Vegan Fish Sauce

We have many different dietary needs/wants in our house. T1.5D, pescetarian, and two picky teens. Because of this I am very familiar with making subtle changes to recipes to satisfy everyone’s needs.

Whether you are vegan/vegetarian or simply don’t like fish, you may pass over a terrific dish because it contains fish sauce. This sauce is a lovely substitution and offers the bold flavours a traditional fish sauce offers.

This recipe yields 1 cup of sauce but nutritional values are based on 1/4 cup.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
