  • 1 Tbsp Fresh Lime Juice

  1. Add the peanut butter, coconut milk, soy sauce, rice vinegar, maple syrup, garlic powder, ground ginger, fresh lime juice and dried chili flakes to a measuring jug.
  2. Whisk until smooth.

*Use tamari or a gluten-free soy sauce if you want this sauce to be gluten-free.

*You could use cayenne pepper instead of dried chili flakes but if you do, start off with 1/8 tsp and see if it’s spicy enough.
