¼ cup Yumbutter sunflower butter

⅓ cup neutral oil (such as sunflower, avocado, or safflower oil)

1 tablespoon coconut vinegar

1 tablespoon raw sugar, coconut sugar, or date sugar

1 clove garlic, peeled

½ teaspoon curry powder

½ teaspoon ground turmeric

¼ cup water, plus more to thin

Salt to taste


Add everything to a high speed blender. Process on high for 30-45 seconds until well incorporated.

If the sauce is very thick, add more water 1 tbsp at a time until sauce has reached desired consistency.


  • The turmeric and curry give the sauce a sunny color — and also everything else they touch. Be mindful of your clothing and fingernails!
  • Be sure to knead or mix the sunflower butter well before starting this recipe; the oils will naturally separate between uses.
  • This also makes an amaaazing marinade! Try it on your favorite plant-based protein, like tofu, tempeh, or seitan.
