Make your favorite Asian recipes with this Soy Sauce Substitute. For just $1, you can make this easy soy sauce alternative with ingredients in your pantry.
I love to cook Chinese food, but one thing is missing from my pantry: regular soy sauce. I’ve long given up on convention soy sauce because my family is gluten free and soy free, and I now know why soy is bad for my health.
But that doesn’t mean I don’t miss it. Thankfully, I have a soy sauce alternative called Coconut Aminos on hand. It’s both gluten free and soy free – made from coconut sap. It tastes delicious and Paleo friendly as well. In fact, my Gluten-Free Fried Rice recipe calls for Coconut Aminos.
A Store-bought Soy Sauce Substitute Can Be Pricey
There’s only one downside… it can get expensive. On Amazon, it’s about $12 for a 8 oz. bottle. At my local health food store, it’s about $6.85 for the same bottle.
That’s why I love having this Soy Sauce Substitute recipe on hand in case I need an alternative with basic ingredients I already have in my pantry. It’s really easy to make and a great way to use up leftover bone broth.
