Can Someone Help Me Find A Substitute For Soy Sauce?

I'm gluten and soy free so sadly tamari won't work for me either. My dh is asian so I cook a lot of asian food and I really miss that soy sauce taste. Does anyone have any ideas of either a product that's out there or something I could make that would resemble this flavor? Thanks a lot.

I have been searching for something for several years now and haven't come up with an acceptable substitute. There are a few recipes floating around using vinegar but it's just not the same - especially with sushi! I am anxiously awaiting replies too!

I have used toasted sesame oil in stir fry and other asian-type dishes. I is not quite like fermented soy, but is has a pleasing taste. It's a strong flavor so I'd recommend adding a little at a time and taste as you go.

It doesn't have a very long shelf life once opened. So I always buy small bottles.

This recipe was listed in the Harrisburg GIG newsletter:

Recipe from Connie Sarros' July '08 glutenfree newsletterette. (www.gfbooks.homestead.com)

Mock Soy Sauce

1/4 c vegan, gluten-free, soy free broth

1/2 tsp molasses

1/4 tsp balsamic vinegar

1/8 tsp salt (sea salt if you have it on hand)

1/2 tsp sesame oil

Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

I do love sesame oil, but it doesn't quite have that salty taste I'm craving with my asian food. I'm not sure if I've ever tried the toasted kind so I will look for that.

I don't think the La Choy will work for me becasue of the soy protein, but thanks for the suggestion!

That recipe for the mock soy sauce sounds great. I'm going to give that a go. Thanks for posting that!

I'm in China, and my housekeeper just uses salt. Another idea is Thai fish sauce. I miss it too but the garlic, ginger, vinegar, salt, sesame oil, fish sauce, etc. all are great and make wonderful Chinese food.

There are a few dishes that my housekeeper comments would be more flavorful with soy sauce. But I find what we are doing pretty satisfying.

you might look into Lea & Perrin's Worcestershire sauce.

It is gluten free for sure, and does not list any soy ingredients. You might want to ask them if their 'natural flavorings' contain any soy to be sure.

it's salty and brown, and hopefully safe :)

if your label doesn't say it, it doesn't have it. soy is required to be listed by law and wouldn't be hidden under 'flavorings' etc.
