This recipe is not overpowering in spice or very spicy. It’s is fine for most pallets. You can adjust as you need. The original recipe called for Chinese noodles, unfortunately those are extremely high in carbs. My suggestion would be over rice. A half cup of cooked rice is a good portion for a calorie reduced plan. Anything you chose, the key is portion size. Your choices are endless so have fun and make it your own.
