Zoodles are noodles made of zucchini. Not only they are much healthier and lighter than pasta or rice, but they are also easy to make, filling and delicious! As their texture is very similar to pasta, they can be used as a substitute in lots of classic recipes. No wonder everybody loves them!
How do you make zoodles? Zoodles can easily be made with a spiralizer. They go from a few dollars up to 30 dollars, and they’re all worth the investment. They fun too!
Here I have prepared zoodles in a peanut butter (satay) sauce, sautéed with red peppers and white onion.
- 2 medium-sized zucchini
- 1 red bell pepper
- 1 white onion
- 2 green onions
- Pinch of sesame seeds
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- 3 tablespoons tamari sauce
- 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 3 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds oil
- 2-in ginger root piece
- 1 teaspoon chili flakes
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
Make the zoodles with the help of a spiralizer. Clean and dice the green onions and the white onion. Clean the pepper and cut it into thin slices. Set aside.
Gently blend the peanut butter, tamari sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, ginger root, chili flakes, and maple syrup. Set aside.
In a large skillet, heat the coconut oil. Add the onion and pepper and cook until the onion is soft and translucent. Add a tablespoon of satay sauce, stir well, and continue cooking for more 5 minutes. Bring the heat to low and add the zoodles. Gently fold the zoodles to incorporate the sauce, pepper, and onion. Take off the heat.
Transfer to the serving bowls, topping with fresh green onion and sesame seeds. If you want a more savory taste, add one teaspoon satay sauce. Serve hot or cold.
Enjoy your satay zoodles!
