For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
You’ll notice that this recipe uses Sriracha, which is 0.5 syns for 1 tbsp, but we tend not to bother synning it because we’re only using 2 or 3 drops, but of course it’s up to you if you want to syn it.
This recipe also calls for julienned carrots, so a mandolin is, I won’t say a neccessity, but it certainly makes the job a lot easier. You can pick one up from Amazon .
We use Sukrin 1 which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin 1 over onAmazon UK.
Sukrin 1 doesn’t have that strange after taste that a lot of artificial sweeteners do! It also shares the exact same sweetness and weight to sugar – which makes it really easy to substitute in recipes like this Edamame, Sugar Snap and Carrot Asian Salad.
If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.
That being said you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.
