I can't have soy at the moment, but miss the flavor of gluten-free soy sauce for stir fry.

I added a couple of shredded anchovies today, which was quite good, but wondered if anyone has a favorite alternative?
Thanks :)

- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

Thanks love2 :) I reckon I can do that if I can get my head round the balsamic?

So IH, do you reckon 2 tsp molasses is pushing it for whole 30?

I love the whole substitution thing, it cracks me up reading all the different variants we end up using

I read somewhere that cheaper balsamic may not be gluten-free, but I can't find where. Our labeling is slightly different in the UK and I sometimes get confused.

I am very happy to be told I can crack into the balsamic from a gluten-free point of view. I need to check if it is also whole30 compliant.

This all gets complicated some days :)

Ah...I see. I have not yet seen any vinegars that contain gluten other than malt, of course. And I had also forgotten about the whole30 thinger.

You're right. It CAN be complicated. :blink:

...and if you can only find the cheapie stuff, just reduce it by half in pan and add a touch of brown sugar. Voila - better balsamic. This recipe would not be the place to use 50-year-old gold label aceto balsamico tradizionale de Modena! :lol:

Balsamic is okay, gluten free. (I have never seen a vinegar except malt vinegar that was a danger to us) but I am sure someone on here will argue loudly with me about that. :)

Molasses is pure cane sugar, but if you want to use it, I won't tell a living soul. -_-

cmw, an alternative which I think is much better and I add to stir frys and bolognese sauce is called Hendersons relish. The company is uk based tho but it is soy and gluten free and tastes
delicious! :) It actually makes me look like I can cook when I use it :)

It looks like soy sauce and has the same consistency.

I take some salt, pepper, and brown sugar and add some homemade beef stalk to it. I found that that is kinda similar. Then i simmer it (actually, this is the base to my beef soup most of the time :lol: ). I've done it in smaller batches with some success. I have no mesurments, just what looks right.
