Sesame Peanut Zoodles

This is one of my favorite zoodle (aka zucchini noodle) preparations and a go to filling yet healthy feel good lunch!

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 large zucchinis

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter- creamy preferred, but chunky works too!

  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • ~1 tablespoon chili garlic paste (more or less depending on your spicy preferences)

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • chopped green onions, cilantro, and/or sesame seeds for garnish

What to do:

  • Spiralize your zoodles! Some have fancier spiralizers or mandolins, but this $5 spiralizer works great if you don’t have on already! This recipe doesn’t require cooking the zoodles, they are consumed raw and prepared cold.

  • Whisk together remaining ingredients (everything except zoodles and garnish). Taste test and adjust to your tastes! Not spicy enough? Add more chili garlic paste. Not salty enough? Add more soy sauce, etc.

  • Add zoodles to bowl and toss together.

  • Chop cilantro and green onion and garnish, along with sesame seeds.
