Hi everyone!

I’m giggling with excitement to share this with you all. Simple, delicious, and in my opinion, not made nearly often enough.

It’s Sweet & Sour Sauce that is better than any take-out, and isn’t that terrifying shade of glow-in-the-dark red. Now, before we get to the recipe details, let me just say that I made the meal in the photo a couple of nights ago. We had baked Taproot chicken thighs from our CSA box and a simple fried rice with chopped kale, carrots & onions, all slathered in sweet & sour goodness. Besides being simple enough to whip up for a busy weekday meal, this sauce is 100% vegan, so you can use it to top anything your heart desires.

Seriously, it’s so easy & inexpensive to make that you’ll find yourself wondering how you were ever able to stomach the sickly sweet & sticky, bright red version.


Sweet & Sour Sauce

1 can pineapple tidbits

1.5 tbsp cornstarch

1/4 cup ketchup

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup cider vinegar

2 tbsp soya sauce


Drain pineapple & reserve juice. In a sauce pan, add all ingredients except pineapple, pineapple juice & cornstarch and bring to a gentle boil on med heat. Dissolve cornstarch in pineapple juice and add to pot while constantly stirring. Add pineapple chunks and continue stirring until sauce thickens (about a minute)

Now, here comes the difficult part. Pour it over something delicious and happily spoon it into your face.

I’m not kidding. That’s all there is to it.

So what delights will you poured it over?

Now I’m going to go love up some local food, and I’ll see you all next week!
