    My system can’t handle aminos. Is this really necessary to the recipe or is there another substitute besides an aminos?

    I’m allergic to coconut and soy. What can be used in place of the coconut aminos? Braggs liquid aminos is not an option for me either.

    Hi, this recipe looks fantastic, but was wondering…..I have Type 2 Diabetes, are you in the near distant future going to include nutritional info on your recipes? Thanks, Donna

    This looks amazing and I’m definitely going to make it. Do you have any idea how long this will keep in the refrigerator?

    This recipe looks good! I don’t have coconut aminos on hand but, I do have liquids aminos by Bragg. Would something like that be ok until I can get the coconut aminos?
