Carrot & Courgette/Zucchini Noodles with Thai Lime & Peanut sauce ~ No-cook
I loved this idea so much, what idea? Home-made noodles without any flour nor any gluten and kneading of course, and WITHOUT any cooking lol, :0
What’s all about?
I got this idea from Susan’s.
The secret is the ‘Spirelli’ ~ my new gadget toy, I bought it from Lakeland . With this ‘spirelli’, you can create endless julienne strips of carrot, radish, cucumber, courgette/ zucchini or any kinds of other firm vegetables, it has two different julienne size to create. It can have endless fun from it. Meanwhile, it has another model is called Zyliss Julienne Peeler, just similar to ‘Spirelli’, but more expensive, and for me they are the same, one is handheld one and the other is stand still one.
But, if you don’t have a spirelli, you can get a similar effect by using a mandolin to shred or you can use an ordinary vegetable peeler to make the ‘noodles’.
Today I like to make ‘carrot and courgette noodles with a special Thai peanut sauce. This sauce will play an important part of this dish.
Carrot & Courgette/Zucchini Noodles with Thai Lime & Peanut sauce
- 1 Carrot, peeled
- 1 Courgette/ zucchini, wahded
- 1/2 Green pepper, sliced
- 1 tbsp Crunchy peanut butter ( you can use smooth peanut butter )
- 1 tbsp Water
- 1 tbsp Lime juice or Lemon juice
- 1/2 tbsp Soy sauce or Fish sauce
- 1 tsp Hot sauce
- 1 1/2 tbsp Coconut milk
- 1 tsp Fresh ginger, grated or finely chopped
- 1 tsp Sesame oil
- 1 clove Garlic, finely chopped ( optional )
- 1 tbsp Fresh coriander, finely chopped
- 1/2 tsp Tamarind paste ( optional )
- 1/2 tsp Raw sugar or coconut sugar
- Use the Spirelli to shred the carrot and courgette/ zucchini, and sliced the green pepper. Place a kitchen towel to put underneath the ‘noodles’ for absorb the moisture.
- For the Thai peanut butter sauce: Mix the rest of all the ingredients together into another bowl.
- Place the ‘noodles’ on a serving plate, top with the Thai sauce and serve cold.
- If you don’t want serve the ‘noodles’ cold, ( I knew some people like hot food ), you can toss the ‘noodles’ into a pot of boiling water for a minute, drained and serve.
