*Nutritional facts provided are only an estimate, accuracy is not guaranteed.
  • It’s important to use creamy peanut butter. Using chunky peanut butter won’t mix well and the sauce will be clumpy and not creamy.
  • Use the peanut sauce with your favorite Vietnamese spring rolls or chicken satay skewers.
  • If you like the sauce thinner, add more water to get the desired consistency.
  • The sauce keeps well for up to two days in the fridge, stored in an airtight container.
