Recipe Notes

SOS Free option: Use 2–4 pitted dates in place of maple syrup if a sweetener is needed. The dates will blend smoother if they have been soaked for 30 minutes or more before blending. You may need to add a little water (2–3 Tbls) to get the right consistency to easily dress the noodles.
