Lemongrass Peanut Sauce

This was my first time working with lemongrass and it so easy to prepare. Lemongrass offers a totally unique flavor that works well with coconut or peanut flavors, like I used here. This sauce is perfect to add with brown rice and a mix of veggies. 

Lemongrass Peanut Sauce (makes ~2 cups)

  • 1 stalk of lemongrass
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 clove coarsely chopped garlic
  • 2 tbsp chopped ginger
  • 1/2 cup shoyu
  • 3/4 cup water
  • salt to taste

To prep the lemongrass, peel away the hard outer layer and trim off the top and the bottom, then chop the lemongrass into small pieces. Add chopped lemongrass and all other ingredients into a vitamix/blender and mix completely. Once the lemongrass is thoroughly mixed in, pour the solution a sauce pan and let simmer on a low heat for ~20-30 minutes.
