  • ¼ cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 Tbsp corn starch
  • 4 Tbsp honey


  1. In a small pot, whisk together soy sauce, water and corn starch over medium-high heat until smooth. 
  2. Once the mixture is warm, add honey and whisk until dissolved. 
  3. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium. Whisk constantly until desired thickness is reached. If it gets too thick, add additional water. Sauce will thicken as it stands.

Note: Jazz up your sauce by adding some favorite ingredients, such as: 1 minced clove of garlic, 1 tsp grated ginger, 2 Tbsp pineapple juice, 4 Tbsp crushed pineapple, 2–4 Tbsp rice vinegar (to taste)
