The general public tends to shy away from healthy dishes because they imagine them to be bland. They are worried their taste buds will go on strike from lack of flavour! Well I’m here to stop that from happening. The taste buds have written up their requests and I’m about to deliver.
This asian inspired sauce leaves a party in your mouth and takes simpler dishes up a notch. Growing up I always struggled with shying away from the healthier dishes, never excited to try. Luckily my taste buds have changed since I was little, as I was very picky but healthier dishes still didn’t excite me. It wasn’t until I started this journey again and actually bought some amazing cook books and experimented in the kitchen that I finally see all the possibilities available. There are TOO many I tell yeah!
So let’s get saucy!
- 1/2 cup Briggs soy sauce (Gluten free)
- 4 Tablespoons coconut nectar
- 2 Tablespoons Rice Vinegar
- 1 Tablespoon Sesame Seed Oil
- 1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
- 1 Teaspoon Chinese Five Spice
- 2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
- 2 inches of grated Ginger
- 4 Tablespoons Tahini (optional)
- Add all ingredients into a blender and get the party started!
This sauce is very versatile, can be used on rice bowls, wraps, and salads. These are just a few suggestions, but don’t limit yourself just to those options by any means. If all you have is regular soy sauce at home, that would still taste great it just wouldn’t be gluten free.
My favourite dish to pair it with is quinoa bowl. Above I’ve added mushrooms, onions and raw carrots. It’s just delightful.
I’d love to hear how your saucy ginger turned out and what ended up getting saucy!
