How To Make Vegan Miso Zucchini Noodles
This is such an easy meal. Spiralize and chop the veggies, blend the naturally dairy-free and gluten-free sauce, then toss it all together before serving. You won't even break a sweat!
Making Ahead/Meal Prep
For optimum freshness, prep all of the individual components and store them in airtight containers in the fridge. This can be done 2 or 3 days in advance. Toss the vegetables together with the sauce at the time of serving.
Vegan Miso Zucchini Noodles are best eaten fresh and I recommend only making as much as you need. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 24 hours but they will get a little wet as the zucchini releases its moisture.
Zucchini noodles are noodles made from raw zucchini that is spiralized (or cut) into long, thin zucchini pasta/spaghetti-type strips. "Zoodles" make a great, naturally gluten-free alternative to regular pasta, can be enjoyed raw or very lightly cooked, and are really light and refreshing. Perfect for the warmer summer months.
Using a spiralizer is definitely the easiest and quickest way to make zoodles, but if you don't have one it is possible to make them by using a mandoline, potato peeler, or a sharp knife. Cut (or peel) the zucchini into long thin strips lengthways, then layer the strips on top of each other and slice into long thin noodle-like strips with a knife.
Yes, simply omit the sesame oil or use a little tahini instead.
