  1. Sounds great! I have everything except for the coconut aminos is there anything that could be used as a substitute?

    1. You can usually find it at your local Co-op or Whole Foods. Otherwise, order it on Amazon. Braggs should work perfectly fine though.

  2. Do you have any ideas on what I could substitute the tomato paste with? I tend not to tolerate tomatoes so well. Thanks

  3. Do you think that it would still taste great without the mustard? We have a mustard allergy here.
