Here's my favorite cranberry sauce recipe! It's vegan, gluten-free, refined sugar free, and whoa, it's paleo-friendly too!

Ingredients

  • 1 12 oz bag of frozen cranberries
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup orange zest
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon tapioca flour or arrowroot flour or corn starch this is to thicken the sauce since we are using frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • In a large skillet over medium heat, add the orange juice and coconut sugar.
  • Whisk together so there are no clumps.
  • Add the vanilla extract, followed by the cranberries, and then the tapioca/arrowroot/corn starch, and orange zest.
  • Mix everything together well.
  • Once the mixture comes to a soft boil, cover, turn the heat to low, and cook for 35 minutes, or until the sauce gets nice and thick.
  • I like to remove the cover every few minutes and give everything a nice stir.
  • Garnish with extra orange zest.
