This recipe barely needs any explanation. Peanut noodles are amazing. Zucchini noodles are healthy and delicious. Zucchini peanut noodles are a win WIN for sure. The sauce I created makes enough for a double serving. If you are making this recipe for a larger crowd, I’d definitely triple the recipe. It’s super forgiving so don’t feel the need to be precise with any of the ingredients (just be careful not to add too much siracha!). These zucchini peanut noodles also keep really well in the fridge so you could make a big batch on Sunday’s and pack it up for lunch during the week. Add an avocado and maybe a hard boiled egg and you’ve got a delicious, healthful lunch that will keep you full and satisfied all afternoon.
Here’s the recipe! I’d love to know what other recipes are your favorite for spiralizing… I’m kind of obsessed! I use this little gadget (associate link) Premium Vegetable Spiralizer I love how small it is and that it barely takes up and room in my already overflowing kitchen!
2 medium sized zucchinis spiralized using something like this – Premium Vegetable Spiralizer
1/4 of one small red onion, sliced thin
1/2 cup fresh cilantro chopped
1 Tbsp. chopped peanuts
1 tsp. sesame seeds
1 heaping Tbsp. creamy peanut butter (could sub any other butter)
2 tsp. rice wine vinegar
juice from half a lime
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 tbsp. soy sauce or coconut aminos
1 big clove of garlic crushed
2 tsp. grated fresh ginger
1 tsp. siracha hot sauce
1 tsp. or more of warm water (used to moderate consistency to your liking)
Combine first three ingredients in a bowl or on a plate. Combine rest of ingredients for dressing in a small glass bowl and whisk well to combine. Add more water if you need to loosen up your dressing a bit- peanut butters and other butters are all very different consistencies so just add a tiny bit of water at a time until you get the sauce to the consistency you like.
Pour sauce over noodles and toss to combine.
Easy! These might be the best peanut noodles I’ve ever tasted. The zucchini is first and the texture is perfect for this ethnic dish. I don’t miss real noodles at all!
This little fish is a must in our house for grating ginger! Cutest kitchen “gadget” ever. Our was a wedding present but you can find a similar one here:
He kind of looks unhappy. LOL!
Have a great weekend!
