Instant Noodles, meet Instant Zoodles! This healthy melange of veggies is great for work or a quick dinner. It’s also crazy delicious + incredibly nourishing.



  • 2 small zucchini (spiralized)
  • 1 cup kale (cut into ribbons)
  • 1/2 cup carrots (shredded)
  • 1/4 cup green onions (thinly sliced)
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger (grated)
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 3 cups vegetable broth (divided)
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup pepitas
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • pinch red pepper flakes, optional


  1. Divide the spiralized zucchini between two quart-size mason jars or another 4 cup container with tight-fitting lid. 
  2. Divide the kale, carrots, green onions, ginger, garlic, and sesame oil between the jars. Top with lid and refrigerate until ready to serve. 
  3. To serve, heat 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth and add 1/2 tablespoon tamari. Pour over the veggies in the jar. Let stand for 5 minutes. 
  4. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons each pepitas and sunflower seeds, and a pinch of red pepper flakes, if using. Eat while warm.*


*These measurements are for one serving/one jar. If you’re making both servings at the same time, simply double the ingredients and divide equally amongst the two jars.
