Garlic Sesame Zoodles (vegan) / Špageti od tikvica sa češnjakom i sezamom (veganski)

I am very reluctant about purchasing new kitchen gadgets, but vegetable spiralizer was a pretty cool buy. Of course, you can make zoodles with a mandolin, box grater or even a potato peeler, but spiralizer makes the process so much faster and easier. Sure enough, I got the cheapest one from E-bay for about 3.00 bucks. It gets the job done and thus is an investment well made.

This whole dish is whipped up in about 10 minutes, including all the chopping and cleaning up. It is the weeknight meal perfection.

METHOD:

Wash, pat dry and push zucchini through spiralizer with skin intact. To a skillet on high heat, add olive oil and crushed garlic and briefly cook, merely to slightly soften. Then add sesame seeds and toss for a few seconds. Dump in the zoodles and stir-fry for a few minutes, until zucchini is heated up. Stir in sweet Thai chili sauce, sesame oil, salt and pepper and serve immediately, with avocado slices arranged on top.

Nisam niti malo sklona nabavi novog kuhinjskog pribora, ali spiralizator je bio super investicija. Zoodlse (špagete od tikvica) možete napraviti i sa mandolinom, ribežom, pa čak i običnom gulilicom za krumpir, ali spiralizator tu proceduru olakšava i ubrzava. Naravno, ja sam kupila neki najjeftiniji na E-bayu za oko 3,00 dolara. Ali služi svrsi, tako da se kupnja isplatila.

Ovo cijelo jelo je napravljeno u kojih 10 minuta, uključujući i svo rezanje i pranje suđa. Savršena večerica za preko tjedna.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 1 porciju / 5,89 kn)

1 srednja tikvica (2,00 kn)

1 žlica maslinovog ulja (0,33 kn)

2 češnja češnjaka, sitno sjeckana (0,50 kn)

1 žlica sjemenki sezama (0,25 kn)

1 žlica tajlandskog slatkog chili umaka (1,00 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (0,25 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,05 kn)

¼ avokada, oguljena i narezana na tanke ploške (1,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, posušite kuhinjskim ručnikom i naspiralizirajte tikvicu skupa sa kožom. U tavi na jakoj vatri kratko popržite češnjak s uljem, samo da mrvicu omekša. Dodajte sezam i kratko promiješajte. Ubacite zoodlse, pa pržite miješajući koju minutu, dok se tikvica samo ne ugrije. Umiješajte tajlandski čili umak, sezamovo ulje, sol i papar, pa odmah poslužite sa kriškama avokada posloženim po vrhu.
