. It can be used as a powder or re-hydrated with water to form a paste.

If using PB2 powder, reconstitute it using the packaging instructions.

I personally usually use natural peanut butter, but this spring roll sauce is terrific either way.

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk together until smooth.

If needed, heat the mixture in the microwave for 30 seconds to allow for easier blending. If it needs to be thinned a bit, just add a little more almond milk.

Serve as a dipping sauce for spring rolls and wraps, over noodles, or as a salad dressing. It is terrific on Veggie Bowls too!

If you’re making a stir fry, this peanut sauce makes a delicious stir fry sauce with your favorite cooked veggies. Serve over rice or noodles, and your family will love it!

Recipe request from Dr. T. Colin Campbell’s family

In 2016, I was asked to be a cooking instructor and come up with a special vegetable wrap for the Plant-Based Cooking Summit with Dr. Colin Campbell’s family.

The wrap I created was a Collard Green Veggie Wrap and, to go with it, I came up with this vegan peanut dipping sauce. The wraps and sauce were a huge hit at the event. The participants loved that there was no cooking and it could be ready in 10-minutes.

Hi Chrysti- You're so welcome! I'm glad you are loving it. That peanut sauce is what really makes it special. Thanks for the great feedback!

Great little recipe. I mix it with water instead of milk (don't always have milk around). I add a pinch of sugar or aspartame or Splenda just to save on calories from the syrup. :) If you thin it enough, it's a great salad dressing!

Big plug for Dr. Barnard's "Vegan Starter Kit" book. I've made so many recipes, we love the lasagna and the black bean chili and many others! All of them so easy!

Do I need to double the recipe to use it on whole wheat noodles?

That would be a good idea, so you'll have plenty of the sauce for your whole wheat pasta. Enjoy!

I love using PB2 instead of peanut butter - it makes a great peanut sauce on WW

This is the best sauce. I make it all the time with some natural peanut butter from Trader Joe's. I have not tried PB2 but might next time. I use it with spring rolls. Perfect! and Easy!
