There are loads of ways to use this sauce to add more black pepper to your day: Include it in your favorite sauté dish, pair it with eggs, or mix it into a soup. I love adding it to my gently stir-fried vegetables — such as bok choy, green onions, and carrots — to blend the flavors.
Yield: about 1 cup.
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, ghee, or butter
- 2 tablespoons honey or natural sugar (optional)
- 1/4 cup tamari or soy sauce
- 1/4 cup tomato paste
- 1 teaspoon dried ginger powder
- 2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
- Cayenne pepper (optional)
- In a medium saucepan, melt the oil and honey or natural sweetener (if using) over low heat.
- Once melted, whisk in the tamari, tomato paste, ginger powder, black pepper, and cayenne, if using, and mix well.
- Store in a clean, sealed container for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
