Meandering down a path of Creativity

Hello there! This is going to just be a quick recipe post, as it’s a very busy week for me.

Have you ever looked at the list of ingredients on the sauces, marinades & dressings that you can buy at the grocery store? I have, and… ugh, all those chemicals! I don’t like eating stuff that I can’t pronounce! Some of the sauces that we buy are so easy to make and so much less expensive than buying them that it really doesn’t make sense to me to buy them!

Teriyaki sauce is one example of this. The stuff I use for mine is all regular pantry staples, and I think it just tastes better than the store bought stuff. So, without further ado, here is the super easy recipe:

Teriyaki Sauce


1/2 c orange juice

1/2 c gluten-free tamari sauce (you can use soy sauce, if that’s what you prefer)

1/4 c honey

1 tablespoon each fresh ginger and fresh garlic, minced or grated (if using powdered, I’d guess a scant teaspoon of each should do it)

1 tablespoon sesame oil (or olive oil)

optional: a tablespoon or 2 of sliced scallion and/or dried minced onion

put everything in a bowl, mix it up, cover and refrigerate. Let it sit for a half hour or so, then give it a taste and adjust the flavors to suit your preference. Use as you would use the store bought stuff.

See, now isn’t that easy?

    I never thought of making it with orange juice! I usually use pineapple, but orange sounds pretty delicious, too! I’ll definitely have to try it.

    • I tried making it with OJ when I ran out of pineapple juice and did not want to deal with running back out to the store. It turns out that everyone in the house actually prefers it with the OJ! If you really want to kick the orange flavor up a notch, add in a bit of orange or lemon zest (or dried peel). It really gives the flavor a nice bit of extra depth. Please let me know how you like it if you do try it!

  2. This sounds really good! I can’t wait to give it a try!
