Tomato Ginger Garlic Sauce

Tomato Ginger Garlic Sauce

This sauce is a little sweet, a little savory and gently spicy from the ginger and garlic; increase the heat with hot peppers or sauce.  It’s quick and versatile, adding depth to everything from rice and to vegetables to meat. It's also makes a great variation on traditional beef and bean chili. 


Makes 1-1/3 cups 

1 cup canned tomatoes, with some juice (you want mostly tomato chunks)

1 ½ tablespoons rice vinegar

2 tablespoons soy sauce, tamari or coconut aminos

2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped

2 teaspoons chopped or grated fresh gingerroot or dried, powdered ginger

1 to 2 teaspoons honey or other sweetener


To make the sauce, put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Set aside. You’ll use about half of it for this recipe and can store the remainder in the fridge for up to 5 days or freeze for several weeks.
