What Are Zucchini Noodles?
Zucchini noodles, zoodles…I’m going to stick with zucchini noodles today. That’s what they are, right? Zucchini in the shape of noodles. Because sometimes it’s all about how you cut things.
Like turkey sliced thin at the deli is a whole different thing than the exact same turkey sliced thick. You know I’m right…
Give me a big chunk of a vegetable and I might not like it as much as if it’s cut smaller and roasted, or spiralized like with these Asian Zucchini Noodles.
How Do You Make Zucchini Noodles?
You can use a Spiralizer or you can use a Mandoline Slicer like I did here, I got mine on Amazon and we use it all the time for hash browns or homemade potato chips.
When you’re done slicing the zucchini get it into a wok or a deep skillet and cook it for about 5 minutes. Then make a quick Asian flavored sauce and pour it all over.
Toss together and cook for another few minutes and you’re done. It really doesn’t get much easier than that. But then I broke out with my most famous line…what if we added chicken?
Yes, you can definitely add ground beef, chicken or pork to make this a pretty awesome stir fry recipe – and a pretty quick one at that.
These Asian Zucchini Noodles are the best way to get your vegetables in at dinner time!

I’ve not gotten on the zucchini noodle bandwagon but your recipe with the Asian peanut sauce makes me really want to jump on board.
I love zucchini noodles in general but this is the first sauce that made me forget that I was eating zucchini noodles! Spot on. Thank you.
We think so too! Thank you so much!
This was a really tasty, really simple sauce. Makes a nice light lunch! I sauteed the garlic with the courgetti (as we call zucchini noodles over the pond) so it wouldn’t be too strong. :)
Interesting! And sounds like the perfect lunch to me!
