Recipe Notes

If you are not on the Low Fodmap diet, you don’t need to be so careful about weighing the vegetables you use, so don’t stress about it.

Use gluten-free soy sauce for a gluten-free dish.

You can also use ground chicken instead of pork if you prefer.

If you cannot find lemongrass, substitute it with 1 tablespoon of grated ginger.
