As a gout sufferer, I limit my simple or “bad” carbs, but sometimes I get serious cravings for delicious bread. So when I do give in to my desires, sourdough bread is what I want.

Recently, a family member requested a sugar-free stir fry sauce. One household member has diabetes, and one has gout, so of course, I fulfilled their request.

Best of all, it tastes pretty good.
