    Notes

    To make coconut-free: Omit the coconut aminos or you could also make your own coconut-free coconut aminosĀ using this recipe by Mel Joulwan. I recommend making a batch of this and freezing it in an ice cube tray, giving you approx 2 tbs of "coconut aminos/soy sauce" per ice cube to use whenever you need it!
