This is an easy, FODMAP-friendly, low calorie and carb dinner for nights when you don’t want to be bothered and/or have macros to hit.
Gluten-free (check your labels), FODMAP, keto (especially if you increase the fat), could be Paleo if you use coconut aminos, but that will be higher FODMAPs
Easy Japanese-Style Chicken Zoodles
1 large zucchini, spiraled into zoodles
2 tsp. sesame oil
1 Tbsp. soy sauce or tamari (coconut aminos will be higher in FODMAPs)
In a large skillet over medium-high, heat the sesame oil. When it starts to shimmer, add the zoodles and stir-fry until just beginning to soften. Add the soy sauce and continue cooking until the zoodles are to your liking. I like mine still a bit toothsome (or at least not mushy).
While that’s working, whisk together:
1 Tbsp. sesame oil
1.5 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
Juice of 1 lime
Pinch of red pepper flakes
When the zoodles are ready, add to the sauce and top with 4 ounces shredded poached chicken and 1 tsp. sesame seeds per serving.
Serves 2 as a light dinner
