Spicy Sesame Zoodles with Crispy Tofu! SUPER easy recipe with familiar ingredients – soy sauce, peanut butter, sesame oil, garlic, zucchini, and tofu. Vegan / Vegetarian

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Total time: 25 minutes
Servings: 6 Servings

INGREDIENTS:


chili sesame sauce:
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup sesame oil
1/3 cup light low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 tablespoons chili paste (like sambal oelek)
2 tablespoons sugar
1 clove garlic, minced
1 knob of fresh ginger, peeled and grated
zoodles and tofu
12 ounces extra firm tofu
4–6 zucchini
sesame seeds and scallions for topping

INSTRUCTIONS:


• Chili Sesame Sauce: Shake all the sauce ingredients in a jar or toss them in the food processor and give them a whirl. If you’re going to have this cold, refrigerate your sauce for a while.

• Tofu: Press excess moisture out of the tofu. Cut into bite sized pieces. Heat a tiny bit of oil in a nonstick pan. Add the tofu and stir fry until golden brown. Add about 1/2 cup sauce and simmer until the sauce starts to evaporate / absorb into the tofu and becomes browned in the pan. Keep gently flipping and scraping browned bits off the bottom – after a while, you should end up with nicely golden brown tofu with some little yummy browned bits from the sauce.

• All Together: Spiralize your zucchini and toss with about 1/4 cup sauce per serving. Top with tofu, sesame seeds, and scallions. Serve immediately.
