Whatcha gonna need….

-2 cloves of garlic

– 2 handfuls of baby carrots cut in half lengthwise

– 8 leaves of nappa cabbage washed and diced . ( btw , wash everything… Obviously)

– egg free ‘ vegetarian’ chow mein noodles ( sounds specific , but lots of store near me carry them : ) … But use whatever’s clever for you! Wheat free? Avoiding carbs’? Try carrot noodles or zucchini noodles)

– 1/3 cup of tofu – Why tofu? Why not? … Everything in moderation and it certainly does not ‘make’ the dish… So leave it out if thee likes.

 

Sautée the pineapple in a frying pan coated with coconut oil . aadd in chopped garlic and fresh thyme. Add chopped mushrooms , tofu( or cashews? ) and 1/3 cup of water reduce the heat and cover for 2 minutes. toss in carrotsand cabbage . Prepare noodles  in a separate pot, with a pinch of seasalt.
