Peanut Sauces

It’s easy to make low calorie peanut sauces for all your Asian inspired recipes, including a quick stir-fry.

  • Mix Walden Farms Asian dressing (2 tbsp. per condiment) with Walden Farms Peanut Butter (2 tbsp. per condiment).
  • Try 3 parts WF Peanut Butter to 1 part Asian dressing for an even richer flavor.
  • Take PB2 (powdered peanut butter) and reconstitute it for your sauce. 2 tbsp. of powder can count towards your optional snack.

Alfredo Sauce Options

Alfredo Sauce

I just love melting cream cheese and flavored Tofutti cream cheeses (non-dairy) to create luscious cream sauces that are on plan.

  • Use 1 tbsp. low fat cream cheese (1 condiment = 1g carb or less per serving)
  • Use 2 tbsp. Tofutti cream cheese for one healthy fat OR I tbsp. = 1 condiment (non-dairy).  These cream cheeses come in different favors, which add more bang for your condiment buck.
  • Walden Farms Alfredo sauce – 1/4 cup is a condiment. Acts to stretch the flavor out a long way. (non-dairy, calorie free)
  • Parmesean cheese – low fat is 2 tbsp. per serving; regular fat is 1 tbsp. per serving

You can mix and match any combination of the above together to get your perfect cream sauce.

Pink Sauce

  • Add your favorite low carb (under 5g per serving) tomato sauce to any combination of the above cream sauce, and 1/2 c. equals a green.

Sometimes you end up splitting your lean & your green. This is a great vegetable side dish that feels like a real meal.
Just prepare tofu shirataki noodles as usual, and sautee leeks with them. Add 2 tbsp Walden Farms peanut butter for one condiment.
Or mix and match the WF Peanut Butter and Asian dressing for one condiment (one tbsp each)
Or even add 2 tbsp PB2 or another brand like Jiffy equivalent of powdered peanut butter, with water to reconstitute to the consistency you want, which counts as your optional snack on the 5&1 and 4&2 plans.

A side dish that my guests gobble up and never know is “healthy” or “low calorie.”
