Spicy Zucchini Noodles

My post today is dedicated to my wonderful friends who have been motivating and inspiring me to make and eat low carb meals. I just love my Masti group, and can't thank them enough for their support and motivation.

Yes, if you haven't guessed it yet, this recipe is gluten free and has low to no carb...although this looks like delicious spicy schezwan noodles that we Indians enjoy, there is not a bit of noodle added to this recipe...Yahoooo :)

I have always been skeptical in making zucchini noodles. 11 months back I bought a spiral cutter and love spiral cut carrots made in it, but was never too motivated to try zucchini. Maybe today was the day. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed the flavors of schezwan noodles with these noodles made of vegetable, without even noticing that there weren't traditional noodles in it. It was indeed a guilt-free dinner tonite!

Using all veggies I would regularly use for Chinese cooking.

You could also manually cut zucchini into thin strips or use a Mandoline slicer.

It is so easy to use. I love it!

Let zucchini noodles rest on a paper towel to get rid of excess moisture.

In a wok or a pan, heat 1 tsp. oil. saute 1/2 cup slices onions, 1 tbsp. chopped ginger, 1/2 cup julienne bell pepper. 1/4 cup carrots julienne and few beans cut on an angle. Saute veggies for 3-4 mins. 
Add 1/2 tsp. salt.

Add 1-2 tbsp. of homemade schezwan sauce and 1 tsp. of vinegar. 
You could also add Sriracha Sauce or chilli garlic sauce.

Mix well.

Add zucchini noodles and toss them well for 2-3 minutes on high heat for the flavors to blend. You need not cook them much. Toss in 1/2 cup shredded cabbage for crunch.

Serve and enjoy.
Guilt-free, No Carbs, Healthy Eating!!
