Healthy Stir Fry Sauce


This healthy stir fry sauce takes minutes to make, has incredible flavor, and is healthier than any store bought sauce!


  • 1/2 cup reduced sodium tamari
  • 1/2 cup reduced sodium vegetable broth or water
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey (or maple syrup for vegan)
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder


  1. Put all ingredients in a small jar with a tightly fitting lid and shake until well combined. Alternatively, whisk the ingredients together in a small bowl. 
  2. Use with your desired stir fried meat and/or vegetables. Can be stored in the refrigerator for 5-7 days, but don’t add the arrowroot powder until just before you’re ready to use the sauce. 


How to Prepare a Basic Stir Fry

  1. Heat a large pan or wok over high and add a higher smoke point oil, like avocado oil.
  2. If you’re using a protein, cook that first. Give it a good sear and remove it from the pan when it’s not totally cooked. 
  3. Add your vegetables and cook. Once the vegetables have cooked, add your protein back to the pan. Add your sauce and stir to coat. Cook until everything is hot and the sauce is thickened. Serve immediately.
