Before I knew that soy wasn’t good for our family, I loved soy sauce!
It’s really awesome for marinating chickens or turkey in to create moist and flavorful meat. I also love it on rice, and when we make homemade Chinese food. It’s perfect in nearly any meat or roast recipe as well. I have even been known to use it in homemade salad dressings.
Trying to reduce soy in our diets meant that I couldn’t use soy sauce anymore. My friend came up with this recipe, and me being ME, I had to tweak it a bit and make it my own. So, here you are: homemade soy sauce substitute that is gluten, dairy free soy free!
I used an old soy sauce bottle, that I have managed to hang on to for some time now. This is far less salty than the store bought soy sauce, and it still is great for marinating whole chickens in and keeping them moist as well as mixing in homemade salad dressings, or even homemade mayo.
I love to dash this all over over easy eggs in the morning as well, for that extra bit of “kick”. And, over chicken fried rice, this just can’t be beat!
