TAMARI SAUCE

1/4 cup plus 1 Tablespoon Tamari soy sauce
2 1/2 Tablespoons roasted (dark) sesame oil
1/4 cup vegetable stock or water
1 Tablespoon Kudzu, dissolved in 1/4 cup cold water

In a small saucepan, combine the Tamari and oil and bring to a boil. Add the stock and boil for 3 minutes.
Add the dissolved Kudzu to the boiling liquid, and stir constantly until the sauce thickens.

You can substitute Shoyu or other soy sauce for Tamari in this recipe. This sauce goes particularly well with green vegetables.

(Double it, you'll be glad you did. Ojai22)

This is posted in the Greens thread but I thought it should go here, too.

TAHINI-TAMARI SPREAD

2 Tablespoons Tahini
2 Tablespoons Tamari
2 Tablespoons water

Place all ingredients together in a pan and cook, stirring constantly until they have blended and have the consistency of cream. Use over rice, flakes, vegetables.

From: Zen Cookery


I use this differently. The only way I ever used rice cakes was in Miso Soup. After it was cooked, as it cooled, I would drop in a rice cake. It would soften and break up. Not any more. One day I spread this on the rice cake instead.
It was unbelievably good. I had two with the soup before I could stop.

Try it on sliced polenta, on millet croquettes, on bread. Drizzle it on most veggies. Just try it - I promise you will like it.

This sauce and the one above are so great but I want to add one thing to the second one, the Tahini-Tamari spread. All the ingredients are equal amounts, but as they heat the water evaporates and the sauce becomes very, very thick so I add one to two extra tablespoons of water. Helps if you're putting it on rice, but extra thick is okay if you're spreading it on a rice cake. Suit yourself....:)

Geez, I love tahini!

SWEET and SOUR SAUCE

Yield: 4 servings

This sauce is good when you serve brown rice with fried foods such as tempura or satay-style kebobs of tofu or tempeh.


1 Tbs sesame oil
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 carrot, finely diced
1 cup vegetable stock or water
2 Tbs soy sauce
3 Tbs apple juice concentrate
1 Tbs brown rice vinegar
Sea salt
2 tsp kudzu, dissolved in 1/4 cup cold water


Heat the oil in a wok or skillet and saute the onion and carrot over low heat for 5 minutes.

Add the stock, soy sauce, apple juice, and vinegar and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer gently for 3 minutes.

Taste and adjust the balance of apple juice and vinegar to taste. Add salt, if needed. Stir in the dissolved kudzu and stir until the sauce thickens.


Variation: Add sweet corn kernels.

3-Ingredient Tahini Sauce For Everything



This recipe couldn’t get any easier.

Sprinkle a little salt and garlic powder on tahini and whisk.

Then add water and whisk.

THAT’S IT.

It’s hardly a recipe but it’s too good and simple not to share.
