An easy, versatile coconut peanut sauce! A satisfying sauce to use on noodle bowls, grain bowls, salads, and pizza. Gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan.
You guys know I’m all about the sauce. I make one dressing or sauce every.single.week because sauces have the magical ability to instantly elevate any roasted vegetables, protein, grain bowls, or salads to make them meal-worthy. It’s one of my favorite easy meal prep strategies.
This coconut peanut sauce was originally created to go with these sweet potato noodle bowls, but honestly… I use it on everything. From socca pizza to a simple broccoli and pasta dish, you can’t go wrong.
Coconut Peanut Sauce Ingredient Notes
Peanuts and soybeans are some of the most pesticide-sprayed crops, so try to get organic peanut butter and organic soy sauce if possible! Creamy, unsweetened peanut butter works best for this recipe. And this is my favorite gluten-free soy sauce.
If you’re paleo, this coconut peanut sauce can easily be made with creamy, unsweetened almond butter and coconut aminos (instead of the soy sauce) instead.

- 1/2 cup creamy, unsweetened peanut butter
- 1/2 cup canned full-fat coconut milk (shake the can before opening and measuring)

Paleo? Use creamy, unsweetened almond butter instead of the peanut butter and coconut aminos instead of the soy sauce. Add more salt, to taste, since coconut aminos aren’t as salty as soy sauce.
