Coconut Curry Peanut Sauce

This is a wonderful topping that we use at the Basecamp for grilled chicken or vegetables, usually served with a side of black forbidden or jasmine rice to soak up extra sauce. A great side dish or topping is adding fresh mung beans, sprouts, grated carrots, and raw unsalted peanuts.

Yields: 4 1/2 cups
Prep time: 30 minutes

1 tsp canola oil
1 small red onion, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 serrano pepper, seeded and minced
4 tsp fresh ginger minced
4 tsp curry powder
4 tsp cumin powder
1 can coconut milk
5 Tbs organic peanut butter
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, minced
5 tsp tamari
4 tsp honey
1/8 cup ketchup
1/8 cup lime juice
3/4 cup water

Heat the canola oil in a medium saute pan over medium heat.  Saute the onion, garlic, pepper, and ginger until the onion is translucent.

Add the curry powder and cumin, saute over low heat for 1 minute.

Add the cocunt milk, peanut butter, cilantro tamari, honey, lime juice, ketchup and water.

Bring the sauce to a boil, whisking often.  Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes before serving
