Happy New Year!
I am so excited to share my latest creation with you in my first post of 2014.
This Sesame Sauce truly is sensational. It is salty, and smoky, and garlicky, and it feels like silk on your tongue. When I was eating it, I told The Captain that I could eat it every day. That is not something I think very often... but this sauce is THAT good. Really.
I have been eating zuke noodles ever since I got my new spiralizer this past week. The first two times I had them, I made sauces based on extra lean ground beef and tomatoes… different veggies and spices… but similar. I loved them. But I wanted something different. A girl just cannot eat ground beef every day, no matter how lean it is.
I got The Captain to operate the spiralizer… I was just too excited!
A huge plateful of noodles from half a medium zucchini… and I ate the whole thing!
My serving the second time trying them was a bit more conservative… I only at about half and put the other half in the fridge where they keep nicely for a couple of days.
Look how long just one noodle can become!
I made up the sauce and tried it before adding the garlic, and it tasted great… but the addition of the garlic put it right over the top! Try it both ways. I know you will love it, too.
If you are avoiding gluten, be sure to use tamari soy sauce, which is wheat free. If you are eating truly Paleo, you will want to use coconut aminos. It’s all up to you.
I am sure this would be great on real pasta too. If that is your preference, do give it a try.

I made sure to spoon up ALL the sauce… I suppose I could use 1/3 instead of 1/2 for each serving… Hmmmmm. But so tasty!
Are you noodle fan?
