Low Sodium Soy Sauce Substitute

Thursday, July 09, 2015

I have always loved Chinese foods but since my low salt diet, they have been really forbidden – soy sauce too, too much sodium for me. So excited the other day when I found a substitute for the culprit – that delicious soy sauce. Honestly when I used this recipe in a favorite Chinese dish, I couldn’t tell that there was no soy sauce in it. The substitute has only 21.0 mg per tablespoon.
Try it -
2 Tbsp Sodium Free Beef Bouillon
2 tsp Red Wine Vinegar
1 tsp Molasses
1/8 tsp Ground Ginger
Dash of Black Pepper (1/8 tsp)
.25 tsp Garlic Powder
3/4 c Water

In small sauce pan , combine all ingredients and boil gently uncovered about 5 minutes or until mixture is reduced to 1/2 cup. Store in refrigerator. Stir before using.

Serving size is 1 Tbsp. Makes 8 serving

    That is a lot less sodium than soy sauce. I will pin the recipe and try it the next time I need soy sauce.
