A Zucchini Dish That You're Gonna Love

August 06, 2020

Get ready to upgrade your vegetable game! These Sesame Zucchini Noodles are a delicious, easy side dish to throw together without having to turn the stove on. Feel free to add in shredded chicken, shrimp, or a protein of choice to make this dish more substantial.

Don’t want to spiralize your own noodles? You can get pre-packaged spiralized zucchini in the produce aisle of most grocery stores. If you don’t have a spiralizer and you can’t find pre-packaged spiralized zucchini, simply cut the zucchini and cucumber into thin matchsticks. This recipe will also work well with spiralized celery root, carrots, summer squash, or even kelp noodles. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs zucchini
  • ⅓ cup tahini*
  • 3 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1-2 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1-2 tsp grated fresh garlic
  • 1 bunch of scallions, chopped
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes*
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste

*If you’re currently on the detox, leave out these ingredients. Without the tahini, it will be a much lighter take on the dish. However, the coconut aminos, fish sauce, sesame oil, ginger and garlic will still provide tons of flavor!

Directions:

  1. Place zucchini noodles on a kitchen towel to get out any excess moisture.
  2. Meanwhile, mix together the tahini, grated ginger, grated garlic, coconut aminos, toasted sesame oil and fish sauce.
  3. Combine the sauce with the zucchini noodles and top with sesame seeds, scallions and red pepper flakes.

 Enjoy!
