  • 2 zucchini(s)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Thai Peanut Satay Sauce, Spicy-Hot
  • 1 tbsp Sesame Tahini, Unsalted
  • 1 tbsp Lime Juice
  • 1 tsp Ginger Root
  • 1/3 cup Snow Peas
  • 1/3 cup Orange Bell Pepper
  • 1 tsp Black Sesame Seeds
  • 2 tbsp Cilantro


1 Cut the zucchini lengthwise into thin, spaghetti-like strips.
2 Add the zucchini to a 2-quart microwave-safe dish.
3 Stir together the satay sauce, tahini, lime juice, soy sauce, and ginger in a small bowl until smooth. Pour the sauce over the zucchini and toss to coat.
4 Cover the dish with unbleached parchment paper and microwave on high until the vegetables are done, about 4 minutes (for al dente) to 5 minutes (for softened). Remove from the microwave and let stand covered for 5 minutes to complete the cooking process.
5 Add the snow peas and bell pepper, toss to combine, and adjust seasoning. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and cilantro, and serve immediately.
