Spicy Almond Sauce

So I had a fantastic weekend in Vancouver last week. It was sunny, it was spring-like, and I was surrounded by friends and family, so what could be better?

Anyway, what I want to share with you guys today is the recipe for the spicy almond sauce from last week that I showed a peek of.

Yup, I’ve been having lots of it. I actually made a big batch that can sit in my fridge and I can use for an easy meal any time.

Spicy Almond Sauce
Makes roughly 9-10 2 tbsp servings.

1/2 cup Almond butter
1/2 cup water
1-2 tbsp Siracha (or other hot sauce of your choice)
1-2 tsp soy sauce**

1. Mix all ingredients together until they are a consistent colour. (I used a blender, easy-peasy).
2. Enjoy! Over noodles, vegetables, rice, edamame, or whatever floats your boat.
3. Store in jar or airtight container in fridge.
** I’m not a big fan of lots of soy sauce, it was such a strong flavour. If you like a more salty flavour though, swap out some water for more soy sauce.

Notes: you could totally use any nut butter in this (hmmm spice peanut sauce anyone?) and adjust the ingredients to taste. I found equal parts almond butter to water to be the best ratio but you could definitely add more or less for a different consistency.

  1. Yay for the spicy sauce recipe! I would probably use peanut butter because I always have that, and rarely have almond butter around, but it still sounds deliciously simple 🙂
