What is Soy Sauce?

Soy Sauce

Soy Sauce is a traditional Chinese ingredient, but used universally to add a deeply savory flavor to dishes. You can use it sparingly to enhance a savory flavor, i.e. if you’re trying to replicate a “meaty” flavor in a vegan ragu or stew, or to add a unique Asian flavor.

This essential condiment is over 2000 years, and is made from fermented soy beans, wheat, salt and a fermenting ingredient. If you are gluten-intolerant, you can use tamari instead of soy sauce.

Depending on what type of soy sauce you use, dark or light, you need may need to adjust how much you use.
