No more boring dinners, this sauce will turn the “rice, fish and roasted veggies classic” into a drool worthy dinner you’ll crave. Pro tip, it makes a crowd pleasing dip for fresh rainbow rolls!

Makes 2 cups 


  • 1 cup peanut butter (unsalted/unsweetened)
  • ¼ cup tamari
  • 2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp. Sriracha sauce
  • 1 ½ tsp. maple syrup
  • 2 tsp. toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tsp. lime juice (about 1/2 a lime)
  • 1-2 inch chunk ginger, skinned
  • 3-4 small cloves of garlic*
  • ⅔ cup water **

*Garlic amount depends on your garlic-loving preference.

**Every brand of peanut butter varies in consistency. If needed, add more water 1 Tbsp. at a time to thin.
