Sugar Free Sweet Chilli Sauce Recipe
Ditch the sugary sweet chilli sauce you can buy in the shops and make your own healthy low carb version! Thick, spicy, sweet and absolutely delicious. A family favourite.
2 tbsp red chilli chopped
2 tsp ginger chopped
2 tsp garlic chopped (2 cloves)
1/2 cup / 120 ml apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup / 120g powdered sweetener
1/2 tbsp coconut aminos or soy sauce / tamari
1/2 cup / 120 ml hot water
1/4 tsp xanthan gum
Chop the red chilli, ginger and garlic. Add them to a pan together with the apple cider vinegar, coconut aminos and powdered sweetener.
Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and let the mix bubble away on a low heat for 5 minutes.
Mix the hot water with the xanthan gum. Blend well so there are no lumps. Add to the pan and cook for another 5 minutes or until the desired consistency is reached.
Be aware that the sauce will thicken further while it cools.
Fill into a clean glass jar and let cool.
I calculated 1 portion = 2 tbsp of sauce. I think this is a fairly generous calculation – you could probably use this as a dip for up to 8 people.
This recipe made 170g of sauce, which fit into a 150 ml glass jar.
