How to prepare your veggie noodles?

To prepare your veggie noodles, you’ll need a spiralizer of some sort, or you may also use a mandolin. Before I bought my Veggie Bullet which I absolutely LOVE for spiralizing vegetables, I used a mandolin to make vegetable noodles. It definitely works, but it is a lot more time consuming! (Not to mention the extreme caution you’ll want to use if preparing these with a mandolin.) There are a ton of different spiralizers out there, and I’ve tested out a few of them and the Veggie Bullet is definitely my favourite. It’s easy to use and fully automated, providing evenly cut noodles.

Once you spiralize your zucchini, sweet potato and carrots, thinly slice your mushrooms and red pepper. Then add all the veggies to a large non stick skillet and cook for about 6-8 minutes until softened and heated through. Do not overcook the vegetables.

While the veggie noodles are cooking, add all your sauce ingredients to a small sauce pan. Heat only until warm. No need to cook out any of these ingredients, making it a super quick sauce you can have ready in minutes.

Transfer your cooked veggie noodles into bowls or plates, then top with the sauce and extra peanuts, coconut, or lime wedges if you please.
