Sweet & Sour Sauce

Some days when inspiration is on vacation and I have absolutely no idea what to feed my family I simply steam some vegetables and rice and add some sort of protein (e.g quorn, tofu, beans etc) and add sweet & sour sauce. It’s a very nice sauce and it’s so easy and fast to make. 

Sweet & Sour sauce. Serves 4
1,5 cups water
2 tbs ketchup
1 tbs maple syrup
1 tbs apple cider vinegar
1 garlic clove pressed
1 tsp grated ginger
2 tbs soy sauce
2 tsp corn starch
Mix everything in a pot and bring to a boil. Boil for about 2 minutes and strain sauce. Add sauce to whatever you think sound good. 

About Green Mom

Fredrica Syren, the author and founder of Green-Mom.com, was born in Sweden. Her mother was a classically trained chef who introduced her to many eclectic flavors and skills at a young age. Her mom’s passion for the outdoors and gardening planted the seed for her own love of nature and healthy eating. She received a degree in journalism and has worked as a print, Internet and broadcasting journalist for many years with big businesses within Europe and the United States. After her mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer and she with pre-cancer, Fredrica changed her career to become a full time yoga teacher and activist. A longtime world traveler, foodie and career woman, she was exposed to many facets of life, but nothing inspired her more than becoming a mom.

Years of food blogging developed into the cookbook Yummy in My Tummy, Healthy Cooking for the Whole Family. Upon the arrival of her second child, Fredrica founded Green-Mom.com. Her vision was to establish a site providing insight about gardening, home and personal care, baby & child, and of course food & nutrition.
