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.

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 (rinse thoroughly, then dry skillet fry them until they are so dry that you can see one noodle edge is getting crispy!), 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.

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