How to make this almond satay sauce
This almond butter satay sauce is super easy to make, and you don't need any electrical equipment. Only a glass jar, a stick or spoon to stir all the ingredients together, and a couple of minutes!
1 - Pour all the ingredients in a glass jar.
2 - Stir well to combine until the consistency is very smooth!
3 - Enjoy!! Couldn't be easier hey!
Hint: If you’re living in a cold climate place, substitute the coconut oil for sesame oil. Otherwise the sauce will be a bit solid. Or slightly heat the sauce before eating.
- Make it vegan - using maple syrup instead of honey
- Use cashew butter- instead of almond butter. It would work wonderful as well.
- Lemon - can be used instead of lime.
- Sesame oil - instead of coconut oil if you live in a cold place.
Play around with the consistency of the sauce to make it perfect for you! Adding a bit more of coconut milk and water, you will get a runnier consistency. I do this when I am going to use it as dressing for salad bowls, like my satay chicken buddha bowl.
