Peanut Sauce

  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1/2 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 4-5 Tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp sriracha
  • 3/4 cup creamy natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt or soy sauce

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, baked
  • 1 1 15oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 recipe peanut sauce, above
  • 1/4 cup crushed roasted peanuts
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped banana chips (optional)
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 1 lime, sliced into wedges


Peanut Sauce

  1. In a large bowl, mix the hot water, rice vinegar and sugar until completely dissolved.

  2. Add the sriracha and peanut butter. Whisk vigorously to emulsify. It will thicken as the sauce comes together and cools. If it's too thick, you can add a little extra hot water until you reach the consistency you desire.
  3. Add salt or soy sauce and taste. Add more sugar or sriracha if desired.

Stuffed Sweet Potato Assembly
