Chef Notes:
  • If not following a Low FODMAP diet; add two cloves in minced garlic with the ginger and red pepper flakes along with 1 cup finely chopped mushrooms, and top with sriracha
  • Be sure to carefully check ingredient labels of all items including oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, and tamari (not all tamari is gluten free)
  • I prefer oyster sauce in this recipe, however, if you are unable to find a gluten-free, Low FODMAP brand, look for hoisin sauce
