Tired of boring pasta? Try making zoodles with a quick spiralizer. Blend No-Peanut Sauce and enjoy your meal in 15 minutes. Spicy No-Peanut Sauce is made from almonds, sunbutter, and/or cashews. Better than peanuts which often contain mold, this yummy sauce is also free of glycemic sugars and nightshades. It won’t spike your blood sugar or cause weight gain if you use the recommended non-glycemic sweeteners.
Zoodles are zucchini noodles, a guilt-free way to enjoy pasta. Tastier and healthier than rice, corn, quinoa or high-carb processed noodles, this is fresh vegetable spaghetti! Once you fall in love with zoodles you’ll never go back! I like them steamed lightly, however they’re also delicious raw. Look for organic zucchini, as non-organic zucchini is mostly GMO, genetically modified, which is bad news. Figure about 1 medium zucchini for 2 people, or about 1/2 medium zucchini per person. Serves 2.
Cook zoodles briefly in any steamer with 1/2 inch water in a saucepan. Bring water to a boil, cover, turn down the heat, and allow noodles to steam 1-2 minutes – to barely soften. If your have a big batch it will take longer, and it’s a good idea to stir them a bit so the steam touches all sides. Zoodles will get limp and soggy very quickly if they’re overcooked, so watch carefully, and remove them from heat before that happens.
Don’t have a steamer? No worries, just cook zoodles briefly – very briefly – in a shallow covered pan with 1/2’inch of water in the bottom. Dump into a colander and rinse with cool water to stop the cooking. I like my zoodles served hot, however they’re also delicious raw.
