1Tablespoonfresh gingerfinely grated on a microplane
1Tablespoongrated orange peel

1/4teaspoonxanthan gumoptional for thicker sauce
Place the Lakanto sweetener, tamari, pineapple juice (or water), garlic, ginger, and cayenne in a medium sauce pan.
Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
Add the stevia, orange zest, sesame oil and xanthan gum. Whisk together and continue cooking for a minute or so until the sauce starts to thicken.
Xanthan Gum is used to thicken this sauce in place of cornstarch. It will give your sauce a gel type consistency when cold, so you will need to reheat the sauce before using. It can be omitted if you prefer.
You can substitute Sugar Free Teriyaki Sauce in any of your favorite recipes, or these recipes below.
For Whole30 & Paleo substitute 1/2 cup of date paste for the sweetener and omit the xanthan gum. Substitute coconut aminos for the tamari and add 1 teaspoon of salt. I have not actually tried it myself, but it should work…fingers crossed.
This recipes makes approximately 1 cup of sauce. Two Tablespoons of sauce per serving equals 8 servings.
