Ingredient Notes and Health Benefits:
Asian Chicken Sausage: I bought mine from Trader Joe’s, and this sausage goes perfectly with the noodles and sauce in this recipe (pictured below). However, if you don’t have access to a TJ’s, any chicken or pork sausage will work just fine.
Udon Noodles: I love cooking with Udon Noodles! The texture is great and they are so easy to cook – they’re ready in about 3 mins once added to the skillet.
Red Bell Peppers: High in vitamin C, B6 and folate. They also add great color to this stir fry and are so sweet and yummy!
Green Cabbage: A cruciferous veggie high in vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, manganese, magnesium, potassium, antioxidants, and fiber.
Hoisin Sauce: A popular sauce in asian cuisine, hoisin sauce is a thick dark sauce with a sweet and salty flavor. It can be found in the asian food aisle of regular grocery stores.
Low Sodium Soy Sauce: If you are gluten free, you can use coconut aminos instead.
