This Gluten Free Soy Free “Soy Sauce” will add extra flavor to any stir fry and has that missing Asian flavor without the use of soy.
If you have an allergy to soy, I have a gift for you! Two actually. One is my easy version of a Soy-Free soy sauce and the other is the passing on a there is a commercially made a soy-free sauce. Today is a BIG win for food allergies. 😀
I’ve been really missing Asian food lately and soy sauce. There are plenty of gluten free soy sauces out there, but it’s almost impossible to find a soy-less or soy free sauce that really tastes like the real thing. I’ve finally taken the time to measure all the ingredients I have been using before we found the coconut-aminos. This easy soy sauce comes together so quickly I never really measured the ingredients but merely mixed based on the memory of the taste of soy.
If you follow me on Facebook, you probably saw the Coconut Amino- Soy Free soy sauce I found. I was super excited to get some really great feedback from those of you who’ve tried it and loved it. It’s fermented using coconut sap instead of soy. (If you have a coconut allergy (like we did) then this product wouldn’t be an option for you.)
So many people seemed very happy with the product and flavor. But the one thing many other people mentioned was the cost and inability to find it. By chance, I found the bottle on a shelf at my local grocery store. It was a difficult decision to buy due to the sheer cost of $13.99 for a 14 oz bottle.
I have a hard time spending that much on something my family may or may not like or be allergic to. In the end, I decided to try it and I’m glad I did since it was really good! It’s definitely not as salty or thick as a regular soy based sauce and doesn’t have that strange aftertaste bite like the gluten free soy sauces. We will continued to use it since it’s already
Since we’ve been excited to find an off the shelf sauce, we’ve gone through another bottle… Love it, but not the price. (All of the other allergy foods are pricey too which really adds up each month).
So here’s my super easy (and relatively cheap) version of soy less soy sauce.
