I love soy sauce. It has to be good soy sauce.
I was offered the opportunity to sample some San-J Organic Tamari Sauces through Moms Meet, I applied. The online party with Moms Meet and San-J got me excited to taste their products.
All about San-J Organic Tamari Gluten Free Sauces
- Made with 100% soy and no wheat. Regular soy sauce contains 40-60% wheat. This is great news for those of us who must eat gluten free!
- San-J sauces are fermented for up to six months using Japanese brewing methods.
- Their sauces contain no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives so my boys are happy they can eat the sauces!
- A 10-ounce bottle typically retails for around $4.45.
- The higher concentration of soy protein gives these sauces a milder, richer, and more complex taste.
Which sauce to choose and for what meal?
For this product review, I chose to taste the San-J Gluten Free Orange Sauce for Asian Glaze and Stir Fry. The one dish mentioned on the San-J site for this particular sauce is Orange Chicken. I knew this was what I wanted to make!
A character on a show we were watching a couple days ago began eating egg rolls. I remembered I had purchased a big box of gluten free egg rolls. For dinner that night, we had the gluten free egg rolls and used the Orange Sauce for dipping. My husband and I liked the combination of the egg rolls with the sauce. My boys thought the sauce was a little strong. This sauce tastes like a flavorful orange sauce to me.
I used more of the sauce for a second meal where the sauce might not be as strong. I made Shanghai Chicken (found in my book, The Gluten-Free Way: My Way). The recipe calls for soy sauce and water, I figured the water would help reduce the intensity of the sauce for my boys. The addition of sugar would help sweeten it as well.
I was not certain how the orange sauce would taste in place of soy sauce. It turned out delicious.
All six of us ate it and it was difficult to not eat the rest! I plan on having the leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
