How to make Garlic Pineapple Sauce
This Garlic Pineapple Sauce is incredibly easy to make in a couple of simple steps. Here's how:
- Put all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
- Transfer to a pan and stir over medium heat until you have a thick, rich sauce.
This finished sauce works really well in stir-fries, noodle/rice bowls, as a marinade, or as a dip with things like vegan chick'n tenders or spring rolls. We have been loving it spooned over vegan chicken breasts and rice woth a side of steamed broccoli for dinner.
Store Garlic Pineapple Sauce in a jar/sealed container in the fridge for up to 5 days or for up to 3 months in the freezer.

- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 small red chili , stem and seeds removed
- 6 tablespoons brown or coconut sugar
