The sesame almond zoodle bowl is the perfect vehicle for this amazing sauce. Peanut sauce has been one of my favorite dipping and drizzling sauces for everything from low carb egg rolls to an overflowing bowl of stir fry veggies. Sadly, I’ve recently begun reducing my peanut intake. I’ve been focusing on more recipes that incorporate keto-friendly nuts and nut butters like cashews and almonds and I have fallen in love!
Swapping traditional peanut butter with almond butter for this sweet and savory sauce is the perfect stand-in for all of my beloved Asian-inspired recipes. It pairs beautifully with almost any stir fry veggie you pour it on and can be altered to be spicy or mild.
The best part? This zoodle bowl is almost better reheated the second day when all of the moisture from the noodles mixes and thickens with the sauce for an even creamier, dreamier, zoodle bowl!
Shredded cabbage and broccoli are stir-fried in just a touch of sesame oil and are tossed with zucchini noodles to make this “zoodle bowl” a quick and easy weeknight meal.
Topped with the creamy almond butter sauce and crunchy chopped almonds, this bowl is brimming with healthy fats and packed with filling fiber. Serve this as a side with your favorite chicken or for my vegetarian friends, pair it with a hard-boiled soy egg!

*This item usually comes as a bag blend that includes julienned carrot. As carrots are not recommended on keto, I remove the few carrot pieces that are included which is less work than shredding the other vegetables. You can certainly shred broccoli and stems by hand to accomplish this as well!
