Sesame Zoodles

I received a really fun gift for my birthday called a "spiralizer." This hand-cranked "machine" transforms fruit and vegetables into noodles! It inspires food creativity- my daughter sauteed apple spirals with sugar and cinnamon for a great oatmeal topper, I made cucumber ribbons for a cucumber salad and just tonight we made these zucchini noodles.  They tasted perfect with our korean beef and rice!

Recipe adapted from here
Sesame dressing:
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp creamy peanut butter
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 4-5 medium zucchini
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • *optional 2 Tbsp sesame seeds
  1. Whisk all the ingredients for your dressing together in a small bowl and microwave for 45 seconds to combine.  Set aside.
  2. Using your Spiralizer, prepare zucchini into long noodles or ribbons.
  3. Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add "zoodles" to skillet and saute for 3-4 minutes until they are slightly softened. You can skip this step altogether and serve the "zoodles" raw as well!
  4. Zucchini will release liquids, so when your "zoodles" are done cooking to the desired amount, drain before tossing with marinade.
  5. Toss with marinade and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
