Paleo Easy Thai Peanut Sauce – Whole30, healthy, and with nut-free option !
Have you had the real Thai peanut sauce ? Most of the Thai-inspired peanut sauce in my opinion is either too sweet or sour. There’s not enough flavor complexity and depth to the sauce.
The real Thai Peanut Sauce should be a well balanced of savory, sweet, nutty, and tart flavors. It’s creamy yet burst of flavor in the mouthfeel. Luckily it’s really easy to make a legit version and you can use my Paleo Easy Thai Peanut Sauce for practically anything you like !
The real Thai peanut sauce uses tamarind fruit to give a lovely tart flavor. Tamarind is a souring agent in Thai cuisine. Most often you’ll find either tamarind in concentrate/paste or in dry block form. You can find tamarind paste at local WholeFoods or online here. You can see how I use them in my Paleo Pad Thai Squash Noodles recipe.
What’s a good substitute for tamarind fruit ?
Use apple cider vinegar to replace tamarind. It will give you an approximate taste and still makes my Paleo Easy Thai Peanut Sauce yummy delicious !

Check out the recipe below and you’ll see how ridiculously easy it is to make the sauce. Use the dressing/sauce for my Paleo Soy-Free Cold Tofu recipe or any salads or spiralized veggie noodle recipes, either way it’s creamy, nutty buttery, naturally sweet, and absolutely delicious !
