Veggie & Vegan Oyster Sauce

Given that oyster sauce contains - well, yes, oysters - we thought we'd offer this easy little recipe. Use hot on stir-fries or cool as a dipping sauce.

Lee Kum Kee makes a vegan equivalent of oyster sauce called 'Vegetarian Stir Fry Sauce'. It's available from Oriental stores and some supermarkets.  

Ingredients: 

  • 1 mushroom stock cube (use ordinary vegetable if you can't get it)
  • 120ml/4fl oz boiling water
  • 2 tbsp black or brown bean sauce OR brown rice miso (also known as Genmai)
  • 1 tbsp syrup: agave, date or maple
  • 1 heaped tsp arrowroot or cornflour dissolved in 1 tbsp cold water
  • Optional: 1 tsp crumbled nori* or nori sprinkles (sold in packs)

Method: 

1. Dissolve stock cube in hot water. Mix the stock with brown/black bean sauce and syrup and heat to boiling point.  

2. Add the dissolved cornflour and stir until thickened. Add nori flakes if using and stir in well.
