SZECHUAN MIRACLE NOODLES

In¬†yesterday’s post I introduced you to Shirataki Miracle Noodles.¬† The recipe in this post¬†is one that I came up with and has been a regular in my kitchen since.¬† It is so quick and tasty.¬†

I need to address the fact that the Sriracha sauce in the recipe¬†is not completely vegan.¬† There is some fish extract in the sauce (way down on the ingredient list).¬† While I eat a plant based diet and do not eat any animal flesh, I do on occasion consume sauces that have fish extracts in them.¬† I married into a Chinese family and have picked-up so many wonderful cooking tips from them.¬† They have also intriduced me to some really great marinades and sauces.¬† I feel that these sauces make up such a small percentage of my daily diet that I am personally OK with using the sauces in small amounts (i.e.this recipe only calls for 1/4 tsp. of Sriracha…of that 1/4 tsp, the fish extract is the 5th ingredient).

¬†*A reader wrote in to let me know that the Sriracha with the rooster IS vegan…that is so great to know.¬† The bottle of Sriracha in my fridge is a different brand and contains fish extract.
