Peanut Sauce Perfection

I have spent 12 years married to a man who adores peanut sauce. And I have spent 12 years perfecting th recipe! I finally found the perfect peanut sauce recipe, and I want to make sure it is on the food blog forever!

-peanut butter (1/2 cup)
-hoisin sauce (2 tbsp)
-soy sauce (1tbsp)
-garlic (1 mashed clove)
-dark brown sugar (1 tbsp)
-sesame oil (1 tbsp)
-chile – garlic paste (1 tsp)
-lime juice (from 1 lime)
-rice vinegar (1 tbsp)
-ginger (1/2 tbsp)
-hot water
Add all ingredients but water in a food processor and blend. There are times when I don't have an ingredient or two, and it always still turns out fine! Peanut sace is fun, because you can put it over everything and toss. You add the water to determine thickness of your sauce depending on at you are using it for. 

I cook rice, and stir fry carrots, broccoli, chicken and cabbage. When cabbage wilts, I leaves a lot of water behind so, I don't add any water to the sauce, I just put spoonfuls on top of my stir fry and It gets bended in. Serve over rice or toss with pasta! It's very versitile!
