This recipe is very popular with clients and my own children. You can easily ditch the syrups and juice in sauces, and maximise the flavour with tangy rice vinegar, rich tomato paste and plenty of spices. Adding a few chunks of pineapple provides a wonderful texture and natural sweetness without the need to resort to added syrups. If you need a little extra sweetness you can add a little xylitol or pinch of stevia but as the pineapple is sweet you may find you don’t need it.
Serves 4 – 6.
You can pour this sauce over cooked vegetables or use as a dipping sauce. You can store the sauce in the fridge for 2-3 days. It can also be frozen for up to 3 months.
