Choose Seasonal Veggies

The best part about this recipe is its versatility. If you don’t enjoy certain vegetables, or you can’t find any in the supermarket, you can easily mix it up. If you enjoy more, mushrooms put more. Don’t like carrots? Skip out on them. Feel like there isn’t enough veggies? Add more! Make this recipe your own and experiment!

Gluten-Free Noodles

If you have celiac or just prefer non-gluten foods, you can substitute the noodles to fit your requirements and taste. Try out some brown rice pasta, or shirataki noodles. There are plenty of versions on the market today, and they are easily available at most supermarkets. You can even try this recipe with veggie noodles such as zoodles (zucchini noodles).

Storage

If you want to meal prep, or somehow there are leftovers from this amazing dish, you will need to know how to properly store it. Just like many foods, these noodles will do more than fine in an airtight container that is kept in the fridge. They can stay good for up to a couple of days when stored like that.

Soy Sauce

You can use any type of soy sauce for this recipe. However, if you’re trying to cut down on your salt intake, go for a dark soy sauce. Lighter version tend to saltier and thinner than dark ones. Plus darker soy sauce has more antioxidants than any other. It’s sweeter and usually thicker.

Pick your own vegetables
