Healthy Homemade Teriyaki Sauce that tastes better than store bought and isn't full of ingredients you can't pronounce. It tastes great in stir-fries, as a marinade, over grilled chicken or veggies, and drizzled on Asian inspired salads and wraps.
I have always loved teriyaki sauce. The sticky, sweet, savory sauce makes everything taste better in my opinion and it is something I almost always have on hand to marinate meats, create quick stir-fries, and drizzle over Asian inspired meals. However as I try to focus on eating more whole and natural foods, I have quickly realized that my favorite store bought versions are packed with corn syrup and all kinds of ingredients I can't even begin to pronounce.
Luckily for us, it's surprisingly easy to create a healthy homemade teriyaki sauce at home that tastes just as good as the store bought, even better in fact. All you need is some soy sauce, pineapple juice, cornstarch, honey, rice vinegar, garlic, and ginger - ingredients you probably already have at home. And in about ten minutes, you will have a sweet and savory, thick teriyaki sauce that you can use with almost anything.
Now let's talk about ways to use this Healthy Homemade Teriyaki Sauce because it really does taste good on everything.
Depending on how you like your teriyaki sauce, you can also spice up this sauce to make it taste just like your favorite store bought version. If you like a spicy sauce, add some Sriracha or Asian chili paste. For a sweeter sauce, add more honey to the recipe. If you love garlic or ginger, consider adding some extra. You can also add some sesame seeds to the mix and a touch of sesame oil to bring out more of a sesame flavor.
