Got Zoodles? We Have 3 Recipes That You Will Want To Eat Every Day!
Have you heard all the rage about zoodles? Zoodles are simply “noodles” that are cut out of zucchini. They look like white flour noodles but are super healthy because you make them from zucchini. Many people say that after cooking they can’t taste the difference.
Zucchini, sometimes called summer squash or green squash, have incredible health benefits. Something you certainly can’t say about white flour pasta! Zucchinies can lower blood pressure, are natural anti-inflammatory and cancer fighting foods!
If you don’t have one yet, go buy a kitchen tool called a spiral cutter. This will make cutting your zucchini into the perfect pasta shape. Once you have your tool and your zucchini, you are ready to go!
We have three fantastic recipes that you will love so much, you will find yourself craving them!
Got your zucchini? OK, then let’s go Zoodle!
1. Zoodles Kung Pao for Two
- 2 Medium, organic zucchini, ends trimmed but not peeled
- 1 Teaspoon olive oil
- 6 Ounce boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into ½ size pieces
- ½ Organic red bell pepper, cut into ½ size pieces
- 1 Teaspoon sesame seed oil
- 2 Large cloves of organic garlic, minced
- 2 Tablespoons of crushed, dry roasted peanuts
- 1 Teaspoon of freshly ground ginger root
- 2 Tablespoons of organic scallions thinly sliced
- 2 Teaspoons of cornstarch
- 2 Teaspoons of sugar
- ½ Tablespoon red chili paste (optional)
- 2.5 Tablespoons of water
- 1 Teaspoon of hoisin sauce
- 1 Tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
- 1.5 Tablespoons of reduced sodium soy sauce
Using the thickest possible blade of your shredder, cut the zucchini into long, spaghetti like strips. If you like, you can cut the pieces into 6-inch-long sections so that they are easier to eat. In a small bowl, mix together the ingredients for the sauce using a wire whisk or fork and set aside. Season your chicken breasts with a bit of salt and pepper (to taste).Heat the oil in a large, deep pot, pan, or wok. Turn the fire to a medium high heat. Add the chicken pieces and cook them until they are brown (about 4 to 5 minutes), then set aside to drain on a paper towel. Add the sesame oil, garlic, and ginger to the pan and stir for about 30 seconds. Add the soy sauce mixture and bell pepper. Bring to boil, then reduce heat. Simmer until this has thickened, about another 2 minutes. Now stir in your zoodles and mix well for another 2 minutes. It might seem dry at first but after about 30 seconds, the zoodles release their water and make a terrific sauce. After 2 minutes, add your chicken and coat with the sauce. Divide into two bowls and top with the scallions and peanuts.
