Asian Buffalo Sauce

Classic Asian flavors are brightened up with the addition of a whole orange—including a bit of the peel—and fresh ginger, making this a tasty twist on buffalo sauce.


  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) honey or agave nectar
  • 1 orange, peeled, halved
  • 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 inch (4 x 4 cm) cube fresh ginger root
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 2 inches (5 cm) strip of orange peel


  1. Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
  2. Select Variable 1.
  3. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.
  4. Blend for 45 seconds until smooth, using the tamper to press the ingredients into the blades.

For serving: Toss cooked wings in sauce. This is a low fat twist on traditional Buffalo wing sauce. You can also serve it with grilled ribs, chicken, or tofu.
