Soy Sauce Substitute

We avoid soy at our house as much as possible for health and allergy issues. This replacement soy sauce can be used as a marinade, or a dipping sauce, or cooked into the recipe.


This recipe makes one cup of soy sauce substitute. Use equal measurement in the recipe the same as you would for soy sauce.

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 1 Cup



  1. Place 12 Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce into a mixing bowl.
  2. Add 4 tablespoons of lukewarm water to the bowl.
  3. Mix with a wire whisk.
  4. Use in equal measurement as you would regular Soy Sauce.

Another alternative which is good and healthy is Bragg's Amino Acid. Taste just like soy in recipes, and easy to find in health food stores.

Unfortunately, this tastes nothing like soy sauce. It lacks the umami-richness soy is famous for (umami is the 5th basic taste, along with salty, sweet, sour and bitter). A common substitute for soy sauce is Maggi seasoning, which is available in most supermarkets. It's a staple in many European kitchens, and often used like soy sauce. BEWARE, however, that different countries have different formulations, and some versions hydrolyze soy protein while others hydrolyze wheat. If you're allergic to soy, make sure to get the wheat version, he original German formulation.
