Our Test Kitchen developed this alternative to store-bought soy sauce. Its color and flavor will make you think it’s the real thing. But it's lower in sodium than both regular soy sauce and the low-sodium variety.
- 3 tablespoons beef bouillon granules
- 1-1/2 cups boiling water
- 1/4 cup plus 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon dark molasses
- Dash pepper
- In a small bowl, dissolve bouillon in boiling water. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Pour into a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Store in the refrigerator. Shake well before using. Yield: about 2 cups.

"Salt free bouillon is the way to go to lower the sodium, TanteCindy."

"Beef bouillon granules pack as much sodium as regular table salt. This is not a good reduced sodium option."
