Ok guys, went into this recipe with minimal expectations and came out with a home run.
Flavourful, nutritious, and totally fulfilling…especially from a noodleless, noodle dish, you dig.
Now granted you can add and subtract what you like, and maybe this means adding rice noodles…amazing. But as is, we got a winner winner.
I used one of my favourite local brands, Fatso, but if you cant be as lucky as us to have this delicious hybrid nut butter, just use whatever nut butter or combination of, that you might like.
This is whole food plant based at its most exotic.
love, health and heat…Kate
