A Glorious One-Pot Meals reader asks: “I have two sensitivities – soy and gluten, so two questions.
1. Is it possible to substitute rice or quinoa pasta for wheat pasta? Rice pasta doesn’t seem to hold up as well normally, so I wasn’t sure it would turn to mush in the pot.
2. Is there a substitute for soy sauce in a recipe?
Additionally, I have had your book for only a month and I love it for ease of use, successful outcome of the recipe, and healthy ingredients. I am an advocate and I am telling everyone about your book!”

Thanks for writing, Joyce! I’m thrilled to hear you’re enjoying this cooking method!
As for your question, let me start by saying that every single Glorious One-Pot Meal recipe contains 100% substitutable ingredients, so you could truly take any recipe in the book and adjust it to fit your dietary requirements.
In place of wheat pasta or wheat couscous in a recipe, you could always substitute rice, quinoa, or another gluten-free grain. I love amaranth these days! Just consult the common measurements chart in the book and swap out the ratios of dry goods-to-liquid from the recipe with the ones for your selected grain.
I’ve had great results with Tinkyada Brown Rice Fusillion the stove top, but I’m still working on the perfect ratio for al dente rice pasta in a GOPM.
We also like quinoa pasta. Sometimes I load the pot up with meat and veggies and make pasta separately on the stove top — yes, I know that makes 2 pots, but sometimes even I reach for another pot!
The best substitute for soy sauce is Bragg Liquid Aminos – All Purpose Seasoning. I recently bought a bottle at King Soopers, but you can for sure find it at Whole Foods or Vitamin Cottage. It’s good stuff and will still give you that salty flavor like soy sauce.

Enjoy to the fullest those facets of riding that really carry your interest,coach store online but maintain a stability. That balance is the key. Remember, the more you confine yourself, the sooner the downfall will begin. I don’t mean to suggest that we are all domed, I am merely attempting to bring your attention with a possibility which could arise for a few, if we as a group do not address them.
Hi. For people allergic to soy, Bragg’s amino acids is NOT an option. Per their website: Bragg Liquid Aminos is a Certified NON-GMO liquid protein concentrate, derived from healthy SOYBEANS. I found Coconut Secret Raw Coconut Aminos non-soy seasoning at Whole Foods. It’s just organic coconut sap and sea salt.
im always on a Gluten Free diet. i really hate my allergy to gluten because i love the taste of wheat bread. oh well, you just got to live with it.
i have an allergy to Gluten and most of the time i use guar gum or xanthan gum for baking. these gums are good substitute for wheat.
i have been in a gluten free diet ever since last year because i have food allergy.
I love Bragg’s. I purchased the small bottle with a spritzer and refill it from the larger bottles. My four-year-old son likes Bragg’s on his brown rice and sometimes on noodles. He has never even tried soy sauce. It’s a great product!
