Vegan Asian Dipping Sauce

This asian dipping sauce is sweet, sour, and delicious. It’s super simple, too – you probably have most, if not all, of the ingredients in your kitchen already. Hurray!

Try it out with dumplings, spring rolls, wontons, you name it! I’ve chosen dumplings, as you can see. (insert drool emoji here)

Anyways, I won’t bore you with a long story about my personal history with dumplings and their origins (mostly because I don’t have one).

Let’s just get to it!




We’re going to do things the easier way and just use garlic and ginger powder. It’s still super delicious, but definitely try it out with fresh minced garlic and grated ginger if you have them!

I’ve given the measurements for one dish of sauce, but you could always double or triple the recipe and save the leftovers in the fridge for later.



  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp agave
  • 1/4 tsp sesame oil
  • a dash of garlic powder (or preferably 1 small clove of fresh minced garlic)
  • a dash of ginger powder (or a bit of fresh grated ginger)
  • 1/4 tsp sesame seeds
  • chopped green onion


  • In a small bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients. (Very daunting and complex, I know)
  • Top with the chopped green onions.
  • Get to dippin’ and enjoy!


If you’d like to make this a spicy vegan asian dipping sauce, go ahead and stir in a pinch or red pepper flakes or a squirt of sriracha!
