Stir fry’s are a fun, colourful and quick way to get plenty of veggies into your diet; and they can be delicious! Unfortunately, we can reach for salty soy sauce to boost our stir fry’s flavour; soy sauce can be full of salt, which can put our heart health at risk.
Never fear! Finding reduced salt soy sauce at the supermarket is easy, and most people can’t taste the difference. There’s no need to skip the stir fry, but it’s a healthy idea to explore alternatives to soy sauce or to come up with ways to use less of the sauce in your cooking.
Add some flavour to your stir fry’s
As mentioned above, look out for a reduced salt soy sauce at your local supermarket and aim to use less of this sauce in your stir fry. You can give your Asian-style dish a flavour boost with salternatives, including chilli, ginger, garlic and lime.
