Recipe for Raw Almond "Peanut" Sauce

This raw almond "peanut" sauce it a variation of the traditional peanut sauce everybody knows.

1 cup raw almond butter
2 tablespoons of fresh grated ginger
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup agave nectar
1 teaspoon sea salt or 3 tablespoons nama shoyu
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 gloves garlic
1/4 teaspoon cayenne

This sauce tastes like commercial peanut sauce, but it's much healthier because it's raw. It doesn't contain transfats, which are bad for us. But it does contain essential fatty acids, which most western people have a lack of and which are very good for us.
You can eat this sauce with zucchini spaghetti, as a dip with your vegetables, inside wraps or as a salad dressing.
You can vary the consistency by adding more or less water.
