Easy Satay Sauce

Enjoy this versatile sauce with cucumber slices, raw onion slices, and Baked Tempeh. Use your imagination and you'll agree that this sauce goes well with even rice and noodles.

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup minced onion
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
1 cup water
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Heat vegetable oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Saute onion and garlic until fragrant (or until lightly browned). Mix in water, peanut butter, soy sauce, and sugar. Cook and stir until well blended. Remove from heat, mix in lemon juice, and set aside.

For added oomph add 1/2 tsp of chilli powder to the mixture when cooking.
