Vegetarian Pad Thai Zoodles

Vegetarian Pad Thai Zoodles

Zoodles, where were you for the first 27 years of my life? I got a spiralizer (zoodler, as I say) about 2 years ago and it has been such a great addition to my life. Zoodles are a great way to make a healthy, vegetarian dinner thats guilt-free and delightful. This recipe is a basic vegetarian pad thai zoodle, that is quick to whip up for lunch or dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 t milk (unsweetened almond or soy is okay too!)
  • 1 t sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 t minced ginger
  • 1/2 red bell pepper chopped
  • 1/2 red onion chopped
  • 1/2 lime juiced
  • 1 T hoisin sauce
  • 2 T sriracha
  • 2 T soy sauce (low-sodium)
  • 1 t honey
  • 1 t cornstarch
  • 1/4 C crushed peanuts
  • green onions to garnish

Recipe:

  1. Use your spiralizer to make your zoodles. Fold into a dry paper towel and allow to sit while you prep your other ingredients.
  2. Combine lime juice, hoisin, soy sauce, sriracha, and honey in a small bowl and whisk together.
  3. In a pan on medium heat, quickly sauté zoodles for about 3 minutes and set aside. This helps get rid of the remaining water that didn’t drain from the zoodles onto the paper towels.
  4. Whisk the eggs and milk and scramble to a light fluffy consistency. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  5. Sauté garlic, ginger, onions, and peppers in sesame oil. When the onions become translucent and soften, add in the mixed sauce.
  6. Heat through for 2 minutes and add in cornstarch. Mix thoroughly.
  7. Add the zoodles to the pan and stir fry for about 3 minutes until tender. Then add in eggs and crushed peanuts and toss completely.
  8. Serve immediately or reheat with green onions and lime wedges as garnish.
