This particular recipe is special to me because it is made using many different products and veggies that are grown and made on Kauaʻi by some of the people dearest to me! I created this recipe alone in my kitchen, but it truly felt like a collaboration between all of the makers and farmers.

I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this incredible food community here on Kauaʻi, and to have the chance to feed people and help inspire tasty, locally inspired dinners! It is such a highlight to be able to chat ʻulu noodles with people at the Grove Farm Market, and then do a little grocery shopping myself. I love all of the farmers and am so thankful to share a space with them!
