  1. I’m not vegan but this will not be considered vegan bc it has honey.

    • No, honey as an animal byproduct is not considered vegan. Using Agave is a popular alternative

  2. This recipe looks so yummy! The only problem is, I can’t have soy. Do you have any modification recommendations? Thanks :o)

      You can use coconut amino…it’s a great substitute for soy-free substitute soy sauce!
