This simple ginger wasabi sauce is packed with umami flavor and works beautifully as a dipping sauce for Veggie Sushi, or as a stir fry sauce. It's vegan, oil-free, gluten-free, and nut free. #stirfrysauce #dippingsauce #healthyveganrecipes #asiansauce #sushisauce #stirfrysauce #danielsplaterecipes #glutenfreerecipes #nooil #oilfree


Units Scale
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger, grated or finely minced
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce (use tamari if gluten-free)
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 2 tsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 to 3 tsp ground wasabi powder (use more for extra heat)
  • 2 Tbsp Simple Homemade Date Syrup*
  • 2 tsp finely chopped green onion (optional)


Grate fresh ginger root using a microplane grater. If you don't have a microplane grater, use a sharp knife to finely mince.

Add grated fresh ginger and remaining ingredients to a small mixing bowl and whisk to combine.

Enjoy with veggie stir fry or veggie sushi roll.

*Note: If using a pitted date, soak in hot water for 5 to 10 minutes, then add to a mini blender with 1 to 2 tablespoons of water. Add blended date to remaining ingredients and whisk to combine.
