Perfect! I substitute beef broth for water and omitted the bouillon- alot of organic bouillon still has allergens. I also used red wine vinegar instead of balsamic since that is what I had in the cupboard. It smells atrocious when cooking but works well as a soy sauce AND Worcheshire sauce substitute. Read More

This was extrememly helpful when making dinner for my mom who is not to eat soy due to medication. The bullion that I used was Herb Ox Chicken bullion which was sodium free and contained no MSG. I found a lot of bulluion out there that did actually have soy or (soy derivatives) in it. Read More

My son has a soy allergy. I use this recipe weekly and am so grateful to have found it. I have modified it to make it easier and no one has complained. I modify the serving size until the water in the ingredients matches the amount of soy sauce I need in a recipe. I skip the beef bouillon use brown sugar for molasses (b/c I never have molasses on hand) add salt (same amount as pepper) and add the ingredients directly to my recipe without heating. It works for us. Read More

This was great! We have used it several times and it is great in a stir-fry. After the first time I made a few changes: I halved the molasses and added a teaspoon or two of salt. Perfect! I haven't eaten soy sauce for about eight years because of my allergies to soy and I was soooo glad when I found this. Thanks! Read More

I will never buy soy sauce ever again. This definitely is worth trying if you want a good soy sauce that doesn't just taste like vinegar and salt. Read More

My husband and I love eating chinese food but when we discovered our infant son was soy protein intolerant we thought that he would never be able to share our love. Now we can not only share our love but we can do it in a healthier way. Read More
