Cold Zoodles with Spicy Peanut Sauce

Oh, the Veggetti: one of my newest and how-did-I-live-without-you-for-so-long kitchen gadgets.

If you’re looking for new and delicious ways to food swap, this is the best ultimate. Cutting out pasta was an absolute “no way” standard in my book. I neeeeed those carbs. I waaaant those carbs. That was until my mom gave me one of the greatest gifts ever for my birthday: the veggie spiralizer  🙂

My noodle cravings have been 100% satisfied by making “noodles” out of zucchini, yellow squash, and cucumber. Either my body hasn’t caught on or this whole lifestyle change has completely gone into effect, but I would much rather have the veggie noodles. *gasp!* That’s right. I’m not one to joke about my pasta, but this is the real deal. If you don’t have one, get one. I promise you’ll love it! (You could also use a julienne peeler. That works too)

With this recipe, I’m using zucchini noodles (aka zoodles). Zucchini mimics any noodle beautifully as it has little to no significant flavor. A cucumber (aka coodle) has a more prominent flavor, so use cucumber where you’d like that flavor to shine.


Cold Zoodles with Spicy Peanut Sauce

• 1 medium/large zucchini
• 2 tbsp PB2
• 1 tsp maple syrup
• 1 tsp low sodium soy sauce
• 1/2 tsp garlic chili paste (more or less to taste, sriracha would work too- I used Sambal Oelek brand)
• 2 tbsp water

Directions:

⋅ In a small bowl, mix together the spicy peanut sauce: PB2, syrup, soy sauce, garlic chili paste & water. Set aside.
⋅ Use a veggie spiralizer or julienne peeler and make the ZOODLES 🙂
⋅ In a bowl, pour the peanut sauce on the zoodles and toss gently to combine.
⋅ Serve with crushed peanuts and scallions (optional)

You could also add chicken, tofu or shrimp for added protein. Also, if you like your noodles warm, just toss everything into a skillet. Easy peasy 😉

    Eek! I’m certain I’m being super dense here, but can you please clarify what you mean by “sugar free syrup”? This looks delicious, and I can’t wait to make it. Thank you!

    Is PB2 actual peanut butter or something else? Thinking usually peanut butter is high in calories . Thanks! Used my veggetti for the first time tonight!

    Thanks for a really great recipe. I have already tried making zoodles with peanut sauce with my recently bought spiralizer, but I have added salmon to the recipe. I think adding chicken or shrimps would be so yummy too, so thanks for the great idea.
