  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/4 tsp onion powder

  • 1/4 tsp chili flakes

  • To the pan, add 2 tablespoons of water and liquid aminos.
  • Continue to cook until all liquid has evaporated.

  • Serve over a bed of steamed broccoli. Finish with sesame seeds and a drizzle of sesame oil.


  • Substitute cauliflower rice or sautéed snow peas and mushrooms for broccoli, if you prefer!
