Equipment

  • Measuring Spoons and Cups

  • Small Spatula

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon Cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons Warm Water
  • 1 lb Strawberries hulled, and sliced in half
  • 1/2 medium Lemon juice and zest
  • 1/4 cup Sugar

Instructions

  • In a small bowl whisk the cornstarch and warm water together until smooth and cornstarch has completely dissolved.
  • Place the cornstarch mixture, strawberries, lemon juice and zest, and sugar into a small saucepan over medium heat. Using a spatula or wooden spoon stir the ingredients as it cooks for 1 to 3 minutes. Gently mash some of the strawberries using the back of the spoon.

Notes

To Serve: The vegan strawberry sauce can be served warm or chilled. It can also be reheated in the microwave or on the stovetop.
Strawberries: The strawberries can be fresh or frozen. If using frozen strawberries don't thaw them. You'll need a 1-pound carton or 3 to 4 cups of frozen strawberries.
To Freeze: Allow the sauce to cool completely and then transfer it to a freezer-safe container. It can be stored in the freezer for 3 to 6 months. Thaw the sauce on the counter or in the refrigerator.
For a Smoother Sauce: If you'd like a smoother sauce then you can place it in a blender or use an immersion blender to fully blend the ingredients.
