  • The recipe is best when served immediately, but you can also store it in the fridge for up to 2 days.
  • If you want a thinner sauce, you can add more water or vegetable broth.
  • You can also use soy sauce instead of Bragg’s liquid aminos. Soy sauce is known for its umami flavor, so it will give the sauce a nice savory flavor.
  • You can use any type of oil for this recipe, but we suggest you use olive oil because it has a milder flavor. It also has a smokey flavor, which goes well with the other ingredients.
