Recipe: Quick & Easy Teriyaki Sauce

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

ingredients:

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?
