Soy sauce recipe ok?

Postby Zozja83 » 04 Feb 2016, 17:36

Hi mamas! Do you think this recipe is appropriate for a 9 month old? I'm going to replace the honey with maple syrup. Just a little worried about the sodium in the soy sauce..... should I just find a soy sauce free recipe instead?

TIA!!!

I think it depends on what your lo eats threat of the time. We would have made that no problem (not every day, but once in a while), but we made our own salt-free bread and stuff like that so that we could use up all of C's salt "allowance" on this sort of thing. You could reduce the soy sauce and then add more to the grown ups' servings at the end, if you want.

Sorry, that was no help! Looks delicious, though!

Yum, I think I'm going to have to try this recipe!

The soy sauce should be fine especially if you use a reduced sodium version. If we have a meal that is extra salty one night I just try to balance it with non salty things the rest of the day and the next day or whatever.

Thanks for the recipe Zozja! Made this tonight (with a few modifications) and it got a thumbs-up from dh, A, and myself. L didn't like it but I didn't expect him to. He generally rejects any chicken, cooked veg, or strange sauces. :?

We used boneless skinless chicken breast because that's the only chicken dh will eat, maple syrup in place of honey, and asparagus instead of the green beans. There's a ton of sauce and enough chicken left for one more dinner, but we ate up a lot of the veg so will probably cook some more veggies and maybe some potatoes or rice to go with the extra sauce.

Haha kc, it's not that different from the original! Just a different cut of chicken, slightly different green veg, and different sweetener. That's about as close as I ever get to actually following a recipe. Usually if I cook something new dh will ask if I used a recipe for it and my reply is generally along the lines of "Well, I read through a few recipes before I started cooking...."

Lol, once I looked at the recipe I could see why, I admit I didn't actually look to see what the recipe was first. We tend to cook along those lines too. I tried following a recipe tonight and afterwards thought I should just have done it my own way. Not cos my own way is better necessarily, just that I'd have found it easier. I'm no good at making white sauce in a pan, I do it in the microwave, it just goes lumpy and I ended up using every bowl and utensil in the kroom just about trying to beat the cr*p, I mean lumps, out of it.
