Vegan Teriyaki Sauce
- 5 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce see note 1
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup see note 2
- 3 tablespoons water
- 1 tablespoon mirin see note 3
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes optional; for spice
- 1 tablespoon ginger grated on a microplane or fine edge of box grater
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 4 cups vegetables broccoli, snap peas & zucchini pictured
- 2 cups edamame shelled
Prepare sauce- In a jar or salad dressing shaker, add the soy sauce, maple syrup, water, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, mirin, garlic, ginger and cornstarch. Shake it up, then set aside.
Cook vegetables & edamame- Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the vegetables and edamame. Stir, cooking for 5-7 minutes, until vegetables are softened, but still retain some crisp.
Add sauce and thicken- Shake the teriyaki sauce back up, then pour evenly over the vegetables and edamame. Stir it up with a spatula, and simmer for 1-2 minutes, until the sauce has thickened and coats the vegetables evenly.
Serve- Serve the stir fry over rice, and enjoy!
