I'm doing the SCD and can't use soy sauce, but I'd still like to make stir frys. Anyone have a good recipe that doesn't include soy sauce?

I'd use peanut oil, rice vinegar, fresh ginger, and sweet and sour sauce.

Hi my daughter is allergic to soy, we live in Japan, do A LOT of stir fries.
I use different things, ginger, sesame seed oil, fish sauce ( the Thai stuff ) some times a bit of balsamatic vinegar, salt, lemon juice... a bit of water if things are sticking. I don`t know if this is helpful. Just ignore the bit about soy sauce in the recipe or just sort of expand your idea of what stir fry should taste like. I do a nice one with Cajun spices, or the balsmatic vinegar and a bit of honey and salt and pepper.
Good luck with the SCD.

mix peanut butter (or any nut/seed butter) with some fresh minced ginger, minced garlic, a bit of honey, some apple cider or rice vinegar, and salt. It's pretty good, and kids usually like it.

I actually use concentrated beef bone broth to replace ss, it adds nutrients and richness w/o the soy!

We like ours a bit spicy (so does DS) so we would use some kimchee base in the stir fry, I really like it. We just use a jar of the Momoya Kimchee base from the grocery store - it has garlic, salt, chili, sugar, ginger & vinegar in it.

Then again, we also eat a lot of kimchee.

What about putting curry spices in with the veggies?
If you google "nasi goreng" or "mei goreng", the recipes often include soy sauce, but it is a small amount, and I think you could omit it.
You could use a marinade... as long as the cooking style involves stirring and frying... it is stir fry. What about using a citrus marinade with orange juice and ginger in it-- You could call it braised ginger orange whatever... Now, I must experiment.
