    what to sautee veggies in?

    I love sauted vegetables. What stuff is good to sautee vegetables in? I have wheat free soy sauce but I know soy sauce is not primal or paleo friendly. Any ideas is greatly appreciated. THanks!

    ps - not into spicy seasonings.

    I use bacon fat any time I want to sautee anything.

    btw, soy sauce isn't all that bad, imo. It's a fermented form of soy, and most of the nasties are killed off in the fermentation process. Soy sauce does usually have gluten, but I use San-J organic gluten-free soy sauce. Not perfect, but a small price to pay for giving stir fries a great flavor.

    I like a bit of chicken broth and crushed garlic - adding a teeny bit of mustard to it (1/4 tsp or less) adds depth without making it taste 'mustardy'. I use ~1/4 - 1/3 cup of broth w/garlic in the bottom of my wok, and start off steaming the veggies for a couple minutes and then remove the lid and toss til the liquid is reduced (should only take a minute or so).

    LOL

    It's AMAZING. I sometimes drizzle bacon grease on my salad instead of EVOO or other dressings

    I use butter for anything with a European flavor, and coconut oil if I cook Asian.

    The umami taste of soy sauce could be replaced by fish sauce or shrimp paste.
