I think this is the most requested recipe at Sugar Ridge! Easy to modify with any seed or nut butter with each having a unique flavour. Thanks again to Caroline Dupont!
1 1/2 tbsp tamari
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp maple syrup
3 tbsp almond butter, or peanut butter, or substitute any seed butter (tahini is great)
3/4 cups water (less if you want the sauce thicker)
1 tsp garlic – depends how strong your garlic is and how much you like it
1 tsp ginger peeled and chopped
Optional hot sauce (we never use it in case someone wants it mild). You can always add hot sauce but you can’t take it away!
Process all ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Heat gently and pour directly over dish. You can make this thicker like a gravy by using less water, or serve it thinner over a rice bowl. Freeze leftover sauce and re-heat when you need it.
Serve with rice noodle bowls or thicken and serve with grilled tofu.
