I’ve had a few questions about coconut aminos – where to find it and how to use it. I really wasn’t too sure what to expect but in my opinion it is way better than regular soy sauce or even tamari sauce. The great thing about it is that its dairy free and gluten free!
I have used this recipe from eatthegains.com twice now and it is delicious. I haven’t been able to thicken it very well so next time I’ll add a little bit of arrowroot flour to it.
- 3/4 cup coconut aminos
- 3 tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1 tbsp. spicy sesame oil (I used expeller pressed sesame oil)
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 inch ginger, minced
- 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
- salt and pepper to taste
- optional: green onions, sesame seeds (I didn’t use either)
I have a mini food processor, so I put the garlic and ginger in there, gave it a few pulses and it was good to go! All you need to do is add the sauce to your veggies & meat if you’re having it and it is a super quick meal, that has a lot of flavor and is delicious.
I found my first bottle of coconut aminos from Nutters by Coconut Secret, I grabbed my second bottle by Organika at Bulk Barn. I was only able to find sesame oil at Nutters.
Let me know if you decide to try – it really is fast & delicious.
