I'm single and don't cook asian cuisine much. So a couple times a year I use Kikkoman Stir-Fry sauce to make some stir-fry veggies, maybe with chicken, dump in a some peanut butter and serve with noodles or rice. I know sounds gross right? Its ok by me:)
In trying to get away from the over the top sodium MSG and other additives I would like to make my own sauce but don't want to have to buy a bunch of exotic ingredients. l had fish sauce in my fridge one that leaked and its never coming into my house again. plus a bottle wouldn't be half gone in about 15 years.
I have onion, garlic, seseme oil (getting kind of old, does this stuff last forever? or should I buy more?) soy sauce, red pepper flakes, rice vinegar and other standards like pepper, salt, tobassco. Willing to buy scallions, ginger....?? some other things if I can buy small amounts and don't have to drive across town.
Can this be done?
P.S. I used to use ramen noodles which I liked but then I found they were really high in calories so I switched to brown rice. Is there something equivalent to ramen I could use that is a little less bad for me?
