I served it with a salad (romaine lettuce, red pepper, carrot, cilantro and green onion) and chicken but it would also go well with soba noodles.
1 or 2 cloves of garlic
2 to 3 tsp grated fresh ginger (I use the paste that comes in a tube)
3/4 cups smooth almond butter (the kind that is just almonds, nothing added. Presidents Choice makes a good jar)
3 to 4 tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tbsp soy sauce (or low sodium tamari or coconut aminos)
3 to 4 tsp pure maple syrup
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
2 to 6 tbsp water (to get it to your desired consistency)
In a food processor, process the garlic until finely chopped. Add the rest of the ingredients (except the water) and process until smooth. Add a tablespoon of water at a time until it reaches your desired consistency.
This will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 10 days.
