Let’s see what other ingredients we need in this easy crack slaw recipe:

  • 12 oz coleslaw mix
  • 1 lb ground beef or breakfast sausage – feel free to replace the protein with ground chicken or turkey
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ginger or ground ginger
  • 2 stalks green onions
  • 3 tbsp olive oil or sesame oil

What can I use instead of soy sauce?

I used soy sauce because I was out of tamari. I make this recipe often because everyone loves it.

Soy sauce often comes with hidden sugars, wheat and other ingredients that aren’t keto-friendly. Regarding carbs soy sauce, usually has 1g carbs for a tablespoon.

If you are trying to eat clean and ditch all the nasty ingredients here are a few keto substitutes of the soy sauce:

  • Tamari: it’s made 100% of soybeans and it’s a high-quality product with an intense flavor
  • Coconut aminos: the price is a little bit higher, but if you want to eat a soy-free diet (non-GMO) I recommend using coconut aminos.
