    This was awesome. I added some sweet potato and served it over some spaghetti squash. That added a little bit more substance. Awesome!

    Is there anything I can substitute for the coconut aminos? Even a non-paleo replacement? I don’t know if I’ll be able to find it here (Regina,SK).

    This may be my most favoritest recipe ever in my life. Seriously. The sauce is to die for, and I save the excess to use with everything. Thank you so much for making my life better.
