noodles, vegetables and any kind of protein for an impromptu dish of fried rice
or lo mein, or use it as a marinade for chicken, beef or tofu.
There are so many variations to this sauce staple- add it to Basic Coconut Curry Sauce with some Cashew Cream. Add a squirt of lime juice and Sriracha to give it a Thai-inspired flavor. Substitute it for that packet of dried seasoning the next time you mix up a late-night bowl of ramen. Dredge some leftover fried chicken in it for your own version of General Tso chicken.
Combine the soy sauce, broth, honey or agave nectar, vinegar, ginger and garlic in a mason jar. Seal and shake well, until incorporated. Use right away, or refrigerate for up to 4 weeks.
