I like this soy sauce, it’s cheap and it’s got high amount of soy beans (29%).





     You can relish your portion with soy sauce. I reccomend those naturally fermented, with high amount of soy beans and without sugar.

     The outcome: vegan barley

     Very tasty, spicy and mouthwatering .
The groats don’t have any significant flavour, however they make the meal softer.

     I rate this combination as 9,5 of 10. 😀
