Thai Sauce

This recipe is for the Thai Sauce. I guess I didn't really need to post a picture of my stir fry but the colours looked so pretty that I couldn't resist. I won't say anything about the stir fry because you can use whatever veggies strike your fancy. The top photo shows what the sauce looks like before cooking. No photo of the finished dish because my camera battery died.

Here's how I put together the sauce:

2 garlic cloves, minced
1 green onion, sliced
3 Tbsp lime juice, fresh or bottled
1 tsp sugar of your choice
4 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce *
1/8 tsp Tabasco sauce **
2 tsp corn starch

Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl and set aside. After stir frying the veggies, stir in the sauce and stir fry for a couple of minutes, or until thickened and bubbly. Serve over brown rice or noodles.

* I use 2 Tbsp of a regular soy sauce and 2 Tbsp water to cut down on the sodium
** you could use a bit more Tabasco sauce if you prefer more heat
