Tips and Substitutions
- Break the spaghetti noodles in half before cooking them. This will eliminate long strands that is hard for the kids to handle.
- Swap out the spaghetti noodles for ramen noodles or lo mein noodles.
- If you want to reduce the sodium in this recipe, use Coconut Aminos in place of Soy Sauce.
- Substitute 1 shallot for the green onion.
- Add 1 teaspoon fresh minced ginger along with the garlic in step
- If you want to reduce the amount of sugar, either cut it down to 1 tablespoon or substitute a brown sugar substitute.
- Add shrimp or chicken to the noodles for a complete meal. Fry the protein first in 1 teaspoon olive oil, 1 teaspoon sesame oil, with salt, pepper (to taste), and one tablespoon of soy sauce. Add back to the noodles just prior to serving.
