Sweet Chili Sauce

Make this sauce and then use it on tofu and in stir fries!

Servings 2 cups


  • 1 tablespoon red chili flakes
  • 1/2 cup golden maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder


  1. Add the chili flakes, maple syrup, vinegar, garlic, and 1 cup of water to a saucepan. 

  2. Bring to a simmer over a medium-low flame. Cook for a few minutes to reduce the liquid.

  3. In a small bowl, mix the arrowroot powder with the extra water and then add it to the sauce. Whisk in and cook until the sauce thickens, a minute or so. It will continue to thicken as it cools.

  4. Once completely cooled, store in a jar in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
