If you’ve never tried Zoodles, a.k.a. zucchini noodles, OMG! You.are.missing.out!

But, hey hey hey, sweet friends! TGIF! Weekend plans include catching up with my DVR (I’m seriously itching for a Real Housewives marathon), then coffeeing with my lovely friends, and I’m also thinking about possibly sleeping in 2 days in a row. I’m dreamin’ big!

ZUCCHINI NOODLES

In other news, I’m spiralizing zucchini and making you believe that you’re eating noodles! Scouts honor, the texture is so spot on that you’ll definitely trick yourself into believing that you’re slurping up pasghetti. You’ll see.

Today’s vibrant and delicious recipe is sponsored by my kitchen-gadget-faves, OXO! Their new Hand-Held Spiralizer is my new favorite kitchen toy because I get to make pasta that’s not really pasta, but it tastes like pasta?! (say what?!?) Okay. It’s also great for making zoodles, obvi, curly fries, salads, desserts, etc… Best of all, it’s perfect for all my low-carbin’ friends, diabetics, and for those staying far away from gluten. The spiralizer has us all taken care of.

STIR FRY ZUCCHINI NOODLES

There’s so much of good stuff going on in here, guys. And it’s soooo easy to make! And and! It all takes about 20 minutes. Winning!

Sidenote: I have to brag because this was my first time that I worked with onions and didn’t cry. The spiralizer held it all in and just let me be free. From the bottom of my tear ducts, thank you.

Secondly, how pretty are these zoodles? RIGHT? All I wanted to do was just toss them into pasta sauce and go at it. BUT I held back because I was really looking forward to this stir fry.

Can I just tell you about how absurdly delicious this was? At first, I didn’t have very big expectations for this meal, but man was I wrong! Friends, this was freakin’ awesome! AND it’s not delivery. It’s homemade. High-Five!

I also wanna come out clean and tell you that my love affair with this spiralizer is super strong. I’ve already zoodled up some sweet potatoes for ya, fresh beets, and something else, but I can’t remember what it was. My brain is still on vacation…

Have a happy weekend!

ENJOY!

    Hi Katerina!
    I had some store bought zucchini tri-color noodles in my refrigerator and I wasn’t sure what to do with them so I tried your recipe.
    WOW!!! This was such a surprise. It was Zee Best! It was so tasty, I would make it for company anytime. My 17 year old daughter loved them too. She said they were very “unique tasting”. If she could she would live on Sushi and Japanese food every day … but it can get very expensive to buy. I never leave recipe reviews but this one was truly a winner! Thanks so much!
    Blessings,
    Denise

    Thanks Katerina! I made these Zoodles tonight with my new Pampered Chef Spiralizer (which I love) Hubby is on Weight Watchers and this is our new favorite recipe!

  3. Nikky

    This recipe is unbelievably delicious and I’m not a fan of zucchini. I’m seriously in love with how good this recipe is. Thank you!

  4. Natalie

    I just made this for lunch today. SOOOOO good! I did add about 1 TBSP peanut butter and sprinkled some lightly salted peanuts on top. Definitely going to be a go-to for a quick, easy, healthy yet satisfying lunch!

  5. Susan

    This was really good! I just got my spiralizer and I think next time I will just chop my onions cause I didnโ€™t like them so stringy but the flavor was fantastic !

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi!
      I always do it! ๐Ÿ˜€ Before you start cooking, if you wring the water out of the zucchini real well, it shouldn’t be too soggy/wet.

  6. Heather

    My 17 year son and I give this recipe 2 thumbs up! It was super tasty! I threw in some chicken and fresh mushrooms so I ended up with a one pan meal. We will definitely add it to our make again list!

  7. Madison

    First time ever making zoodles and made this recipe ; SO SO GOOD !! I never leave reviews but I just had to for this one, it was also my boyfriends first time trying it and loved it! I only made half the recipe bc I wasnโ€™t sure if I would like it and he stole my bowl and insisted I make double next time LOL

  8. Jeanne

    This was delicious! Even my husband, who is super picky, really liked it. Easy and fun to make. Definitely will make it again!

      1. Katerina Petrovska

        Hi! 1 Zucchini is 1 serving, so this would be about 4. I serve it as a side dish to shrimp or chicken, depending on our food-mood. ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. patty beyster

    How do you keep them dry. When ever I cook them they release so much moisture and get mushy. I would l9ve them to have a more pasta texture

  10. AA

    Just saw this recipe and it sounds great. Do you know what the serving size is? One cup…2 cup…1/2 cup ect …ect…. I like to count calories and I just don’t know what to amount to serve myself…thanks

  11. Stephanie jackson

    This is amazing! I added shredded carrots, edamame and snap peas. By chance do you know how many net carbs this recipe is?

  12. Silvia

    This looks amazing, definitely will try it. But first i need to buy gadget ๐Ÿ˜€ Guess i have to buy it from aliexpress and then it will took 2 month to arrive.

  13. Laura

    Thank you for the recipe, it’s nice and easy and SO delish! I’ve made this dish for myself several times, I tweak it here and there adding garlic, chicken, mushrooms.. or whatever I have on hand.. I enjoy it so much that I wanted to introduce it to my man .. so to lessen the fear of rejection, this time I added some spaghetti noodles to the recipe.. he ate the whole thing and loved it ! I’m going to make it again and again with less noodles every time.

  14. Felicia

    Thanks Katerina! I made these Zoodles tonight with my new Pampered Chef Spiralizer (which I love) Hubby is on Weight Watchers and this is our new favorite recipe!

  15. Sarah

    Looks absolutely delicious!! What is the carb count per serving? I know it says low carb, but I’m interested to know what the actually count is. Thanks!

  16. Angela

    Love,love,love this dish!!! First time eating zoodles and OMG, amazing. I sautรฉed red peppers and baby Bella mushrooms and used EVOO instead of vegetable oil. Also, my local grocerer had precut zoodles ready to go. However, I will purchase a spiralizer very soon as I will be making this dish more often. As an avid pasta lover, zoodles are my new favorite pasta substitute. Thanks for sharing.

  17. Renee Birchfield

    This looks amazing! I have a nice spiralizer but forget to use it. I’m curious what you did when you spiralised the sweet potato. That is next on my list to try.

  18. Heather

    O.M.G. first of all i did a few things differently! But first let me just say this is the first time i’ve ever tried zoodles and omg you are so right! THEY ARE AMAZING i can’t even tell they are zucchini! So the things i did differently was: i used butter instead of oil i just like the taste better, i diced my onions (i don’t know why guess i’m just a silly goose) i cooked up some diced chicken thigh meat with some butter and a little bit of teryiaki sauce and some seasonings (i used seasoning salt, paprika, onion power and garlic powder) then when my chicken was done that’s when i added the onion and followed the rest of your directions. ALSO I cut down the recipe so it’s suitable for one person which means I had one helping (a pretty good size) and i saved the rest for my lunch for work tomorrow. THANK YOU SO MUCH for such a fabulous recipe. do you have any recipes for chicken lo mein?

  19. Rebekah

    So excited to make this!! I would like to add chicken to it….do you have any suggestions or specific instructions on how to do that?? Thanks!!!

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi Rebekah! I would say to cut up the chicken into cubes and cook it in the wok before cooking the zucchini. Also, you want to remove the chicken from the wok, wipe it down, and then continue on. I hope this helps!

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi Gabrielle! Yes, that will work, just make sure to squeeze out all the water from the zucchini before adding it to the pan. I hope you’ll enjoy it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Shelly

    Curious as to how you got this to be 116 calories per serving? You state this serves one person, but when I put it in my calorie tracker, it came up as 526 calories, not 116. I got it down to 340 by swapping out the veg oil to EVOO, and using only 1 tablespoon instead of 2. (But EVOO’s not good for a wok, smoke point’s too low.) The only way I got it to amount to 116 calories is by leaving out the oil altogether.

    Just curious if I’m missing something.

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi Shelly! That is supposed to say 4 Servings. I am using a new recipe card on my website, one that is supposed to do the nutritional calculations on its own, but looks like there’s a glitch in the servings suggestion. I’ve been working on getting it fixed, but it’s taking a bit longer. So sorry about the confusion!!

  21. K

    Eating this as you read…wonderful!! First time using wok…. First time with zoodles. I think it was a success… I would serve this to guests ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Janet Pallavicini

    OK OK = Bed Bath has them on sale – do I really need this to add to all my other gadgets? Not hand held like yours or there a difference? th hand held one doesn’t look like it can hold much. Anyway I printed the recipe and I’ll convince my daughter-in-law to try it first..LOL

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      The handheld one is a bit tiring, to be honest. haha ๐Ÿ˜€ I’d rather use the one that I listed… your arm muscles are going to thank me! LOL ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Kat

      Hi….if you haven’t already bought one…do it. I love mine and it is easy. Hard veggies, like carrots have a learning curve, however they will work.

      1. CookingAlly

        I’ve had zucchini noodles before and loved them but they were such a pain to cut… This spiralizer sounds fabulous! Where might one aquire such a gadget?

  23. Meg @ With Salt and Wit

    Big fan of zucchini noodles!! They are so darn verstile! Loving the teriyaki spin on them…I foresee dinner real soon!

  24. Gwen @SimplyHealthyFamily

    I recently purchased a spiralizer and love it! I never thought to stir fry my zoodles ๐Ÿ™‚ I love it!!

  25. Marlynn @ UrbanBlissLife

    I LOVE my OXO hand-held spiralizer! And this recipe looks fantastic. I love the idea of using zucchini noodles in stir fry. Can’t wait to try it!

  26. Chrisy @ Homemade Hooplah

    Love how quickly this come together (7 minute cook time?! Awesome!) and the Hand-Held Spiralizer is way more my speed than some of the other spiralizers I’ve seen. I can’t wait to make this!

  27. Neli @ Delicious Meets Healthy

    I love zoodles! and these stir fry zucchini noodles look terrific! Love the flavors you use, perfect side dish! ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. Faith (An Edible Mosaic)

    I think this might be the best zoodles recipe I’ve ever seen! It seriously looks like something from a restaurant – so yum! And the timing is perfect because I literally just bought my first spiralizer last week. ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Alisa @ Go Dairy Free

    Now these are my kind of zoodles! I’m really not a fan of raw zucchini, and boiled always sounds bland – I could really go for you stir-fried version though!
