So, I got a spiralizer, can you tell?!? Also, you should totally get a spiralizer.

I’ve been making this dish like, every other day. It’s super yummy, perfect for the warmer weather, and fairly filling. I LOVE cold sesame noodles and these are a really nice alternative for a more everyday not as fat me.

Ingredients:
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1 1/2 tbsp. rice vinegar
3 tbsp. peanut butter
2 tsp. sesame oil
Half a packet no-calorie sweetener (or 1 tsp. sugar)
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 thumb sized chunk of minced ginger
2 large zucchini
2 tbsp. chopped scallions
1 tsp. sesame seeds
Crushed red pepper for serving

Directions: 


1) In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, vinegar, peanut butter, sesame oil, sweetener, garlic, and ginger.

2) Spiralize your zucchini. If you don’t have a spiralizer, they are really cheap. But you could always just carefully take a knife and slice it circularly around the zucchini. I’m gonna recommend the spiralizer, though, it’s so quick and easy!!!

3) Place zucchini noodles in a medium bowl. Add sauce, and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, or overnight.

4) Give mixture a stir, and top with scallions and sesame seeds.
