This dish is my latest obsession! It’s easy to make and requires very little cooking. They make a great appetizer or side dish and can be made into a substantial main course by adding a source of protein like chicken or shrimp. I’d even recommend these for meal prep as they last 4-5 days in the fridge!

You can switch up the vegetables based on what’s in season and what you have on hand. If you follow a grain-free diet, this dish is also delicious without the brown rice noodles. You can just double the zucchini noodles. I hope you enjoy this dish as much as I do!
