If you love Asian-inspired meals, you need an all-purpose vegan sauce on hand at all times.

This ginger-infused garlic sauce goes great on everything from rice to vegetables to tofu, and takes just a few minutes to put together.

Not only is it healthier than store-bought versions, but it will save you money and encourage you to throw together more simple meals at home.

VEGAN GARLIC SAUCE

2⁄3 cup tamari

1⁄2 cup vegetable broth

1⁄3 cup rice wine

31⁄2 tablespoons organic cane sugar

1 tablespoon sesame oil

2 tablespoons organic olive oil

2 tablespoon fresh minced garlic

1 tablespoon fresh minced ginger

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1⁄4 cup water

Combine tamari, vegetable broth, rice wine and sugar in a bowl.

In a separate bowl, dissolve cornstarch in water.

Heat olive oil in a pan over high heat. Cook garlic and ginger for about 30 seconds.

Add soy sauce mixture and bring to a boil.

Cook over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes.

Add the cornstarch and water solution and cook until the sauce thickens to desired consistency.

I.O.N. Restaurant (previously known as It’s Only Natural) at 606 Main St. is one of Connecticut’s first vegan restaurants. Learn more at IONrestaurant.com.
