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.

    • Toblerone
      I don't eat chocolate often, but I have never had a gluten reaction to Toblerone. I trust it to be gluten-free.
    • So I've been glutened....
      I am so sorry for how your feeling.  I can sympathize; over time I notice I couldn't have any type of gluten free products.  I read that since you don't have villi in your small intestines you have no defenses, meaning even the tiniest bit of exposure causes a flare up.  I even have to be careful when I purchase products by reading the labels to ensure it says manufactured by a nut, soy, milk and wheat free facility.  Be very careful, unfortunately
    • Symptoms despite strict gluten-free -- new here
      I have been reading a lot about leak gut syndrome which is new to the medical community in the sense that they don't know how to manage it.  If (you are female) make sure to do a yearly pap and uterine check to ensure there is no issues there.  If you are not a female then definitely confirm with an endoscopy if your small intestines are still damaged.  I am looking into doing the leaky gut diet to see if it will help, the book I am reading is "Eat Dirt" by Dr Josh Axe.  Especially since I notice anytime I am exposed to gluten by accident my symptoms are worse each and every time.  I know get severe back and rib cage pain, with bloating, gurgling and diarrhea with severe nausea.  I am willing to try anything and I am now reading this book and applying the diet to see if I can heal my intestinal lining.
    • Help
      Ok so I had my colonoscopy & endoscopy last Thursday. Don't get results until July 13th as GI is on vacation. I've had bad pain in my lower left abdomen that wraps around to my lower back as well for the past 4 days..even hurts to touch lightly. Went back to the ER & they did an ultrasound & CT scan. The Doctor said that I have "prominent" lymph nodes in the area that is painful as well as thickening & inflammation of my Sigmond colon? Um ok what is that all about? Kind of freaking out over the whole swollen lymph nodes thing. Has anyone ever dealt with this before? 😒

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
