Paleo Pad Thai sauce

Prep Time

20 minutes

Prep Notes

This sauce can be used to make a traditional Pad Thai dish or as a sauce for a stir-fry over veggies and chicken or shrimp!

Cooking Time

0 minutes


Approx. 1 cup sauce


2 tbsp fresh lime juice

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

1 tbsp tamari, to taste

1/4 tsp powdered ginger (or about 1/2 inch fresh, minced)

1/2 tsp rice vinegar

1/4 cup almond butter

1/4 cup coconut milk or tahini  (I like the tahini for flavor, but the coconut milk thin the sauce if it is too thick)

1 tbsp maple syrup or 5 drops liquid stevia, to taste


Mix all ingredients together by hand or food processor until creamy.  Add to stir-fry with veggies and meat,  or see Paleo Pad Thai recipe for a more traditional dish!

Some veggies for stir fry.  

Choose any of the following:  onions, garlic, ginger, carrots, broccoli, snow peas, zucchini, summer squash, spinach, kale, bean sprouts

Proteins: chicken, pork, shrimp, scallops, tofu
