Teriyaki Sauce is one of those condiments that is typically loaded with sugar, sometimes even high-fructose corn syrup, sometimes additives and unhealthy oils.
It’s so simple to make homemade, healthy teriyaki sauce so it’s worth the few minutes it takes to whip it up. I just made a few swaps to make it a healthier version.
