  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder (optional, but thickens the stir fry sauce)


  1. Combine ingredients in a jar. Add all ingredients except for sesame oil to a glass jar with a lid and shake or whisk vigorously until arrowroot powder is dissolved and everything is well combined. Add sesame oil and shake again.
  2. To use: For a stir fry that makes about 4 servings use roughly 1/2 cup of stir fry sauce, or more or less to taste. Remember to shake well to incorporate the arrowroot powder before using.
