  • ¼ cup smooth peanut butter
  • 3 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp sriracha chili sauce
  • 1 tbsp roasted sesame oil
  • ¼ cup 100% apple juice


  • Place the peanut butter, garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, and sriracha sauce in a mini-food processor and whirl to combine.
  • With the motor running, add the sesame oil, then the apple juice.
  • For Sichuan-style noodles, toss the sauce with cooked pasta, allowing 2 tablespoons sauce for every 3 ounces of noodles.
  • This sauce keeps, tightly covered in the refrigerator, for 5 days. If it gets thick, use a bit of the pasta cooking water to thin it out.
