This amount is enough for 2 to 3 stir-fries. Want a larger batch? Double the ingredients.


  • 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey
  • 2 teaspoons arrowroot starch or cornstarch
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 2-inch knob ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Add all the ingredients to a bowl and whisk to incorporate. Alternatively, add everything to a jar, close tightly with a lid, and shake to combine.
  2. To use the sauce, stir-fry your ingredients by themselves; then when everything is cooked through, add 3 to 4 tablespoons of sauce, stir to coat the ingredients, and turn the heat off. Be sure to shake the sauce before using since the ingredients may separate.
  3. Keep the sauce in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
