HONEY GARLIC SAUCE
- In a medium saucepan combine brown sugar, garlic, ginger, onion powder, soy sauce, honey, and 1 1/2 cups of water. Cook over medium high heat until it comes to a boil, whisking constantly.
- In a small bowl combine cornstarch and the remaining 1/2 cup of water. Whisk them together and then slowly pour the cornstarch mixture into the sauce whisking constantly.
- Continue to cook for about 10 minutes or until sauce thickens to a point where it will coat the back of a spoon.
- Remove from heat and use immediately or let cool and then store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
The amount of vegetables needed will vary depending on the size of your baking sheet. Vegetables shrink as they bake so make sure to pack your veggies onto the sheet pan (in a single layer) to make sure you have enough.
