I cannot take credit for this. I have had this recipe for a long time and do not know where it came from. If anyone knows of the original inventor of this recipe, please let me know. It is so good!
Sweet Garlic Soy Sauce
Whisk together in a small saucepan:
2 tablespoons arrowroot
1/4 cup water
2 Tablespoons honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 cup shiitake mushroom broth* or water
Put on stove to heat until boiling, keeping a close watch. Then simmer, stirring occasionally until mixture thickens.
1 clove garlic, crushed first, then minced
Turn off heat and let thicken further. Serve any temperature. Can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator in a glass jar. Goes well with nori rolls and spring rolls.
*Note: I routinely rehydrate shiitake mushrooms when I make spring rolls or nori rolls, so I often have this broth freshly made. One time I decided to use it for this and it added so much flavor that I kept it in the recipe.
