Instructions
  1. Combine all sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Mix well, add water to thin if needed.
  2. In a large dry skillet/pan, toast sesame seeds for 30 seconds to 1 minute over high heat. Toss constantly while roasting to make sure they do not burn.
  3. In same skillet or pan, heat cooking oil over medium heat. Stir in onions, bell pepper, garlic and chili pepper (if using). Cook for 3 minutes, stir regularly
  4. Add tomatoes and cook for 3 minutes more. Stir regularly.
  5. Then add zucchini noodles and cook until heated through. This will take about 3-5 minutes. Stir regularly.
  6. Lastly, add sauce and stir well until coated and heated through.
  7. Serve with toasted sesame seeds on top.
Recipe Notes
  • If you don't have a spiralizer, the easiest way to use a vegetable peeler is to hold the zucchini down on a flat surface and slide from top to bottom to make ribbons. A vegetable peeler will make flat fettuccini-like strands/ribbons while a spiralizer (or julienne peeler) will make spaghetti-like strands. We used a spiralizer for this recipe. Click here for more info on how to spiralize veggies.

  • Tamari and soy sauce share a similar color and flavor, and are both a byproduct of fermented soybeans. The only difference, Tamari is made without wheat and doesn’t contain any gluten.
