Sugar-Free Teriyaki Sauce

 

This is a photo of a yummy teriyaki chicken and cabbage stir-fry I made for Adam and I using home-made teriyaki sauce.

I am very careful about what sauces and condiments I purchase because most of them are pretty much pure sugar and other crap.  If you think its too much work to make your own, you're wrong.  Most are very easy to make yourself, just like this teriyaki sauce which is sugar-free and corn-starch free and can be gluten-free if you want.

Sugar-Free Teriyaki Sauce

1/2 cup, packed dates
Boiling water
Chunk of ginger, peeled
2 cloves garlic
1/3 cup soy sauce or coconut aminos
1/4 cup rice vinegar (unseasoned)
Optional: 1 tsp konjac powder

Place dates in measuring cup.  Cover with boiling water up to 1 cup line.  Meanwhile, place remaining ingredients in blender.  Add dates and water and blend until smooth.  Keep in fridge for up to 3 weeks.
