Cold Sesame Zucchini Noodles


Cold Sesame Zucchini Noodles

I call a lot of things I love “stupid.” My favorite clothes are “stupid cute.” My favorite mode of transportation is “stupid long walks.” My dog is “stupid.” And Cold Sesame Zucchini Noodles are stupid on a whole new level: stupid healthy, stupid easy, stupid good. Alright, I think I just reached my quota for that word. Like for the rest of my life. Can I say my clothes are totally fucking dumb now or does that mean something else? It means I’m a style maven? Finally. I’ve been meaning to talk to everyone about that anyways.

Cold Sesame Zucchini Noodles

So let’s break down how totally fucking dumb (I’m an Early Adopter) this recipe is…

HEALTHY

This is so very healthy! You have raw veggies acting as noodles so you can get that hot summer bod back or whatever the kids are saying instead of “ewww carbs.” It also features some good fats by way of sesame oil and even some protein! We’re eating an entire zucchini here!

EASY

I got home from school the other night at 10:30pm and whipped this up in all of like 10 minutes. In comparison, just a mile down the street in opposite land where things are hard, my boyfriend spent an hour and a half cooking a pot roast. I win.

GOOD

Self-explanatory. I was resisting the urge to just drink the leftover liquids. I am so, so strong. And good looking. Things sound so true when I just say them!

    This looks so great. I’m dying to try to make zucchini noodles but what is the tool you used to get them cut so thin and perfectly straight?

    1. It’s called a Spiral Cutter. If you go down to the directions, there’s a link where it says “spiral cut your zucchini(s)” that’ll show you an example of a spiral cutter. I think there are two main designs for them. Get one! They’re great and pretty cheap.

  3. Oh, I have to get me this Spiral Cutter to make my food look this good…amazing!😉
