Keto Peanut Thai Noodles (Copycat Noodles & Co Indonesian Peanut Saute)

I created this ketogenic Peanut Thai Noodles recipe for someone craving Noodles & Company's Indonesian Peanut Saute.  It uses zoodles instead of pasta, but the flavor is ALL there!

I absolutely love this recipe.  Once I created it, I ate it every day for a week.  Part of the reason I ate it every day was because I got really good at making zoodles!  And this peanut sauce is so fast, I literally make lunch in under 7 minutes - and a really good lunch at that!

If you want my best tips on making zoodles, check out this recipe first on the process: spaghetti zoodles.  It's actually very simple, but the bottom line is that zucchini is watery, especially once you cook it.  Starting with smaller zucchini is better as it's less watery.  Then, you cook for the minimum amount of time - which is about 4 minutes on a medium heat (unless you like mushy noodles, then cook for 5 minutes).  You don't want to use any oil when cooking.  And you don't want to add any additional liquid - so even your sauce should be very thick like a paste before adding to the zoodles.  If you still need to purchase a spiralizer, this one from OXO is the one we use.  It's handheld, but if you're cooking for one person then that's all you need!

Just thinking about this Thai zoodle recipe makes me hungry!  But it's honestly so easy to make.  Like I said above, the peanut sauce should be more of a paste - so very thick.  All that is included is some peanut butter, soy sauce, chili garlic sauce, a little bit of sesame oil and some optional erythritol if you like these noodles on the sweet side.  (See pictures below for how it should look.)  I won't lie, I enjoyed these peanut zoodles sweet so I would recommend adding 1/2 tsp to 1 tsp of granular erythritol per serving, depending on your desired sweetness level.

Microwave the sauce just enough to warm it so that you can mix the ingredients easier.  Once you add the zoodles into the bowl, the peanut paste will coat the zoodles nicely - just keep turning over the noodles into the paste until everything is coated.

If you kept to the instructions of only cooking the zoodles at 4 minutes on medium  heat with no added oil, this keto Thai zoodle recipe will turn out awesome!!!

In this recipe I used chicken and that is what's included in the macros, but feel free to substitute a lean steak meat cut into thin slices.
