This sesame ginger peanut sauce is thick, creamy, and oh so flavorful! You can use this versatile sauce as a topping for sweet potatoes- my favorite, or as a dip for vegetables and spring rolls. Make it in less than 10 minutes!

The recipe that I’m sharing today is one of my favorites! I originally came up with this recipe as a dip for spring rolls, but now I use it as a dip or spread for many other things- want to EAT MORE VEGETABLES? Keep this on hand! I love to keep this in the fridge with raw vegetables to dip. Who doesn’t love to dip?

I usually have all of the ingredients to make this on hand- my husband calls me the condiment queen! I have an Asian condiment section in my refrigerator that is always well stocked!

sesame ginger peanut sauce ingredients

For sesame ginger peanut sauce you will need peanut butter, soy sauce, sriracha, toasted sesame oil, rice vinegar, minced ginger, maple syrup, and water. These flavors go so well together!

My favorite is the toasted sesame oil– if you don’t have toasted you can use regular. Also, I use light soy sauce and rice vinegar, although regular will work as well.

Sesame Ginger Peanut Sauce is so EASY to make- just put all of your ingredients in a big bowl and mix well with a whisk.

You can eat right away, but it’s even better the next day. This dip will last about a week in the refrigerator, but it never last that long in my house!

Happy Eating!

    I had ate this peanut sauce on a sweet potato with crispy tofu. It was sooooo good. I could eat it by itself with a spoon!
