Comments: 0


You don’t have to be choosy to choose homemade peanut dressing. It’s simple to make and you can create different flavors by substituting other nut butters, such as almond or cashew. Make it a family project with the kids. You may want to add a bit of sugar or honey to round out the flavor. This dressing also works well as a dipping sauce, or for basting grilled chicken during the last minutes of cooking.

Yield: Makes 1¼ cups


  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2/3 cup Rich Homemade Broth or canned chicken broth
  • ¼ cup hoisin sauce
  • 3 tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp chili garlic sauce
  • ¼ cup unsalted roasted peanuts, chopped


Place a small saucepan over medium-high heat until hot. Add the oil, swirling to coat the bottom. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 10 seconds. Add the broth, hoisin sauce, peanut butter, fish sauce, and chili garlic sauce and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, and simmer until thickened, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the peanuts. Serve the dressing hot, warm, or at room temperature. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator; it will keep for up to 2 weeks.
