Super simple, slightly spicy zucchini noodles.  Perfect paired with some protein for a light lunch or dinner.


  • 1 large zucchini
  • 1/4 cup packed peeled carrot
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced purple cabbage
  • 1-2 small red bell peppers
  • 1 tsp finely chopped raw ginger
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp pink salt
  • Sesame seeds for garnish (optional)


  1. Wash zucchini and cut off end without the stem.  Use a spirilizer to make the zucchini into noodles.
  2. Pat the zucchini dry with a paper towel or napkin to remove some of the moisture.
  3. In a large frying pan, add olive oil.  Place frying pan on stove-top and heat to medium temperature.
  4. Once pan is hot, add carrot, cabbage, bell pepper and ginger.  Sprinkle Cajun seasoning and salt on top and stir a few times.  Cook on medium heat, stirring frequently, for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Increase stove top temperature to medium-high heat and add zoodles to frying pan.  Cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  6. Remove from pan, garnish with sesame seeds (optional) and serve immediately.
