TERIYAKI NOODLES & ZOODLES

TWO VERSIONS OF AN EASY TERIYAKI DISH

My boy loves him some asian food, but to avoid going to get Hy-Vee Chinese every week I have started to implement some dishes into our weekly plan. This dish is a quick 30 minute fix up and easy to turn a little bit healthier by swapping out the noodles for zoodles!

Start with zucchini and turn them into zoodles - I either use my kitchen aid attachment or this hand held little guy. Both work like a charm. 

Now time for the sauce...

1/3 cup reduced sodium soy saucE , 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed, 1 tb minced garlic, 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger, 2 tablespoons honey + h20 + Corn starch slurry 

1/3 cup reduced sodium soy saucE , 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed, 1 tb minced garlic, 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger, 2 tablespoons honey + h20 + Corn starch slurry 

Add some steamed broccoli, cooked soba noodles, and shredded chicken - top with sesame noodles andddd DONE!
