Sichuan Stir Fry

A low-sodium stir fry.

This tangy little recipe is relatively low in sodium for Asian food. That’s because it doesn’t solely rely on soy sauce for the flavor. It only has 1 t of reduced-sodium soy sauce in it and a serving has just 145 mg. of odium. I usually pair this with a few Trader Joe’s Potstickers for a nice little lunch. I like the flavor profile, but it does have a bit of a tart taste from the vinegar. Still, it makes a yummy low-calorie lunch
