In the office, I was speaking to my cousin Evan about the honey my bees in Elkton, MD make.  The honey is absolutely amazing!  Evan was telling me about a new recipe he made with it, and though I haven’t had it myself, it sounds awesome….so here it is.  Thanks Evan!

Recipe yields 3/4 cup.

  • 5 tablespoons creamy raw almond or peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium tamari, or soy sauce*
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons hot sauce sauce, to taste (Trader Joe's Red Ripened Jalepeno Sauce, or Siracha)
  • *For a soy-free sauce, try using coconut aminos instead


Combine the almond butter, tamari, honey, lemon juice and garlic in a medium bowl, and stir well to combine. Add the hot sauce one teaspoon at a time, tasting as you go until the desired spiciness is reached. (Be careful– I found two teaspoons to be pretty darn spicy!) Pour over your favorite veggies or noodles, and enjoy immediately. Store any leftover sauce in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
