Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup peanut butter creamy or crunchy
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce check label for gluten free
  • 2 limes juiced
  • 5 teaspoons tamari (or gluten free soy sauce)
  • 2 12 teaspoons chile garlic sauce
  • 1 clove garlic microplaned or minced very finely
  • 3/4 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 to 1 tablespoon granulated sugar add to taste (more if you use "natural" peanut butter, less if you use traditional sweet peanut butter)

Instructions

  1. Mix all ingredients, except for sugar, together in a bowl. Taste and add sugar based on your preferences - peanut butter varies greatly in sweetness, so you'll need to make adjustments based on that.

  2. Store in airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week!
