Easy Teriyaki Sauce

Easy Teriyaki Sauce

no processed sugar

From our friends at My Whole Food Life

Have you looked at your store bought teriyaki sauce? 
Most of them are loaded with highly refined sweeteners like high fructose corn
syrup.

This homemade teriyaki sauce recipe is made of just a
handful of real ingredients and no processed sugars!  Keep in mind,
since there is less sugar, it will not be as sweet as store bought sauce. 
But we promise it is delicious though!

1 1/2 T maple syrup

Instructions:

Easy Teriyaki Sauce:

In a sauce pan, mix all the ingredients on
low heat for about 5-7 minutes.

2.     
Transfer to a mason jar.

Teriyaki Tofu Stir Fry:

1.      
Preheat oven to 375.

2.     
Cut the tofu in cubes and place into a
container.

3.     
Pour the teriyaki mixture into the container and
let it marinate for at least an hour.

4.     
When it’s done marinating, use a slotted spoon to scoop up the tofu and lay it on a
lined baking sheet .

5.     
Bake for about 35-45 minutes, stopping halfway
through to flip and brush more sauce on the tofu.

6.     
Once the tofu is done, set it aside.

7.     
In a large saucepan , heat the cooked quinoa with the
remaining sauce.

8.    
Turn down, cover and simmer for about 5-7
minutes.

9.     
Lastly add the spinach and cook just until it is
slightly wilted.

10.  Uncover
and let the remaining sauce boil off. Top with the roasted tofu. Enjoy!

Notes:

·        
The mixture will thicken slightly in the fridge.
When ready to use, you can try the quinoa dish. If tofu isn’t your thing, feel
free to use your favorite protein.
