This is a recipe request. I use this sauce over steamed veggies and brown rice, and it is delish! This can also be used for a stir-fry or great with some chicken and plain ol' egg noodles.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine 1 cup water, tamari, brown sugar, garlic and ginger in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
  2. Dissolve cornstarch in 1/4 cup of cold water and add to sauce.
  3. Stir constantly to allow the sauce to thicken.
  4. If the sauce is too thick add a little water or tamari to thin.

Great and easy recipe. Skipped the corn starch and used it as marinade.

Oh my goodness! Yum! I can't believe this tastes so good for how easy it was to make! I only used 1.5 T cornstarch and I did use 3 cloves of garlic, but 2 would have been plenty. I used 4 T brown sugar and it is perfect!

YUMMY!!!! I used this for a chicken stir-fry. I cooked the chicken in a little sesame oil, added my veggies, then poured this sauce over all and let simmer for a few min. until thickened. OUTSTANDING!!! Only thing I changed was that I added a bit more garlic (well, ok, A LOT more garlic), and some crushed balck pepper. This is such a simple and versatile recipe! Thanks so much Theresa!! ~Manda
