Almond Butter Sauce - Diabetic Recipes 123

This almond butter sauce recipe is very low carb and very high protein unlike many sauces. It is simple and quick to make. Pour it over steamed vegetables. Add it to stir-fries.  I think it is especially good with chicken and veggies. Make it a little thicker and use as a raw vegetable dip. Make it thinner and use as a salad dressing (just thin it down a bit with water).

This versatile sauce is a diabetic's dream. Almonds are one of the healthiest foods a diabetic can eat. Very high in antioxidants, they are known to stabilize blood sugar. They reduce the blood sugar spikes caused by other foods when they are consumed at the same time. They have a glycemic index of zero.  Diabetics are at a much higher risk of heart disease and the monounsaturated fats in almonds protect the heart and lower LDL cholesterol levels. Apple cider vinegar is well-known to reduce blood sugar levels. Some diabetics drink it mixed with water every day for this purpose.

Ingredients For Almond Butter Sauce:

1/2 cup of all natural Almond Butter
2 tablespoon Soy Sauce (use a little more if using a no salt almond butter)
1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar (taste to see if you want a little more)
3 cloves fresh garlic minced and/or crushed
Water - amount varies depending on consistency you want
Pepper to taste (optional)
1 tablespoon of finely chopped cilantro (optional)


In a little sauce pan low heat, combine all ingredients except the water. Let the flavors blend for a couple of minutes and then add about a 1/3 cup of water and stir thoroughly. The sauce should be pretty thick at this point so you will want to slowly add water to get it to the exact consistency you want. Heat for a few minutes longer taste testing for flavor. Serve warm or cold depending on your needs.

Additional Notes:

You can substitute any nut butter for almond butter in this recipe. I especially like to make "cashew butter sauce."
