The soy sauce substitute recipe asks for 3/4 cup soy sauce, 2 tablespoons Barbados molasses, 2 tablespoons low-sodium tamarind concentrate, 1 tablespoon lime juice, 1 tablespoon malt, 1 warm chili, 1.5 nutmeg seeds, 1-inch square of lemon peel and 6 cloves. These should all be mixed together and then allowed to boil for 8-10 minutes on high. Let it sit for one day and then strain it for the finished product.

The tamari substitute recipe asks that a 1/4 cup of tamari, 6 tablespoons brown rice syrup, 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 1 teaspoon of barley malt syrup, 1 teaspoon ground ginger, 6 tablespoons water,1/8 teaspoon cayenne, 1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic and a pinch of onion powder and ground cloves be mixed together in a food processor. Once the mixture is smooth, it can be poured into a glass jar and refrigerated. It is best to let this mixture sit for a few days so that the taste can fully develop.
