Description

An EASY recipe for homemade Teriyaki Sauce that is simple, healthy, vegan-adaptable and Gluten-free-adaptaptable to use as a marinade, stir-fry sauce or flavorful dipping sauce. Use this in Teriyaki Mushroom Wraps and Instant Pot Teriyaki Chicken


Ingredients

  • ½ cup low sodium soy sauce (see notes) or GF Braggs Liquid Aminos
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • ¼ cup honey or maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, minced
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, more or less to taste
  • —–
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch (or *arrowroot)

Instructions

  1. In a sauce pan whisk together braggs or soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, sesame oil, garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes.  Heat on medium low until it slowly simmers.
  2. Whisk water and cornstarch together in a small bowl and whisk into simmering sauce mixture.
  3. Allow to just boil and remove from heat.

Notes

If using regular soy sauce, use a scant half cup (like 6-7 tablespoons and fill to the edge with water, to dilute).

*Arrowroot can be substituted 1:1 for cornstarch.  (Important to use at the end of cooking, just before boiling, as continued heating will cause it to lose its thickening ability.)

You can add  less cornstarch for a less thick sauce, or leave it out entirely- especially if using as a marinade.
