Simple Tempeh Stir-Fry Salad with Peanut-Ginger-Lime Sauce

I’ve recently been trying to eat healthier. One of the great things about working from home is that you have your full kitchen available to you at lunch. Today, I decided to whip together a quick stir-fry salad, something I had never tried before but figured could help me get some vegetables and taste delicious. I was right.

I made up the peanut-ginger-lime sauce on a whim as we didn’t have anything but a garlic-y salad dressing and I really loved the sweet/tart/nutty flavors that emerged. I think the sauce would work great on noodles, too.


Easy Peanut Ginger Lime Sauce

Serves: 1

  • 1 Tbsp Low-Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Lime Juice
  • 1 Tbsp Peanut Butter (smooth)
  • 1 tsp Agave Nectar
  • Powdered Ginger to taste

Mix soy sauce, lime juice, peanut butter, and ginger together in small bowl until well blended. Add agave nectar for sweetness, if desired.
