“zoodle” stir-fry with sesame-ginger tofu

who doesn’t love a good stir-fry? here’s my revised take on an easy, simple stir-fry using zucchini noodles (love my spiralizer!) instead of flat rice noodles – since the peanut sauce is gluten-free, that means this stir-fry is as well! next time i’m going to make my own peanut sauce, so i’ll share the recipe with you guys when that happens…

what you’ll need:

  • 2 large zucchini (green squash)
  • yellow onion
  • red bell pepper
  • peanut sauce (i wasn’t very adventurous, so i used the organic peanut sauce from whole foods)
  • peanuts, crushed
  • extra-firm tofu
  • sesame ginger marinade

how to make it:

  • thinly slice yellow onion and bell pepper and sauté over low heat in 2-3 tablespoons of peanut sauce, adding extra sauce as necessary
  • using your spiralizer or julienne cutter, make fresh zucchini noodles (“zoodles”) and set aside
  • remove tofu from packaging and press out extra liquid; slice tofu into thin, rectangular pieces
  • saute tofu in separate skillet over low-medium heat in sesame ginger marinade, flipping occasionally until golden brown
  • add zucchini noodles to onion and bell pepper mix, sautéing on slightly higher heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring as necessary
  • serve tofu over warm zucchini noodles, and top with crushed peanuts!
