Thai peanut noodles have been my latest craving. The salad-like noodle dish is usually served cold, making it perfect for spring or summer.

For me, it’s all about the sauce. The sauce is incredibly creamy and it hits all the flavor profiles. It’s a blend of peanut butter, soy sauce, honey, garlic, ginger, vinegar, sesame, and sriracha.

After a weekend of overindulging, I decided to make a lighter version of thai peanut noodles, using zucchini noodles. Of course, the peanut sauce goes well with zucchini noodles too.

I really loved how these turned out and will definitely be making them a lot in the next few months.

Zucchini noodles are tossed in a flavorful and creamy Thai peanut sauce.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil or canola oil
  • 3 medium zucchini spiralized
  • 1 carrot shredded
  • 1 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 3 tbsp chopped unsalted dry roasted peanuts

thai peanut sauce

  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter use unsweetened if eating low carb
  • 2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey or sugar free syrup or erythritol
  • 1 1/2 tbsp seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp sriracha
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp sesame paste

Directions:

  1. Add olive oil to a large skillet and bring to medium high heat. Once oil is hot, add in zucchini noodles. Cook until water releases and zucchini are just cooked (tender but still crisp). Turn off heat. Drain zucchini noodles.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, add in all sauce ingredients. Whisk until smooth. Taste and adjust as needed.
  3. Add carrots to zucchini noodles. Add about 1/2 the sauce and toss noodles in sauce until evenly coated. Add more sauce as needed. Garnish with cilantro and peanuts before serving.

Notes:

  • You do not need to add the entire amount of sauce to your noodles. I recommend that you start with half the sauce and add more as needed to suit your personal tastes.
  • I use this spiralizer.*
