One of my favorite dipping sauces in the world is a beautiful, smooth and totally decadent satay sauce. Char-grilled morsels of meat are dipped into the sauce and coat your tongue causing your taste buds to do happy dances all the way to your belly.
Satay sauce, however, is SUPER bad for you… darn that full-fat peanut butter, coconut milk and brown sugar!!
So what do I do? I lament my misfortune, of course, but the restriction gets me thinking … how can I make a healthy version of this famous Thai sauce and work it into my weekly meal prep?
At the end of my week, I’m usually bored of whatever food I have in the fridge. My rebelling taste buds want something unique and this healthy Thai satay sauce recipe gives me the best of both worlds. It’s great on its own, but dare I say, perfect for spicing up your leftovers!
