  • 2 cups mixed veggies (broccoli florets, cauliflower floret, green beans, and red bell pepper)
  • 2 tbsps olive oil
  • 1 small red onion diced
  • 12 oz kelp noodles
  • 1 tbsp baking soda
  • 1 lemon freshly squeezed
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 3 tbsps brown sugar
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 3 tbsps balsamic vinegarette
  • 3 tbsps soy sauce


Making the Sauce Mixture

  • In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, balsamic vinegarette, nutmeg, black pepper, thyme, brown sugar, ground ginger, allspice, cayenne pepper, minced garlic, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.

Prepping the Kelp Noodles

  • Combine the baking soda with lime juice in a small bowl and stir in the kelp noodles. Once it softens up, drain the mixture and wash the noodles with water. Make sure to thoroughly wash the noodles to remove any excess baking soda mixture.
  • Next, add a little bit of the sauce mixture to the noodles and leave to marinate for about 20 minutes.

Cooking The Noodles

  • To a large pan on medium heat, add some olive oil, chopped red onions, and mixed veggies. Sautee the veggies until it softens.
  • Add in the rest of your sauce mixture and leave to cook until the veggies fully absorb the sauce.
  • Stir in your marinated kelp noodles and simmer for about 5 minutes on low heat. 
  • Serve and Enjoy!
