any substitute for soy sauce in dipping or cooking due to allergies?

  1. What are you allergic to? Tamari might work as its gluten free and kosher, I believe. I'm not Jewish, though, so don't take my word on it being kosher.

      There are definitely kosher tamaris out there. But yes, what allergy is this? Soy? Wheat?

    2. You can also try the Passover versions of soy/teriyaki.

        I'd prefer going without to using those, but I suppose YMMV.

          My experience with Passover soy sauce is that it is not worth the jar it comes in. It was one of the most vile tasting things I've ever ingested.

          If someone can come up with a great substitute for soy, please let me know. I love how it tastes, but rarely use it because a family member is intolerant of all things soy (so we don't use soybean oil, either. Yes, we read every ingredient panel on everything we buy. You'd be amazed what has soy in it!).

      2. Not sure if you're allergic to soy or wheat (or both), but coconut aminos are safe either way, and Star-K certified.

            You can. Fairway, Whole Foods, Vitamin Shoppe, and pretty much all the independent health food stores carry it.

        1. THX I think that Tamari sauce is soy based. Using KP for soy sub sounds great

          1. This kosher soy-free chick pea miso sounds interesting (not for Pesach, though). It could be diluted and used in place of soy sauce.
            Apparently the KP "soy" sauce is pretty awful.

              Yeah it's pretty awful. Salty brown water. But hey people like it!
