    These peanutty noodles don’t even need to be cooked. Have this dish as a snack, or add a little protein (shrimp rocks!) to make it a meal!

    1. To make the sauce, in a small bowl, combine soy sauce, rice vinegar, powdered peanut butter/peanut flour, sesame oil, sweetener, garlic, and ginger. Using a fork, whisk until uniform.

    2. Using a spiral vegetable slicer, cut zucchini into spaghetti-like noodles. (If you don’t have a spiral veggie slicer, peel zucchini into super-thin strips, rotating the zucchini after each strip.) Roughly chop for shorter noodles.

    3. Place zucchini noodles in a medium bowl. Add sauce, and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 15 minutes.

    4. Give mixture a stir, and top with scallions and sesame seeds.
