Mock Soy Sauce Recipe

I remember years ago when I was first told to avoid fermented products that some mothers in a food allergy group mentioned adding salt to molasses to make a mock soy sauce. I can’t do the vinegar and may have to substitute something for it. I am going to experiment. Thank you for sharing. – For those of you looking for a fermented free soy sauce this might work if you could substitute the vinegar. My usual choice is lemon juice and may try but use less than what is called for to avoid a lemony taste.


Bingo! This is my answer to substituting soy sauce in recipes. It’s a mock soy sauce recipe using primarily bouillon. I use The Organic Gourmet’s low sodium vegetable bouillon cubes but any bouillon should work.
