  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil: I like to use this fruity Zoe olive oil which has a fantastic flavor and deep color- it’s inexpensive & I like to keep a few liters stocked up in my pantry.  For the quality of oil you get, it’s an excellent value.
  • Long Pasta – I used a whole wheat pasta like this one, which has higher fiber than normal pastas. Wheat pasta typically has 0 sodium, but some noodle varieties like soba noodles or udon do!  Make sure to read your labels.
  • Peanut Butter: for that creamy classic peanut noodle flavor. Like my peanuts, I only use unsalted peanut butter to keep it low so.
  • Low Sodium Soy Sauce / or Tamari / or Liquid Aminos – Liquid aminos have a fraction of the sodium, but still a ton of the great flavor of soy sauce.
  • Unseasoned Rice Vinegar – I like to get unseasoned vinegar to control the amount of sugar and salt in this dish.
  • Low Sodium Chili Paste Hot sauces can contain sodium from added salt or preservatives. I like this chili crisp because it has just 75 mg of sodium per serving. A great alternative to sriracha (which has 3x the sodium per same amount of sauce).
  • Lime Juice
