How to make spicy peanut sauce

I made some really tasty peanut sauce a couple days ago that we had on some tofu, spinach fettuccini, red and yellow bell peppers, and grated carrots and cucumbers. It was a build your own noodle salad.


2 peeled garlic cloves
1 peeled piece of fresh ginger (about the size of your pinky)
1+ teaspoon of hot chile paste
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 1/2 tablespoons sugar
3 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons sesame oil
3+ tablespoons of water

Combine it all in your Cuisinart with the blade. Run for 30 seconds, pulse 10 times or so, run for another 30 seconds.

It should be pourable. If it's too thick add a bit more water.

Enjoy on noodles, garden rolls, veggies...
