We haven't eaten satay sauce in our house for a very long time, like a lot of you I expect. But, food doesn't need to be boring when your dealing with food allergies, so today I want to share with you how to make satay sauce, minus the peanuts! It takes literally 5 minutes and if your family can eat peanuts then feel free to swap the Eskal Free Nut Butter with real peanut butter. I guarantee this recipe tastes as good as the real thing!
I used crunchy Eskal Free Nut Butter but if you kids are fussy (like mine!) and like things smooth then use the smooth version. You could even puree the satay sauce once it's made if you feel you need to. If you choose the No Added Sugar version you may just need to alter the seasonings a little to get the balance right.
I've also used Melrose Worcestershire Sauce in this to balance the flavours. It's fantastic in just about everything and I use it a lot. It's great in gravy, shepherds pie..... anything that needs a bit of a flavour boost. If you don't have any though and you NEED to make this recipe right away then I'd substitute GF Tamari/Soy Sauce or coconut aminos.
