Soy Sauce Flavor Alternative Suggestions?
0

18 posts in this topic

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 :)

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

Can you not have balsamic or do you not like it? Maybe I'm missing something... :huh:

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.

Hi Mindwarp,

 

I bought coconut aminos which looks and tastes like soy. I found it when I was looking for coconut sugar which is supposedly low glycemic (I'm pre diabetic). It tastes pretty good and is made from fermented coconut sap. Hopefully you're not allergic to coconut.

 

There's also another thing called "black bean soy sauce" but it's more difficult to find. I couldn't find it online and have to trek to an asian grocery store to find it. It's worth having a bottle if you like stir frys. They use rice flour to thicken it, so it gives your stir frys a nice glaze if you use it.

Thank you! I have had the coconut aminos recommended, must try :)

Black bean is a great idea, and widely available in the uk. I love it. I stir fry most days!

" I stir fry most days!"

 

Me too. One of the ways I get my 4 yr old son to eat veggies. I still have  load the fork myself a couple of times... with the veggies under the rice so he will eat it.
