Easy Green Onion Sauce

This green onion sauce is perfect for drizzling over tofu, natto, salads, or as a dipping sauce for gyoza or savory pancakes.
Prep Time5 mins
Course: Dressing/Sauce
Cuisine: Asian, Japanese
Servings: 0.5 cup

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp garlic (about 2 cloves or 1 large clove) minced
  • 4 tsp ginger minced
  • 3 ½ tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 4 tsp rice vinegar
  • 4-5 green onions sliced
  • 4 tsp toasted sesame oil

Instructions

Microwave

  • Add garlic, ginger, soy sauce, sugar, and rice vinegar to a microwave-safe bowl and mix. Microwave in 20 second intervals 3 times, stirring after each interval (so microwave 20 seconds, stir, microwave 20 seconds, stir, microwave 20 seconds, stir).
  • Add green onions and sesame oil to the bowl and stir. Set aside to cool; the green onions will cook in the residual heat. Transfer to a jar and store in the fridge. Lasts about 2 weeks.

Stovetop

  • If cooking on the stovetop, you have the option to lightly fry the garlic and ginger first. Heat about 1 tsp of oil in a saucepan and add garlic and ginger. Cook on low, stirring constantly for 1-2 minutes until lightly browned. OR you can just simmer the garlic and ginger (step 2).
  • Add soy sauce, sugar, and rice vinegar (and ginger and garlic if not frying first). Stir constantly until sugar dissolves, then simmer for 1-2 minutes. Turn off heat.
  • Add green onions to a bowl and pour the hot soy sauce mixture over them. Stir in sesame oil. Set aside to cool, then transfer to a jar and store in the fridge. Lasts about 2 weeks.
