This dipping sauce is truly delicious. Aside from pairing it with sushi, it can also be used as a dressing, a dipping sauce for veggies, and anything else you like. It’s very thick and creamy, and pretty quick to make. It’s also a great low sodium alternative to soy sauce served traditionally with sushi. Enjoy!


  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 small piece of ginger
  • 1 small piece of turmeric root, or 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon good quality salt
  • 1 small piece of jalapeno pepper (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 2 large roma tomatoes
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Meat of 2 coconuts (that’s about 2 cups of coconut meat)
  • 2 Medjool dates


  1. Use the coconut buddy to scoop out the meat from your coconuts, making sure to remove any hard woody bits. The brown, soft stuff is fine to eat.
  2. Place all the ingredients in the blender, and blend on high speed until completely smooth. Use your tamper, rather than adding water to blend completely, resulting in a thick and creamy sauce.
