Recipe Notes

Meal Prep and Storage

  • To Prep-Ahead: Homemade peanut sauce can be prepared up to 3-4 days in advance, however the sauce will gradually start to lose some of its flavor over time.
  • To Store: Prepared peanut sauce can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
  • To Freeze: Leftover sauce can be frozen in an airtight, freezer-safe container for up to 4-6 months.
  • To Reheat: Stored peanut sauce may be left out on the counter for an hour before serving, microwaved in the oven for 10-20 seconds, or heated in a small saucepan on the stove, constantly stirring until smooth and creamy.
