Paleo sweet chilli sauce recipe

This Paleo sweet chilli sauce is a delicious twist on the traditional store bought favourite, and ridiculously easy to make.



  • 5 tbsp apple cider or white wine vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp raw honey or maple syrup
  • 2 tsp chopped red chillis or 1 small mild red chili, minced finely
  • 1 tsp arrowroot powder
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 tsp pink salt flakes or sea salt


Simply combine all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to the boil.

Let simmer for 2-3 minutes or until sauce starts to thicken making sure the arrowroot is well combined.

Remove from heat and allow to cool before serving.


  • You can find arrowroot flour alongside cornflour in your supermarket.
  • This may stick to the pan easily so make sure you continually stir until this is finished cooking.
  • The flavours will develop over time with this sauce. Store in the fridge for up to two weeks.
