Almond Sauce

  • 1/3 cup almond butter, no sugar added*

Instructions

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium/high heat. Add in the sesame seed oil along with the minced garlic and onions. Cook until the onions are translucent, around 2-3 minutes. Transfer the red bell peppers and cooked chicken and cook together for another 3 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, add a small sauce pan over medium heat and add in all of the almond sauce ingredients. Cook on medium heat until combined. Around 2 minutes or so.
  3. Transfer the 2 packages of Natural Heaven Spaghetti Noodles to the large skillet with the onions, garlic, chicken and red bell peppers. Mix together and cook for 2 minutes. Pour the almond sauce and lime juice over the noodles and combine with a spoon. Sprinkle in the green onions and cook with a lid on for another 2-3 minutes or until the sauce is nice and combined.
  4. Garnish with chopped cashews, fresh cilantro, sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. Enjoy!

Notes

  • You can also sub zucchini noodles or spaghetti squash in place of the hearts of palm noodles.¬†
  • You can sub peanut butter for almond butter if desired. It will no longer be considered Paleo if you use that substitution.¬†
