09-27-2005, 12:48 AM
I posted this awhile back and didn't get a response. I'm hoping some of you creative types will be inspired to suggest some ideas. I love thai peanut sauce, it is usually peanuty, creamy, sweet, and a little hot. I would like to try to make it with almond butter. Here is a cooked recipe for it:
1 cup creamy peanut butter (do not use old-fashioned style or freshly ground)
1 can (14.8-ounce size) chicken broth
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce PLUS
1 teaspoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons chopped, peeled fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon dried, crushed red pepper
Lime peel julienne or scallions for garnish
Thanks so much!!!

chilove I recently made a raw peanut sauce, only it was with raw peanuts. I think you could replace the peanuts with almonds. Enjoy...I did!!
1/2 c coconut meat
1 c coconut water (I just used the entire coconut, all the water and meat)
2 c. peanuts, soaked 4 hours or more
1/4 c nama shoyu
1 c. chopped ginger
1/2 c. galangal (did not have, could sub ginger,but I just went with the 1 c. ginger)
3/4 c raw almond butter (ran out making fudge, so I used almond pulp)
2 small red chili peppers, seeds optional
1/2 to 1 c. water
3 tablespoons maple syrup (or honey,agave)
1/2 c lime juice
Blend everything but the lime juice. Add it just before using.
Makes a HUGE batch. Maybe 6-8 cups!!!
I made to go with Thai wraps, Yuuuuummy!
Both recipes came from Raw Food Real World
Hope this helps

I'd substitute olive soak water (I like using the liquid from the Moroccan Olives at NFL http://www.rawfood.com/cgi-bin/order/index.cgi?id=290619058550&d=single&item_id=0499&c=Organic_Food&sc=Olives&tc=) for the soy sauce, and for the chicken broth, maybe you could use the Boutenko's recipe for un-chicken noodle soup, eliminating the potato "noodles", carrot, parsley and mushrooms.
Unsure what to substitute for brown sugar. Maybe dark agave? Or mesquite meal? Mesquite meal has a light, smoky flavor, but maybe you could mix it with something to get a closer taste to brown sugar.
un-chicken noodle soup
2 cups water
1/2 cup shredded coconut
2 cups celery, chopped
2 tbsp shoyu
1 clove garlic
peper to taste (optional)
1 medium carrot, grated
1/2 bunch parsley, chopped
2 medium potatoes, grated or spiralized
mushrooms, sliced (optional)
blend water and coconut very well. add celery, shoyu, garlic and pepper and blend for about 1 minute. pour into large bowl.
add carrot, parsley, potatoes, and mushrooms.

I don't have exact amounts I just made to taste, but I made it very simply in order to meet the sweet, hot, tart, and creamy
raw almond butter
I only mixed these four ingredients with a little water to dilute the thickness it came out beautifully.
