Throw in some edamame and a few slices of tomato, and seaweed If you like a little twist… Add in some cube cut mango pieces & a few pinches of sesame seeds as a topping!Homemade Teriyaki Sauce: ¼ cup of light soy sauce 3 tablespoons brown sugar (you can also try coconut sugar/nectar, or honey… it may change the flavour a bit!) 1 clove garlic (minced) 1 Tea spoon ginger (grated) 1 Table spoon water 1 Table spoon corn-starch ½ cup water  Method:  1. Mix corn-starch and water and keep aside 2. Heat a pot *medium heat is fine 3. Add water, soy sauce, honey, garlic and ginger into pot and stir 4.
