Ingredients

  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup sliced red bell pepper
  • 2 scallions thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/4 cup dry roasted peanuts

For the sauce:

Directions

  1. Slice the ends off the zucchini and secure it to your spiralizer. Spiralize the zucchini into long noodles and transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Thinly slice the cabbage and pepper, either with a knife or mandolin slicer, and add that to the bowl with the zucchini noodles, along with the scallions, cilantro, quinoa and peanuts.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until it’s thin enough to pour -- you’re looking for the consistency of a creamy dressing.
  4. Pour dressing over the vegetables and toss to coat. Transfer to two bowls, sprinkle with a bit more peanuts and cilantro and enjoy!
