Stir Fry Sauce (Whole 30)

When I did my first Whole 30 back in 2017,  I thought I would live on stir fries.  They are quick, easy and infinitely variable.  I have pages of stir fry sauces.  The problem is almost all stir fry sauces have some kind of sugar in them.  Sugar is not allowed on the Whole 30 and most stir fry sauces don’t taste good without it.

The recipe this sauce originally came from Eat, Drink, Paleo.  Being Paleo, it was already a clean recipe.  It just needed a little tweaking to be Whole 30.  I omitted the honey,  changed the acid to rice vinegar instead of lime juice and since I like my stir fry sauces a little thicker than usual, added arrowroot.  The result is an excellent sugar-free stir fry sauce, that along with Melissa’s stir fry sauce and Nom Nom Paleo’s basic stir fry sauce, put stir fries back on the menu for my next Whole 30.

In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients.  Mix well.  Use in any stir fry recipe.

  1. When I did my first Whole 30 last year, I was absolutely appalled at the amount of sugar in everything. I will be trying more sugar free stir fry sauce recipes. Want to be a taste tester?
