Ella’s Thai Red Peanut Simmer Sauce

I haven’t actually tried this recipe yet, but I trust my niece’s culinary expertise.  Plus, it just looks so darn good.


  • 2 cans (13.6 oz.) of lite coconut milk
  • 4 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 4 Tbsp Thai red curry paste
  • 2 Tbsp gluten-free soy sauce (Tamari)
  • 3 Tbsp lime juice
  • 4 Tbsp agave nectar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper (optional for those who like a little spice!)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup crushed peanuts


  1. Heat coconut milk over medium low heat until it reaches a low simmer.
  2. Add the peanut butter, red curry paste, soy sauce, lime juice, agave nectar, garlic, jalapeño pepper, and water.
  3. Simmer for about 15 minutes to allow the flavors to mix and the sauce to thicken.
  4. Serve over mixed vegetables as a curry, or over rice noodles.
  5. Sprinkle the crushed peanuts on top of each serving.
