Soyless Kung Pao Noodles

Type of meal: Main Meal

Normally you would use a lot of soy sauce in Kung Pao noodles, unfortunately we ran out so I thought I’d experiment with something different. The taste is a little different to your typical kung pao, but it’s pretty good in my opinion and wifey loves it, so that’s a big plus!

Bonus number two is that it is really quick and easy to throw together using pantry items and a few fresh ingredients. Some of the pantry items are uncommon, but once you have them they last for a while and then you can just throw it together anytime.

Hubby Tip
  1. It's tempting to prep things as you cook them, but you really need to prepare the sauce and vegetables before you start cooking in order to ensure everything is hot when served.
