Ingredients

  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 2 large carrots peeled
  • 3/4 cup cashews
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro chopped

Sauce:

  • 2 heaping tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon sriracha sauce (or more if you like it spicy!)
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 2 cloves garlic minced

Instructions

  • Spiralize the carrots on the thinnest setting, and spiralize the zucchini on the medium setting. Set aside.
  • Add the peanut butter, hoisin sauce, sriracha sauce, soy sauce, lime juice, and garlic to a skillet on medium-high heat. Stirring constantly, cook it for about 2 minutes or until the garlic has just started to cook.
  • Add the cashews, zucchini, and carrots. Using tongs or two large spoons, gently toss/lift up the pan contents every 10-20 seconds or so for about 4-5 minutes until everything is lightly cooked and heated through. The zucchini will release some liquid, which will help to make a nice sauce. When it's almost ready, add the cilantro in and toss. Serve immediately.

Notes

  • The zucchini I bought from the grocery store were fairly skinny and around 6-8 inches long. Keep in mind that home-grown zucchini is typically a lot larger. Be careful not to overcook this dish, or it'll end up a watery mess.
