Today, Brielle shares her sweet and zingy ginger zoodles recipe with us. Zoodles are zucchini noodles, which means they are an excellent choice if you are gluten-free!

Honey Ginger Zoodles

Ingredients:

  • 1 thumb size of diced ginger
  • 1/4 cup of honey or agave nectar
  • 1 tbs of lemon juice
  • 2 spiralized zucchinis
  • 1 spiralized squash
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 medium sized yellow onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbs of extra virgin olive oil

Directions:

  1. Heat frying pan over medium heat. Add olive oil, garlic, and onions. Stir occasionally for about 2 minutes or until onions are slightly cooked and translucent.
  2. Next, add ginger. Stir the ginger a few times for about a minute.
  3. Add spiralized zucchinis and squash. Cook everything for about 2 minutes while occasionally stirring.
  4. In a separate bowl mix 1/4 cup of honey and 1 tbs of lemon juice. Add cucumbers and stir.
  5. Pour mixture over contents in the pan. Immediately remove the pan from heat. Stir allowing the sauce to mix in. This will create a liquid for the noodles. If desired for added flavor: Pour in additional honey and lemon juice and stir.
  6. Everything should cook for a total of 5 minutes. Vegetables should be soft like noodles.

    Kelp Noodle Stir Fry

    Ingredients:

    • 1/3 package of kelp noodles (or serving size)
    • 1/2 cup mushrooms
    • Fresh red cabbage
    • 1/3 red onion
    • 1/3 zucchini 
    • 1/3 red pepper 
    • 1 tsp Garlic powder
    • 1 tsp Ginger powder 
    • 1 tsp Pink Himalayan salt
    Sauce:
    • 2 tablespoons of raw PB
    • 1 tablespoon - 1 1/2 tablespoon of tamari or soy sauce 
    • Add water to thin it out— choose your consistency!
    • Stir ingredients in a small bowl!
    Directions:
    1. In a wok or large pan, add chopped onions, mushrooms, zucchini, red peppers and cook with small amounts of water until veggies are sweating and onions are translucent! Add in garlic, ginger, and salt for flavor. 
    2. Rinse and drain kelp noodles from package (follow package instructions). 
    3. Add in noodles to pan or wok and stir. Combine sauce ingredients into the pan and wok. Let cook through on low heat for a few minutes and enjoy! Note: the kelp noodles don’t need further cooking, so once you think the veggies and sauce are combined enough— you are ready to eat! Add fresh lime or cilantro if desired.
