I love zoodles. (noodles made using spiralized vegetables) They are super filling and versatile… and they actually taste really good! I do not have a spiralizer, even if I did I know there is a very good chance I wouldn’t use it. My Whole Foods sells containers of zoodle goodness ready to go, perfect for me & my busy schedule. Zoodles are awesome since they really take no time to make, so as long as I have some in the fridge, I can have dinner on the table in 10 minutes! I have two go-to zoodle recipes I wanted to share with you, because who isn’t looking for a quick and healthy meal?!
Tomato Sauce Zoodles:
This is my basic tomato sauce recipe tossed with Zoodles. It is so good, the kids even eat it.
You will need:
Zoodles (I use a combo of zucchini, squash and carrot)
Tomato Sauce (I prefer brands that have no more than 3 grams of sugar per serving)
1 small onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, diced
1 cup of Gardein or Quorn crumbles
1. Saute the onion and garlic in a bit of ghee until the onions are transparent
2. Add the tomato sauce and crumbles (or real meat of your choice)
3. Simmer for 5
4. Toss in the zoodles and simmer for another 5-10 minutes
I top mine with real Parmesan cheese and it is a delicious and filling meal, that is ready in no time!
This is my own variation from a recipe I found on Kelley and Cricket, so I am not going to post the full recipe here, but I will say that I use 2 tablespoons of tamari (instead of 1), I use water instead of broth to thin out the sauce and I use way more than 1-2 tablespoons and instead of maple syrup I use coconut sugar. This peanut sauce (well, almond butter sauce) is SO good. I have to say I also make her sticky garlic noodles ALL THE TIME and it is amazing.
