Homemade Stir-Fry Sauce

Have you ever read the ingredients on a bottle of prepared sauce?  Full of corn syrup, caramel color and artificial flavoring, these products can irritate the body leading to inflammation and sluggish energy. If you need a simple clean-eating stir-fry sauce that is quick to make at home, create your own sauce rather than ingesting all that sugar and preservatives in a bottled product. Home-made sauce provides brighter flavors to your dish and health-boosting properties. Choose fresh herbs and spices for added vitamins, minerals, antioxidants in your sauce.

1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce or Tamari sauce (organic preferred)
2 Tbs. toasted sesame oil
1 Tbs. pure maple syrup (organic preferred)
1 Tbs. siriacha sauce (a hot sauce made from chili peppers, vinegar and garlic)
1 Tbs. rice vinegar
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tbs. fresh ginger, grated

Whisk ingredients together in a small bowl.  Use to stir-fry vegetables, rice, and/or noodles.  Makes a great marinade for tofu or meat!  Keep sauce in the refrigerator for up to a week.
