Vegan Thai Peanut Zucchini Noodles
Who doesn’t want to enjoy Thai noodles without all the carbs from pasta?
Don’t get me wrong…I adore traditional pasta noodles!
But, I need more fresh vegetables…like zucchini, and less carbs…like pasta.
So…zoodles, dude! It’s the perfect solution for noodle lovers everywhere.
What’s the best way to cut zucchini into zoodles?
The easiest, quickest way to cut zucchini into zoodles is with a dedicated spiralizer.
What’s the best spiralizer for zucchini noodles?
I own this spiralizer and I have never thought beyond it, which means I’m completely satisfied with it.
It does everything I need and is super affordable.
If you don’t have a countertop spiralizer, you can use a handheld Titan Vegetable Peeler and Slicer, which I actually did before I got the OXO spiralizer.
You can also use an everyday vegetable peeler, cutting ribbons of zucchini in a lengthwise direction until you reach the middle (seeds).
This will take longer. I’ve done it. I prefer this spiralizer any day.
Do you have to cook zoodles?
It’s really personal preference and depends on the recipe and your interest.
Some people prefer to eat them raw, while I prefer to lightly sauté mine because it just brings out their flavor.
To cook them, I simply sauté them in a pan with a little olive oil over medium heat until they start to become more pliable and flimsy.
That’s it! Oh, and I sprinkle a little salt over them.
