If you don't have these exact ingredients, Scrounge with the things you have at home and you may end up creating something even better!

  • If you don’t have quinoa, use brown rice pasta or zucchini noodles

  • If you don’t have olive oil, use avocado oil or water

  • If you don’t have pasta sauce, use salsa

  • If you don’t have avocado, do without
