Szechuan Peanut Sauce Recipe
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons grated gingerroot
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Asian chili sauce or 1 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (lemon at a pinch ? use a little less)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 lb noodles, of your choice
  • finely chopped scallion
  • chopped roasted unsalted peanuts

How to make Szechuan Peanut Sauce:

  • Blend all ingredients in blender until smooth.
  • Transfer to a jar with a tight-fitting lid (keeps 1 week, chilled; or distribute among 3 small containers and freeze what you don’t want to use within a week).
  • To use: Boil 1 lb Asian noodles or spaghetti until al dente.
  • Toss with ¾ cup of sauce (or more to taste), finely chopped scallions and chopped peanuts.
  • Note: In the winter, I eat these noodles hot.
  • In summer I rinse under cold water, cool and drain and serve them as a spicy noodle salad, often adding shredded bok choy, carrots, snowpeas, lots more of the peanut sauce, etc.
