Favorite Stir Fry Sauce

I love this sauce. I put it on veggies, protein, grains ALL the time. 

 
 

INGREDIENTS

  • 2/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup rice wine or rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 3 teaspoon tapioca flour OR 2 Tbsp. arrowroot powder**

DIRECTIONS

1. Place all ingredients EXCEPT tapioca flour into jar and shake.

2. Once well combined pour a few tablespoons of liquid out and mix tapioca flour until combined. Whisk or use a fork until no lumps remain. 

3. Add tapioca mixture to other mixture and shake. 

**You can use arrowroot powder as well but you will need to heat the sauce up. This can be done by adding your sauce to veggies when stir-frying.
