This really is the BEST Stir Fry Sauce!  It’s homemade, healthy and so easy to make!


  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup tamari, I like to use low sodium
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup toasted sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic, finely grated
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons arrowroot starch
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds


  1. Add all stir fry ingredients to a jar or medium sized bowl and shake or stir until well combined.  This stir fry sauce can be made ahead and refrigerated until needed but I would recommend leaving out the arrowroot powder until ready to use.
  2. When your stir fry is about 3 minutes from being finished, pour the stir fry sauce over and stir occasionally until sauce is thickened and coats the back of a spoon or spatula, about 5 minutes.
