Very good! We will make it again!! We substitute coconut amino acid for a healthier option to soy sauce- this would be great with cauliflower rice too!

This came out great and was super easy to make. It has a nice spice and a lot of well balanced flavor. I will definitely be making this again.

Delicious. I used hot pepper flakes and sliced orange peel. At least double the sauce. I cooked veggies separately.
