    It is even easier and tastier to buy peanuts, and grind them in a food processor, to create your own peanut butter. No sugar, no salt. Just peanuts, and a teaspoon of arachide oil.

    I was wandering why there wasn't a recipe for peanut butter!

    Can you use cream instead of coconut milk

    What is the peanut sauce spread over in the picture? It looks like potatoes, maybe? Hopefully??

    My bet that is chicken.

    For those who want a true Thai flavor, replace the soy sauce with a much smaller amount of fish sauce (to taste). Thai recipes do not use soy sauce to make their dishes salty ;)

    This is delicious. I added an extra spoonful of peanut butter to thicken as I had used coconut milk.
    Can anyone tell me how long it is safe to keep this in the fridge? Thank you.

    Sauces like this will generally keep safely in the fridge for at least 4-5 days.

    Peanut sauce is generally sweet. I use unsweetened peanut butter and was wondering if I could use a bit of Splenda in it to fill in the sweetness, when I make peanut sauce? Is Splenda allowed on the KETO diet? Thank you, marci

    Thirty years ago I lost 50 lbs on the Atkins diet in two weeks, then I joined WW and reached my goal weight. I'm glad now we have the KETO diet, which I have been on for 5 days and have already lost 4 lbs. I do take a water pill and high blood pressure medicine for heart disease. Will these medication effect my weight loss? Thanks, Marci
