How To Make Sweet and Sour Sauce (Vegan)

Start making your vegan sweet and sour sauce by adding to a pan: apple cider vinegar or rice vinegar, brown sugar, ketchup, soy sauce and pineapple juice from a can (save pineapple chunks for stir fry).

Bring this to a soft boil on medium-high heat.

In the meantime, in a small bowl, mix together cornstarch or potato starch and 2 tbsp water to create a starch slurry. This will help thicken your sauce.

Pour the starch slurry into the pan and stir constantly on medium heat until small bubbles start to form and the sauce thickens.

    Enjoyed this sweet and sour sauce. I like that the recipe used the juice from the pineapples. I did add a bit of salt.
