Spring Rolls with Peanut Love Sauce

January 6, 2008 at 12:12 am 7 comments


This recipe was given to me by a wonderful, eclectic mama that I met while I was in college. They would have people over to their little on campus apartment for one reason only…to serve the Peanut Love Sauce. It’s that amazing.

Peanut Love Sauce
4 T almond butter
2 T creamy organic peanut butter (for peanut allergies, substitute almond butter for all)
3 T nama shoyu or soy sauce
2 T extra virgin olive oil
2 T apple cider vinegar
1 T honey or maple syrup
2 soft dates, pitted
2 green onions, finely chopped
1-2 garlic cloves
1 T ginger, finely minced
½ cup chopped cilantro
½ cup chopped parsley
1-2 t dried chili pepper
¼ – ½ cup fresh water

In a blender, blend almond and peanut butter (optional), soy sauce, olive oil, vinegar, honey or maple syrup, dates, green onions, garlic, ginger, cilantro, and parsley until smooth. Add fresh water a little at a time as necessary to blend smooth. The sauce should be pourable, but should still be thick. Set aside half the sauce and add the chili pepper…so you have one hot and one not

Dip your spring roll into the sauce…and experience heaven on earth. Ahhhhhh…..

    This sounds so wonderful. I might even make it tonight. Do you have a spring roll recipe you like?

    I just use rice paper (soaked in warm water to make them pliable) filled with cucumber, mint, cilantro, lettuce, skinny rice noodles, and sometimes firm herbed tofu. I wrap them all individually in saran wrap to keep them for several days in the fridge. They’re a great snack!

    I made this tonight and you’re not kidding! I subbed cashew butter for the almond and made my spring rolls with cucumber, rice noodles, sunflower seeds, hard apples, spinach and a dash of parsley. This sauce *is* that amazing. I need to come up with some other leftover uses for it!

    Sounds delicious!!!! I’ve made similar rolls before…. a really fun idea is adding a few fresh mint leaves

    Yes….I always put mint in mine too! It’s deliciously “light”. Yum.

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
