Peanut Zoodles with Grilled Broccoli

This spiralized version of peanut noodles (using zucchini noodles) will satisfy all of your noodle cravings! With grilled broccoli, crunchy edamame, and a creamy peanut sauce, this easy meal is both nutritious and delicious.

Peanut Zoodles with Grilled Broccoli

Satisfy your noodle cravings with zucchini noodles tossed in an addictively tasty peanut sauce, inspired by How Sweet Eats. When I saw Jessica’s recipe, I knew I had to #inspiralizeit, so I made a few tweaks and here we are!

Peanut Zoodles with Grilled Broccoli

Since it’s summertime and our gardens are overflowing with zucchinis (or our CSA baskets are jam packed with them!), I used zucchini noodles as our noodle substitute and because the sauce is thicker here, it’s the perfect complement to zucchini noodles, because the moisture that’s released from the zucchini thins out the thick sauce just enough.

Peanut Zoodles with Grilled Broccoli

The broccoli is grilled for a summertime flavor and so that we don’t have to turn our ovens on! But, if you’re making this and you have no grill or it’s not grill season, you can roast the broccoli at 425 degrees for 20 minutes.

Edamame is chopped (or pulsed in a food processor) for a crunchy, protein-packed topping to these noodles, along with fragrant cilantro and scallions, but you could also add some crushed peanuts for more peanut depth of flavor.

And of course, if you like a little more protein and meat with your noodles, you can toss in some finely shredded chicken in with the noodles as you warm them up in the sauce. However you enjoy these noodles, you will love them and they’ll become part of your meal rotation!

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time30 mins

Ingredients

  • 2-3 cups broccoli florets
  • olive oil
  • garlic powder
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 medium zucchinis
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • ½ cup frozen edamame beans
  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ cup warm water
  • 1/2 tablespoon sriracha if you want spice!
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 3 scallions thinly sliced
  • 1 handful cilantro

Instructions

  • Place the broccoli on a heated grill at 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes, tossing every 5 minutes.
  • While the broccoli is grilling, spiralize your zucchinis on Blade D and your bell pepper on Blade A. Trim all of the noodles. Cook your edamame per your preference (in a small pot with a bit of boiling water or in the microwave) and place in a food processor or chop by hand until chunky and chopped.
  • Then, prepare your sauce. In a large pot, heat the sesame oil over medium high heat. Add the garlic and ginger and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the peanut butter, soy sauce, water, sriracha (if using), lime juice, and honey. Stir until smooth and then add the zucchini noodles and red bell pepper and stir together to warm through to al dente, about 3 minutes.
  • Using tongs, divide the noodles into bowls and set the sauce aside. Top with broccoli, scallions, cilantro, and edamame. Serve immediately and expect some wateriness from the zucchini noodles.

Meaghan says:
If you plug the ingredients into a tracker you'll be able to have an accurate number!
Dani says:
I made this last night, and while I did really enjoy it (the sauce is so good and easy!) I do think the Zoodles are better substituted for real noodles instead. They made the dish too watery and honestly not substantial enough (it’s crazy low cal). That being said if you’re looking for something really light, this would be perfect!
Meaghan says:

I’ve got these BUFFALO TOFU WRAPS on the menu for next week - there’s a secret ingredient to make the tofu crisp up in the air fryer (you’ll see in the video!) 🥑🥬🥕⁣

grab the recipe on the blog! 🙌🏼⁣

ramen is the perfect meal for this season of life. it’s cozy, comforting, filling, and satisfying. 🙏🏼 needless to say, I’ve been eating tons of ramen bowls lately, and I’m extra excited to share this one with you, a take on Japanese miso ramen: Miso Noodles with Smoky Tempeh (using @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh) and Kale. 🥬 🍜 #LightlifePartner⁣

this is kind of like two recipes in one, because this smoky tempeh is good on everything – in sandwiches, on salads, in grain bowls - it’s my go-to flavor when I’m making tempeh (especially for those who aren’t as far along on the tempeh train as I am.) the other recipe is the simplest miso ramen with kale, which you’ll be making over and over again. 👏🏼 also, you can simply sub in @lightlifefoods’ Smoky Tempeh product here, to save time!⁣

you can find @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh at @acmemarkets or @wholefoodsmarket, but use their Store Locator on their site to find out where it’s sold near you. 🛒⁣

recipe below 👇🏼👇🏼⁣

Miso Ramen with Smoky Tempeh and Kale⁣
Serves: 4⁣

Ingredients⁣
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil⁣
8-ounce package @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh, cubed⁣
¼ cup soy sauce, low sodium⁣
2 tablespoons maple syrup⁣
¼ teaspoon smoked paprika⁣
1 teaspoon liquid smoke⁣
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder⁣
2 garlic cloves, minced⁣
1-inch knob ginger, minced⁣
4 cups vegetable broth⁣
1 tablespoon miso paste⁣
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce⁣
4 cups finely chopped kale⁣
12 ounces ramen noodles⁣

Directions⁣
Heat half the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tempeh slices and cook for 5 minutes until browned, stirring frequently.⁣

While tempeh cooks, stir together ¼ cup of water, soy sauce, maple syrup, smoked paprika, liquid smoke, and garlic powder. Pour that over the cooked tempeh and stir to coat. Let cook another 5 minutes or until moisture is evaporated and tempeh is browned. Set aside on a parchment lined plate.⁣

Heat the remaining oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the broth and 2 cups of water and bring to a boil over high heat.
