    (adjust flavors to your taste)

    1 Large clove garlic, peeled
    1 Inch chunk fresh ginger, trimmed and cut into eighths (use fine grater if mixing ingredients by hand)
    1/3 to 1/2 cup water
    1/2 cup nonhydrogenated, unsalted peanut butter (you can use part almond butter since almonds are healthier)
    2 Tablespoons sweet white miso
    About 1 tablespoon shoyu
    3 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice or lemon juice
    Chili oil or ground cayenne pepper, to taste (optional)
    1-2 T maple syrup (I used one squirt of Nu Naturals liquid stevia)

    Mix everything by hand or in blender for a creamier consistency.
