Easy Peanut Sauce

I’m beginning to develop a little bit of a reputation.

I wish my reputation was something like:

“There’s Holley. She’s a fast runner.”
Or “There’s Holley. She’s a good driver.”
Or “There’s Holley. She’s super fashionable.”

I, unfortunately, am none of those things. I do, however, love peanut butter. And that’s apparently what is beginning to define me:

“There’s Holley. That girl who loves peanut butter.”

It probably has something to do with the links that I share with people? 29 ways to eat peanut butter at every meal? Don’t mind if I do!

Maybe it has to do with the copious amounts of peanut butter based recipes I post:

Peanut Butter Couscous Salad

Thai Peanut Cauliflower

Thai Sweet Potato Risotto

Spicy Peanut Noodles

Thai Peanut Soup

Thai Peanut Salad Dressing

It’s become commonplace for friends to bring me recipes that include my favorite ingredient. (Thanks,Renee!)


So I really hesitated about sharing this very simple recipe. I didn’t even take pictures of it, because it was such a last minute, “throw it together” mixture that it didn’t seem worth it. Also, I was really hungry and didn’t want to wait.


But then, after I ate some, and realized how delicious it was and remembered how easy it was, I couldn’t help myself.
And then I took a picture of the leftovers I ate for lunch.

And I will embrace my identity. I will be the peanut butter girl. In fact, I will be super peanut butter girl and all the world will breathe a sigh of relief, knowing that I am the ultimate resource for all things peanut butter.

You’re in good hands.

Easy Peanut Sauce

2 TBS peanut butter
2 TBS olive oil
1 TBS maple syrup
1 TBS Bragg’s liquid aminos
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp chili sauce
1/4 cup water


Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. The Bragg’s makes this pretty salty, but it’s not meant to be used strictly as a dip. Mixed in with noodles and vegetables or tofu, it’s the perfect concentration.
