Wonderful Recipes With Bragg Liquid Aminos From Ellen Wood

Filed under: Bragg Health Recipes,Patricia Bragg — Tags: , , — admin @ 1:15 PM

Ellen Wood has written a fantastic blog giving her honest opinion about Bragg Liquid Aminos.

It’s Not Just Healthy – It Tastes Fantastic!

I think I’m addicted to it. I use it on everything (almost) and I buy it by the quart. I’m referring to Bragg Liquid Aminos. It’s incredibly yummy and GOOD for you – very good for you. Best of all, it helps you grow younger.

Just recently I started reading Bragg Healthy Lifestyle, 33rd Edition: Vital Living to 120! by Patricia Bragg, N.D., Ph.D., and Paul C. Bragg, ND, Ph.D. Paul Bragg is considered the father of the health food movement in America; opened the first health food store; and originated Radio Health Programs in the 1920s. Patricia Bragg has followed in her father’s footsteps and continues the crusade for healthy living.

Amino acids are critically important to life and health – crucial for growth, maintenance and repair of the human body as they’re involved in the formation of muscle and tissue proteins, skin, hair, nails and enzymes. If you want to know about the technical aspects of Amino Acids and what they do for your body, go to or Google “amino acids” and read to your heart’s content. My purpose in writing about Bragg Liquid Aminos is to share with you ways that I use it in preparing a couple of my delicious, nutritious meals.

Salad Dressing
When mixing oil and vinegar, add flavor and health benefits with a splash of Bragg Liquid Aminos and (if you’re not planning on kissing someone new) put some chopped up garlic in it. YUM! It was almost 25 years ago when my second husband, Jacques Duvoisin, became famous in our town for his salad dressing. Guests would practically beg him for his secret but he wouldn’t tell. Then one year when we went to a Christmas dinner party at the home of some friends, Jacques brought each couple a gift he wrapped himself: a small bottle of Bragg Liquid Aminos – the secret ingredient in his salad dressing.

Breakfast Scrambed Egg, Quinoa and Veggies
I eat a variation of this most mornings. Soak quinoa overnight (enough for a few days), then next morning rinse and drain. Be sure to drain in a strainer with SMALL holes – I lost most of it the first time by using a spaghetti colander. Then put fresh water in – about 1 ½ cups water to 1 cup of quinoa – and cook until water is absorbed, about 8 to 10 minutes. (You need less than 2 to 1 water to grain when it’s been soaked.)

Cut up some veggies – broccoli and asparagus are my favorites – and braise them in a frying pan in coconut oil. (Sure, olive oil is okay but coconut oil is better.) Add the quinoa, then mix up a raw egg or two with a fork and pour the mixture on top, grind in some pepper and moosh it all around. Then add some Bragg. (Why am I the only one who doesn’t call it Braggs?) It has a salty taste so don’t add extra salt – and if you’re on a salt-restricted diet, be aware that ½ tsp of Bragg has 160 mg of sodium. But it also has all those good liquid amino acids.

Before I even start making my breakfast, I put the kettle of water on for my morning drink:
Bragg Raw Apple Cider Vinegar and Stevia: When the kettle makes a shooshing noise like it’s almost ready to boil, turn it off and pour it into a quart thermos. Then shake the bottle of Apple Cider Vinegar to mix the “mother” that settles at the bottom and pour about 2 TBSs into the thermos. Next, add 2 drops of Stevia, the natural sweetener that has a negligible effect on blood glucose. Or you can add honey if you prefer. I drink this throughout the morning.

There are many more tasty ways to use Bragg Liquid Aminos and in so doing, make your meals a bit healthier. If you come up with something yummy, I’d love to hear from you. There’s nothing quite as satisfying as discovering new ways to add a bit of splash to a healthy diet.

Joy and Blessings!

  1. When I add Braggs Liquid Aminos to my home-made Chinese Fried Rice, it tastes just like the one in Chinese Restaurants and it’s even better than take-out!

  4. That’s wonderful Vicki, I recommend replacing dairy cheese with alternative cheese products for a more healthy, but still delicious meal. Blessings of Health, Peace and Love. Patricia.

  5. We made a fabulous recipe for Asian Tahini Noodles which features Bragg Liquid Aminos as a key ingredient. Everyone who tried the recipe loved it! It’s become a staple in my pantry.

  7. Hi! How much Bragg do you use on meat or veggies? And do you put it on it before or after you cook it? I want to buy it but I don’t want to misuse it! And you’re also saying you use the apple vinegar as a tea?

    Comment by Rebecka — July 18, 2012 @ 1:57 PM

  8. Hi Rebecka, for veggies you can use Bragg Liquid Aminos to taste, unless the recipe calls for a specific amount. I I don’t eat meat and don’t recommend it to others. Some people enjoy their Apple Cider Vinegar Tonic heated. I recommend mixing 1-2 tsps Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar with 8 oz of water add honey if you’d like. You may try it hot if you desire. If you have health concerns before adding anything new to your diet I recommend consulting a medical professional. Blessings of Health, Peace and Love. Patricia.

  9. I have used Bragg Aminos for years, but I always remember that you are not supposed to cook with them, as that will kill the aminos. So I always add after cooking. Seems everybody is cooking with it now. Did something change?

    Comment by Susan Graling — March 4, 2013 @ 9:54 AM

  10. Hi Susan,
    Using Bragg Liquid Aminos as a spray after cooking or during cooking are both options recommended in my Vegetarian Health Recipe Book. If you have health concerns about using our Liquid Aminos to cook with, since everyone’s body is different you should consult a medical professional with your questions. Blessings of Health, Peace and Happiness! Patricia.

  11. I add Bragg’s to vegetables broth when make soups (I.e. onion, lentil, mushroom -barley). It adds richness and flavor.

  12. Hi,
    Love your aminos, but I’m concerned about the plastic spray bottle I but buy the product in. Comments?

    Comment by Dinorah — May 18, 2014 @ 7:46 AM

  13. Hi Dinorah!

    Our plastic is a safer variety, made of materials which are BPA-free. We also sell Liquid Aminos in a 10 ounce, glass bottle – visit to see more details!

  14. I love Bragg, BUT I absolutely HATE that they sell their amino acids in plastic. I won’t buy it anymore. and none of my local stores sell the 10 oz in glass like the company claims to sell everywhere! Very disappointed in them.

    Comment by pauline — December 4, 2014 @ 10:53 PM

  15. we now sell it in glass bottles. And we use BPA free plastic as well.

    Comment by admin — December 7, 2015 @ 1:25 PM

  16. There’s more than just BPA that is toxic about plastic!

    Comment by pauline — December 4, 2014 @ 10:57 PM

  17. Imagine my delight at seeing Bragg’s Animo liquid being sold in bulk at a local(ish) store!! I can bring my own container (I’m a big fan of pre-cycling!!!!). Hubby and I are two happy campers!!

  18. If Bragg’s Aminos are a substitute for soy sauce, why are they made from soy? I thought the whole purpose of avoiding soy sauce was the soy so I’m confused.

    Comment by Deb H — July 20, 2016 @ 1:31 PM

  19. The reasons Bragg’s Aminos is a good substitute for soy sauce is because they have essential Amino acids and less sodium.

  20. Hi! I drink Apple Cider Vinegar with the rcommended amount and despite my having an acid reflux, it works and does not bother my sensitive tummy. I recently bought Liquid Aminos and wondering if you could give me some recipes with it. It’s not salty and tastes great! Thanks.

  21. Get a copy of Bragg book “Vegetarian Health Recipes” at

  22. I use Bragg apple cider vinegar regularly and see in this feed that you claim that your bottles are BPA free. Why doesn’t it state this on the bottle like other products do?

    Comment by Sandra S — November 10, 2016 @ 9:07 AM

  23. Good Afternoon,

    Just bought my first bottle. Is it better to refrigerate after opening or store in cupboard.

    Have a good afternoon,

  24. You don’t need to refrigerate the apple cider vinegar. However, for the best flavor and to preserve the quality of the vinegar, it’s best if you keep the opened bottle tightly capped and in a cool, dry, dark place, like the pantry or your cellar

  27. Just bought the liquid aminos. Can I just put them in a liquid of some sort and drink? Thanks

    Comment by Laurel Miller — May 5, 2017 @ 3:20 PM

  28. Sure

    Comment by admin — May 10, 2017 @ 10:17 AM

  29. I am really bummed. I was told the amino acids were a great sub for soy, because I am allergic to soy. Now I see that they have soy in them!

  30. Try Bragg Coconut Aminos. Blessings!

  31. I was told by my practitioner to eat pink sea salt every day but when I eat it I feel bad the next day my kidneys hurt I just feel ruff. Is sea salt good for you are should I avoid it?

    Comment by Rick Smith — January 18, 2018 @ 7:57 AM

  32. As far as salt goes Pink Himalayan sea salt is one of the healthier options (as appose to table salt) but you should try your best to stay away from too much salt. The more salt you eat, the higher your blood pressure, the higher your blood pressure, the greater the strain on your heart, arteries, kidneys and brain.
