Substitutions

Noodles

You can use ramen noodles, spaghetti noodles, rice noodles or low-carb shirataki noodles with this recipe. It truly is quite versatile and easy to make with whatever pasta you have on hand.

Coconut Aminos

If you are not sensitive to soy, then soy sauce or tamari can be used in place of coconut aminos.

Apple Cider Vinegar

You can use lemon juice or rice vinegar in place of apple cider vinegar.

Maple Syrup

Honey, agave syrup, coconut sugar or coconut nectar can be used instead of maple syrup in this recipe.

Sriracha

The sriracha adds a slight spicy kick to these noodles. If you are not fond of spicy noodles, then simply omit the sriracha.

Enjoying

  • Serve on their own for a super simple, easy and tasty meal.

  • Top with green onions or sauteed mushrooms.
  • This is a great dish to serve alongside some spring rolls for a heartier meal.
