Ingredients

  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 2 Tablespoons (30 g) butter
  • 3 large cloves garlic , minced (or to taste)
  • 3/4 cup (75 g) parmesan cheese (approximately)
  • kosher salt , to taste
  • black pepper , to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml) red chili flakes

Equipment

Instructions 

  • Cut zucchini into spirals or noodle strands using the vegetable spiralizer or julienne peeler. Set aside noodles.
  • Heat large pan on medium-high heat. Melt butter, then add garlic. Cook garlic until fragrant and translucent, about 30 seconds. Don't let the garlic burn.
    Add zucchini noodles and cook until tender, about 3-5 minutes. Zucchini noodles cook really fast, so taste a strand as you cook and decide how firm or "al-dente" you want the zucchini. Don't overcook the zucchini noodles or else they'll become mush.
  • Remove the pan from the heat, add parmesan cheese and season generously with salt and pepper to taste. Add chili flakes then serve warm.
