That moment when you want a noodles dish for dinner but are fresh out of pasta and don’t want to go to the store…… Why do cravings for specific foods not in the house happen on the coldest, snowiest days?! Why?! When this happens you have two options, venture out to the grocery story to get said ingredients or get creative with what you have on hand. I chose the latter and ended up with this delicious, healthy dinner that I am excited to share with you!
I had 2 zucchini on hand and thought I would give my first try at making zucchini noodles, also known as zoodles, using a handheld spiralizer. Yes, I know I am very late to the ‘making noodles out of veggies party’, but better late than never! It took a total of 3 minutes to spiralize and they were totally fun to make. When trying to decide what to do with my first zucchini noodle dish I remembered I had szechuan sauce leftover from ordering takeout 2 days earlier and decided that would be my sauce. You can buy szechuan sauce at the store, get it from your favorite Chinese restaurant, or make your own. Added a few more veggies + lentils I had cooked earlier and a filling, vegan dinner was made:
