Thai Peanut Sauce

Believe it or not this was a last minute meal last week before we left town.  I was in a hurry and I had a big bag of snow peas in the fridge.  I thought I’d grill them somehow and find a way to put it over rice when it popped in my head that I could do some sort of peanut sauce.  Luckily I had all the ingredients in my pantry and fridge and it all worked out!  Just a side note – Authentic Thai cooking does not involve peanut butter.  They don’t really use it over there.  Glad I’m not in Thailand because I love this stuff!

Thai Peanut Sauce (original recipe from

To make vegetables:

  • 2-3 cups of vegetables ( I used snow peas, carrots, peas)
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 cup chicken, cooked
Heat olive oil in a pan and saute vegetables until soft.  Add chicken, then add to sauce.

To make sauce:

  • 1 13 oz. can coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup Thai red curry paste
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 Tbs salt
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbs apple cider vinegar or white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water

Put all ingredients into a pot and bring to a gentle boil, whisking constantly.  Let simmer for 3-5 minutes over low heat.  Remove from heat and add to vegetables. Serve over rice.

The whole fam gobbled this baby up.  We sure love our Thai food.
