Servings: 1 cup


  • 1/2 cup coconut aminos
  • 4 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp grated ginger
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 tsp monkfruit sweetener (skip if making Whole30)
  • pinch red pepper flakes to taste
  • pinch salt to taste
  • 1 tsp arrowroot flour (optional - to thicken the sauce)
  • 1/4 cup water


  • In a large saucepan (you can use the same pan you stir-fried your veg or protein in), add all the sauce ingredients except the arrowroot flour and water.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • in a separate small bowl add the 1 tsp arrowroot flour, if using, and 1/4 cup water. Stir to dissolve the flour in the water creating a slurry.
  • Quickly pour the slurry into the boiling sauce ingredients and stir. Bring to a boil again.
  • The sauce will thicken up. If you want it thicker add a touch more slurry.
  • Pour your warm sauce over stir-fried veggies, salmon, chicken, whatever you like. Or use it as a dipping sauce.


Note: If you add the arrowroot flour slurry to thicken the sauce, it will congeal as it cools. To loosen it up again you will need to warm it up. This sauce is best served warm.
