This sauce. Absolutely DELICIOUS!! I have been looking for something sweet and tangy that was vegan and not loaded with sugar. THANK YOU! Brb, putting this on everything… (The broccoli was also husband approved, which is rare).

Jill, I wonder what alternative I might use to the oats in the sauce? I am grain (and gluten) free. Would something like say cooked drained butter beans work as they are quite dry, or flour from chickpeas with maybe arrowroot or something? Any suggestions? Thank you

I would try the butter beans.

I made the coconut bang bang broccoli and it was absolutely delicious. I had some batter left and used it on some cauliflower also delicious. In fact I made another batch the next day and use tofu. This recipe is so delicious and easy I plan to make it often. Thanks
