I made this as a filler for a Ketogenic (Low Carb Menu Plan). It makes a huge batch. I just have it whenever I need a little something. You can also add fish sauce, I did not as it is salty and I used non low sodium soy sauce and chicken soup base. Make it how it suits your needs best. You can use spice powders instead of fresh garlic and onion. Play with this recipe and make it your own.
