For the vegan teriyaki sauce:
In a saucepan, combine all of the sauce ingredients. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce it to a simmer.
Simmer until the sauce has thickened considerably and reduced to approximately 3/4 cup in volume. Taste the sauce, and if you still want a more powerful flavor and syrupy texture, continue reducing it to as small as 1/2 cup in volume. Add salt if desired. Turn off the heat.
For the vegan teriyaki meatballs:
Heat the vegan meatballs according to package directions, or however you prefer to heat your homemade recipe. If they can stand up to being mixed around in sauce, add them to the pan with the teriyaki sauce, and toss to coat. Otherwise, drizzle them generously with the sauce. Serve immediately, sprinkled with sesame seeds and fresh herbs if using.
To serve as a finger food, spear each of the vegan teriyaki meatballs with a toothpick.
