Thai Dipping Sauce

We love a Thai dipping sauce that goes with everything. Thai-style nut butter sauce is a great add-on to salads, satays and is the perfect dipping sauce for veggie sticks and spring rolls. Kids won’t be able to resist this tangy sauce.

We adapted this family-friendly recipe from GimmeSomeOven to be gluten-free.

 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup nut butter

  • 1 (13.5 ounce) can coconut milk (full-fat is standard, but you can also use “light”)
  • 1/4 cup Thai red curry paste

  • 3 Tbsp. gluten-free tamari

  • 1/3 cup coconut palm sugar

  • 2 Tbsp. white vinegar

    1 tsp Ancestral Taro Powder

  • ½ cup water

  • 1/4 tsp. sesame oil

  • (optional add-ins: sriracha hot chile sauce, grated fresh ginger, and/or minced garlic)

Method

Combine all ingredients except sesame oil in a medium saucepan and bring to a very gentle boil over medium heat, whisking constantly.

Let the mixture simmer for 3-5 minutes over low heat; be careful not to let the mixture scorch at the bottom of the pot.

Remove from heat, stir in the sesame oil, and let the sauce cool for at least 5 minutes. The sauce will thicken as it cools.

Serve immediately or refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 1 month, or freeze for up to 3 months.

Enjoy with cucumber or apple sticks, on salads, and in stir-frys!
