3. Make Your Own!
There are a ton of recipes online that can help you to create your own version of soy sauce – ingredients generally include bone broth, blackstrap molasses and fish sauce.
Benefits include fewer preservatives, lower sodium and the health benefits found in the healthy ingredients.
One recipe that looks great from wellnessmama.com is found below:
● 2 cups beef bone broth (here’s how to make)
● 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar (or apple cider vinegar, though the taste will be different)
● 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
● 2 teaspoons molasses
● ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
● ½ teaspoon onion powder
● Sprinkle (less than ¼ tsp) of salt, pepper and ginger powders (add more salt if you like the salty flavor or soy sauce)
● 1 teaspoon red boat fish sauce (I get it here)
1. Mix all ingredients (except fish sauce) in a small pan and bring to a simmer.
2. Simmer for about 8-9 minutes or until reduced by about half.
3. Taste to make sure you have reached the desired flavor and saltiness. Add more salt if needed.
4. Remove from heat and add fish sauce.
5. Stir well and let cool.
6. Store in the fridge and use in place of soy sauce as desired.
