So tell me, have you jumped on the spiralizer train yet? It took me a while to make the leap (always the last one on board!) and now I don't know what took me so long. Maybe I'm a total weirdo, but turning vegetables into noodles is so strangely satisfying. #StrangeGirl

In this carrot noodle stir fry, I've used my super awesome Paderno Spiralizer to make long, twisty carrot noodles that mimic (at least in look) spaghetti noodles. If you don't have a spiralizer, you can use a vegetable peeler to make long strips of carrots. It will change the look of the carrot noodle stir fry, but the taste will be the same.

Now I'm not going to try and convince you that carrot noodles mimic real noodles in taste. They totally don't. They taste like carrots and have a little crunch to them, which I love. I also love that I can twirl them around on my fork or wind them around my chopsticks just like I can real noodles. Who's with me?

Carrot noodle stir fry for the win!

Ingredients

The Ginger Sesame Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce, gluten-free, if needed
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon each: dark sesame oil and corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon each: brown sugar or honey, Sriracha, and neutral flavoured oil.
  • 2 inch piece of ginger, finely minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • Juice from 1 lime

The Crispy Tofu

  • Enough oil to cover the bottom of a medium sized frying pan
  • 16 ounce package of medium tofu, cut into squares
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce, gluten-free, if needed

The Carrot Noodle Stir Fry

  • 3 large Asian carrots, or 5 large regular carrots
  • 1 tablespoon neutral-flavored oil
  • A few handfuls of baby bok choy
  • Cilantro, lime, and sesame seeds, to garnish

Instructions 

  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together all of the Ginger Sesame Sauce ingredients.
    2 tablespoons soy sauce, 2 tablespoons rice vinegar, 1 tablespoon each: dark sesame oil and corn starch, 1 teaspoon each: brown sugar or honey, Sriracha, and neutral flavoured oil., 2 inch piece of ginger, 3 cloves garlic, Juice from 1 lime
  • Heat a large, non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Fry the tofu on all sides until it is brown and crispy. Remove the tofu from the pan and place it into a small dish and toss with soy sauce.
    16 ounce package of medium tofu, 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • While the tofu is frying, use your spiralizer to make noodles from the carrots. You could also use a julienne peeler or cut the carrots into long, thin strips with a sharp knife.
    3 large Asian carrots
  • Heat the oil in a wok or a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the carrot noodles and baby bok choy and toss a few times. Cover and let the noodles cook for about 2 minutes. Just when the noodles start to soften, add the Ginger Sesame Sauce and toss to coat. Once the sauce thickens (in about 1 minute), remove the pan from the heat and stir through the crispy tofu.
    A few handfuls of baby bok choy, 1 tablespoon neutral-flavored oil
  • Serve topped with any or all of the garnishes.
    Cilantro, lime, and sesame seeds, to garnish
