Sesame Almond Butter Zucchini Noodles
1/2 cup smooth almond butter (I used natural peanut butter)
3 Tblsp low sodium soy sauce or gluten free Tamari
1 Tblsp honey
1 tsp toasted sesame oil
1 Tblsp lime juice
1 Tblsp water
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup slivered almonds or peanuts (plus more for garnish)
3 small zucchini, spiralized
3/4 cup chopped scallions, green and white parts
2 tsp white sesame seeds
chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish
Combine almond butter, gluten free tamari or soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, lime juice, water, salt and pepper into a food processor then pulse until creamy and transfer to a small bowl. (I just mixed with a fork in a small bowl).
Place the zucchini noodles into a medium bowl with the scallions. Add the almond butter sauce and nuts and toss to combine thoroughly. Top with sesame seeds, extra chopped nuts and chopped cilantro. Serve immediately. EnJOY!
