The Ultimate Dipping Sauce
If you’ve ever had thai food, or enjoyed a crisp, refreshing spring roll, you know the magic that is peanut sauce. It’s creamy, salty, sweet all at once and makes the ultimate dipping sauce for almost anything. Mix with with some additional lime juice and olive oil and you’ve got a terrific salad dressing.
The only problem? It’s main ingredient is peanut butter. Which isn’t ideal when you’re allergic to peanuts. And almonds. And hazelnuts.
Thankfully, I’ve found a secret ingredient that subs seamlessly for peanut butter in every recipe.
And today, I’m using this secret ingredient to make my version of the popular Thai dipping sauce with chicken satay.
Sunflower Seed Butter
Peanut allergy having peanut lovers, this ingredient was made for you. Made with real sunflower seeds, this sunbutter is my new go-to nut butter knock off.
It has all of the textural elements you need from peanut or almond butter, without any of the allergens. Plus, it’s also high in protein and healthy fat.
If you’re not allergic to peanuts, you can totally use your favorite peanut or nut butter in place of sunbutter, but I highly recommend this stuff to everyone!
