Printable Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 cup spiralized zucchini (about 1 medium zucchini)

  • 1 cup shredded carrots (or spiralized)

  • 1 cup shredded green cabbage

  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage

  • 1 cup spiralized English cucumber

  • 1/4 cup sliced scallions

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

dressing:

  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (or garlic paste)

  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger (or ginger paste)

Directions

  1. Place the spiralized zucchini, carrots, green cabbage, red cabbage, cucumbers, scallions, and cilantro in a large bowl.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing until smooth; pour over vegetables and mix well.

  3. Serve immediately.

Notes

  • Heating the lime for 10-15 seconds in the microwave before squeezing will enable it to release more juice.

  • The vegetables will release their juices as the salad sits so you will want to avoid adding the sauce until just before serving.

  • Serve with a drizzle of Sriracha if you like some heat.

Keto Sesame Zoodles with Roasted Pork

Patricia Reitz

This delicious, low carb, Keto-friendly recipe is a revision of one I shared several years ago (here). Instead of using asian noodles, I used spiralized zucchini. The zucchini is barely cooked - basically it’s just heated through in the sauce just before serving so it maintains its structural integrity and ever-so-slight crunch. If you don’t have leftover roasted pork loin to add, just omit it and serve the zucchini doused in the tasty sesame sauce as a side dish.

Do you have an inspiralizer - there’s just something zen about spiralizing veggies. I love-love-love using it.

Just for the fun of it, I decided to challenge myself and see if I could eat the entire bowl using only chopsticks. I had a great time slurping away and I’m happy to report I was able to finish my lunch without the use of a fork or spoon! I hope you’ll give this yummy recipe a try. Enjoy!
