Orange & Sesame Seed Sauce


From EatingWell:  March/April 1996, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

We love to dress up steamed asparagus or broccoli with this sauce. When tangerines are in season, squeeze them fresh for an especially interesting variation.

About 1/2 cup | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes



  1. Heat oil in a small saucepan over low heat. Add sesame seeds and stir until lightly toasted, about 20 seconds. Add shallots and stir until softened, about 1 minute. Add zest and juice, vinegar and soy sauce. Simmer until reduced to 1/2 cup, about 6 minutes. Stir in chives (or scallion greens).
