There isn’t much in life that can’t be improved with the addition of a little bit (or a lot) of sauce. Problem is, sauces can often be heavily laden with sugar which isn’t great if you’re trying to watch your intake of the sweet white stuff, following a paleo diet or have other sugar-related concerns.
Women’s Weekly Food have partnered with the experts in responsibly sweet recipes, Lakanto, to bring you 10 of the best. Bring your meals to life with these…
