Little Soya Gluten Free Soy Sauce Review / Giveaway



gluten free soy sauce

Here at the Frugal Follies household, we love to make one-pot meals that use up veggies that have been languishing in the crisper drawer. One of my favorites is a stir-fry, combining some chopped chicken or turkey (maybe left over from making chicken soup) with celery, carrots, peppers, onions, snow peas, and whatever other vegetables we have on hand.

The sauce for the stir-fry is made with chicken broth (frozen in ice cube trays in the freezer for easy use in recipes), cornstarch, garlic, ginger, and soy sauce.  But recently my husband's doctor suggested that he cut down his sodium intake, so I was concerned that stir-fries would have to go.  And although we don't have any issues with gluten in our family, I know that readers are often looking for gluten-free recipes that are also frugal; my stir-fry recipe doesn't meet the requirements.

Unless, of course, you use Little Soya Gluten Free Soy Sauce!

Little Soya is the best-tasting, less sodium and gluten-free gourmet soy sauce in the world. Their convenient and cute packaging makes us perfect for today’s fast paced lifestyle. Moreover, Little Soya is the cleanest soy available in the market as it is non-GMO tested and contains no MSG.

They are very serious about the quality of their product, using only the highest quality ingredients. They work hard to make sure that Little Soya strictly follows the terms as written by the FDA guidelines. All batches produced are tested twice in separate labs to make sure their results are correct. At present, Little Soya is under 5PPM gluten, which is well below the FDA standard of 20ppm. And, Little Soya has 45% less sodium than the leading soy sauce brand.

I had the chance to try Little Soya soy sauce recently. When I opened the package, I found that the soy sauce is packaged in an adorable fashion - in little fish-shaped packets!


Isn't that just darling!  Plus, I like that the fish package helps you control how much soy sauce you put in your dish.  It is so easy to go overboard with a large bottle and put too much in, overpowering the other flavors in your dish.

I didn't have the time to make a full stir-fry, so I put some leftover brown rice in a bowl, added some garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes, and then drizzled the soy sauce over the rice.  I microwaved it on high for about a minute.  It's an easy way to use leftover brown rice, and makes a great side dish.

I loved the taste of the soy sauce - it wasn't salty at all, like cheaper bottled soy sauces.  It had a savory and slighgtly sweet flavor that really complemented the garlic and ginger in my rice dish.  It would be great as a dipping sauce for sushi, as well as an ingredient in all sorts of dishes.  I definitely recommend Little Soya!

Here's my favorite stir-fry recipe, made even better with Little Soya!  It's a great dish to make after Thanksgiving, when you have lots of leftover turkey on hand.


TURKEY WITH SNOW PEAS

8 ounces chicken broth
2 Little Soya Gluten Free Soy Sauce packets
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp. cornstarch
2 tbsp. canola oil
1 bunch scallions, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 carrots, sliced
1 small or 1/2 large green or red pepper, diced
1 lb. leftover turkey, chopped into 1" cubes
4 oz snow peas, strings removed

Make the cooking sauce: In a medium bowl, mix the broth, Little Soya soy sauce, garlic powder, ginger, and red pepper flakes together. Set aside.

Make the thickening liquid: In a lidded plastic bowl, put in the water and cornstarch.  Put the lid on the bowl and shake until the cornstarch is thoroughly mixed with the water.  Set aside.

In a large skillet, heat the canola oil over medium-high heat.  Stir fry the scallions for 1 minute.  Add the celery and carrots and continue to cook, stirring often, for 3-4 minutes.  Add the green or red pepper and continue to cook, stirring often, for another 2 minutes.

Add in the cooked leftover turkey and mix together.  Turn heat to high and add cooking sauce. Once the sauce comes to a boil, turn heat down to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes.

Turn heat back to high and add thickening liquid.  Continue to cook, stirring, until the sauce has thickened.  Turn heat back to medium and add snow peas.  Cook for 1 more minute or until snow peas turn bright green.  Remove from heat and serve over a bed of brown rice.

Makes 4 servings.
