  • Juice of 1 orange (remove any pits)
  • 2 tbsp almond butter or sunflower butter
  • 1 tsp grated garlic (about 1 large clove)
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger (thumb size knob of fresh ginger)
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar or white vinegar
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 5 tbsp gluten free soy sauce such as Tamari or coconut aminos
  • 1/2 tsp Chinese Five Spice powder
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes or powder
  • 1 tsp tomato paste


Add all ingredients to a small saucepan and place over medium heat. Bring to boil. Turn the heat down to very low, whisk and simmer gently for 5 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. The mixture will thicken and darken. Remove to a ramekin and set aside. Store leftovers in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
