  • 8 oz zucchini noodles, raw
  • 1/2 lb sautéed ground turkey – can swap in chicken or fish
  • Toppings: sesame seeds, scallions, limes, red pepper flakes to garnish if desired.


  • In your plate, add 2 oz cooked rice noodles 2 oz zucchini noodles, 3 oz ground turkey on top.
  • For the sauce, add the remaining ingredients to a blender or food processor. Process until smooth.
