Eating well means being mindful of every calorie you put into your body, and cream-based sauces can be a nutritional whopper. But that doesn't mean you have to resign yourself to a life of meals drizzled with vinegar or topped with a tablespoon of salsa. You can still branch out and treat yourself to sauces that pack some extra zing, like this quick-and-easy Thai peanut sauce!
The combination of soy sauce, vinegar, and lime gives it a tangy kick, which adds another layer to the heat brought on by pepper flakes and minced garlic. Thai sauce's versatility makes it easy to adjust to your palette and incorporate into your diet, whether you're spooning it over chicken, using it as an overnight marinade, or making it your go-to dipping sauce for anything from chopped veggies to healthy wraps.
Low-sodium soy sauce
Juice of 2 limes
Peanut protein powder
3 tsp minced garlic or 4 cloves
Red pepper flakes
- Whisk all of the ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl. Use as desired.
