Three Tasty Tamari Chinese New Year Recipes To Try

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Manic:  Trying to really stick to our New Year’s resolution to cook more meals from scratch using whole foods.  One of the options that my very health conscious mother told me about is to use Tamari in place of soy sauce so I was anxious to give several recipes a try with the tasty Tamari.

Managed:  Working with San-J to share their Chinese New Year recipes for potstickers, a yummy stir fry and even good fortune cookies.  Why is Tamari so good and healthy?  San-J’s premium gluten free Tamari Soy Sauce is naturally brewed from 100% soybeans for up to six months using traditional Japanese methods. For over 200 years, San-J’s Tamari is brewed with no wheat for a richer, smoother, more refined taste than regular soy sauces (that can contain 40-60% wheat). San-J’s Tamari is also Non-GMO, Vegan, Kosher and free from artificial preservatives or additives.Lamb-Potstickers1_2

Take a look and give these ideas a try….

Using San-J’s premium, gluten-free Tamari soy sauce, Gluten-Free Chef Carol Kicinski has crafted three authentic Chinese New Year dishes, with all the taste and none of the gluten for the holidays and beyond.
