Saucí Gin+Scal is a natural with noodles and stir-fry or sautés. The light, bright flavor of the Saucí livens up the noodles and blends well with most simple pan-sauces.

Forbidden Rice and Sauté with Saucí Gin+Scal

Saucí Gin+Scal compliments noodles perfectly. In this case I’ve used some black and brown rice noodles, but you could substitute any thin noodle you like. The fresh bright flavors of the Gin+Scal go well with any pan sauce you might mix up in the pan or you can let the Saucí shoulder the flavoring. I keep it simple here, letting the richness of the ghee do the job, but I often use a little sesame oil, coconut aminos or soy sauce, and rice vinegar for a simple pan sauce.

I’ve topped this with some microgreens from our friends at Beyond Microgreens (https://beyondmicrogreens.com/) to give it a nutritional boost.
