Zoodle Lo Mein

I was gonna put this one off until zucchini was in season, but I am ready for summer and the temperature is unseasonably high, so, let's do this!

Source: Pickles n' Honey | Serves: 2 | Time: 15 min


Changes: used pre-spiralized #zucchini; replaced soy sauce with coconut aminos; added more cabbage and broccoli; skipped edamame


Ingredients


Sauce

1/4 cup coconut aminos

2 tbsp sweet chili sauce

1 tbsp toasted sesame oil


The Rest

2 tbsp toasted sesame oil, divided

18 oz spiralized zucchini

Salt, to taste

3 cloves garlic, minced

3 green onions, sliced thin (separate white and green parts)

5 oz shiitake #mushrooms, de-stemmed and sliced

1 carrot, shredded

1 1/2 cup shredded #cabbage

1 1/2 cup chopped #broccoli

1 tbsp sesame seeds, for serving


Instructions

Make the sauce: Add all of the ingredients to a small bowl and stir to combine. Set aside.


Make the noodles: Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of sesame oil followed by the zucchini noodles to the skillet. Lightly season with salt and cook stirring occasionally until just barely tender, about 2 minutes. Transfer the noodles to a large serving bowl, making sure to drain off any excess liquid. Set aside.


Cook the vegetables: Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of sesame oil to the skillet, followed by the garlic and white parts of the onions. Cook for 1 minute, then add the mushrooms, #carrots, cabbage, and broccoli. Stir to combine and cook until tender but crisp, about 3 minutes.


Add the cooked vegetables and sauce to the bowl of zucchini noodles. Stir to combine. Season with salt to taste. Top with the green parts of the onions and sesame seeds.


Serve immediately.

Exercise

After 14 straight days of hitting incrementally higher step goals, I'm taking a break. My right calf muscle is not in good shape. Gotta listen to your body, right? Still, managed a 1.2 mile walk.
