Sweet Teriyaki Sauce

  • Author: Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 10 mins
  • Yield: about 1.5 cups 1x


Just as great as store-bought, this Sweet Teriyaki Sauce is perfect on stir fried veggies and also works as a flavourful marinade for meats, tofu and tempeh.


  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free tamari (or coconut aminos, if on Whole30)
  • 3 tbsp coconut palm sugar (note: to keep this entirely Sugar Detox-friendly, swap for a pinch of stevia or monkfruit. For Whole30, omit entirely.)
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tbsp cornstarch, to thicken


  • Put all the ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until completely smooth.
  • Pour the mixture straight into a small saucepan over medium-low heat, and stir constantly for 5 minutes. (Stirring is CRUCIAL – the corn starch will sink to the bottom and start to get clumpy if you don’t!)
  • After 5 minutes of cooking the sauce will have reduced in volume. Transfer to a small jar and keep in the fridge for up to 1 week.
