A wonderful umami rich sweet and sticky teriyaki sauce that’s gluten free, allium, onion and garlic free and of course, low FODMAP. You can make this in a batch and drizzle over any dish, or make it with my Teriyaki Tofu Vegetable Noodles that are low FODMAP.
What ingredients do I need to make this teriyaki sauce?
Soy sauce or tamari (for gluten free): this is the salty umami base to the sauce
Honey or agave: use a neutral clear runny honey that isn’t too rich or floral, if you’re vegan and avoid honey you can also use agave syrup. If you’re low FODMAP use maple syrup.
Fresh grated ginger: this adds a wonderful zesty kick to the sauce but is still rather subtle
Coconut sugar: for added caramelised refined sugar free sweetness
Apple cider vinegar and mirin: mirin is typical in japanese cuisine and really rounds off the flavour, and apple cider vinegar adds tang to balance flavours
Cornflour and water: known as a ‘slurry’
