Vegan Soy Sauce

Soy sauce is a distinctive flavor that can instantly add Asian inspiration to vegan dishes. It originated in China around the 2nd century BCE. Throughout time it spread into East Asia where it found popularity in cooking, as well as a condiment. Nowadays it is used the world over, enjoying a spot as one of the staples of a modern kitchen.

Here's an adaptation of Soy Sauce that is 100% vegan.

This works really well with any stir fry or vegan sushi you may make.

Vegan Soy Sauce

Vegan Soy Sauce
  • 4 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons dark molasses
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 pinch white pepper
  • 1 pinch garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 cups veggie stock
  • pinch salt to taste

The preparation couldn't be easier.

Get you favorite saucepan to medium heat, then mix together the balsamic vinegar, molasses, vegetable stock, white pepper, ginger, garlic powder and salt.

At this point you're want to bring to a gentle boil, and reduced to about 1 cup. I've found this takes about 15 minutes.

Let cool to room temperature, and transfer to a bottle for use.
