Vegan “Cheesy” Lime Thai Sauce 3 Ways
You guys, this sauce isn’t like any Thai sauce you’ve ever tried. It’s the perfect blend of Thai spices, refreshing lime and cilantro, and just “cheesy” enough to give it that extra flare. No joke, this sauce goes with literally EVERYTHING! Don’t believe me? I have three recipes below that perfectly pair with this sauce!
But first things first, let’s make the sauce!
What you’ll need:
1 tbsp oil
2 tsp freshly grated ginger
1 can of Trader Joe’s full fat coconut milk (This is the only coconut milk I can find without any gums)
1 tbsp coconut aminos
2 tbsp Thai Kitchen Red Curry Paste (I get mine from Whole Foods but I’ve linked it on Amazon here)
Juice from 1 lime
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp chipotle spice
In a sauce pan, saute fresh grated ginger in oil for a few minutes, then add all over ingredients and stir occasionally for roughly 10 minutes until warmed all the way through and flavors are fragrant.
Once you have your sauce the possibilities are literally endless!
