Recipe: Stir Fry Noodles…ZOODLES!

Today’s post allowed me to use a really fun kitchen gadget (fun in the kitchen is relative, right?!) that I received as a gift last year (Thanks, Mom!), is healthy AND the ingredients were very inexpensive!

I LOVE pasta, but, obviously, you can’t eat pasta every day. When I started reading about turning veggies into pasta, I had to jump on the bandwagon. I’ve been a veggie person all my life, so I was pretty excited to try this recipe: Stir Fry Noodles made from zucchini.

Ignore the green beans…brain cramp!
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 yellow onions, spiralized (I only used a little over one onion’s worth after I spiralized the onions; in the spiralizer, I used the larger ‘pasta’ blade)
  • 4 small zucchini, spiralized (I used the smallest ‘pasta’ blade; may try the bigger one next time)
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • Mushrooms (I added about 1 1/2 cups)
  • Sugar snap peas (meant to buy these and I picked up green beans – I was too busy listening to the Pelicans game on my phone and wasn’t paying attention…clearly!)

  4. Stir in zucchini and continue to cook for 2 minutes.DSC_0021

  6. Remove from heat.

A few notes:
-I was pleasantly surprised at the easy of using the spiraler. It didn’t take long AT all.
-Feel free to add more veggies! Mushrooms and my would-be snap peas were just a thought. The possibilities are endless!
-ALL of the ingredients (with the exception of vegetable oil) for this cost about $22. That included the teriyaki and soy sauce, as well as the sesame seeds (which were about $7); this meal is inexpensive, healthy and delicious!
Hope you enjoy — I can’t wait to do some more cooking with the spiraler — after reading the little booklet, you can spiral anything! Ha ha!
Have a great day!
