Oil-Free Vegan Thai Peanut Sauce


Jump to Recipe

As you probably already figured out, I love Thai food. The variations in flavors — from sweet to savory to spicy, and sometimes all three together — and fresh, colorful veggies keep me coming back for more. This oil-free vegan peanut sauce recipe definitely qualifies. I’ve found you can take almost any Thai dish and convert it to a vegan or WFPB recipe. One of my favorites to order in a Thai restaurant is vegetables with peanut sauce. Add some red pepper flakes to this sweet-savory dish and I’m all over it!

So of course I decided to make an oil-free vegan version of this awesomesauce and send it your way! This one is always a hit at home, especially with the kids, who probably think I’m just melting peanut butter on their veggies… but hey, they’re eating their veggies! This oil-free vegan Thai peanut sauce has so many different uses. Let me know in the comments how you used it!
