Thai & Vietnamese Cooking/Asian Sauces
QUESTION: I was wondering if there was a good recipe for an asian style sauce that is very healthy and can be poored lightly or liberally on just about anything?
ANSWER: Hi James,
Thank you for your questions regarding Asian sauces. There are many types of Asian sauces. Were you looking for something soy sauce based or cream based ie yogurt etc ?

QUESTION: Probably more along the lines of soy.
Here is my one of my favorite sauces I use for dipping etc.
1/2 cup Low sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons Freshly grated ginger
2 table spoons cup rice wine vinegar
1 sprig spring onion, chopped
1 Thai chili pepper, chopped (if you do not like spicy you can omit the pepper)
Mix all of the ingredients. If its too salty you can add a little bit of water to thin out the saltiness.
You can use this sauce for dipping, to pour over rice, vegetables etc. If you refrigerate it , it can last up to a week in the refrigerator.
Let me know if it works out for you.
Thank you and good luck!
