Others may have some options, but I just use coconut oil to fry everything in, and then I use lots of spices--whatever you like. I made a chicken stir-fry last night, actually. With chicken, you can use almost any spice--cumin, poultry seasoning, onion, garlic, even Old Bay--whatever floats your boat. I think some other people on here make soy-free sauces, but I've never tried any.

Good luck, whatever way you decide!

You can experiment with:

sesame oil, rice vinegar, plum vinegar, ginger, chile pepper, garlic, onion...

Somtimes I use Spice Hunter Ginger Stir Fry mix which contains:

garlic, sesame seed, ginger, onion, red bell pepper, celery, green chile pepper, coriander, lemon oil, orange oil, chives, Szechwan pepper, star anise, cloves, cinnamon, fennel, pepper

(sesame oil with a bit of vinegar and sea salt really does the trick though, imo)

Someone here does have a recipe for soy-free soy sauce. I think it involves beef broth.

My son and I are soy-free too.

I recently read a neat thread about using maple syrup for soy sauce, haven't tried it yet but I bet it would be good.

You cook the maple syrup until it carmelizes, so when I try it in stirfy I'll put the maple syrup in the pan first and carmelize it, then add the meat, then the frozen stirfry veggies.

Best wishes!

make sure to use plenty of aromatics, and you're fine. for instance, heat up the oil (canola, for instance), throw in some chili flakes, add onion and crushed garlic and , wait for the garlic to toast a bit, then add the meat (I'm a fan of chicken). as it cooks, add sliced carrots, and once the chicken's cooked, add some sugar snap peas. when it's all done, add a bit more chili flakes and red bell peppers. voila! tasty!

ok, He did some research, and found some Thai Fish Oil at the store, the dinner had to be postponed until tomorrow, we had thunderstorms bad and lost power for 3 hours. So Tomorrow we are going to try Thai fish oil (dosen't sound too appealing if you ask me) and chili powder ginger and onions and garlic. We will be using chicken and a frozen stir fry mix with broccoli coliflower carrots and snap peas!

If anyone has any addtional ideas I'll take them, I'm not sure how i'm going to like "Fish Sauce".

btw, chili powder is likely to get you the chili powder you use to make chili (with beans). this is NOT the same as chili flakes, which is just small flakes of dried hot chilis. *VERY* different taste, and *NOT* interchangeable.

Did you make your stir-fry SunnyDy? Did it work?

I found the recipe for soy-free soy sauce:

2 cups beef broth

2 tsp. cider vinegar

1 tsp. molassas

1/8 tsp. ground ginger

dash of pepper, onion powder and garlic powder

Combine all in saucepan, boil uncovered until reduced to 1/2 cup.

Thank you! I will print that out for him!

We did make it, it really didn't turn out as well as we hoped.

We marinaded the chicken in Thai fish sauce, rice vinegar, and chili powder.

Then he fried up an onion and some cloves of garlic in some sesame oil, he added the chicken and more fish sauce. When they were cooked, he added frozen stirfry veggies and cooked them till done (over cooked in my opinion.. lol).

We served it over white rice cooked with 1/2 chicken broth 1/2 water.

It was ok.... It seemed fishy to me, but I don't know if i would have called it fishy if i didn't know that we used fish sauce. It was dry, not alot of sauce to wetten the rice. I ate it again today for lunch and it just didn't have it... so I challenged myself with soy sauce... and I feel ok. Anyway I think it might have needed salt...It made it just taste right... I don't think soy sauce gives a whole lot of flavor, just salt mainly.

Anyway, I will try with the recipie above, see how that works. Before going soy free I was eating soy sauce almost every day, so i may have just really been over doing it not really intolerant to it. Also the idea I was sick last week may also be true. What I do know is the past 4 days of soy free has been worse than the first 4 days gluten free!

Alot of soy sauces at the store don't actually have soy in them. You might try over at whole foods to get the best selection. I was there yesterday and I saw some without soy.

Unfortunately the closet Whole Foods is 60 miles away in Baltimore. I may try to go to one someday, but until then I will try to avoid using it until I get this figured out.

When I make stir fry, I just use chicken broth, add some plum sauce and a tsp or two of A-1. It turns out pretty nice. I used to add pineapple juice too, before I found out I couldn't have it.

    • I am sorry that you are sick!   Unfortunately, all celiac testing requires you to be on gluten.  😔.   Testing is usually not over until you get an actual diagnosis, but it appears that you may very well have celiac disease.    Here is more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://theceliacmd.com/2015/06/six-reasons-to-test-for-celiac-disease-before-starting-a-gluten-free-diet-3/ in the meantime, you can eliminate dairy products temporarily.  It may provide some relief.  
    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!
