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.

    • Holy cow! You people are all angels! I have been suffering unbearably with these hot, itchy, and painful bumps on my scalp for a year now. Two doctors had no idea what it was, so I was sent to see a "dermatologist." To my utter shock, he told me I WAS DIRTY! HE TOLD ME TO WASH MY HAIR EVERY DAY with a shampoo called Nizoral, that it would take the itch away. He also prescribed a Vaseline based salve with a steroid in it. Guess what? It did nothing nor did the shampoo, and the more I washed my hair, the worse it gets. It's like torture, and I just can't stop scratching holes into my scalp. Then they scab over, then itch again. I was almost ready to shave my head, until I found this forum. I knew nothing about celiac disease, sensitivity to gluten... I knew nothing. Just so happened that my daughter found a paper talking about celiac during her visit to her GI yesterday. She brought it home for me, and demanded that I read it!  WHAM- a light come on, and I said to her... That IS what I have. I am going to my GP tomorrow to demand that I be tested for ciliac. I am rather terrified, as I am already a type 1 diabetic and have been on insulin for 52 years! I was blaming my diabetes the whole time. I have had a lower left leg amputation, and the last thing I need is to start getting this ungodly rash on my stump!!! Thank you everyone for all of the useful information you have provided in this blog. Maybe I'm not going to die after all! 😉
    • The University of Chicago recommends re-testing 3 to six months after going gluten free and then annually.  Most GIs wisely wait because although you can theoretically heal that fast, it takes TIME to master the gluten free diet.  It can take up to a year or longer for antibodies to come down.  As someone who has more than one autoimmune issue like myself (and only a DGP IgA that has ever been elevated), I think that impacts healing  and how quickly antibodies come down.   My recent endoscopy (5 years post diagnosis) revealed a healed small intestine, yet my DGP IgA was still at 80 (which was over 200 last April when I was somehow exposed to gluten).   Hang in there!  Wait six more months to get retested.  Look for other signs of healing (like anemia resolving, improve gut issues).  
    • Sounds great, one of my dreams is to open a grain free/gluten free food truck.......stone and mortar places would not do well here, but a mobile one able to cater....LOL dream I know, fundraiser has flopped and been running for a year. Hell I had the quotes up, the whole sale contracts setup, the business model and plan. I even tried to get loans, and business partners.....all flopped.
    • Just opened in Cincinnati, Oh: Ma and Pa's Gluten Free Cafe. Dedicated gluten-free restaurant. I had the pizza hoagie and onion rings last night. I forgot just how oily onion rings were. They sat in my stomach like concrete all night long but tasted great. Next time I'm getting the pizza or pulled pork with slaw and fries.  
    • Nope, had the flu and this has happened before when I ate the chili. JMG, I read the deadspin article. It's pretty funny. First, at least we're not bull testicles(Montana), and second, Skyline is the only one claiming to be gluten-free besides Hormel(sucks) and Amy's(sucks) that is Cincinnati style. There are many other local chili's but none are gluten-free. Gold Star is good but they say they're shredded cheese isn't even gluten-free. Like I said, Cincinnati style is the best. It's supposed to have roots from the Mediterranean area. Gold Star is ran by Syrian family, there is one or two others that are ran by Greeks. I kinda agree with the article when it comes to Skyline but I can walk in a store and buy it in a can. I started to thaw so meat yesterday to give it a go but am out of Cumin. No chili today
