Pad Thai Zoodles - a quick, simple and healthy lunch or dinner that is on the table in just 20 minutes. 

Ingredients
  • For the sauce:
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons low-sodium fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • For the pad Thai:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or sesame oil divided
  • 3 medium zucchini spiralized
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger minced
  • 1 large carrot spiralized
  • 1 red bell pepper finely sliced
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 3 green onions sliced
  • 110 grams (1 cup) bean sprouts
  • 15 grams ( 1/4 cup) + more for garnishing fresh cilantro finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons peanuts toasted and roughly chopped
  • Optional: Lime wedges for serving
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl whisk all the sauce ingredients together. Set aside
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat. Add the zucchini noodles and cook for 2 minutes. Don't overcook them, they'll get soggy.
  3. Remove the noodles from the pan and drain the excess water.
  4. Wipe the same pan to remove the water, and then re-heat the pan on medium-high heat.
  5. Add the remaining oil, garlic and ginger. Sauté until fragrant then add the bell pepper, carrot, and green onions. Cook for about 3 minutes or until tender.
  6. Add the egg and stir in with the vegetable until the egg is cooked.
  7. Put the zucchini noodles back into the same pan, then add the sauce. Cook for about 1 minute or until the zoodles are heated through.
  8. Stir in the bean sprouts and cilantro, toss and remove from heat.
  9. Serve the pad thai zoodles with roasted peanuts, cilantro, and lime wedges.
  10. Enjoy!
