Everyone loves a good stirfry. In this zucchini noodle stirfry, I’ve created this easy, go-to vegetarian recipe that you can add your favorite protein to. There’s egg for a protein boost in this simple stirfry. If you’re craving more protein, try adding chicken, shrimp, or pork!

The zucchini noodles, broccoli, and spiralized bell pepper absorb the teriyaki sauce, making every bite flavorful. The teriyaki sauce is made from scratch with very few ingredients. The secret to making a thick and delicious teriyaki sauce? Arrowroot powder.

Arrowroot powder is a plant-based starch that offers more nutritional benefits than corn starch, but has the same effects – it thickens sauces. If you haven’t used arrowroot powder in your cooking yet, now’s the time to try it! You’ll never look back. You can use it to thicken all types of sauces like cheesey sauces, Asian sauces, and dairy-free dessert sauces.

Zucchini noodles are a great substitute for Asian takeout dishes, because they have the same consistency as a lo-mein noodle and absorb flavors just the same. You won’t miss traditional noodles in this healthier, lightened up stirfry!

  1. Hi there I cooked this tonight for supper but it didnt turn out the best. I was looking forward to it after seeing you make it on your Instagram story, but mine turned out watery and the sauce had a great consistency but it mostly tasted like ginger. I think the vegetables released too much water. I will try this again though when I get a good wok!
    • Oh no, I'm sorry to hear this! I made it three separate times and never had this experience! Perhaps you are cooking your noodles too long and they are becoming soggy? And some people have different palates for ginger (my husband finds it overpowering, for example!) Try reducing the ginger next time you make the sauce! And perhaps you need to drain your noodles in a colander before adding the sauce next time! Hope this helps!
  2. Thank you for this Zucchini recipe. This looks delicious, seasonal and colorful. Will definitely try it tonight.
  3. Hello! As a true vegan and a health-conscious person, I thank you for this recipe and for your useful gadget. I made this yesterday using Inspiralizer and it turned out perfect!
