Soy and Gluten Free Asian... Is it possible?

My hubby and I LOVE Asian cuisine. Used to cook it all the time at home and on take away nights, always Chinese. Recently my hubby has been diagnosed with a lot of allergies and has since had to give up Chinese food. We miss it terribly.

Was hoping someone could give me some ideas on what I could substitute soy sauce for. He is highly allergic to wheat and soy and medium allergic to most corn products. We currently use oyster sauce fish sauce and sesame oil but can't quite get that nice rich salty taste that soy gives.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi and welcome to Discuss Cooking

I'm sorry to hear that. That must be really disappointing.

I did a Google search and found this: http://cybelepascal.com/gluten-free-...-sauce-recipe/

You could try making this homemade hoisin sauce with the homemade "soy" sauce, or include some or all of those ingredients in your dishes: http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2...sin-sauce.html

Hope this helps.
