Recipe Notes

  • If you are Paleo, use coconut liquid aminos and either apple cider vinegar or leave it out completely.  (If you're on a more strict, autoimmune protocol Paleo diet, swap out the snap peas for broccoli.)
  • You can use brown sugar instead of coconut sugar and ½ tablespoon cornstarch instead of tapioca starch.
