I don’t know if you’ve eaten at P.F. Changes, but these are so much better than their lettuce wraps for many reasons. This recipe uses no artificial ingredients, is vibrant in many ways – in both color and flavor -, easy to make, and super satisfying. Flavors from ginger, coconut aminos. garlic, and honey gives this dish bold flavors that you and your family will love. 

Traditional Asian dishes use soy sauce, which is loaded with ingredients I don’t even want to come close to eating (but packs on pleasing savory flavors to any dish added to). Soy sauce is essentially a combination of fermented soy beans (which is a food that is categorized as a top GMO food, therefor something to avoid altogether) and wheat. Most, however, are chemically processed to reduce the cost. 

Using organic coconut aminos you will get a wholesome food item made with real ingredients, like organic ginger, organic garlic, and organic cayenne pepper. This kind I use is non-gmo, contains no MSG, free of soy, and vegan. It’s the perfect substitute for soy sauce.
