real food. real life.
In an attempt to write a quick post tonight, I was inspired by these pics and my husband saying he never knows how I make sauces. Well, here's one. And once you know one, you know them all. Super easy, versatile, and yummy. Enjoy!
Soy-Free Stir Fry Sauce
*I never measure this recipe, but I make it weekly. It is versatile and forgiving. Feel free to dabble and try different variations! Let me know what you try!
Time: 10 minutes
Ingredients: (makes about 1/2-3/4 cup of sauce... I think, never measured!)
2-3 tbsp coconut aminos (sometimes called coconut sauce, depending on brand)
1 tbsp sweetener of choice (I use maple syrup)
1-2 tsp white vinegar or rice vinegar or lime juice
3 tbsp water
1 tsp minced or powdered garlic
1 tsp minced or powdered ginger
few shakes of salt/pepper
1 tbsp corn starch
*optional: hot pepper flakes, peanut butter, tahini, almond butter, sesame oil, omit coconut amines altogether and add chilli powder/paprika to make a yummy sweet n' sour-ish sauce. The possibilities are endless!
What to do:
1) Add all ingredients except corn starch to a jar. Mix well to combine. Taste. Adjust.
2) Add corn starch and mix well.
3) Heat a small pot over medium-high, or use your wok and just push your freshly stir-fried veggies aside, and add your mixture. Whisk often until it becomes a little bubbly and starts to thicken. Reduce heat to low until the consistency is just how you want it. Pour onto of veggies and enjoy!
We really cooked these things. From scratch. On weeknights. And we even had time to do the dishes.
They have real, simple ingredients that you'll find in your cupboards. They're healthy and delicious. No lies.
