Asian Dipping Sauce
Dip dip hooray for our Asian Dipping Sauce! This versatile sauce can be served simply with steamed scallops or prawns and makes a great dipping sauce for spring rolls and rice paper rolls.
It also doubles as a salad dressing for a salad made with shredded carrot, cabbage and spring onions.
Hoi Sin Sauce
Making your own Hoi Sin Sauce is a great way to cut down on added additives and preservatives. And with our recipe, it takes just a few minutes from scratch. In addition to subbing in for any recipe that uses Hoi Sin Sauce, you can also serve with Steamed Pork Pancakes, Char Siu Bao Pork Buns and Asian Chicken Noodle Salad.
Peanut Butter Fudge Sauce
It’s all a matter of perspective about whether it’s a good, or very bad idea, to be just a few ingredients and minutes away from this warm Peanut Butter Fudge Sauce.
Magic Chocolate Sauce
This chocolate sauce topping goes hard when it touches cold items, like ice cream, forming a crispy, crunchy shell. Our version is so easy and much healthier than store bought options and it’ll store in the pantry for up to a month!
You can also drizzle this sauce over your homemade popsicles.
