Organic Spicy Peanut Sauce

Do you ever get bored with your everyday foods? That same old, same old. Well I know I do and from time to time I like to switch it up and enjoy something different. I know that everyday breakfast, lunch, and dinner we enjoy over and over again is yummy but why limit your taste buds. Break away from that Ho-hum, you can make it in your sleep meal. This recipe shows you how to make a extremely easy and oh so turned up sauce. And not just any sauce, a spicy peanut sauce that will knock your socks off. With these few ingredients, you can make a sauce that can be used on any veggie, legume, or vegan meats. Works great as a marinade or a dipping sauce. I can honestly say (no judgement) that I ate some with a spoon...hey I said no judgement. Give it a try and let me know what you think, no judgement over here, grab a spoon and give it a try. Enjoy!

This is the easiest recipe EVER, you ready? ...put everything in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. That's it! You can place it in the fridge and let it settle. The longer it sits in the fridge, the better it gets. You can serve it on the side (hot or cold) for dipping, use it for marinating, or stir I'm your favorite veggies, beans, vegan meat, etc. There is no wrong way to enjoy this tasty sauce. Enjoy!
