I love sauce.

Looking for sauce recipes of all kinds because this family loves to lick the spoon! I can make hoisin sauce, teryaki, szechuan and a few others.

Will you share ANY recipes for sauces? Thanks.

  • Peanut Sauce

    1/2 cup low or no sodium vegetable broth
    1/4 cup chunky peanut butter (I use smooth)
    1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
    3 tablespoons brown sugar
    2 tablespoons rice vinegar
    2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger
    2 teaspoons chili paste with garlic (add to taste, it is pretty spicy)
    4 garlic cloves, minced

    Combine ingredients in a sauce pan. Cook over low heat until smooth; around five minutes.

  • My family's favorite is the white sauce recipe on the Wondra can ;). We're not big sauce users, but white sauce is used for a variety of things in this house, incorporated into a few dishes.
