Recipe Notes

You may add tofu cubes and/or cooked beans to this dish to make the recipe even more protein-rich. This recipe makes 3 tablespoons of sauce to coat 2 cups of cooked whole wheat noodles, but feel free to make a greater quantity of sauce if desired. Use any kind of noodles you would like, such as buckwheat noodles, rice noodles or whole-wheat pasta noodles!

 

Some children may find the minced garlic 'too spicy'. If this is the case, simply omit the minced garlic from the recipe.
