Allergen Swap

Remission Remix

  • Use Brown Rice or Quinoa

    Use brown rice or quinoa instead of the white rice to increase the fiber, whole grain, and nutritional value of the dish.

  • Use Minced Garlic

    Use minced garlic instead of garlic powder in the peanut sauce for a more robust garlic flavor and additional nutrients.

  • Use Broccoli

    Try steamed broccoli instead of green beans for alternative high-fiber vegetable option.
