Prep Time Cook Time Total Time Servings
10 mins 15 mins 25 mins 4 servings


  • 4 medium zucchini, spiralized (about 6 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup snap peas
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped green onions and sesame seeds for garnish

Note: If you don't have a spiralizer, you can use a julienne peeler or a knife to cut the zucchini into thin noodle-like strips.

Cooking Instructions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the minced garlic and cook for about 1 minute until fragrant.
  3. Add the sliced red and yellow bell peppers, mushrooms, and snap peas to the skillet. Stir-fry for about 3-4 minutes until the vegetables are slightly tender.
  4. Push the vegetables to one side of the skillet and add the spiralized zucchini noodles to the other side. Cook for 2-3 minutes, tossing occasionally, until the zucchini noodles are just tender.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, red pepper flakes (if using), salt, and pepper.
  6. Pour the sauce over the vegetables and zucchini noodles in the skillet. Stir well to coat everything evenly.
  7. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until the sauce is heated through.
  8. Remove from heat and garnish with chopped green onions and sesame seeds.
