The sauce is absolutely IRRESISTIBLE. It’s full of bright colors and flavors for a satisfying veggie meal. Try it and let us know what you think in the comments below!

Almond Butter and Veggie Zoodles

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 1 1x
  • Category: Main Course

Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil or melted coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons green onions (sliced diagonally into ½” pieces)
  • ½ cup broccoli (cut into small florets)
  • ¼ cup red bell pepper (sliced)
  • ½ cup carrots (thinly sliced)
  • 1 medium zucchini (spiralized)
  • Red pepper flakes (for sprinkling)
  • OPTIONAL: Sesame seeds (for sprinkling)

FOR SAUCE:

  • 2 tablespoons canned full-fat coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon tamari
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger (finely grated)
  • 1 teaspoon chili paste (such as sambal oelek (or pinch red pepper flakes))
  • 1 clove garlic (finely minced)

Instructions

  1. Whisk sauce ingredients together in a medium bowl and set aside.
  2. Heat oil in large pan. Add the green onions and sauté for 1-2 minutes, then add broccoli, carrots, and red bell pepper. Lower heat, if needed. Cook until vegetables are bright in color, and just barely tender.
  3. Toss gently to coat the veggies with the sauce. Let simmer to thicken the sauce.
  4. Remove from heat and serve immediately on top of the zoodles. Garnish with red pepper flakes and sesame seeds, if desired.


Notes

Note: The sauce and veggies can be made ahead, and the zucchini can be spiralized ahead. But don’t combine with the “zoodles” until right before serving.

Otherwise, the liquid from the zucchini will seep out and make the sauce watery.

    I like the tip about not adding zoodles until very end .i always end up with a soup broth! My question is do you not heat up the zoodles at all? My process has been to season with salt and pepper – toss with olive oil and sautée a few mins.

    Hi Angela,

    In this recipe we leave them raw. But you can definitely season and sautee the zoodles before enjoying if that’s your preference!

    What if you can’t tolerate coconut in any form?

    Hi Judy,

    Coconut not your friend? Don’t worry, swap in water or almond milk. The consistency will be a little thinner, but it will still be yummy!

    One of my favorite recipes EVER. I prefer to not heat/thicken the sauce and use it on almost any sauteed veggies. Adore!

    Can I use soy sauce instead of tamari?

    Hi Andrea,

    Totally. They’re interchangeable in all of our recipes!

    This was soooo good!! I added a little water to my mixture because it was thicker than I would like but this is definitely something I would like to keep in my menu from now on!
