Easy Ginger Peanut Sauce for Noodles




My ginger peanut sauce is easy, delicious, and made using fresh grated ginger.
There is nothing like the addition of fresh ginger to make a recipe really zing.
Pour this simple sauce over gluten free pasta, zoodles, or use it as a dip for tofu.

If you've never purchased a piece of fresh ginger, it  may look strange and intimidating .. Many people shy away from using fresh ginger because they don't know how to peel it. Actually, it's very easy to peel.




How to Peel Fresh Ginger in Minutes

Just take the back of a spoon ( not a knife, not a fork)  and lightly scrape the ginger.. The skin will come off easily and the ginger will ready to use. Once peeled , it grates easily for any recipe.

Don't worry if you have a piece of ginger left over. You can freeze fresh ginger for future use.

Here To Freeze Fresh Ginger For Future Use
If you don't use all of your ginger right away, place the peeled piece of leftover ginger in a ziplock baggie and freeze it. It will stay fresh for about 6 weeks (or more)  and will be available for your next recipe. Also, once the ginger is frozen it is easier to cut.

Fresh ginger is a powerful antioxidant and very good for digestion.
Try this nutritious gluten free peanut sauce over GF noodles. YUM!

I also use this sauce for my spring roll recipe-

  1. Hi Judee!

    This sauce looks delicious. I'll need to hold onto the recipe for summer grilling (not that I don't grill in the winter, just the peanut sauce screams "spring" for me).

    Cheers!
