Did you know just one tablespoon of soy sauce typically contains a whopping 1,000 milligrams of sodium?
That’s about half of the recommended limit for sodium intake in an entire day. Consider soy sauce a high-sodium food.
Low Sodium Soy Sauce Substitute Recipe
(This recipe doesn’t taste exactly like the real thing but it is pretty good.)
2 Tablespoons No or Low Sodium beef broth or stock* (Whole Foods regular is lower than most low sodium brands)
1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons molasses
1 teaspoon sesame oil
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/4 cup boiling water
If needed, at the end, add Table Tasty salt substitute, to taste
Combine all of the ingredients and let set for about an hour for the flavors to mingle. Use sauce as is, or for a thicker sauce, let simmer to reduce sauce to about 3 Tablespoons (about half).
*Whole Foods regular broth is lower than most low sodium brands.
