Paleo “Peanut” Sesame Stir Fry Sauce

Dec 9, 2011 by

I had a Girl’s Night In last week and since most of the girls were from my gym, everything I served was totally Paleo. This means I bought a huge veggie platter for the occasion. However, there are only a certain amount of peppers and snap peas women can eat. So I made this with the leftovers.

This sauce recipe is based on 4 (or 2-3 large) servings. I actually needed two pans to cook it in because I used so many veggies. The amount and type of veggies you use is your call. I used the following: 1/2 of each: red, green, yellow, orange peppers, 1/2 sweet onion, and 1 handful of snap peas. You really could add whatever you have on hand or like in stir fries. I used around 2 lbs of chicken or 3-4 breasts.

You could use beef, you could use tofu, you could use broccoli – it’s all up to you. I used almond butter instead of the traditional peanut butter used in these types of sauces to keep it strictly Paleo. Fresh lime and orange juice and a small amount of honey keep the sugar content low and tamari (or coconut aminos) keep it gluten-free instead of traditional soy sauce which is almost always made with wheat.

You could serve this with cauliflower rice or just a bowl like we did.

    I’m a nxious to try this. My accupuncturist put me on a diet for the next 3 months that is extremely strict: organic meats, chicken, and wild-caught fish and non-starch veggies. One serving of whole fruit a day (around a 1/2 cup). I can have some nuts, and he said I could have coconut or almond milk if I make it myself. I’m not supposed to have any food additives. He suggested stir fries, but I didn’t know where to start. I think this can fit it perfectly.

    This has become a favorite recipe at our house. I usually double the recipe and throw in tons of veggies – awesome with kale!
