  • Once the mixture is nice golden brown- BUT NOT BURNED!! Add in the almond milk and season with salt and pepper and chili flake if you want some heat. Continuously stir the mixture and let reduce slightly. Then add 3 pieces of cheese. This will allow the cheese to melt and also thicken the sauce.
  • Then add your noodles to the pan and let them cook for 1-2 minutes. This will allow the noodles to heat and then absorb some flavor. During this time scoop the avocado out of the shell and then give a rough chop.
