Healthy Vegan Sweet & Sour Sauce

by - 2/12/2020 12:00:00 AM

If you follow me on IG one of my all-time favorite meal prepping meals is sweet and sour veggies paired with brown basmati rice and steamed broccoli. It’s super easy to make and doesn’t require a lot of cooking time. When I first started making this recipe a few years ago. I wanted a healthier alternative sauce. I’ve been using this recipe for the last couple of years and love it. 

Healthy Vegan Sweet & Sour Sauce 

  • 2 teaspoons arrowroot 
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice 
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar or maple syrup
  • ⅓ cup natural tomato ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon coconut soy sauce 
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 3 tablespoons pineapple juice 

  1. Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until completely smooth. 
  2. It will be really foamy and an insipid kind of color but the foam disappears when it's heated and the color brightens up.
  3. Pour into a pan and warm over medium heat, stirring constantly until it is nice and thick. 
  4. It takes about 10 minutes.
